Five Holiday Outfits to Get You Through Different Events
The holidays are here, and the surrounding events are endless! Whether you have dinner with your significant other’s parents, or you have an office party at your new job, I compiled five festive outfits to make dressing that much simpler.
This season is stressful enough. Let me help you look your best without a second thought!
Trendy Holiday Outfits for This Holiday Season
Work parties can certainly be tricky, because you need to balance professionalism with personality.
I always like to elevate work basics with luxe textures and prints. For example, try a velvet blazer instead of your classic black, or change your plain work pants for something metallic as I’ve done in this photo.
Pro tip: Add some holiday shimmer like sparkly drop earrings or a diamond tennis bracelet.
The goal here is to remain company appropriate while letting your personality shine!
Cocktail hour is one of my favorite occasions for fashion. With the steady stream of events coming up, now is the perfect time to play around with cuts and textures.
Since I’m an edgier gal myself, I will always advocate for leather (or vegan leather). A trouser is definitely the vibe in 2022, and it balances out a cropped, satin top perfectly.
If you want added warmth, I recommend adding a long blazer or a tailored coat; It will tie the outfit together perfectly and turn your entrance to the event into your runway.
Dinner with the In-Laws
Meals with the in-laws can be difficult fashion-wise, but don’t worry, I have you covered!
The key to an outfit fit for family is to err on the side of modesty(ish). I like to do this with a long sleeve blouse and simple denim, paired with a fitted ankle boot.
Another great option is a simple pair of wide-leg trousers with a warm sweater.
Pro tip: When wearing two loose items – like bigger trousers and a chunky sweater – be sure to tuck the top into the bottom. The illusion of an hourglass will always look polished, and will definitely impress the family!
Shopping at Holiday Markets
One of my favorite shopping days of the year is Black Friday. I don’t know about you, but I always like to dress in all black to embrace the theme.
This year I am going for something layered, like a big sweatshirt and black leggings. For a hint of trendiness, add some crew socks over the leggings to break up the all black.
You can even add a leather or cropped vest for extra warmth and style – perfect for hitting local markets around the Northwest!
New Year’s Eve
Finally, we have the perfect New Year’s outfit. I absolutely love anything sparkly, so I pulled out my sparkly heels to elevate a more simplistic, black dress.
With more flamboyant holidays like New Years, it’s OK to have fun with accessories or dresses.
I don’t recommend going all out for both. One statement piece is good.
Pro tip: Consider a little black dress with an exciting accessory like I shared. It’s elegant yet fun, the perfect combo for the holidays!
I hope these outfits inspire your holiday dressing! Festive outfits are some of my all-time favorites to create. I find them to be so inspiring and easy to style in a plethora of ways.

Hi, I’m Lauren Trivison! After graduating from Gonzaga in 2020, I moved back to Olympia to start my own fashion page on Instagram. I also worked at my local Nordstrom where I learned to dress all sorts of women. While the west side was fun, I dearly missed Spokane and I recently moved back to reacquaint myself with the city. Now I share daily outfit and lifestyle posts with my girls online!
