Jacqueline Wells

The holidays are upon us, and while there’s a definite chill in the air, your social calendar is probably heating up. Between cocktail parties and holiday brunches, ’tis the season for festive gatherings. But what to wear to these social soirées?

From accessories to undergarments, we’ve got you covered for every occasion.

Holiday Party Looks

Holiday get-together with friends

Heading to a casual party at your best friend’s pad? Stay comfortable in a classic, go-to ensemble. Skinny black pants and a plunging neckline are simultaneously laid-back and sexy—just in case you find yourself with a handsome stranger under the mistletoe. Swapping your flats for a pair of heeled pumps will bring your outfit from everyday to holiday, while the right undergarments will give your sleek look the right foundation. Hanky Panky’s signature lace thong will save you from any unwanted lines or bulges, while a plunging push-up bra from Le Mystere is perfect for a deep V.

Cocktail party with co-workers

Cocktail attire can mean many things, but the classic black dress always works. Whether you choose a flirty A-line or a sleek sheath, dress up this classic with your favorite baubles to add some holiday sparkle. Worried about chilly legs? Tall boots are on trend and in season, and they make a fun and unexpected alternative to more traditional pumps. A lacy bralette from Cosabella will have you feeling confident and sexy, while lace cheeky panties by SPANX will keep things smooth and seamless.

Brunch with the family

Celebrating the holidays with extended family, in-laws and long-lost relatives? Stay warm and comfortable in Wolford’s velvet sensation tights and a cozy sweater. Pair with your favorite skirt for festive fun, and boost your confidence with a romantic embroidered bra by Natori.

The holidays are the perfect time to catch up with family and friends, and having a few go-to outfits—from the right undergarments to the perfect accessories—for any occasion will allow you to accept any impromptu invitations. Cheers!
