9 Suits For Holiday Parties That Are Just As Fun & Fancy As Dresses


There's a certain thrill that comes with the holidays each year. Decorating, shopping for presents, and party planning can be fun, and for some, bring excitement about what's to come when the holidays arrive. Getting dressed for holiday parties can provide just as much of a rush, especially if you're someone who enjoys getting fancy for events. However, if you're not a fan of dresses or you just can't stand the chill that comes with having your ankles exposed in the winter, finding the perfect outfit that's not a dress to wear for those get-togethers can start to be a drag. Thankfully, there's a simple solution, and it comes in the form of a chic holiday suit.

Maybe you're not a dress person, or maybe you just can't get yourself to wear tights under a breezy frock on a 30-degree night. Whatever the case, a sleek two-piece is an easy fix — and one that's sure to impress just as much.

Want an option that's especially festive? RIXO's matching $250.29 Two Stripe Double Breasted Blazer and $198.95 Two Stripe Flared Cropped Trouser will do the trick. And with such a show-stopping look, you barely need to add anything else. Wear the blazer alone and add a pair of shiny heels to finish (Area's Crystal-Embellished Lamé Mules will complete it perfectly).


Looking for something that's just as sleek, but less obviously "holiday"? Gabriela Hearst has a stunningly simple answer. The Dorothea Off-The-Shoulder Silk And Wool-Blend Blazer for $2,100 has a pair of $995 Masto Silk And Wool-Blend Tapered Pants to match, and in a subdued navy blue hue, the silhouette and subtle sheen will be able to shine. Since your outfit will be more minimal and your shoulders bared, now's the time to let your jewelry take center stage. The asymmetrical Full Moon Continuum Mismatched Earrings from MOUNSER are a choice that's sure to standout, or add Peet Dullaert's Artisanal Riya Choker Necklace for more of a statement around your neck.

For a more budget-friendly option, & Other Stories is full of two-piece gems that range from casual to basically black tie. The $129 Velvet Belted Blazer and coordinating $89 High Waisted Velvet Pants will work for practically any holiday party — just add some jewelry and a pretty clutch. And if you just really want to wear pajamas (the holidays are exhausting — who can blame you?) the blue Ikat Jacquard Blazer and pants will let you do so in style.

There's really no denying that suits are having a moment in 2018. Blake Lively can't stop wearing the trend, Olivia Munn sported a velvet green option on a talk show, and Vanessa Hudgens even collaborated on a line of suits. And with the holidays arriving, it's the perfect time to take advantage of the moment in a fun, fancy way.
