Got a few different holiday get-togethers to hit this holiday season? We’ve got you covered with three killer looks that you won’t be afraid to tag on Facebook.

Look 1: Family Formal

Meeting the boyfriend’s family, heading to dinner at your grandparent’s, or any other semi-formal occassion calls for an outfit that is pulled-together, and appropriate, but it doesn’t mean you have to look frumpy. An embellished caridgan adds a touch of glam to a simple dress. Opaque tights are both modest and trendy, not to mention a little warmer, while accessories help add a punch of colour to this versatile ensemble.

Cardigan, tights, dress, hair clips, clutch, flats

Look 2: Festive with Friends

Got a holiday function to attend with friends, schoolmates, or co-workers? Look your best and stand out in a holiday-red dress with just enough ruffle and embellishment. Keep the rest of the outfit a little subdued with a single pallet of black to keep from being too over-the-top. You want to stand out without looking like a Christmas tree. Tights, heels, a clutch, and simple ring add some interest with different textues (like velvet, so chic this winter) and pull the look together.

 Look 3: Tacky Holiday Party

What’s the point of a tacky holiday party if you don’t go all out? With a cheesy sweater, cheap antlers, light-up accessories, and cozy touches, you’ll look like you jumped right off of some Christmas card nightmare circa 1994. Still not tacky enough for you? Go for a red nose or grinch-green face paint. Hey, it’s only the holidays one time a year, and you won’t have an excuse to dress up again until Halloween.

Antlers, leggings, slippers, sweater, pins, socks
