You guys, it’s almost mid-November! And almost mid-November means the start and rush of all those holiday events we love and we sometimes kind of hate. I would say the overall consensus for people disliking holiday events is not knowing what to wear! What do you wear actually? Is this too fancy? Is this too racy? Am I too underdressed? I feel like we all end up standing in front of our closets, practically pulling out our hair minutes before the event. To make this season a tad bit easier, and well, to help you have more fun and stress less, I’ve created some simple outfits for you to mimic.
Here are 5 outfits for 5 different holiday occasions!

A Simple and Chill Holiday House Party 2 of 6
I plan on hosting a tiny party in my house this year, and I am super excited about it. The "house party" outfit seems to always be the most difficult. Especially when the party is your own. I suggest pairing a pair of your favorite white jeans, and a comfy t-shirt. Layer with some sparkle and with some easy-on, easy-off heels.
My shoes are from Forever 21:$39.80

Saturday Holiday Brunch 3 of 6
Around this time every year, all of my friends and family who live out of town and locally all want to catch up on Saturday mornings. The morning usually consists of walking around the holiday markets that take over New York City and a yummy brunch. For comfort, I say winterize your summer maxi. Pair it with a jacket, a bright and shiny necklace for a holiday appeal, and a comfy pair of sneakers.

Your Festive Work Party 4 of 6
A few days ago, fellow Babble blogger Merrick interpreted festive holiday party attire. Lately, most offices have the "festive" rule for holiday parties. My version for a work-friendly festive is a mix of professional and well ... flirty fun. Switching out a basic blazer for a blazer with a little sparkle is a tiny holiday addition. Adding a lace skirt and big bow headband makes this office number all the more festive! I would suggest also rocking your best red lip with an outfit similar to this!
Thanksgiving Dinner 5 of 6
For a Thanksgiving dinner with your whole family, a wide stretch skirt is your best choice. It helps with that stretching tummy at the table. Pairing the look with a blazer gives it a little touch of much needed fancy and holiday festive.
