'Tis the season to party and celebrate with loved ones. And you know what that means — you'll need plenty of party-appropriate outfit ideas that will work for any occasion. The end of the year is a crazy-busy time for everyone, between family holiday dinners, office parties, gift swaps, and more. It can be stressful enough without also having to worry about what to wear.

Luckily, Gap has tons of versatile, festive pieces that can work for any dress code and any style. We rounded up some of our favorites below and included some simple styling tips. Whether your style is laid back and casual or all about the glitz and glam, there's something here for everyone. So go ahead and RSVP "yes" to those invites in your inbox!

Gap Satin V-Neck Jumpsuit

Gap Satin V-Neck Jumpsuit

If you're not into dresses, a flowy jumpsuit, like this satin v-neck option ($62, originally $90) from Gap, is our recommendation. It provides the comfort and security of pants, but still looks formal enough for a party. Accessorize with sparkly statement pieces — a bedazzled clutch or a pearl-encrusted headband.

Gap Softest Turtleneck Sweater Dress

Gap Softest Turtleneck Sweater Dress

A midi sweater dress is our holiday party go-to for a sophisticated seasonal look. The Gap Softest Turtleneck Sweater Dress ($55-$63) boasts flattering details like a tie belt and leg slits on both sides. Best of all, you don't have to worry about getting too cold, a major annoyance when dressing for a winter party.

Gap Recycled High Rise Velvet Wide Leg Pants

Gap Recycled High Rise Velvet Wide Leg Pants

These slouchy Gap Recycled High Rise Velvet Wide Leg Pants ($47, originally $80) feel like wearing pajamas but look a whole lot better. Rich navy velvet encapsulates holiday style, and the relaxed fit is effortlessly cool. We like these with loafers and a printed blouse. Or amp up the cool factor by wearing them with an oversize white tee and gold jewelry.

Gap Cozy Fair Isle Sweater

Gap Cozy Fair Isle Sweater

You heard it here first. Ugly Christmas sweaters are out, and alpine-inspired Fair Isle knits are where it's at. The Gap Cozy Fair Isle Sweater ($59, originally $85) has a mock neck, balloon sleeves, and a striking black-and-white pattern. If a sweater and jeans is your failsafe winter uniform, opt for a pullover like this one that is a party all on its own.

Gap Shirred Henley Top

Gap Shirred Henley Top

Plaid and the holidays go together like milk and cookies, which is why we are obsessing over the Gap Shirred Henley Top ($27-$29). This preppy piece will look incredible tucked into tapered menswear-style trousers with high-heeled mules in a seasonal color. Think silver, gold, or even red.

Gap Cable Knit Sweater

Gap Cable Knit Sweater

We've decided that pink is officially a holiday color now. After all, it goes great with red and green. The Gap Cable Knit Sweater ($51, originally $65) in Sizzling Pink Fuschia is a piece you'll wear in your everyday life, but you can also dress it up for a party. Style it with a miniskirt, tights, and shimmery metallic ballet flats.

Jeans have gotten a party-ready makeover with the Gap Mid Rise Vintage Slim Coated Jeans ($80). These shiny burgundy bottoms bridge casual and festive, best paired with a sleek black turtleneck and ankle boots.
