Holiday Party Style with H&M

- Fashion, Holidays, Outfits

holiday party outfit with H&M

December is upon us, which means I have officially entered into full holiday mode – non-stop Christmas music, sparkling lights galore and getting ready for festivities ranging from work parties to holiday events with friends and family. While the joy and the cheer of the season is certainly delightful, one of the most exciting parts about the holiday season is being able to plan what I’m wearing for holiday parties!

I always start by focusing my party outfit around shades of red or green, and then add details like sparkly jewels, textures and a fabulous pair of heels. H&M has the perfect selection of bright holiday colors, sparkly jewelry, textured tights, skirts and beautiful, unique pieces.  When I spotted this bright red, cozy sweater, I thought it would be fun to dress up for a picture perfect party outfit. With a textured tweed skater skirt, lace tights and a layered, rhinestone necklace, the sweater turns from a more casual style to glam. The final details, including my bright red lip and sequin clutch, make me ready for any holiday party!

What I’m Wearing:

Red Sweater // Necklace // Skirt // Lace Tights  (all H&M!)

H&M always has the best selection of gifts at prices that I can manage to buy something for all my loved ones! I have a lot of fashionistas in my life who are looking to be stylish this holiday season, so I’ve picked out some stylish, beautiful gifts from H&M:
