Winter is the perfect season for creative layers, but you surely don’t want to look too covered-up and bulky when heading to parties. If you’re thinking on how to look fashionable and chic to parties without freezing in the chilly weather, keep on reading for out 5 cozy ways to dress for a party.
- Go for a sophisticated dress in thick, but touch-enticing fabrics.
Nothing beats the simplicity of a dress while knitted dresses in substantial fabrications, sweater dresses, A-line dresses with handkerchief hems, and sack dresses give you enough comfort. Like fashion blogger Nicole Warne, you may even think of a body con knitted dress in conservative hemline perfect for a simple and classic party. Like her, just polish your simple looks with elegant and fine jewelry as “less is more”. To make your style more festive, think of a fur dress, sequin dress, or a statement dress with avant-garde touches that keeps you stylish while keeping you cozy. Kristina Bazan pulled her cozy party outfit with a brightly-colored dress with no fuss and finished her looks with a statement clutch.
- Dress up your favorite knitted sweater with party-ready bottoms.
Knitted turtlenecks and sweater are versatile enough to match any ensemble in our closet, and wearing them to formal parties is not surprising at all. Fashion blogger Blair Eadie creatively turned her classic knits into party-ready outfits by teaming it with a whimsical tulle skirt, fur skirt, and even a full skirt in festive colors. Red is known to be the festive shade and wearing head-to-toe red makes your outfit party-ready without unnecessary sparkle and glam. If you’re not a fan of cozy knits, then opt for tops with thicker fabric and just finish them off with a festive touch.
- Bring some party-like vibe to your neutral pieces with glamorous ensembles.
Shiny trousers, metallic pants, tulle skirt, and even sequin pants are indeed designed for parties. If you’re not a fan of bright and blinding colors, copy Blair Eadie’s style of wearing her simple pussy bow blouse with a neutral-colored but glamorous sequin pants making her looks party-appropriate without wearing vivid shades. The black and white combination always works, so be creative mixing and matching your tops and bottoms to create unexpected party-ready combinations.
- Show off your artistic skills by putting your outfit together.
Whether you’re a fan of mixing prints, clashing colors, or wearing statement outfits, you can always show your artistic side in putting your outfit together. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may think of a structural outfit composed of a striped sweater, cut-out footwear, and a structured clutch to create a statement. Creating stylish layers with your coats, jacket, vest, and a simple shirt, as well as choosing color blocked pieces, like Blair Eadie did can make your party outfit cozy. You may also think of matching your prints with your accessories like teaming your plaid skirt with your plaid scarf, or checkered shoes with your checkered skirt will make a big difference in your looks.
- Make a dramatic statement with your coats.
Coats are stylish and functional pieces in the chilly weather that can make your outfit look glamorous while keeping you cozy. Whether you’re a fan of festive colors, loud prints, or touch-enticing fabrics, select a coat that shows off your personality without losing your outfit drama. Just finish your looks with classic pumps, heeled booties, or stilettos to give you more glam and confidence.
