I am so excited that December is finally here. Today I plan to take my Christmas tree out. My favorite activities in December include decorating the tree, watching Christmas movies and playing Christmas songs (OK, and doing Christmas shopping, too ; ) December also means celebration, whether you celebrate it at church or with family and friends, you need to look good and feel good. For that, I am here to assist you. Today I’ll be talking about Holiday Party Looks. That’s right ladies, I have found 4 different and amazing looks for everyone. Classic, sexy, sweet or classy, I got them all covered. Hope they give you some real good dress-up ideas. Enjoy!

Holiday Party Looks Chic City Girl

If you consider little black dress is your style, then you are definitely in the City Girl category. I personally think this look is simple but very elegant. For this look book, I take Rebecca Taylor’s satin dress (US$425) because I think it’s full of fun & glamor, then I match it with Mango’s hot clutch bag (US$89.90), along with unique soles from Charlotte Olympia (US$805) to brush up your dolly look. As for the final touch up, I have this unique necklace from House of Harlow 1960 (US$132) and sexy mysterious red for your lips from Yves Saint Laurent (US$34).

Holiday Party Looks The Little Sweetheart

From sexy city girl, we move to a more subtle and sweet looking, the Little Sweetheart! When you feel romantic and girly, then you can consider having this look for your party. This lovely little dress from Notte by Marchesa (US$695) is so pretty you will look like a doll in it. Now we just need to put you in pale pink heels, like this pair from Calvin Klein (US$37.25), then we match them with a little crossbody/clutch bag from Big Buddha (US$49.99). Of course that’s not all, we need to add a bit more bling, that’s when this set from Dorothy Perkins come along, a stunning crystal chiffon set (US$27). Last but not least, we gotta powder you up with this luxurious pressed palette from Guerlain (US$67).

Holiday Party Looks Vintage Darling

Seen a lot of old movies lately and got inspired by them? Then you’re bound to be the Vintage Darling. This classic “oldie” look is so astonishing I have a good time mixing and matching. I found this adorable cotton dress from Vivienne Westwood (US$710), then I was taken to this charming little bag from Milly (US$265), isn’t it just adorable? Next, I figured I need to find Mary Jane shoes to complete this whole vintage vibe, therefore I found this suede pair from Topshop (US$136). And then, I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great if I could also include one of the most fashionable cities in the world to represent this classy look? So I was browsing for some options and my choice goes to this exquisite vintage cuff from Evocateur (US$298), it’s so perfect! And finally, I closed my finding with a must-have liquid liner from MAC (US$17.50) because when you wanna go back in time, you’re gonna need a lot of black liner to define your sexy peepers! : )

Holiday Party Looks The Runway Diva

Finally, we have the Runway Diva for those who never want to get out of style, who worship glamor and never missed any runway shows. This particular look is full of feminine flavors, from the stunning floral dress from Tibi (US$570), the adorable bow clutch from See by Chloe (US$360) and the sexy fishnet shoes from Martinez Valero (US$76.99). These 3 elements are enough to give you the high-profile look, but how about we add a bit more color and glam? Like a pair of bow & pearl earrings from Juicy Couture (US$48) and a brush of  Dior’s flashing red nail lacquer (US$22). Now that your diva look is completed, you are welcome to show it off!

So what do you think ladies, which look would you go for? : )
