The festive season is only a couple of weeks away, which means that most of us are crawling the internet and our neighborhood stores in search of festive wear.

Christmas Eve Dinner

This color-blocked ensemble by influencer Leonie Hanne screams Christmas. For those of you on the hunt for a Christmas Eve outfit, take notes. Not only is the metallic golden skirt totally on-trend, but its tough texture perfectly complements the soft feather detailing on the blouse. Whether it’s a Christmas feast at home with family and friends or fancy dinner reservations that are on your schedule for Christmas Eve, this look guarantees compliments.

Alternatively, if you prefer Christmas red, you can always wrap yourself in a strapless satin number à la Haya Jarrar. Dress it up with statement accessories, et voila

Christmas Day Brunch

Another color-blocked look, this time by Emili Sindlev, is giving us all the festive feels. The deep green sweetheart neckline top meets at the waist with a powder pink button-down skirt, and striking vermillion accessories make it a festive dressing dream.

When it comes to Christmas day dressing, we also particularly love Karen Wazen‘s one-shoulder high-slit red maxi dress. Suitable for both day and night social engagements, Wazen’s look is a festive must-have.

Christmas Movie Marathon

Who says you can’t dress up for an at-home Christmas movie marathon? If all you have scheduled on your holiday calendar is a festive movie binge with a cup of hot chocolate and Christmas cookies, dressing up is still on the table. Set the mood by slipping into festive PJs (think: plaid), like these ones worn by Reese Witherspoon.

New Year's Eve

New Year’s Eve is our excuse to go full throttle in the dressing department. Although the celebrations will be toned down this year, your NYE outfit can be as extra as you’d like. Crystal-embellished, sequin, feather-trimmed, there are absolutely no limits when it comes to your New Year’s Eve ensemble.

Skeptical about a dazzling dress? You can opt for a head-to-toe leather look instead.
