Festive Outfits for a Family Holiday Party

Sydne Style shows what to wear to a family holiday party in sparkle sweater

On Day 9 of  12 Days of Holiday Style we’re heading home with what to wear to a family holiday party. Obviously this depends on your family’s dress code. My family lives in San Diego so we’re all about casual holiday party outfits. My friend’s family has fancier cocktail attire. But for something in between, I like the combination of an embellished sweater and festive pant.

An embellished sweater keeps you cozy but still adds just enough sparkle for the holiday season. I thought this beaded love sweater (only $29.99) was quite fitting since family equal loves for me.

If your family is super casual like mine, you can pair the sweater with jeans. But for a little more festive look, I like the sweater with a sparkly pant. I went with sequin pants (on sale for only $24.43). You could also do brocade, velvet or any other material that makes you feel like the holiday season.

    The sweater looks comfy yet festive in combination with these pants. I also loved these statement earrings. They fit well your outfit.

    These outfits are really beautiful, but they do not look festive at all. Sorry for this. Unless this is some street festival you need to think of something more formal for the family.

    Much will depend on what status of the family it is. I mean that if this party is for the upper class family, then you are right. In all other instances it doesn’t really matter. I am from Oriental part of the world and here you can see the differences in dating. So for me there is not even a chance to build a family if I don’t change my mindset.
