Christmas parties are fun occasions where everyone gets together to celebrate the season. They are also great opportunities to meet new people and get to know them better.
And they are an even better opportunity to arrive in an outfit fit for a vintage queen like yourself!
However, dressing up for these events can be challenging. There are so many options out there, from formal dresses (Also check out Amazing Vintage Formal Dresses To Enhance Your Wardrobe) to casual ones. How do you choose the perfect outfit?
Well, today we have the 10 most stylish outfits for your Christmas party, vintage, and retro!
Winter parties are always fun. They come with cozy clothes, hot drinks, and warm food. But what do you do if you don’t want to spend money on expensive dresses, coats, and shoes?
Well, there is still plenty you can do. Here are some ideas for party outfits that will make you stand out.
An outfit planned around a leather jacket can never go wrong, it’s a staple piece that has survived decades of styles and has still managed to remain a classic item. For men and women.
Leather jackets are often associated with ruggedness, toughness, and durability. They’re comfortable, easy to care for and look good no matter what you wear underneath.
But did you know there are some really stylish options out there?
Leather jackets have stood the test of time, and they are here to stay for as long as we need them to!
You can’t go wrong with a timeless black dress, every fashion icon has adorned the little black dress or a staple fitted black dress in their wardrobes and looks.
It works because of its simplicity. You can’t go wrong with black, and you can’t go wrong with minimalism when it comes to dresses.
Everyone wants their Diana’s revenge dress moment, right? Well, now is your chance!
A black dress really does make history and the moments are sure to shine on forever, especially if you wear a little black dress to your next Christmas party.
Blazers or overcoats can make an outfit that’s about to break. A blazer is a versatile jacket that works well during both work and play.
It’s a smart choice because it provides protection against the elements while still allowing enough room to move around comfortably.
A blazer is easy to throw on over a button-down shirt and jeans, and it looks good no matter what the occasion. For those who are looking for something different, there are plenty of options for adding some personality to a classic look.
Also, sometimes the jacket does all the work when it comes to standing out in a crowd, and the older the jacket, the better.
Vintage jackets and coats age like fine wine and if you can get your hands on one that works for you, you’ll never be left feeling lost with your outfit choices, especially at Christmas.
Cocktail dresses (Check out Vintage Cocktail Dresses) are sweet additions to any wardrobe, and it’s comforting to know you always have something suitable for a party or celebration like Christmas.
So, why not try an aged cocktail dress that speaks for you at your next Christmas party? There’s a reason why most runway collections feature a few cocktail-style dresses or staple dresses.
They’re a timeless shape that can be styled for any season, year in, year out.
Spaghetti strap dresses are always a staple when it comes to parties, and you can’t go wrong with something simple, but breathtakingly elegant to make a statement at your next Christmas party event. Especially if it’s red too!
We think that what makes these styles of dresses work so well is how they can work around any accessories and body type. It doesn’t matter who you are, we know that you can rock a strappy fitted vintage number any day!
Ruffled blouses and dresses are an outfit that you just can’t go wrong with for the sake of being theatrical! Time and time again, women (and men!) over the years (especially in drag clubs in the 80s) have made the ruffle, a masterpiece.
For Christmas, you want something that is going to scream dramatic, but in a sophisticated way, right?
Well, this little number could be your ticket to freedom. It’s fun, exciting, and simple at the same time, which can be hard to pull off altogether in one look, but here you are, thinking about wearing something truly unique to your next party.
Sometimes, it’s go all or go home. And ruffles are never a terrible choice.
The classic red dress is a must at a Christmas party, at least one or two people will be wearing a red dress to these types of parties, so why not try to outshine them with this spectacular number?
There really isn’t much to say about red dresses, because they do the speaking for you!
Sometimes, you just want something simple, but without it having to always be a dress.
This sequin top idea could be just what you need to bring some excitement into your outfit, but without going too over the top, if you’re someone who appreciates the more subtle things in life.
Sequins are perfect for Christmas, and to stay warm, you may opt for a top and jeans or smart trousers instead of a dress.
So, a sequin high-neck top will do just the thing to keep you comfortable, physically, and for fitting into the party setting well.
A sweetheart neckline or a princess neckline, specifically, can be such a delicate, yet spectacular way to enhance a dress around the holidays.
This way, you can keep your outfit simple enough that you don’t feel like you’re standing out too much while creating a look that makes you feel elegant and beautiful.
Plus, dresses like this, can be used for multiple occasions, so don’t just get a dress like this out for the holiday seasons, why not use it all year round for your most special party celebrations?
When winter comes, the long sleeves come out, and some dresses can feel a bit dull for a Christmas party when long sleeves are involved.
So, why not try something that incorporates those long sleeves to keep you warm and toasty, while helping you to stand out amongst the crowd?
This dress utilizes a beautiful patterned print, with a fabric that is delicate to the touch. Patterns can bring out a garment more when bloc colors alone aren’t doing enough for the style of the dress.
So, this is why prints are used sometimes by designers. Sometimes, the print is the moneymaker.
We also love how simple but dramatic this print is on this particular style of dress because it has altered a simplistic black mesh dress, into a whole other look, simply by the print alone.
What Is Suitable For A Christmas Or Cocktail Party?
A formal cocktail party is usually held in a large room where guests sit around a table and enjoy food and drinks. Most people attend such events because they know someone else who attends; hence, the term “cocktail party.”
The invitation itself is usually sent via email or snail mail, and it includes information about what to bring, how many people are attending, and whether there will be a hostess present.
A menu is included, along with directions to the event location.
There are different types of cocktails parties, including dinner parties, afternoon tea parties, and evening receptions.
Dinner parties tend to be larger affairs, while afternoon tea parties are smaller gatherings (see also ‘15 Amazing Vintage Tea Party Dresses To Enhance Your Wardrobe‘). Evening receptions are generally held during the day and are often used as a prelude to a wedding reception.
Cocktail and Christmas parties are typically hosted by friends and family members, although some companies hold them for employees. Sometimes, businesses organize such parties as part of their employee benefits package.
Christmas is around the corner, so it’s time to start planning your holiday events. You’ve got plenty of work to do, whether it’s organizing your calendar, making sure your guests know where to go/what to wear, or just getting ready yourself.
But don’t worry too much about what to wear; there are some great ideas on how to make the most of every outfit.
We hope that these 10 outfit ideas for your next Christmas party can help you find something truly unique to wear and wow your family and friends!
