Holiday parties are the major social events and it is important to dress accordingly to get an impression. Following are the guidelines to dress up for the holiday parties:
Men can attend by dressing fairly casually for a holiday party. It is advised not to wear jeans or T shirts for holiday party. Khaki slacks paired with a short-sleeve button-down shirt would be an appropriate casual holiday outfit. As the most of holiday parties are informal parties there is no need to wear a suit or dinner jacket. Clothing for a holiday party can be any of these seasonal color combinations like tan paired with emerald green, red or dark blue, black and gold, brown and dark red or brown and teal.
It is better for the parents to dress the children in more comfortable dresses for holiday parties. Dress girls in warm, solid color tights and a knee length dress with long sleeves. Boys will be comfortable in dark colored cotton or corduroy slacks and a long sleeved sweater or button down shirt. Colors for boys includes gray, brown, blue or green and for girls, cream, red, yellow or purple for holiday parties.
A holiday dress for women depends on the temperature and the location. A classic little black dress is always appropriate for holiday parties for women as is a knee length cocktail dress. Gold, silver, black, dark red, royal purple and cobalt are the colors preferred for holiday party clothing. Mix and match gold and silver accessories, since both are holiday colors. A pair of ankle booties or closed toe platform pumps are better suited for holiday parties. An ideal holiday outfit would include a 3/4 sleeve black dress combined with thin silver and gold chains, cobalt blue snakeskin pumps, a cobalt blue sash or belt and some sparkly diamond stud earrings.
Whatever the gender and age group might be, the basic things which are to be considered while selecting apparel for holiday parties are comfort, light weight and suitability to weather.
