December starts Saturday, which means the holiday party circuit is about to be in full swing. Figuring out how to dress for such soirées can be challenging: They can require a quick outfit change after work or some clever day-to-night dressing; you might have to figure out how to wear a dress and heels without freezing to death when you go outside; you might not have a coat that goes with your outfit.
Our advice? Stay home and watch Netflix in your PJs, or start planning your holiday party look now. Celebrities have been sporting an array of party-appropriate looks this past week, providing plenty of inspiration. Alexa Chung looked like a gift herself in a black mini dress with a giant bow neckline, paired smartly with slightly sheer black tights and heels; Michelle Obama showed us how a match-y pants set could work for a festive occasion; Emily Ratajkowski made a case for having your coat be your whole outfit; Rowan Blanchard chose a winter-appropriate long-sleeve dress (which one might pair with tights outside of Los Angeles); and Halima Aden showed a strong top-and-skirt option. Even men like A$AP Rocky's and Ezra Miller's Dior Men's looks had elements that anyone could incorporate into their holiday outfits, like a lace shirt, shiny pants, or a floral-printed jacket.
