Bow down. If you thought the key to killer holiday party dressing was a scene-stealing sequin party dress, think again. There’s a myriad of style essentials that can do just as much for your holiday getup (maybe even more) as a standard after hours-approved frock. Exhibit A: the bodysuit. Just as comfortable as your favorite pair of treggings, this chic onesie packs plenty of holiday #OOTD potential no matter what the occasion. Below, we’re showing you four fab ways to rock this everyday essential all season long so you can hit the party circuit in style — no effort needed.
It’s officially time to ditch the dress in favor of glitzy trousers that were made for dominating the dance floor. Between the wide-leg silhouette and glitter-flecked fabric, this high-waisted pair happens to be the perfect fit. Team ‘em with metallic ankle-strap heels for a streamlined look, then dial up the drama with a layered collar necklace and leopard faux fur coat that’s guaranteed to elicit a few ooh-la-las.

When a classy-yet-cool aesthetic is what you’re after, look no further than a twirl-worthy quicksilver skirt. Team it up with an elegant bodysuit and you have a foolproof recipe for desk-to-dinner dressing. Rock this Insta-worthy duo with platform bluchers and a minimalist watch by day, then take it there for the annual office holiday party or a swanky dinner date with shimmery sandals, colorful crystal drops and a luxe velvet box clutch.

When it comes to a GNO, you don’t mess around — and that’s whether you’re gearing up for a laid-back outing or an all-night extravaganza. Needless to say, simply slapping on an LBD just isn’t going to cut it. So what’s a burgeoning street style star to do? Play the layering game like a pro and slip your trusty bodysuit on under an ombre sequin dress for all the style points. Skip the sandals and step into a pair of gold-heeled ankle boots that will keep toesies cozy while adding edge to your overall look. After-hours perfection comes in the form of a celestial choker necklace and bold berry lip.
’Tis the season to say sayonara to snoozy suiting, because let’s be real — there’s nothing less festive than a standard black suit. Switch things up to snag best dressed at your office’s Secret Santa gift exchange by swapping out a classic button-down and pinstripe trouser combo for a bodysuit and burgundy velvet jeans (don’t worry — HR won’t know). Weave in a hint of glitz via a crystal-embellished blazer, glitzy platforms and a sparkly ear cuff FTW.
