Video Post: Alternative Holiday Party Outfits

Tired of wearing the same, expected holiday party outfits? Sure, a sequin top is cute. Yes, black and red looks festive. But after a while, we find ourselves bored with our party clothes. Why? Because our holiday stand-bys are everyone's holiday stand-bys. Enter Liz Kelleher Sells, founder of Sells & Co., located in Winchester and Boston, Massachusetts. Watch above as Liz and I chat about three alternative holiday party outfits (details below)!

Casual to Cocktails: Sometimes you don't have hours to prepare for a party - you need your daytime clothes to transition easily into evening. This floral dress looks carefree under a cozy sweater jacket with black tights and boots. Once you arrive at the soirĂ©e, just shed the sweater and your look is champagne-worthy!

Regal Rebel: It's easy to add an edge to your holiday classics. A sequined mini may be costume de rigueur, but try adding a tough leather vest or a leather jacket over your delicate frock. Suddenly your look is a little bit refined and a little bit rock-n-roll!

Classic with a Twist: You don't have to give up entirely on red and black! Modernize the classic holiday color combination by adding small contemporary twists - studded flats and zipper details are a great way to incorporate trends into a traditional outfit.

What are you wearing to holiday parties this year?

  1. Great job once again, Kristen. Those looks are rockin! You're like a pro now. It's a nice change to have a video. Definitely keep doing them :)

  2. OH dear..those boots are going on my wish list!

  3. You're right, we don't always have to reach for the 'quins. I do like to do that, though - last year I wore a sequined jacket to work with jeans and a t-shirt, and for the xmas party I was torn - so wore something simple with gold jewellery - black and gold will be my go to this xmas season, I think.

  4. I agree, Hogger & Co.! It IS so easy to reach for the sequins. For good reason! They're great for the holidays. But I find that I wear the same holiday stuff over and over and was fun to mix it up.

  5. Oooh... I love the regal rebel look! Very edgy and cool. They're all great, but that one is definitely my favorite.
