The holiday season is upon us, and with that comes a festivity-filled agenda. From work parties to Friendsgivings, big meals with family, and sweet date nights with your partner, there are a whole lot of activities where you're going to need an outfit that meets the occasion.
Ahead you'll find our favorite celebratory clothes and accessories for a holiday season well-dressed. Whether you've got an upcoming black-tie New Year's Eve wedding to attend or a series of more casual gatherings, we've got pieces to have you looking and feeling your most festive.
Miss Selfridge Satin Ruched Bust Jumpsuit
The tricky thing about a work party is finding an outfit with the right mix of festivity and sophistication. We think this silky jumpsuit ($39) will do just fine. The sweetheart neckline and puff shoulders provide a more fancy look, while the silhouette is relaxed and billowy. As for accessories, you can do just about anything: a bold headband, dangly earrings, or a necklace with some sparkle.
ASOS Design Headband With Oversized Pearl Detail
There's nothing like a fun headpiece to take any outfit to the next level. Whether you're wearing jeans and a tee for brunch with friends or a sheath dress at a work event, this pearl-embellished headband ($11, originally $18) will imbue your look with just the right amount of jubilance.
ASOS Design Mini Cami Dress in Fluffy Black Sequin
For a New Year's Eve celebration where sparkles are expected, look no further than this eye-catching sequin minidress ($52). We love the slightly relaxed fit, the low scoop front, and, of course, the rows of black sequins. With such a stunning dress, you won't need much to accessorize (unless you want to!). Slip on some black heels, grab a purse, and you'll be ready to ring in 2023 in style.
Max Mara Flou Long Wide-Leg Cuffed Wool Trousers
For more casual holiday events that require some polish, these handsome cuffed wool trousers ($995) will be the perfect canvas to build on. Pair them with a silk blouse, a puff-sleeve tee, or even a sleek bodysuit with a blazer. Heels or leather boots and some sparkly jewelry will cap off the festive look.
Oscar de la Renta Crystal Bow Earrings
Whether you're wearing a little black dress, distressed jeans and a cozy sweater, or even a silky jumpsuit, these earrings ($390) will immediately deliver holiday vibes. Oversize and packed with tiny crystals, they're as festive as they are eye-catching — the cherry on top of your celebratory look.
Khaite Lorimer Patent Leather Pumps
There is nothing more party-ready than a pair of shiny patent-leather Mary Janes. With a rounded heel and the slightest elastic strap, these Khaite pumps ($840) elevate the classic style and make them just a bit more elegant. Wear them with a cocktail dress and tights or even a pair of sleek trousers. Whatever your holiday agenda may be, they'll be your go-to shoe. We're sure of it.
ASOS Design One Shoulder Origami Midi Dress
For more formal holiday parties, you'll need a dress that can meet the occasion. This gorgeous red midi ($100) can do just that. Embellished with an oversize shoulder puff and wide pockets that extend from the wrapped waist, it's as festive as it is vibrant: a true holiday dress made for those special holiday moments.
New Arrivals Loco Bow-Detailed Twill Mini Dress
For those holiday parties that require an LBD, we have just the thing. This darling mini ($540) is sweet and alluring, thanks to an oversize bow in the back; an accentuated A line; and a short, flouncy hem. Pair it with your favorite metallic heels or some bold jewelry. This is a piece you'll wear again and again, for this holiday season and maybe even the next.

Love wearing winter whites? Try this adorable mini ($312) that's embellished with countless 3D flowers from hem to hem. Wear it with some dangling sparkly earrings or some oversize studs, pop on a pair of heels, and you'll be ringing in the new year looking like a star.
G. Label by Goop Vilan Tank Sweaterdress
Both sophisticated and a little coquettish, this tank sweater dress ($188, originally $625) is built to be a year-long wardrobe staple. We love the idea of dressing it up for the holiday season, which is simple since it matches just about everything, from slouchy leather boots and sky-high pumps to a fitted blazer or even a fur coat. Whether your holiday plans involve casual gatherings or something more fancy, this dress will see you through — looking gorgeous.
