The How-To Lounge: Perfecting Your Holiday Hosting Outfit

You're hosting a holiday party at home and have no idea what to wear — for some helpful tips on marrying practicality and fashion, click here to


Since you're the hostess with the mostess, you should dress to impress all while keeping comfort in mind.

  • If you're having a more laid-back party, jeans are okay as long as you opt for dark or black denim. Pair your jeans with a more festive top or sweater and make use of your accessories.
  • Since you will be walking around playing hostess, either wear flats or a low heel so you're not uncomfortable at your own party.
  • If you're going to be in and out of the kitchen all night, wear a cute apron to protect your clothes.
  • If you have long hair that's always in your face, wear a headband or pin it up so you don't get your hair in the food, decorations, or — God forbid — anywhere near a candle.

I hope these tips are helpful for you this weekend or the days leading up to the big day and good luck!

Yeah... my big holiday party is tomorrow night... I still have no idea what to wear. It's kind of the least of my concerns at the moment since my kitchen is buried under about 2 inches of flour and I still have 4 dozen latkes to fry... I need a stylist to worry about this for me!
