Sometimes you have a holiday event that calls for some extra pizazz. From themed holiday parties, to nights out on the town, you have to pick out the perfect outfit and accessories to match. So start with your destination!

Are you attending a tree lighting with friends? Is it outdoors? Make sure you dress for the weather. Is the weather outside frightful, throw on your favorite scarf, gloves and coat over your favorite sweater dress and cozy tights with comfy boots to keep you warm while you wait. Grab a festive hot beverage on your way to make the anticipation more bearable.

Are you attending a gala or black tie event? Grab your favorite, most festive, bejeweled, flowing gown, throw on your most comfortable heels and grab that jewel encrusted clutch you only wear for special occasions. Give yourself some glitzy gold eye makeup, and wear your favorite lashes, top it off with a nude lip and you are ready to jet.

Are you attending a show with family? This seems like the perfect time to break out your favorite coordinate set. Theaters often tend to be on the chillier side, so maybe throw on a faux fur coat to add a little extra flair to your outfit for the night. Pair your outfit with a comfortable pair of boots or nice heeled booties.

Maybe you are just hanging out with some friends for a present swap and snacks. In that case, keep it comfy and throw on your favorite leggings and a big cozy sweater. Bonus points for “ugly Christmas sweater parties”.
Pair your comfy outfit with some fuzzy socks, comfy boots and maybe a beanie to keep your noggin warm. Bring some hot chocolate and marshmallows to share with all of your close friends and enjoy that quality time!

I hope this gave you some inspiration for your next special holiday event. Show me your outfit of the nights by tagging @styleastronaut #styleastronaut on social media!
