Look #1: Holiday at Home

It's time to take off the Christmas pajamas and change into an outfit that'll impress your family. Instead of reaching for your favorite LBD and tights, keep things cozy and casual by wearing this fitted sweater dress to your family's holiday gathering. Accessorize with simple, gold hoop earrings and a suede backpack that can hold all of your essentials. To finish the look, slip on these weatherproof booties. With their slip-resistant rubber sole, they'll keep you safe—while looking stylish!—no matter what the weather forecast looks like.

Look #2: Festive With Friends

Give "festive" a whole new meaning this year! For your friend's annual Christmas party, arrive in this chic sweater. It features an adorable reindeer print with a mock-neck design. In fact, you'll stay comfortable all night long with this pair of high-waisted skinny jeans, which are designed with a soft cotton-blend fabric. Add a pair of statement studs, like these gorgeous Kate Spade ones, and black block-heeled booties to complete this festive look.

Look #3: Company Christmas Party

A night of mingling with your boss and co-workers requires you to dress to the nines. For a work-appropriate look, this eye-catching outfit will grab attention in the right way. Ditch the dress and show up in something a little different—velvet trousers. We love how the ruffled waist with the satin bow adds a unique touch. Pair with velvet loafers and a crystal-embellished bag for a festive combo you can wear over and over again.
