15 Uncomplicated Holiday Party Outfits I'd Like to Copy and Paste From Instagram

This time of the year is a busy one. Between winter work deadlines, press events, holiday dinners, gift shopping, and travel organizing, I find myself low on time all the time, so when it comes to dressing for holiday parties, I tend to rely on simple yet striking outfit formulas that work every time. In fact, I've come across some seriously chic, festive, and easy ensembles on Instagram lately that I am unquestionably going to copy and paste on myself. These feature elevated details, luxe fabrics, and striking silhouettes—all with a festive flair—that are easy to put together yet look like you've made the effort.

If you, too, are looking for uncomplicated holiday outfits that exude a fashion-forward touch, then take a look below, as I'm sharing some of my favorite holiday looks of the season as well as plenty of shopping picks so you can get the look for yourself. Enjoy the season!



You can never go wrong with a sleek black tube dress. Opt for one with a feather trim for a festive touch and pair it with simple heels to let the dress do the talking. 

A fancy top and jeans are perfect for a casual-chic party look. Go for a top with a striking detail such as trending rosettes. And if the top is fitted, keep the jeans loose. 



A festive matching set is an ideal option when you have no time to think. Try one in a shiny or silky fabric with a statement detail. Simple yet striking.



Turn heads in a sequin midi skirt and sparkly knit top. Keep the rest of your accessories simple for an Insta-worthy look.

A pair of chic black pants can work for a holiday party with the addition of a pretty sheer blouse.



I'm a huge fan of a sequin skirt paired with a contrasting cozy knit. Keep the look party ready with sleek heels and fun accessories.



For a more dressed-up affair, opt for a stunning velvet maxi dress in a simple silhouette. Just add a sequin clutch. Minimalist chic at its finest.



Don't underestimate a cool pantsuit for a holiday party. Choose one in a festive fabric such as velvet, silk, or sequin tweed.



A silky slip dress is always a good idea. Go for deep, rich winter tones such as emerald or burgundy, and if it's cold out, create a layered look by styling it over a fitted black top. Give the look edge with a pair of chunky-sole boots.

There's nothing cooler than fancy sequins paired with light-wash jeans—effortless yet festive. I love this look for a house holiday party.



A silky slip skirt elevates an outfit in an instant. Pair with a sequin top, a classic black coat, and cool platforms for one seriously chic ensemble.

Velvet pants are one of my favorite items to wear during the holiday season. Not only do they look chic and festive, but they'll also keep you warm. Add a statement feather top and you're ready to party!



Lean into the trending sheer-sequin pieces we saw all over the runways for an of-the-moment holiday look.



Let your sequin miniskirt shine and pair it with a black fitted turtleneck, sheer tights, and knee-high boots. This look is uncomplicated and cool.

Match your rhinestone-embellished dress with sparkly shoes and chandelier earrings for a stunning outfit that is guaranteed to turn heads.
