8 Unexpected Holiday Party Outfits

Dior by Maria Grazia Chiuri.
The best part of going out is dressing up, right?

The holidays are here! Is it just me, or have these past few months just flown by? December for me, is at the same time the most stressful and the best month of the year. Twinkle lights and holiday frenzy is all around and it’s a busy time for everyone, whether you’re worrying about the best presents to buy for your loved ones, or if you, like me, are stuck in a haze of homework and exam preparations. When am I ever going to have time to pick out what to wear for the fast approaching holiday festivities? Luckily, a few of our favourite gals on Instagram has got some ideas for us.

Sheer fabrics allows for layering in the most festive way. Colour block with your accessories and you’re set.

Honestly, leather palazzo pants are just #goals.

Jeans and a white shirt is a bulletproof combo, and allows for major accessorizing.

The holidays are the perfect occasion to break out the sequins! Mix with another texture to create depth.

Monochrome does not equal boring, and it’s the perfect opportunity to experiment with interesting cuts and shapes.

For when you want to wear a dress, but don’t feel like dying of pneumonia.

Trousers with slits are genius for emphasizing your footwear.

It’s everywhere at the moment, and nothing says ~holiday spirit~ quite like velvet.

What do you think of this article?


I founded Couturesque Magazine when I was 15 years old because like many of my peers, I felt ignored and talked down to by all of the other teen fashion publications out there. I figured that at the end of the day, the people who knew the most about my generation, were the people who belonged to it. The fashion industry is becoming increasingly dependent on the creativity of younger voices who challenge the status quo and make us rethink what we wear and why we wear it. And that is exactly what Couturesque set out to celebrate - authenticity, intelligence, originality, and diversity... in other words, what makes Gen-Z tick. Fast-forward to 2016 and we now have a staff of more than a dozen fashion distruptors contributing to our daily content from all around the globe, 100K+ readers following us from Toronto to New York, to London, Copenhagen, Berlin, Tokyo, and Tel Aviv, and a plethora of big-wig industry fans and collaborators. But what matters to us the most is the responsibility that our publication has to make a positive impact in the lives of those who come across it - we stand against retouching our photoshoots and we stand for sharing the beautiful, individual, complex voices of everyone, especially those who feel marginalized by mainstream fashion media. We hope that you love our site as much as we do and that you take the time to follow us (Facebook / Twitter / Instagram / Pinterest / Tumblr / Snapchat / YouTube) throughout our journey to make fashion accessible to the powerful young adults of today.
