As much as we love the holiday season (as in, starting November 30 our playlists are exclusively Mariah Carey and you can smell the scent of pine wafting from every nook in our apartment), there’s no denying that it comes with a bit of stress. As if securing the pitch-perfect list of curated gifts isn’t overwhelming enough, holiday party dress codes can be a headache to navigate. Luckily, with a little inspiration and the teensiest bit of considered planning (which, tbh, we’ve done most of for you right here), you can consider this just another ticked-off box on your to-do list.

As for the unexpected MVP of your holiday wardrobe? This season we’ve found ourselves relying on the backbone of our day-to-day looks more than usual: denim. Specifically pieces from Warp+Weft’s range of sustainable (did you know conventional denim can require 1,800 gallons of water to create just one pair? W+W’s requires a whopping 95% less) and size-inclusive jeans. While in the past jean shopping may have been right up there with Brazilian waxes in terms of enjoyable activities, the brand’s wide range of sizes, incredibly flattering cuts, and figure-hugging fabrics make it, dare we say...enjoyable? The variety of cuts and fabric finishes also means there are options for even the dressier moments on your calendar. We told you this would be a cinch.

 

While quality time over the holidays spent with fam more often than not calls for tacky sweaters or the tattered sweats you’ve been sporting since high school, eventually you may have to join the real world and put on actual clothing. Enter our top choice for looking perfectly pulled together with approximately zero effort: a coordinating look. This Warp+Weft corduroy-feel cinnamon-hued denim skirt set is just the ticket. Add a cozy, neutral sweater underneath (this Chloé number’s on sale!), then add a punchy color with your accessories: a fun blue mini bag, and playful printed ankle boots.

 

Of course you don’t realize until the day before you’re due to leave for family festivities that you need approximately 51,902 essential items before you set foot on a plane. Enter the ideal errand-running outfit: a simple, stylish jumpsuit that you can frantically run around the city in (we speak from experience—pockets are key here). Dress it up with a pair of metallic cowboy-style boots you can stomp all over town in, comfortably. Statement earrings means everyone will ignore your two-day hair topknot (speaking of, there’s a fancy scrunchie for that). A quilted leather backpack helps keep your sh*t together on the go—literally and figuratively.

 

Head-to-toe navy is equal parts polished and celebratory, without resorting to boring old black. Mixing rich textures amplifies the holiday feel: sleek, shiny satin, plus lush velvet. Statement-making accessories punctuate the whole thing; white mules keep the look feeling elevated, and can you think of anything more festive than a sequinned tiger-stripe clutch? This bag is the party.

 

One of our favorite holiday gatherings is, without fail, a gift exchange with friends and family over a boozy brunch. A boldly printed voluminous blouse adds drama and a dressy feel (in other words, gives the effect of concerted effort, even when you didnt try). A pair of high-rise wide-leg dark denim goes with everything and often ends up looking more pulled-together than classic blues. Cool cream boots with embossed texture and a shiny little block heel lend some lift without the potential for a stumble after you imbibe, while a faux fur still looks (and feels!) luxe and is incredibly comfy, too.
