13 Holiday Party Outfit Ideas To Steal From The Runways

It doesn’t take a walk through the mall to realize that the holidays are already upon us. While nutcracker-themed windows and Christmas trees in mid-November may feel premature, the holidays, without fail, always creep up on us, every single year. As do allllll of those holiday party invites we accepted in late September. Finding what to wear to them is a jigsaw puzzle on its own (and don't even get us started on gifting). We like to consider the following: how hard will it be snowing? What family members will be in attendance? Will the eggnog be spiked? While some perceive holiday dressing as another stressful burden, we consider it an opportunity! It's all about striking the balance between dressing the part without sacrificing your personal style.
We're eating pie for dinner, washing it down with hot toddies and playing "All I Want For Christmas Is You" on repeat! Indulging during the holidays is what makes the small talk at parties worth it. This year, we're taking our Christmastime style inspiration from the AW18 runways. Get your yuletide on and see the 13 looks we're recreating.
Welcome to MyIdentity. The road to owning your identity is rarely easy. In this yearlong program, we will celebrate that journey and explore how the choices we make on the outside reflect what we're feeling on the inside — and the important role fashion and beauty play in helping people find and express who they are.
