A Classy Holiday Party Outfit You Won't Freeze In

This is THE time of year to dress up with our loveliest of frocks and fanciest of shoes. However, many times, these outfits mean we’re freezing our rear ends off at our annual holiday parties. I don’t know about you, but nearly every dress in my closet is sleeveless and not made with terribly thick material. But you can easily transform those chilly little dresses into a cold weather appropriate outfit!

The key, once again, is to add layers. Invest in as many cardigans as you can, ladies! I bought a ton of these cropped cardigans when I was living by a Review Australia store in Sydney. However, if you’re not in Australia (and don’t want to pay the shipping fees), I also love ModCloth’s cropped cardigan selection (with sizes ranging from XXS – 4X in 8 colors).

Next up, you’re going to need to make sure your legs are toasty! Black tights are always a win in my book. However, there are so many fun colored and printed options these days! They can really add a fun pop to your outfits. My favorites are the “Accent Your Ensemble Tights,” they come in 9 different colors and they are built to last. I own several pairs and have had them all for about 3 years now with no runs to speak of! That’s impressive. (Amazon also has great selections too.)

Now, I know petticoats aren’t for everyone. However, if there is one of time of year to try one, the holidays are it! It’s fun to add a little extra frill at this time of year. Oh, and it’s also an extra layer to keep your bum warm. Haha. (And the one I’m wearing is only $14 on Amazon.)

    Tights for 3 years with no runs??? Yes, that is impressive, dear Lindsey! I love petticoats and your outfit is amazing! I loved the skirt, that is the kind of skirt I like to wear on Christmas (as a personal rule, I wear a black outfit on Christmas and a lighter one on NYE, to attract positive energy and it has been working for years 🙂 You look very beautiful! Hope you have a great weekend!

    I love this outfit! You’re so right, a warm party outfit is perfect, because so many things look cute but just aren’t practical! I do have a Christmas party tonight actually, but it’s very casual, so I’ll be wearing my comfiest clothing!
    Happy December girl!

    I love this look, Lindsey!! It’s so festive and cute 🙂 I don’t have any parties coming up but I do have to go to a luncheon for work so I’ll take these tips for that for sure.
    Also – your photos are soooo pretty.

    Your hair looks amazing Lindsey! I really like the way you styled it. Also, your idea of wearing this cardigan over your dresses to stay warm is wonderful. Your white cardigan matches perfectly with your shoes as well. Hope you are having a wonderful week!
