Formal Holiday Outfits Under $50.

Updated: Jan 19, 2019

I feel like every year when I'm attending a holiday party, I end up wearing the same sort of red or black dress. This year, I thought I'd try to think of festive outfits outside of these staple colors. There's so much nice stuff available for such an affordable price, and it's great to mix it up a little bit during this season.


I love canary/mustard dresses/shirts/everything. They're just a shade away from gold and feel so merry. And you can accessorize with just a little bit of gold, but you really don't need to since your outfit is already so bright. This Express dress is on sale right now, and the color is just beautiful.



When I found this plum box skirt, I was kind of shocked that it was under $20.00. It looks quite high-end and lays perfectly when on. I paired it with a plain silk black tank and silver accessories, and this is definitely one of those pieces I'll be bringing out again come wedding season. I can't find this exact skirt online, but I bought it at my local Forever 21 just a few days ago, so it should still be available in-store.



Green is definitely an underutilized color when it comes to holiday apparel. This Forever 21 wrap dress has the cutest sleeves and is a lovely deep shade.  It can be somewhat revealing in the leg area if you don't tie it correctly, so I'd recommend wearing a slip underneath.




Whatever you may celebrate, have a wonderful Holiday season!  Enjoy time with your family, friends, and (hopefully) a break from work.
