Holiday parties have officially entered the chat, which means there’s likely one question on your mind: What do I wear? While this is often a time to go all out, from the glitz and glam to the bright and bold, this season we’re keeping things simple with uncomplicated outfit ideas that can translate to any event. Instead, make a statement with easy-to-wear trends, elevated details like luxe fabrics and striking silhouettes, and the most uncomplicated element of all: Foundational pieces from Spanx. This is your sign to officially RSVP yes.
Red may be a defining holiday hue, but it also just so happens to be the color of the fall and winter season. Tap into the trend with a head-to-toe monochromatic look that’s just as elegant as it is bold. Opting for pieces that shine in their simplicity — the streamlined fit of the sheath dress, the tailored lines of the coat — will help temper the effect of the color, making it a sophisticated choice for more formal gatherings.

In a Cinch
After seasons of all slouchy everything, the triumphant return of the more structured hourglass silhouette feels like a breath of fresh air. A cinched-waist blazer may be the type of piece you’d associate with a more conservative or corporate setting, but you’d be surprised by how well it can translate to after hours, too. Faux leather trousers add a touch of luxe, and bold silver accessories take it from office to office party. Feeling risqué? Ditch the shirt — just be prepared to rely on your belt to hold it together.
You know the stretchy-pants outfit you always want to change into immediately following a big holiday meal? Consider this the sleek, fashion-forward take on said outfit. With the easy pull-on design of the wireless bralette and ponte pants as your base, simply add a sheer top layer — in this case a tunic — and chunky jewelry for a look that’s interesting, cool, and deceptively comfy. Wear this for any holiday occasion that involves an indulgent meal, like a family gathering or winter date night — no outfit change required.
