Outfit ideas for Christmas dinner parties
Christmas gives you this rare chance to depart from your typical taste and embrace loud colors and playful embellishments. That’s the main assumption behind our selection of party looks for your Christmas Day dinner party!
If you are on the glam end of the scale, you can embrace a festive ensemble in sequins or metallics because the joyful season calls for sparkles and champagne, glitter and LOTS of shine! 🥂
Also, I presume you are already sick and tired of sitting at home wearing sweats and tees and you already feel the irresistible desire to dress up in the most maximal way possible for the holiday season. 😉 Christmas comes only once a year, and the statement pieces you invested in will serve you well for many special occasions to come.
Besides, golds, metallics, crystals, and sequins are the big trend this season. The persisting Covid-19 crisis motivated the fashion designers to bring back the optimistic anticipation by going really big on sparkles for this fall and winter.
I don’t know about you, but I feel incredibly joyful when dressed up in sequins or gold because nothing tops their glamour!
For instance, I’ve had this Bradley Mischka’s one-shoulder sequin gown for years, and I always have the option to pick it when an occasion as special as Christmas calls for a dressy piece.
Here, we’ve selected a few looks for inspiration ranging from a mini party dress in ultra-purple from Revolve whose tag is still hanging, an orange striped sequin dress by Armani Exchange, a tulle skirt dress with sequin bodice and a metallic pantsuit by Guy Laroche.
Since I was looking for shine, I decided to filter my sequin pieces by searching the respective hashtag in my digital closet on La Koketa app. That’s how I discovered this sequin party dress embellished with lace and shoulder ruffles.
Christmas is one of those events where shimmer is best served up with a good high heel. 👠 In the case of elaborate dresses like these with sequins, you should go for minimal shoes to make the dress the main event. Your best bet is the classic black pump or the strappy heeled sandal, which will add a dash of sass and some edge to your look.
My second glittery choice fell on this beautiful tulle skirt dress in nude, which is totally dazzling and the ultimate Christmas dinner party look. So here, I felt the need to indulge my creative urges and combine the most perfect outfit by mixing and matching it with a pair of heeled sandals in nude and a floral clutch.
The other footwear option for sparkly dresses that I find alluring and exquisite is matching the color of the accessories to your frock, which will make you shine from head to shoe at the Christmas dinner party. ✨
Alternately, you can always rent a glamourous glittery dress if you are bored with your old pieces. The rental options are abundant, and it won’t hang in your closet after the holidays are over.
Borrowing is yet another viable option to consider when prepping up your dazzling Christmas party look. For instance, I borrowed this orange sequin mini dress from my friend and colleague Tanya who’s already had enough of its vivid glam at various special occasions.
The choice of accessories here is again classic and subtle to make the dress stand out. I paired the dress with plum-colored suede pumps with pointed toe and chunky heels and a suede cross body vanity box in navy blue.
Finally, I felt adventurous and dared to dig deep into my closet and discovered this metallic pantsuit, which has had its fair deal of social appearances back in the days. As I always say, trends come and go, but statement pieces are here to stay for they always make a wise investment. Moreover, you can easily digitize your old items by searching La Koketa app catalog with key words, i.e. “silver blazer”.
To complete the outfit, pair the pantsuit with accent accessories like the pink suede almond-toe stilettoes and a leather saddle bag for a sultry look.
Ho ho ho, that’s all, dear La Koketa friends! ❤
We wish you the warmest, happiest and merriest Christmas and may you sparkle brightly this holiday season! ✨🎄
