Need some ideas on what to wear Christmas Eve? Instead of dressing down in old jeans and tennis shoes this year, make it a special occasion by dressing in a classy, elegant ensemble. Here is an in-depth guide to styling a classy outfit to wear on Christmas Eve.
The holidays are a special time. Over the past decade, it seems that more women choose to dress down in old jeans and sneakers for a holiday get together, opting for comfort over style. I for one think that’s a shame, since women in the past would always doll themselves up to make sure they presented a festive, elegant look. The great thing about today’s fashion, is that you can achieve that classic sense of style while still being comfortable.
If you decide to wear jeans for your Christmas Eve get together, make sure they are neat without any holes or tears. Skinny jeans are the most popular jean style in fashion now, and many stores carry pairs that have shimmery thread or rhinestones which are perfect to wear for a special occasion. Instead of wearing a cotton hoodie or sweatshirt with your jeans, opt for a sequined cardigan over a fitted top. Cardigans are one of my personal favorite fashion pieces, as they are classic and will go with anything. For your shoes, a pair of comfortable ballet flats are perfect, and don’t forget to accessorize with sparkly jewelry. I also like to carry a shimmery clutch style purse with this ensemble, as it gives it a very classic, dressy edge.
Beautiful dresses in classic styles and fabrics are all the rage this season, and Christmas Eve is the perfect chance to wear one. One fabric that is very popular right now is lace. I personally love this because I am a laceaholic, and I plan on wearing a lace dress on Christmas Eve this year. If you decide to wear a lace dress, make sure you accentuate with classic accessories. Simple diamond stud earrings, kitten heels, and a simple clutch evening bag work very well with this look and will keep you from looking overly dressed up.
If lace is too frilly for your taste, a classic sheath dress is just perfect for a dressy holiday look. Sheath dresses are all the rage now, and come in a variety of colors and lengths. To give a modern twist to this look, add a pair of solid black tights, stacked high heels, and a flashy statement necklace.
Over sized tunics worn with a pair of leggings and flat suede boots are also a great comfortable choice, as are mini dresses worn with a pair of solid colored tights and knee high boots. Many retailers such as Express for Women now carry tunics adorned with sequins and glitter, which are perfect for a formal or dressy occasion. Add a large gold or silver bangle cuff, long necklaces, and a pair of hoop earrings and you are good to go. Over sized tunics also go great with skinny jeans and a pair of platform heels.
