Let's pause for a second to talk about holiday style. Chances are, you have a holiday party on the agenda and probably a sparkly dress on your shopping list (or sparkly suit if it's more your style). But, there's one important thing to keep in mind while planning what to wear—you want to be comfortable. When it's cold, dark, and the drinks are flowing, you need an outfit that's stylish but will get you through the night free of foot pain and awkward outfit malfunctions.
To prove that the elusive cozy-meets-chic party look exists, we did a little digging to find eight styles we love right now. Each is cool enough to impress even the toughest fashion critic, but it still manages to make comfort a priority (as it should be). Then we shopped pieces inspired by each ensemble so you can get the look of your choice too. Now, all that's left is to break open the champagne and say cheers to these comfortable and stylish holiday looks!

Block Heels + Treggings + Coat
Swap out stilettos for a comfy pair of block heels, style with cool stirrup leggings, and finish with a plaid statement coat.
Over-the-Knee Boots + Miniskirt + Sweater
For a more dressed-up ensemble, consider styling over-the-knee boots and a suede mini skirt with a cozy sweater.
Printed Jacket + Black Jeans + Boots
Swap out your standard black blazer for one that packs a punch. Style with relaxed jeans and boots, and you'll make a statement the comfy way.
Turtleneck + Midi Skirt + Ballet Flats
You'll be able to dance, drink, and be merry pain-free.
Slip Dress + T-Shirt + Fuzzy Jacket
A slip dress looks super elegant, but the loose fit means it's comfy too.
Sweater + Metallic Skirt
Get your holiday on with a festive sparkly skirt, but keep things cozy by pairing it with a punchy sweater.
Blazer + Zip-Up Sweatshirt + Velvet Pants
What's not to love about a soft, stretchy pair of velvet bottoms? Pair with a fitted sweatshirt, and add polish with a blazer.
If it were up to us, we'd spend our entire holiday in cozy pajamas. Luckily, with a polished pair, it's possible!
