1. Blouse + Corduroys or Jeans
First up, opt for one of my go-to formulas for a dressy holiday party outfit – a blouse with pants. You can totally pair the blouse with jeans, but if you want to put a twist on the outfit, wear corduroys instead! Corduroys add texture and dimension.

This blouse is such a great piece for dressy holiday party outfits. The green is perfect for the holidays, and the polka dots make it more visually interesting. And, it’s only $24.48! Find it HERE. I’m wearing size S.

These corduroys are great for mixing up outfits, providing a richer texture than jeans that is perfect for holiday style. This pair is really soft, stretchy, and comfortable! Plus, I love how corduroy is thicker and keeps you warmer. They are just $16.99 right now and come in 5 colors, HERE! I’m wearing size 6.

Wear this outfit for a holiday work party or wear it to dinner with friends!

2. Dress
A dress is always a great option for a dressy holiday party outfit! If you need something really fancy, go for one with sequins! Kohl’s has several fun sequin dresses right now, which I’ll include in a widget at the bottom of this post.

This dress is classic and classy! I appreciate that it’s knee-length, as lately it can be hard to find dresses that hit that sweet spot of not-too-short and not-too-long. On top of that, the dress is stretchyfully lined, and has a belted waist to give you some shape. I also like that it has elastic at the neckline and cuffs, which makes it more comfortable. (Sometimes sequined clothes can be stiff and rough around those areas!) And, it’s under $35! Find it HERE. I’m wearing size S.

If you’re worried about the cold and want to cover your legs, pair this with black fleece-lined tights like THESE or THESE (which are complete GAME-CHANGERS, btw!) and black boots, like THESE or THESE.

Wear this out to watch a show, to enjoy a concert, or for a fancy holiday work party. The options are endless!

Another option I really like is THIS sleeveless sequin dress. It has a flattering v-neckline with an empire waistband to provide shape, and it has pockets! It comes in both black and gold, HERE.

3. Sequin Top + Jeans 
Last, dress up your jeans with a sequin top for a great dressy holiday party outfit! Sequins dress up everything, and this top is a really fun piece to have in your wardrobe in case you ever need to add some shine! It’s fully lined, and it’s stretchy, making it more comfortable to wear. The v-neck, peplum, and belted waist all add details that dress up the top even more, and on a practical note, the v-neck has a clasp to keep it secure. This top is under $27, and it comes in this ivory color, a maroon floral print, and a dark teal print with leaves. See them all HERE. Plus sizes HERE. I’m wearing size S.

I paired it with the LC Lauren Conrad flare jeans, which I have shown you many times already. I LOVE THEM! The wash is a fantastic blue that makes outfits pop, and it is really easy to dress up and down. (I’ve paired these with slip-on sneakers and a sweatshirt, too!) Plus, they are comfortable! They are lightweight with a good amount of stretch and are easy to move around in but feel supportive at the same time. And, they’re ONLY $21!!! SO, SO GOOD!!! Find them HERE. I’m wearing size 6.
