The holidays are a time for connecting with friends, visiting family, and — of course — celebrating with parties, big or small. After all, they don't call it the most wonderful time of the year for no reason. As your end-of-the-year calendar fills up, you may be starting to fret about what to wear to your annual Friendsgiving or Secret Santa gift swap. Thankfully, Old Navy has you covered with its party-ready holiday line.

The collection goes all in on romantic details, like ruffled sleeves and luxe velvet fabric. Plus, the pieces are so festive and versatile on their own that you can make them work for any dress code. We put together five outfits for different types of parties, mixing and matching the new items with classic Old Navy denim. Let this be your guide, so you don't have to add stressing over what to wear to your holiday to-do list.

Pointelle, ruffles, balloon sleeves, oh-my! The Old Navy Pointelle-Knit Ruffle-Sleeve Sweater ($45) is the flirty statement knit of our dreams. We suggest styling it with the brand's Higher High-Waisted O.G. Straight Jeans ($40) and your favorite pair of booties or heeled mules. Top off your look with a bow — the Loeffler Randall Rayne Platinum Bow Clutch ($250), to be precise.

You can't go wrong with velvet during the holiday season. The blush pink Old Navy Elbow-Sleeve Split-Neck Velvet Swing Blouse ($35) pairs perfectly with dark-wash denim, like these cropped jeans ($40). Sparkly ballet flats are low-key and comfortable, but still bring that festive flair. We love the maximalist details of the Kate Spade Buckle Up Flats ($218), from the confetti-trimmed tweed to the bedazzled buckle.

Florals may seem like an unexpected choice for winter, but the Old Navy Long-Sleeve Tiered Floral Midi Swing Dress ($55) comes in a pretty — and seasonally appropriate — evergreen shade. Offset the ditsy floral print with an edgy footwear choice, such as these white combat boots ($525) from Rag & Bone. We like this look with the Johnstons of Elgin Ribbed Cashmere Beanie ($145).

At this point, we don't need to tell you that dressing for virtual events is all about your top and accessories. The Old Navy Ruffle-Trim French-Terry Cropped Sweatshirt ($40) is our cozy and cute go-to for Zoom celebrations. A hair accessory, like the black velvet Hill House Halo Headband ($75), adds an extra fashionable touch that will pop on webcam. Keep it simple on the bottom with Old Navy High-Waisted O.G. Straight Black-Wash Jeans ($40).
