Now that Thanksgiving and Black Friday have come and gone, it's time to appreciate the spirit of the season. December is in full swing, which means holiday parties are going to be in abundance for the next few weekends. Creating fashionable-yet-appropriate outfits for all of your upcoming events can be quite a feat, especially in the midst of finals, gift shopping, and social gatherings.
Why not ring in the season with these Tinseltown-approved looks below? As always, they are all under $100, but you likely already have several items in your closet that would work with many of the pieces below.
Work Festivities Outfit - $93.58
Don't forget: a work/internship-sponsored party is still considered work. Holiday parties are notorious for poor decision-making in front of your superiors and co-workers, so keep that in mind when choosing an outfit and don't wear anything that could be embarrassing. (Read: too short, too scandalous, or too shiny.)
You can look absolutely stunning in a simple lace dress, like the one shown above. The three-quarter-length sleeves and opaque tights would work for even the most conservative setting. Besides, it is winter, so being covered-up should be a priority anyway! Pair it with cream accessories and gorgeous pump sandals.
Formal Affair Outfit - $98.11
You don't have to splurge on spendy gowns to look like a million bucks. If a fancy soiree is on your party circuit this season, seek out a gorgeous satin frock like the one from H&M shown above (we still can't believe it's only $19.95!).
Go all out with accessories that pop against the shiny black material. A bold cuff, rocker earrings, and a color-blocked clutch are impeccable touches.
Fancy Family Celebration Outfit - $98.14
If your family's formal holiday celebration is always one for the books, don't let your outfit disappoint. We can't get over how darling the dress shown above is: dark-hued sequins with a punch of gold and sleeves to keep you covered up. Pair it with tights and your sassiest pumps.
Emerald is a stand-out tone against gold, so search for some bold earrings. Also, don't forget to trick-out your tips with a sparkly crimson nail polish!
