Marlee's | Holiday Attire

‘Tis the season of celebrating, and with that celebrating comes holiday parties! The trick to pulling off a perfectly festive outfit for every event comes down to balancing sexy and classic fashion based on the environment you’re in and the company you’re with. From ugly sweater parties, to work parties, all the way through the eight days of Hanukkah, we have some stunning pieces of jewelry and sound style advice for every occasion.


Friendly Traditions

For holiday parties with friends, you’ll want to go for “playfully festive” attire. Wear something fashionably casual to holiday festivities. Try black jeans with knee-high boots and layers on top. Complete the cheery look with this beaded wrap bracelet1 that doubles as a choker. When it comes to your annual friends get-together or gift exchange, try a sassy dress with colored tights,ankle booties and a simple scarf. And for ugly sweater parties, add a touch of fashion to your ridiculous ensemble with this adorable bow ring2.


Office Occasions

For holiday parties with coworkers, you’ll want to go for “formally festive” attire. Office parties can be challenging—you want to look put together in a way that highlights your personality. When choosing what to wear, consider the weather, what you’ll be doing at the party and whether or not there’s a theme. Pick something sensible, but flattering, and keep your color palette to three colors, with a single accent color. Pair seasonal blues and grays with rosy cheeks, copper eye shadow and this sleek Movado watch3. Pair blacks and browns with red lips, red nails, silver earrings and this oval pendant necklace4 that can double as a conversation starter! Make sure you polish the look with some professional touches and don’t forget to coordinate your look with your date!


Family Gatherings

For holiday parties with the family, you’ll want to go for “beautifully festive” attire. Choose outfits with saturated colors and a comfortable fit. If you celebrate Hanukkah, there is a potential for many days and nights of family events. Go to your closet, pick out pieces of clothing with the colors that look best on you, then build your outfits from there. This Star of David necklace5 can be your finishing touch. As for Christmas Eve and Christmas day, reds and greens are always safe go-tos; a stretchy dress or warm sweater in either of these hues will do nicely. Pair a red outfit with silver accessories and a green outfit with gold accessories—try this 14K diamond cross necklace6. Just remember that at the end of the day, you’re with family and they don’t care what you look like, but you should still wear your nicest coat.
