12 Festive Outfits For Atypical Party Girls

You prefer an old-fashioned over prosecco, soul-searching over small talk, and you can't remember the last time you "Wooo!"-ed in response to someone suggesting shots. You'd never consider yourself a "party girl," and yet, you love going to fetes. Good friends, free-flowing libations, and lots of fascinating strangers whose brains you can pick (and who you can groove to Disclosure with afterward).
For your very specific partier ways, a standard LBD and stilettos won't do. But, you want to be a little festive — it's the holidays, after all! So, we've compiled a 12-part guide to doing going-out wear that's fun, functional, and won't make you feel like a reality show star at a red-carpet event.
