What to Wear to a Casual Holiday Party (Part 2!)

Pearl Sweater for a casual party // the modern savvy

Welcome to part two of the “casual going out holiday style”. Sure, fab glam dresses are fun to twirl around in and there are certainly occasions where it’s a must, but if you’re anything like me, 90% of my holiday festivities include me wearing denim…. and 50/50 that kids will be in tow.

To feel festive for a casual holiday party (especially in a warmer climate), it’s all about the details. Think lace, pearls, embellishments, rich colors like burgundy and olive green, or a little sparkle… that’s where you can easily add that holiday feel.

This sweater from H&M is the perfect example. It’s lightweight, insanely gorgeous — I mean, pearl details these days are my favorite! — and makes a statement whether I’m with the kids at a holiday house party, or going to date night with Adam. Same goes for the heels… I’m living for these pearl details and the lower block heel makes it so comfortable and easy to walk (or somewhat chase kids!) in.

By the way, if you missed the first post about casual going out holiday style, check it out here. My top is just $17. We can be twins!

    Simple and ladylike. The white sweater embellished with pearls ideally suits your figure! I like the way you team it with skinny blue jeans and pearl embellished heeled sandals. Simple and very sweet! Gucci shoulder clutch is a good addition. This outfit can be worn to home parties and casual gatherings. Nice one!
