The year is almost coming to an end and that means it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas! This is the time to reflect on our achievements as well as learn from the mistakes we made this 2018. But enough about our existential queries and turn our focus on the last few, yet important, parties we are going to be attending the month of December. The last month of the year represents plenty of events for the working woman.
From attending the company’s year-end party, annual company Christmas party, division party, and family gatherings, these events will surely push our limits when thinking of Christmas outfits. And while dressing up is not a mundane event for the conscious and aware, and while Christmas outfit ideas can be a little tricky, but everything is possible.
What to wear to a Christmas party?
Coming up with ideas on what to wear to a casual Christmas party is actually as easy as any other events from the past months. You prepare for your Halloween outfit the same way you prepare for a wedding dress even when you are just attending as a guest. The good thing about these Christmas party outfits is the fact that you are not pretending to be someone else, moreover, you are just attending as yourself but one notch higher. Here are the top standout Christmas outfit ideas for holiday parties:
Idea 1 – Christmas costumes
They may seem a bit tacky if you aren’t wearing them, but there’s genuineness with Christmas costumes. It’s the same as saying I enjoy Christmas and I want to give the people I know a reason to celebrate it with me the way I know how. Most Christmas costume ideas go from Santa Claus and Rudolph to your kids as reindeers with red glitters. Of course, the eldest son should be Rudolph. You can also come as a Christmas present or as simple as actual presents in shiny shirts. The possibilities of coming up with Christmas T shirts are actually endless. You just need to plan how to execute it properly.
Idea 2 – Womens Christmas sweaters
Normal clothes or Christmas clothes, sweaters will always be a good idea! The December breeze is something that is almost the same in every country even if you live outside winter. This month just gives you the chilly feel that makes sweaters the best option when going out and going to parties. I always admired those comical Christmas sweaters that are in your face. Tell them you love the Christmas holiday by purchasing sweaters with kids who look like a reindeer or Santa Claus. After all, you only get to wear them this December and no other months!
Idea 3 – Shiny Womens Christmas tops
When things go to pandemonium, wear something shiny and don’t think of anything else anymore! I see Christmas time as the time to enjoy the glitter and all its glory. Think of it this way, the shinier you are the greater you look! Let me tell you this secret, no one looks bad when they put a little sparkle in their sartorial choices. There are also Christmas themed dresses out there that has sequins, intricate beadwork, and glitters! However, please note that you really have to choose the right design to fit your personality and ensure you won’t be caught dead wearing the same outfit. And don’t forget to bring the coat or something that provides enough warmth if you choose to wear dress – it should be cold outside.
More Christmas party ideas
Aside from the clothes you will wear, one thing you need to consider is the theme of each Christmas party. These *Christmas party ideas vary from strict red and green to winter wonderland to the Great Gatsby. Before coming up with cool Christmas print dress or Christmas skirts, you need to abide by the event’s theme. Is it a black tie event or can you come in your playful self? You need to check the invitation given and follow them whatever happens. Standing out is great, but not for the wrong reasons.
You can finally shop for the clothes once you are aware of the theme. Since Christmas time equates to shopping till you drop on your knees, it won’t really be hard to find the perfect Christmas themed dresses for you! Remember, aside from office Christmas parties, you also need to look your best during Christmas Eve with your family and New Year’s Eve. There is seriously a lot of parties during the month of December!
Segue: Christmas socks exchange
I don’t know with you, but I always adored Christmas time because of all the presents I will be giving and receiving. It’s truly the most wonderful time of the year and the spirit of giving is at its peak. One of which is Christmas socks. Those ornamented socks you hang on the wall and hope someone will give you something, either big or small. Some stocking stuffer ideas I have in mind is a Tiffany box or a Pandora charm bracelet. Well, I can also go for simple things like a handmade scarf if it fits!
