Holiday party season is upon us, people, and we couldn't be more excited. The food, the gifts, the festive decorations—what's not to love? Answer: the prep work. While we love being at the festivities, getting ready to attend these functions take a minute. And while we can't assist with all of the above, we can help out in the outfit department.
Take inspiration from these party-perfect pairings we've rounded up from Instagram. And because we're feeling extra helpful this season, we've divided the looks up by occasion, so that you'll look stylish and appropriate no matter where you're headed, be it dinner with the in-laws or an after-work office party. Oh, and did we mention that they were all created by YOU, our lovely and stylish readers, using budget-friendly pieces from our Who What Wear collection?
Whether you're searching for a more traditional party outfit or something a bit more out of the box, there's something for everyone among these seven standout looks.
This look screams post-work Friendsgiving dinner. The blazer makes the outfit completely office-appropriate, and it can easily be swapped with a leather or denim jacket when you're heading out to meet up with friends.

Whether you're meeting your S.O.'s family for the first time or you've known them for years, this is the perfect look for the occasion. Our chic, simple Cozy Turtleneck Sweater is a piece you'll end up wearing all winter long. To insert a touch of your personal style, pair it with your favorite wide-leg pants or pencil skirt, and add statement accessories.

Leather shorts + over-the-knee-boots + a simple top is a foolproof NYE look. Add in our Drapey Trench for an extra layer to brave the cold in style.

If you're attending a fancier soirée this holiday season, we recommend building your look around an on-trend velvet slip dress. Style it with simple ankle-strap sandals, a delicate clutch, and a faux-fur coat to keep you warm.

This polished looked is perfect for Thanksgiving lunch or dinner. Plus, trousers give you a bit more room to indulge in your favorite foods than your go-to jeans (and there's nothing wrong with that).
