Women’s holiday outfits aren’t just about dresses. You can still look chic and festive with functional pieces like a colorful blouse, classic black pants, or even a jumpsuit. Even better, these staple pieces are easy to dress up or down depending on how fancy your occasion is – and you can wear them all year long!

For a playful, yet polished look, check out our Whitney Chain Stripe Jumpsuit that pairs well with a strappy sandal or simple suit jacket. If you’re looking for an alternative to the typical New Year’s Eve dress, a black jumpsuit with off-the-shoulder details and wide-leg pants is the perfect comfort-meets-chic companion for ringing in the new year.

Top off your functional holiday outfit with accessories like a sequin shrug or matching face mask to add a bit of glam while providing warmth on a cool December night!
