How to Dress for a Christmas Party


A big part of the fun of Christmas parties is in dressing up and preparing for it. What you wear, however, can have a big impact on how you are perceived by others and, ultimately, on how comfortable you feel at the party. Read on to learn how to dress for a Christmas party.

  • Find out in advance if there is a dress code for the party. If the Christmas party is being held in a restaurant, theater or rented space, the organizers can probably tell you what they expect the atmosphere to be. Even just a general idea, such as casual attire, black tie or formal will guide you in your selection of clothes.

  • Err on the side of discretion. If you are wearing a skirt, keep it knee-length or longer. Bring a jacket or a large scarf to wrap around your shoulders. This is an especially good idea if you don’t know the people at the party and there’s a chance you can be over or underdressed in comparison.

  • Dress casual unless you have an indication that the Christmas party will be formal. Casual, however, does not mean jeans and a white T-shirt. Instead, pair the jeans with a nice blouse or a pastel shirt and a pair of boots or sandals.

  • Wear something red or gold, the traditional colors of Christmas. Avoid holiday sweaters or anything overly Christmas related. Instead, wear an elegant accessory such as a shawl or jewelry in the right colors.

Tips & Warnings

  • Talk to others who are also attending to see what they will be wearing. Not only will you feel more comfortable with a similar wardrobe, but you are also less likely to wear something inappropriate.
