In our endless quests to find the perfect holiday dress, many of us overlook an equally festive, equally necessary staple: the holiday jumpsuit. Holiday jumpsuits are, of course, just as sparkly, chic, and sophisticated as holiday dresses—not to mention a lot more comfortable and easier to move around in.

That this veritable seasonal must-have goes unregarded time and time again is nothing short of a tragedy—but it’s one we still have time to rectify. The holidays are only beginning, giving us plenty of time to stock up on holiday jumpsuits in every style and silhouette, and to sport them on every festive occasion that remains before the year’s end.

The beauty of this season’s holiday jumpsuit selection is that it’s vast, varied, and not at all holiday-exclusive. A sparkly black jumpsuit with puffy transparent sleeves is the kind of thing you can whip out for any party, dinner, or special event. That elegant blue velvet jumpsuit is as much a fit for your annual Hanukkah party as it is for New Year’s Eve. And some of the flouncier black jumpsuits on offer are low-key enough to sport on the daily (or at least, to some of the more casual shindigs on your calendar).

The truth is simple: Warmth, versatility, comfort, and chic style abound in the holiday jumpsuit genre—often all at the same damn time. So bid your holiday outfit myopia adieu, and diversify your go-to clothing selection; holiday dresses aren’t the only way to do it.

Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

Classic Black

A staple black long-sleeved jumpsuit with a V-neck and belted waist is an absolute wardrobe essential. Dress it up with sparkly heels or keep it chill with your favorite booties.

Sheer Metallic

This sheer silvery jumpsuit is the perfect party look for anyone who likes to dance. The metallic shimmer makes it feel festive, but the loose silhouette is comfortable while you tear up the dance floor. Plus, it’s only $65.

Blue Velvet

I won’t lie, this one is probably my favorite. There’s just something about a jewel-toned velvet that looks oh so luxurious. This jumpsuit gets a 10/10 for me.

Jazz Age

If you prefer to party in basic black, go for a unique silhouette, like this fun halter neck style with fringy faux sash detail. This feels very ’20s-inspired, and we are celebrating the end of 2020, are we not?

Bold Pink

Don’t think you have to stick with reds and greens during the holidays, babe! An unexpected pop of pink is always, always a statement worth making. I’m also in love with this one-shoulder neckline.

Statement Sleeves

For the gal who wants to do it all, I present to you the following: this fully-sequined, wide-leg, sheer puffy organza-sleeved masterpiece. Earnestly, I ask you: what more could you need?

Gold Glitter

Would this really be a holiday jumpsuit roundup without at least one gold glitter number? Methinks not. I love how classy this Saylor silhouette is, with its high neck and sash-like detail at the waist.

Chocolate Leather

Faux leather is huuuuuge this year, and I’m a sucker for chocolatey brown over black as an unexpected, still-timeless twist. I love the cuffed straight-leg shape and the belted waist to cinch you in.

Cowl Neck

Another classic black option, this one features a sexy cowl neckline you can pair with some eye-catching jewelry for a bit of extra glitz. I’m also a fan of the faux-wrap detail around the waist.

Gunmetal Sheen

This slinky, stretchy jumpsuit is a disco queen’s dream—and prepare to be wowed, because yes, it has pockets. I’ve already ordered mine!!!

After Party

What can I say, I had to throw this one in! When the party winds down, slip out of your festive jumpsuit and into your cozy one. This Juicy Couture velour number is practically made for post-party lounging!
