Every year the holidays come around and we’re scrambling in our closets or online wondering what to wear! I get you, I hear you, I’ve been there. We all have to go to so many events, see family and all sorts of other activities we have to dress for. Here are some party ensemble ideas so that choosing that perfect holiday outfit is pain-free.
What to wear for Christmas
Is it just me or is Christmas one of the best holidays to dress for? I think it may be a close second to New Year’s Eve but it is such fun. I love the laughs and joy of Christmas morning while donning a hilarious ugly Christmas sweater. The luxe glam of Christmas night is when I like to load on the velvet and sparkles.
Casual Christmas Outfit
They never get old and I think ugly Christmas sweaters get funnier every single year. I like to pair mine with cozy slippers or boots and cute faux-leather leggings. I always try to carve a few minutes out of the morning for skincare because nothing is more drying than the holidays.
Formal Christmas Outfit
I love a statement red lip for almost any occasion but especially for Christmas and it is best paired with glowy skin. Sweeping highlighter across your cheekbones, neck, and chest is a great way to glow no matter the lighting. I like to pair a silky satin dress with velvet to keep things glam and festive and then top it all off with a bold shoe.

What to wear for Hanukkah
Hanukkah starts the evening of December 22 and ends the evening of December 30. Adding a little blue or white to your looks is an easy way to infuse some festivity into your outfit without getting cheesy. Unless of course, you’re looking for cheesy and in that case, I included some ugly Hanukkah sweaters too!
Casual Hanukkah Celebrations
As much as I love a funny sweater on Christmas, designers have finally started to come out with ugly Hanukkah sweaters! Pair one of these with a cute denim pant and some pearl combat boots and you are good to go!
Formal Hanukkah Celebrations
The festival of lights is such a fun way to incorporate a little glitter or some shimmer or frankly a lot of glitter. I love incorporating the colors of the holiday and topping it off with metallic accessories.

3…2…1…Happy New Year!
Phew, we made it through all the holidays and now it’s New Year’s Eve! Some years I love having a cozy movie night in with my family and some years I love going all out with a glam party. Either way, don’t forget your red undies…gotta ward off the evil spirits in the new year! I also love dressing in whatever color is the lucky color for the next year. In 2020 it’s going to be all about greens and blues for luck and you should avoid browns and yellows.
New Year’s eve night in
Grab the popcorn and cozy slippers! There is no better way to watch everyone freezing in NYC waiting for midnight than in your jammies.
New Years Party (or fancy night in! Don’t let me tell you how to celebrate!)
Glam, as you all know, is my favorite way to celebrate a holiday. Pick a glam dress in a fun color, add some fun accessories!
