Perfect Party Outfits From R29's Holiday Bash

It's true: Sometimes the R29 staff likes to party. You may even be surprised to see us hit the dance floor, throw our hands in the air, and sing along to a Mariah Carey Christmas jam on occasion. 'Tis the season, right? However, there's one thing we have always come to expect from our fellow super-fine Refinery partygoers, and that's some sizzlin' style to emulate immediately. We looked no further than our own staff holiday shindig to find a few knockout looks you can strategically knock off for your own festive fête. Check these five perfect holiday ensembles from R29's very own style stars, and learn to recreate the magic before the ball drops.

"This outfit is vintage, via my mother (and the shoes are Steve Madden for LF— I can't walk in them properly but I'm still obsessed)! Not sure if the blazer and skirt are actually meant to go together but I love the look for its festive flair and Cher-esque vibe."

"I picked up this vintage bustier a few months ago, slightly unsure whether I would wear it or not. Well, let me tell you, it's gotten quite a trot around the block already. I'm petite so my trick is to tuck it into high waisted things (Hot tip: Pull a pair of Spanx over the bustier to prevent adding extra bulk!)...I've worn it with a black chiffon mini, a silk floral maxi skirt, and with these vintage silk pants. It's yet to fail me."

"Because I secretly love the idea of wearing silk pajamas to a holiday party, this outfit almost satisfies the same impulse. The dress is from my new favorite line called Hatch, which caters to women during and after pregnancy (yes, it's a maternity dress!). Even though it's free-flowing, I find it incredibly glamorous and a little avant garde."

Hatch by twobirds The Soiree Dress, $348, available at Hatch, Dorothy Perkins Black Crew Neck sweater, $35, available at Dorothy Perkins, Kenneth Jay Polished Lobster Claw Necklace, $220, available at Shopbop, Franchi Jennifer Nappa, $182.99, available at Zappos, Loeffler Randall Maudie Lace-Up Bootie, $298, available at Loeffler Randall.

On Christene: Hatch Collection dress, Jil Sander cardigan, Rachel Comey boots, Henri Bendel fringe evening purse.

"I've somehow found a way to wear this vintage tuxedo jumpsuit every year. Since it's so low-cut, I layer it with this sheer leotard I have (don't ask me how I got it)."

"I can't seem to keep away from an LBD, even during the holiday party season. Luckily, this midi-length, not-too-basic black dress with netting paired with vintage jewel-toned accessories and multi-colored peep toes allowed me to mix the new with the old for an unconventionally festive holiday look. (I even added a plastic bow to my hair for some added Christmas-y cheer, a la R29 Month of Beauty!)"

Rare Sheer Mesh Maxi Dress, $70.52, available at Topshop, Armani Rouge D'Armani Lipstick, $30, available at Bloomingdales, Charlotte Russe ZigZag-Stitch Patent Platform Pump, $37.50, available at Charlotte Russe, Topshop Black Clean Lock Clutch Bag, $56, available at Topshop, Kara by Kara Ross Teardrop Genuine Snakeskin Clip Earrings, $255, available at Nordstrom.
