Pretty Instagram-inspired: Christmas Party Outfit Ideas

Plan your Christmas #ootd by taking style cues from social media this jolly season.

Christmas is just around the corner, but have you figured out what to wear yet? If you haven’t, we’re here to grant your (wardrobe) wishes with six Christmas party outfit ideas, all inspired by some of our favourite fashionistas on Instagram. This time around, we’re skipping the typical cocktail dresses and opting for pieces that you might already have in your closet instead. Plus, we’ve also included a few separates that you can gift yourself this holiday!


Option #1: Feminine Mystique

If you’re a girlie girl or feel like showcasing your inner femininity this year, pair up these numbers: cut-out off-shoulder tops, satin material and ruffles, which work well together to elevate your overall holiday look!

@tlnique looks oh-so demure by pairing her floral top with a pleated midi skirt. The burnt red colour is also a great alternative to  the usual bright red if you still want to stick to the festive colours.

You can also take a cue from @lusttforlife by going for the party on the ‘top’ and casual on the bottoms. This outfit combo is for you ladies who love staying comfy but still want to look party-ready!


Option #2: Midi Game Strong

Working gals, say no more! Take it to the next level with this work-meets-party ensemble, as demonstrated by @miss_gunner, who’s got layering done right. Take similar cues by pairing your structured midi skirts over a maxi dress or a longer skirt that matches your top for an overall cohesive look.

If the layering trend sounds intimidating to you, the flared midi skirt makes a good second option too! Just like the queen of style, @blondaholik, pick one in trending metallic to update your festive outfit.

Option #3: Who wears the pants?

Not into the flirty vibes of floral tops and midi skirts? Don’t fret! Simply opt for wide-legged trousers for that added ‘flare’ during the Christmas season. Just like @yoyokulala, pair yours with a statement top and you’ll be out the door – stat.

Denim can be dressed up or down, but these flared denim trousers definitely have a dressier feel to them, making it party-perfect! Steal @dreachong‘s look by going for a pair of strappy pointed heels and an outerwear that will make heads turn.
