The holiday season is upon us, and that means getting your outfits ready for the flurry of parties that are about to come your way. You’ll need to get your outfits in order for the upcoming holidays, including Christmas day, Boxing day, and those New Year’s Eve 2017 parties. It’s a good idea to get your clothes organized ahead of time so that you’re not scrambling at the last minute—if you’re a last minute shopper, then you know how hard it can be to put together an outfit when the rack’s been cleared of all the cute clothes! If you’re at a loss and not sure what direction to take your holiday party outfits in, we’ve put together a little inspiration for you.

Christmas Party Attire

From your work Christmas party to your family’s dinner party, chances are you’ll need to get a few Christmas party outfit ideas in line for the season. A classic jewel-toned dress is a great Christmas party dress option. A dressy jumpsuit is an edgier choice, perfect if you want to mix things up a little.

If you’re attending a family event and are known to be a joker, you could always go for an ugly Christmas sweater! They’ve become increasingly popular over the years and are easy to find in stores. If you don’t come across any designs that pique your interest, you could always make one yourself—DIYs always seem to be the most popular!

Boxing day is typically reserved for shopping and hanging out with family. Whether you’re planning to hit up the mall or spend the day at your parents house eating Christmas leftovers, you’ll probably want to wear something that offers comfort (and style) since we’re sure you’ll still be reeling from that Christmas feast! InStyle suggests a cashmere jumper or even a silk bodysuit for lounging. Why not feel luxurious while snuggled up on the couch? Enjoy your Christmas holiday with some luxe PJ’s.

New Year’s Eve Outfit Ideas

Whether you’re going out or staying in, choosing a cute outfit to ring in the new year is super important- it’ll set the tone for the rest of your year! If you’re choosing to stay in or attend a cozy affair with your closest loved ones, a casual New Year’s Eve outfit is the way to go. Think relaxed jeans and a cute sweater. You could even opt for a comfortable dress like a knitted maxi- how could you go wrong with the comfort of a stretchy sweater and the look of a dress?

If you’re stepping out to ring the new year in with a night out on the town, you’ll probably want something a little more glam. Finding the perfect New Year’s Eve dress can be a challenge, but you can never do wrong with a little black dress. Too simple for your taste? Accessorize with some eye-catching jewelry like a statement necklace of some drop earrings.
