Fabulous Festive Holiday Outfits - December's Stylish Monday

When I saw the theme for this month’s Stylish Monday post was festive outfits I immediately thought of sequins! Not that I save sequins for the festive season (I’ll wear them all year round!), but I like to throw everything at it for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. At this time of year when the weather is pretty grim and daylight is in short supply, conjuring up some fabulous festive holiday outfits lifts my spirits.

Flippy sequins and stretch fabric

I have several sequin skirts and jackets, but I’d never considered sequin trousers until recently. Someone I follow on Instagram posted a photo of some sequin trousers on their stories and I thought I’d order them to see if they suited me. Unfortunately they were a terrible fit (very saggy on the crotch) so I returned them. However, while I was waiting for them to arrive I took a gamble on these, which I found on eBay. They were brand new with tag still attached, so at less than half the retail price I’d say I got a bargain. Luckily they fit just fine thanks to the stretch fabric. The sequins flip so that one way they’re silver and the other they’re multi-coloured. My inner child is delighted with this unexpected feature!

So, what to wear with a pair of flippy sequin trousers? Well, the obvious choice would have been a black top. But I wanted to challenge myself to try something more daring (well, it is Christmas after all!). After having a rummage through my drawers I kept coming back to this bright pink top. The big bow reminds me of a Christmas present, so it seemed quite appropriate! As it’s sleeveless, I definitely needed another layer, so I grabbed this silver biker jacket. A black tuxedo jacket teamed with black strappy sandals would work well for a more classic evening look. However, I piled on the bling though with silver glittery boots and quirky holographic bag. Always be extra!

Suzanne – Ask Suzanne Bell

“Be it a festive holiday party or a girls’ night out, your evening will start off more relaxed if you have a few outfits planned out ahead of time.  Looking for some inspiration? Today, I’ve rounded up  some of my favorite holiday outfits (current and past) to hopefully inspire you to shop your closet, and sparkle and shine a little brighter this holiday season.”

Joy –   Joyous Styling   

“A little sparkle for the holidays! I subdued it with a black wool turtleneck. I added a statement necklace and rockstud heels  to complete the look. Check out my friends’ looks to see how they styled holiday dressy looks!”

Julie – Fashion Trends and Friends and Instagram FashionTandF

“This is your time to sparkle and shine!  I don’t need much reason to add on the bling, glitz and glam!  This is right up my extra loving alley!  Is there such a thing as too much or too many rhinestones, glitter and sequins?!  I think NOT!  Time to get your HOLIDAY SPARKLE on friends!”

Amy – Amy’s Creative Pursuits

“I don’t like to spend money specifically on holiday clothes that I can wear only once a year, so see how I take everyday dress clothes and add some sparkle for the Christmas season.”

Shelbee – Shelbee on the Edge

“For some festive holiday spirit, I pulled together big bold prints for what is probably my happiest outfit ever. I could not stop smiling while wearing this combination of red plaid and giant stars with double pom poms on my head.”

Andy – Pearls and Pantsuits

“Just give me all the sparkle! (and then some) Nothing says holidays like sequins and sparkle, and a top like this one can take me through New Year’s Eve in shiny style. The sequined sleeves are everything. Click through to read all about my top, and get my style tips for looking fabulous this holiday season!”

Nancy –  Nancy’s Fashion Style

“Here in the Netherlands we have a second Christmas day, and of course Christmas Eve, so that’s three outfits!I will definitely wear a tulle skirt! I think I will wear this polka dot one and my denim blue one. But it all depends on my mood! Might become something totally different!”

Nicole – High Latitude Style

“Our Christmas season started with a Christmas concert of the Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra. The dress code was festive Fairbanks Formal. It means you can wear an evening gown. So I did with a puffer vest over the gown. Independent from the aforementioned dress code, for me festive attire means evening wear. Sequins, velvet, tulle, lace, silver or gold sandals, big costume jewelry, bold jewel colors or black. However, given the cold weather of Interior Alaska, I have to be creative to stay warm. Leggings under an evening gown, for instance.”

Michele – On Instagram as Seechele_styles

“Casual chic in velvet leggings with a festive sweatshirt.”
