Anyone invited to holiday party after holiday party in December knows the struggle of finding something new and festive to wear to every single one. Tack that on to the fact that all you really want is to snuggle up on the couch in an oversized sweater with a hot toddy, and you've got yourself a wardrobe puzzle for the ages.

The good news? It's 100 percent possible to reconcile your busy holiday party schedule with your not-so-secret desire to be as warm and comfy as possible. Not convinced? For an outfit that looks like a million bucks, but feels like pajamas, pair a chunky and stylish sweater with a luxe pair of wide-leg satin pants—just add metallic shoes and you're ready for champagne and mistletoe. Mix and match textures, price points, and silhouettes for effortless elegance, comfortable enough to celebrate in all night long. From the office holiday party to your annual New Year's Eve bash, here's how to keep your outfits equal parts cozy and chic.
