Festive Frugal Fashion: Budget-Friendly Holiday Party Looks

Posted on 12/05/2013

Holiday parties are one of the best things about this time of year. The food is yummy, the conversations are entertaining and it's a great excuse to buy a new outfit. But just because you're spending all of your money these days on gifts doesn't mean you need to recycle last year's holiday party outfit. Check out these affordable frocks.

A Sweet Sweater
For holiday open houses or cookie swaps a holiday sweater makes a great choice. The Sequin Robins Sweater featuring two friendly birds is adorable. It's $45.35 at Asos.com and this week when you use coupon code MOREMOREMORE you'll save 30 percent. For guys there's a bunch of fun holiday sweaters including this red one with a vintage reindeer design. It's $47.19.

Something Red
Red always makes for a great Christmas party color. This faux-wrap dress is work-party appropriate and on sale for $59.50 at victoriassecret.com. Guys can add a pop of garnet to their holiday attire with the Skinny Knit Tie, $39.50 at Nordstrom.com.

Sparkle and Shine
Don't let your Christmas tree steal all the sparkle. Sequins are a great way to turn a typical party outfit into something holiday-worthy. The Sequin Embellished Mini Skirt at Express.com is currently 40 percent off, marked down to just $35.94. Plus right now you can save $25 off every $75 you spend with promo code 9597.

Go Mad for Plaid
Red plaid can be paired with something sleek for a dressy look or jeans for a more laid back style. The men's Polo Ralph Lauren Plaid Twill Workshirt is on sale for $78.40 at Bloomingdales.com. The female version features buttoned tabs at the elbows so you can roll up your sleeves. It's marked down to only $46.99 at Bloomingdales.

Gold for the Holidays
While you can't wear it every season, gold goes well in December. Slip on Women's Glittery Textured Ballet Flats, on sale for $21.50 at OldNavy.com or go a little wild with the Rockstar Metallic Coated Jeans, $20 at OldNavy.com. Adding some metallic to your outfit transforms it into something special for the season.
