The holidays will be here sooner than you think, which means holiday parties are about to start filling our calendars. And if our summer plans were any indication, this holiday season is going to be jam-packed with a bunch of different soirées. Office holiday party? Check. A gift exchange dinner with your nearest and dearest? You know it. How about your outfit for Christmas Day or Hanukkah? It’s enough to make your head spin. But luckily, you can look fresh for all your festivities—without putting a major dent in your wallet—with the help of Nordstrom Rack.

Nordstrom Rack has an ever-rotating inventory of the trendiest pieces at prices that won’t have you begging Santa for a cash infusion. (Because let’s face it, our bank accounts get enough of a workout spreading holiday cheer to our friends and family.) A quick visit to their site can net you outfits for every holiday party, whether the unspoken dress code is cozy chic or sequins and glam. 

Not sure where to start? That’s where we come in. We’ve put together inspo for four outfit options that will have you looking chic for any invite you may get. So scroll on, and then click over to Nordstrom Rack to shop for similar looks. And may your days be merry…and stylish.

The Office Holiday Party

There’s a fine line you want to walk when getting gussied up for your workplace’s holiday shindig. Sure, you want to look cute and festive. But, much like with the open bar, it’s easy to go overboard. Our advice is to go with one statement piece and build around that. A silky or sequined skirt packs a serious punch but can be made office-appropriate with a drapey, oversized blazer and tank. Keep things fun with a pair of sock booties and hoop earrings, all easily scooped up at Nordstrom Rack.

The Dinner-to-Cocktails Soirée with Friends

Your annual gift exchange with your BFFs is the time to get a little funkier with your holiday dressing. Leather pants are the ultimate social-season chameleons since they can be easily dressed up or down. A semi-sheer button-down in a festive hue keeps things on the sexy side, especially when paired with dainty, layered necklaces. Statement heels add a little something extra, too. 

The Big Family Get-Together

Whether you’re spending the holidays with your family or your partner, you want to feel more comfy than confined. While dresses are always a good standby, why not change things up a bit and opt for a jumpsuit? It’s an all-in-one outfit that requires zero fuss and is super comfortable—something you’ll be jazzed about once the dessert course comes around. From there, you just need a comfortable pair of heels and a pair of spangly earrings, to exude holiday chic. Consider this easy look a gift from you to you. 

The Romantic Night In

After all the drinks and dinners, you’re probably itching for a cozy night in with your partner. (Or just with yourself!) But that doesn’t mean it can’t be a little special. A set of silky pajamas looks adorable, and can even be worn out on the town with a pair of heels. For an evening in, a sweet pair of mules is a chic alternative to your slippers. Now turn on your favorite holiday movie and curl up. You deserve the break!

Psst, once you’re done outfitting yourself, keep Nordstrom Rack top of mind as a one-stop shop for all your gifting needs, too!
