It’s Day 2 of 12 Days of Holiday Style! Today I want to chat about what to wear to a casual holiday party at home. As much as I love dressing up, these are some of my favorite types of holiday parties. You get to play board games, indulge in cheese boards and laugh with friends over wine. I always like to have a cozy outfit for the festivities. Here is my four piece, fool-proof outfit formula for casual holiday parties at home:
- Cozy sweater
- Statement earrings
- Stretchy jeans
- Festive shoes
Let’s start on top… You can never go wrong with a cozy sweater. I like roomier ones so I can eat as much cheese as I want at the party (can you tell what my indulgence is?!). And when sweaters are soft to the touch, they’re perfect for hugging friends or cuddling on the couch with your loved one.
Elizabeth and I kicked off the holidays early in Lake Arrowhead our friend Shalice’s gorgeous A-frame. We both went with the same outfit formula in different colors. I wish you could feel my fuzzy turtleneck through the screen. It’s so soft!
Shop Cozy Sweaters
I love a good statement earring for holiday parties. They draw attention to your face and are the only piece of jewelry you need to make any outfit festive, whether it’s a dress or a cozy sweater and jeans.
Shop Statement Earrings
On bottom, both Elizabeth and I went for stretchy skinny jeans. The stretch allows you to indulge in, yes you got it, cheese! Or you can indulge in whatever your guilty pleasure is. To dress up the jeans, I like to throw on a festive shoe. I went with plaid pumps but you could also do flats in a holiday print or shine.
Shop Festive Shoes
Speaking of fun holiday parties at home, I have one coming up and want to bring a board game to play. My all-time favorite is Cranium, but I’d love to try a new one if you have any suggestions!
