There is something about picking out a holiday party look that can feel so stressful. Is it sparkly enough? Festive enough? Chic enough? Then, add budget on top of that, and — eek! So when we heard about the JW Jason Wu limited time edit would be available exclusively online and in-stores at Kohl's, we were pretty giddy over all the holiday party potential. Not only is every look elevated and sophisticated, but each piece is under $100. This means we can dress ourselves for every festive fete without going broke. From office parties to family gatherings, see how we would style each of these JW Jason Wu knockouts this season.
You can never go wrong with a jumpsuit, but this JW Jason Wu sleeveless tuxedo jumpsuit is particularly perfect. The shiny lapels create an elevated juxtaposition, turning a basic all-black jumpsuit into a cocktail-approved ensemble. Try dressing it up even more with a faux fur bolero and strappy heels for an evening event.
Have tickets to the Nutcracker? What about a dinner date? This sweet Swiss dot midi dress is the ideal outfit. The sheer, ruffled bodice over a sweetheart neckline creates a feminine and romantic silhouette — one you'll want to wear far beyond the holiday season. Accessorize with a pearl headband and ankle strap pumps for the perfect finishing touches.
If your office holiday party is an after-work event, you'll need a dress that's festive while still appropriate for the workplace. This red, poppy-print wrap dress is on trend yet sophisticated, making it the ideal dress to wear when getting festive with your coworkers. Pair it with pointy-toe booties and a black headband for day and throw on a matching red lip for night!
If you really want to show off your fashion sensibilities and style smarts, show up to your New Year's Eve party in this smart tuxedo look. The shiny details and silky cami create this pant and blazer combo and elevated finish, while the flat loafers and elastic stretch make it an actually comfortable outfit to wear until midnight. Plus, you'll be able to wear the whole look as separates well beyond the new year.
While it seems like a very bold choice, this red jumpsuit will actually become your go-to party outfit when you discover all the versatile ways you can wear it. While the bodice is fitted and flattering, the pants are wide-leg, so you can expect to be comfortable dancing all night long. Try pairing it with a faux-suede trench and nude sandals for a truly standout look.
