There's plenty to love about the winter fashion season. Many women find it a challenge, though, to come up with different outfits for all the festive events on their calendars, from the office holiday party to tree-trimming parties, buffet events, holiday cocktails with friends, group dates, and New Year's Eve. We've got you covered in style for all your winter occasions, with our go-to guide to cute casual party outfits that will work for all your festive occasions.

Dinner Party Outfit

Dining at home with friends this holiday season? When you're heading to someone's house for dinner, your outfit needs to be comfortable enough to sit around in, but polished enough to show you made an effort. Plus, keep in mind that, when you are seated at the table, it's mostly your top that will be on display. We recommend dressing for comfort and style in an easy pair of cropped straight leg jeans, paired with a lush velvet top that feels holiday ready. Accessorize this casual party look with cute earrings or a brightly colored ring, and pretty flats or platform heels.

Creative Office Party Outfit

If you work in a casual or creative office, here's how to stand out from your dress-wearing colleagues at the holiday office party this season. Metallic, slim-fitting jeans strike the perfect balance between dressed up and dressed down, and their sparkle feels just right for the most wonderful time of year. Meanwhile, a leopard print blouse adds sophistication, for a super stylish head to toe outfit. You could wear velvet loafers with this outfit, but we'd probably add high heel shoes in metallic or nude, for a grown-up look.

Sophisticated Office Party Outfit

If you typically wear blazers or suits to the office, show them your fashion savvy side in luxurious separates that fit to a tee. A festive and office-party appropriate velvet jacket in navy blue is an inspired topper for a simple black top and dark wash, slim-fitting jeans. A crystal-encrusted watch and sparkly earrings would be perfect accessories for this streamlined holiday office party outfit.

Tree Trimming Party

Tree trimming parties are all about having festive fun with friends at home. You'll look adorably fashionable for drinking eggnog and stringing popcorn in skinny black jeans — choose a pair with plenty of stretch, for a leggings-like feel that's super comfy for sitting around the tree. Match these with a sweater in a seasonal color, and touchable texture, such as this cute fuzzy green version from fashion retailer Zara.

Dinner Date

When you have a hot date planned on a cold winter night, you need an outfit that's covered enough for warmth, while still showing off your best assets. We like the combination of a trendy sheer top (wear a camisole underneath, if needed) with a figure hugging pair of high waisted jeans that show off your curves. Keep the cold at bay between the car and restaurant,, with a leather moto jacket, or a fitted black blazer, depending on your fashion vibe. Accessorize with hoop earrings, a pretty clutch purse to hold your essentials, and your most fabulous shoes.

Girls' Night Out

Getting together with your girlfriends this holiday season? Whether you're meeting for cocktails, dinner out, or going out dancing, you'll want to put some effort into your look. For an easy outfit that will impress your fashionable friends — plus help you stand out from the pack — start with a sparkly pair of jeans that fit your body perfectly. Top with a soft, slouchy blouse, tucking it in at the waist to show off your shape. A look this shiny doesn't require much accessorizing, so a delicate pendant necklace, or a simple bracelet or two, is all you need for jewelry. Finish your look with your favorite dancing shoes, and a neutral colored clutch.

Sometimes, it's nice to take advantage of time off at the holidays to book casual get togethers with friends. If you're going out casually with your group this holiday season, this chic and simple outfit will get you there in style. You'll never go wrong with a pair of slim coated jeans, a classic striped sweater, and animal print booties.

Casual New Year's Party Outfit

Dressing for a casual New Year's Eve party means choosing an outfit that got some glamour, but is also comfy enough for eating, drinking, and lounging late into the night. We like the ease of a sequined top for injecting some specialness into your look (this one is by the Kendall + Kylie brand). Match your going out top with trendy straight leg jeans, which are super forgiving when you hit the buffet hard. Add a major ring or two, and slip your feet into comfy flat shoes, such as velvet loafers or furry slides, that you can dance in all night long.

House Party

Strike the right notes of comfort and style for casual winter house parties in unfussy separates that are stylish, easy to wear, and touch on current trends. That black going out top you've worn a dozen times will suddenly look new again, when you pair it with winter's essential flare jean silhouette. Add a sparkly belt and a cute pair of low heels, and you're all set to get the party started. A black leather jacket, or a cozy faux fur coat, would be a great topper for this outfit.

Cocktail Party

Going out for cocktails? Create an effortlessly chic outfit by matching a festive red velvet blazer with figure-flattering skinny jeans and go-to ankle boots. You can choose a longer jacket to cover your hips, if you prefer, or opt for a cropped version to show off your lower body. Add fabulous accessories near your face to bring attention upward, and balance your overall look. Try sparkly chandelier earrings, a pendant necklace or a glittering, skinny scarf looped multiple times around the neck.​
