8 Holiday Party Looks To Try If You’re Not A Dress Person

It’s time you ditch the LBD in favour of some underplayed holiday separates — skirts, jumpsuits, jackets, and blouses. These picks can be mixed and matched for any holiday soirée, and worn well into 2018 when you’re back to the nine to five grind. Read on for some modern party dress alternatives that are sure to make a lasting festive impression.

Red lips are a holiday staple so this Delfi Collective skirt, patterned with surrealist floating lips, is quite the holiday miracle. With an abstract print, asymmetrical hem and midi length, this sans sparkle, pleated-to-perfection skirt is the perfect holiday day to evening piece. 29Secrets Pick: Delfi Collective Pleated & Printed Skirt at Anthropologie ($369 USD)

This emerald printed jacquard jumpsuit is just the Parisian refresher party dressing needs. Wear it with a sock and sandal combo and a faux-fur coat for a chic ‘70s get-up. 29Secrets Pick: Urban Outfitters Lily Jacquard Lace-Up Jumpsuit ($99)

Whimsical and full of life, this velvet bomber is a party in itself. Layer it over a shiny sheer top or a graphic tee with some cut-off jeans for a cool and comfortable party-ready look. 29Secrets Pick: Mango Floral Embroidered Jacket ($169.99)

If you think about it, the colour orange is reminiscent of all things festive (mulled wine, spices, pumpkin pie!), so an orange silk blouse only seems fitting this time of year. It also happens to pair perfectly with a number of casual bottoms; tucked into vintage jeans, a trusty pair of wide-leg trousers or styled with a leather miniskirt. 29Secrets Pick: H&M Blouse with Ties ($59.99)

The trendiest holiday ensembles of the season are decked in feathers, but this feather-trimmed Topshop pantsuit takes the cake. It’s dark and moody and reminds us of Natalie Portman in Black Swan, but it’s also fun holiday glamour at its best. 29Secrets Pick: Topshop Feather Trim Blazer ($112.08) & Topshop Feather Trim Kick Flare Trousers ($77.59)

This year, consider sporting a metallic knit to a holiday party — because let’s face it; whether it’s the middle of July or December, some of us are always cold. This lightweight shimmering number will help you beat the chill and still feel festive AF. 29Secrets Pick: Forever21 Metallic Lurex Mock Neck Top ($22.90)

This candy cane red-striped tunic and trouser combo can be dressed up or down by layering either a lace camisole underneath or a full-sleeved turtleneck — and if you’re feeling brave, go commando (everyone from Kim Kardashian to Demi Lovato have proved that sometimes less really is more). 29Secrets Pick:
Zara Long Asymmetric Tunic ($99.90) & Zara Striped Trousers ($69.90)

A luxurious velvet trouser in the richest of ruby reds, emerald greens and sapphire blues is a holiday party game-changer: cozy, feminine and effortlessly elegant. Bonus points if you play it up with different textures like lace, leather and faux-fur — essentially, the more the merrier. 29Secrets Pick: Express Mid Rise Wide Leg Velvet Pant ($34.95)
