We are absolutely in love with all of the fun fabric textures for the season. We’re seeing velvet, crushed velvet, faux fur and teddy bear fur, but our favorite is all of the glitter and metallic. These high-shine styles definitely make a statement, so if you’re looking for holiday party outfit ideas, they’re the perfect solution! Check out our favorite ways to style the metallic trend so that you aren’t scrambling at the last minute.
A dress is a go-to choice, so we paired these metallic shift dresses with moto jackets and shoes to match. Throw on a pair of tights and you are NYE-ready. If you really want to be bold, you can swap out the moto jacket for faux fur!
When In Doubt, Add Layers
Layering a tank dress over a metallic tee or blouse is great if you want to add a fun pop of metallic without going for the head to toe look. When coming up with party outfit ideas, 90s vibes are a must!
Rose-Colored Party Outfit Ideas
For something a little more subtle but still way cute, start with a wear-everywhere black velvet dress. Then, start piling on fun accent pieces like this gorgeous rose-gold moto jacket, a mini teddy bear fur backpack and a beret. Ooh la la!
We decided to pair this gold metallic shift dress with some matching statement booties and a beret for a look that is sure to turn heads this holiday season.
And the Outfit of the Year Goes To…
This statement look is my personal favorite. With a sheer glitter star top, wide leg metallic pants and fun gold accessories, it’s perfect for New Year’s Eve. You’ll definitely be the life of the party!
The Perfect Pants
Speaking of pants… here are a couple more fun party outfit ideas – one with statement pants and a basic black velvet mock neck tee and the other with black velvet bell bottoms and a sheer blouse with just a hint of glitter. You won’t have any trouble getting down and groovy in these looks!
Ready to Rock
Just hitting the streets with your besties for a casual night out? Pair a metallic bodysuit with some high rise leather shorts and finish the look off with a great pair of statement earrings. This look has some serious edge.
A fun black velvet skirt makes the perfect base to pair any tee or blouse with, which is perfect because statement tops and sleeve details are all the rage right now. This is a must-have wardrobe staple this year, whether you’re coming up with party outfit ideas or just looking for something to wear to work tomorrow!
And last but not least, if you don’t want to commit to the metallic trend but you still want to add some glitz and glam, try spicing your outfit up with a few fun accessories like a high-shine booties or statement earrings!
