Can you believe that Christmas and New Years are just around the corner?! Man, has this year flown by. A couple sleeps and winks later and 2022 has come to its close. It’s time to celebrate! In just a few short weeks, this chapter of our lives will be over and a new one will commence, let’s go out with a bang and lookin’ cute as hell doing it!
Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties give us the perfect opportunity to finish out the year looking and feeling good! With everything that has happened in the last two years, we’re sure that a lot of us have spent more days than we can count in sweats and t-shirts, it’s time for some glam. Here are 6 Jays’ top looks and fashion pieces for your Christmas and NYE look.
LOOK #1 - THE CLASSIC AND ELEGANT SATIN DRESS
A classy and flowy satin dress screams elegance and festiveness. If you’ve ever worn a satin dress, you know that you’re in for a comfortable night! Holiday parties, as fun as they are, can be lengthy. This option will have you looking classy and beautiful while being wrapped in comfy fabric. Pair it with your favorite strappy heel (short thick heels look great with this look for additional glamorous comfort), add a necklace and some dangly earrings and you’ve got yourself a look, babe! The Myah Dress from our lovely Oh So Lush Boutique is our pick for this look. It’s the perfect length and you can never go wrong with black! Who said red and green are the only Christmas colors? If you do love a pop of Christmas color with you classic look, check out these adorable jingle bell earrings we found on Amazon…so cute!
LOOK #2 - A MIDI LENGTH SKIRT AND A KNIT SWEATER
Ok so let’s say you want a classy look, but it’s chilly out! So many fashionistas know that covering a great outfit with a coat is a choice we are faced with too many times. So let’s rectify that, yeah? One of our favorite fashion trends is pairing a midi length dress or skirt with a knit sweater! It doesn’t sound like it works, but the end results are not only cute beyond belief, you also aren’t at the mercy of the weather. You can serve looks and stay warm all night long. The Trendy Turtleneck Sweater from Oh So Lush Boutique and the Lenny Skirt from HerKind Apparel are our picks for this great look. The Lenny Skirt adds a great pop of print with its leopard like pattern and the deep red of the turtleneck sweater gives us the best holiday vibes. Again, you can pair this with a strappy heel, a heel bootie, or heck, even some sneaks! You can really make this look your own, babe. The possibilities are yours to explore!
LOOK #3 - THE OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY LOOK
This option is a more casual take on a party look, but “phew phew!” It's a cutie. We’ve paired a strappy satin like tank top with a skinny distressed hem jean. Now this look isn’t strictly a party look, it’s just a look we love to see and we’re making it a must as a party outfit. It's a bit more concealed and casual due to its professional type feel, but not all party looks have flashing lights. Some party looks give off a soft, beautiful and edgy glow. Our picks for this look are the Sabrina Top in Sage from HerKind Apparel and Style 13 Kancan Jeans from So Chic Boutique. We love the simplicity of these picks. A dainty satin like tank to offset the edgy distressed black denim. Throw on a deep red blazer or knit cardi, with (you guessed it) a strappy or pointed heel and you’ve got your party look!
LOOK #4 - HEY…HOW ABOUT A SHORT DRESS?
Just because it’s a little chilly outside doesn’t mean we can’t spring for a short dress look for our Christmas party. Just pick a festive short dress! Form fitting dresses, sparkly dresses, flowy dresses (our favorite), are all a great pick for a fun and flirty Christmas party look. For this look, we went with a long time favorite - a short length, long sleeve flowy chiffon dress. Our pick for our last party look is the Sunday Best Dress from the So Chic Boutique. Don’t be filled by the name, this dress will slay on any day of the week. So much so we picked it as one of our favorites to end the year on. This dress doesn’t need more than your favorite sneaks or heels and a great pair of earrings to really make it shine.
The holidays are a beautiful and bright time. It’s a time to reflect on the past year, spend time with family and friends and a great excuse to buy two or three really cute outfits that you may have missed out on earlier in the year. Christmas is vibrant and exciting and we hear the jingle bells getting closer! Merry Christmas and may your party look merry and envied. Happy Holidays, 6 Jays babes!
