Style guide: holiday parties 2013

By Tate Watson, Staff Writer

When the weather gets colder and the nights get longer, everyone starts to get ready for the holiday season. Along with baking cookies and decorating a tree, parties seem to be a choice event this time of year. If your social calendar is full and you’re not sure what the appropriate outfit is for each event, here’s three popular holiday parties and what to wear to each one.


Family Get Together

The holiday season is a time where families come together to exchange gifts, laughs, and memories. Impress even your most critical aunt or uncle by dressing in a classy and conservative lace dress with tights. Adding a pop of red with a bright shoes or even a Santa hat will make it appropriate for the holidays.



Ugly Holiday Sweater Party

Just because the party invite calls for an ugly sweater doesn’t mean the rest of your outfit has to be drab! Go all out this year by pairing your choice of sweater with sweater leggings! They’re super comfortable and will keep your legs warm. If wearing sweater leggings with a… sweater seems too over the top for you, pairing your sweater with black leggings or a festive red skirt will let the ugliness of your holiday sweater shine through and be the star of the ensemble.



New Year’s Eve Party

If you’re ringing in the new year at a huge party with all your friends or spending the holiday hanging out with your family finishing off the last of the Christmas cookies, bring the celebration with a sparkling outfit. A gold glittery dress will help you shine as the countdown begins for 2014. Pair it with black tights and heels to stay warm and be a neutral match to such a loud statement dress. Keep your hair and face natural but be sure to grab a bright lipstick- it’ll be sure to get you a kiss at midnight!
