• How to Wear Denim to Your Holiday Parties and Still Look Fancy as Hell

Holiday party time is upon us (I have two on the same day this week so, yeah there’s that). And if you haven’t figured out what you’re wearing yet, it’s okay. We’re here to help.


Deciding the perfect outfit for your company’s party is a big part of the holiday season. Do you wear a dress and heels? Do you go business casual in a pair of trousers or try a jumpsuit? It is super casual that you can wear your favorite pair of jeans? SO MANY DECISIONS. I always opt for more dressy than casual, but that’s because I don’t really have many opportunities to dress up.

That being said, there is something about wearing a great pair of jeans that just makes you feel good on a night out. Plus, denim can easily be dressy if paired with the right top (or bottom) and accessories. Don’t count your old blues out just yet.

Here is a breakdown of 6 different ways to wear your favorite denim to your any of your holiday parties this year.
MBlack denim is SUPER easy to make dressy, mainly because you utilize them the way you would slacks. If you go skinny on the bottom, add volume with a flouncy top and longline blazer with some pattern. Don’t forget a bold lip.
