Holiday party season is officially upon us, friends, and we’re not complaining. Who doesn’t love countless replays of Mariah Carey’s greatest Christmas hits? While holiday season is undoubtedly the best time of year, it’s also the busiest. During this period, you’ve got the following: Christmas! Hanukkah! Kwanzaa! Shopping for gifts! Prepping elaborate meals! And then you’ve got office parties, family gatherings, and get-togethers with friends you rarely see anymore due to your schedules. Plus, don’t forget about New Year’s Eve, when you experience the inevitable existential peril that accompanies not following through on resolutions set approximately one year ago.
In anticipation of all these social gatherings, we’ve compiled the ultimate shopping guide for holiday party outfits. We’re talking timeless classics that can be re-worn again and again, to literally any social event on your calendar this season—because let’s be real, the guest lists for all those holiday events don’t all overlap, so you really just need one lewk for the season. Shop these chic (and comfortable enough to overeat in) outfits for your upcoming holiday festivities.
