Perfect outfits for Christmas and New Year's Eve!
The holidays are the perfect time to pull out your best outfits and look your best. From a fancy Christmas dinner to a New Year's Eve party at a friend's house, these are the best outfits to steal the show! Read on quickly.
Black tie or a theme party?
Especially at an end of year party at work, the question is: how fancy will others be dressing? A simple black suit, jumpsuit or little black dress are often a good way to blend in with the other partygoers without too much thought of effort. But with Christmas, you can also be invited to themed parties. Popular is the ‘ugly Christmas sweaters’ theme, but there are many more themes to be used around Christmas! Score points with your outfit and wear an iconic Santa suit (in Dutch: kerstmanpak). That way you can be sure you will be the center of attention. Or go dressed as an elf, reindeer or snowman if you want to get in on the dress code.
From glitter, sequins and dark colors to popping red dresses with feathers or snowballs: Christmas dresses (in Dutch: kerstjurkjes) come in all shapes and styles. Especially if you are going to a party with bright spotlights, you will find shining like a disco ball in a sparkling dress. Not only you, but also the people around you will immediately get into the party mood when you walk by! Dare to stand out on New Year's Eve and let your outfit sparkle in the lights of the fireworks!
The little black dress or a red dress?
The famous black dress is actually always good at parties, especially at Christmas and New Year's Eve. You are not easily 'underdressed' or 'overdressed' in it, which makes it a safe but stylish choice! Do you still want to stand out a bit more and look extra festive? Then opt for a striking red dress! You can dress this up with shiny accessories to go all in with the Christmas theme, or keep it simple for a more casual chic look. Grab a pair of stylish shoes from your closet and you'll be ready for all your festivities.
Warm and chic in velvet
Velvet is becoming more popular every year when it comes to party wear. Velvet not only looks sexy, soft and chic, but it also keeps you nice and warm. Which is nice when you walk out on New Year's Eve and don't want to hide your outfit under a thick coat. Velvet is especially common during the holidays in colors like black, (burgundy) red, green and purple: colors that suit Christmas and New Year's Eve perfectly! What's nice about a velvet outfit is that you can still wear it to any party during the rest of the year! Think of a birthday party or a fancy dinner.
Hopefully you have enough inspiration to find an appropriate outfit. Above all, don't forget to enjoy the party!
