Come December, our weekends start to get PACKED with holiday party after holiday party here at Bullet Blues – and we’re not just talking the boozy bashes with our college friends or the buttoned-up dinners with our BAE’s parents. There’s office parties, gift exchanges, brunches, and other various and sundry casual get-togethers that require our outfit games to be on fleek. The problem is, with so many of these cheery celebrations in our calendars, it can be hard to carve out the perfect oh, this? outfit that perfectly captures our love of the holiday spirit – using our favorite Made in USA designer denim from Bullet Blues, of course!
This blog post is dedicated to those holiday parties – the kind that don’t often get featured in glossy mags or the hottest fashion blogs. To the cocktails with co-workers, the cookies with cousins, and gift exchanges with neighbors – we salute you!
Holiday Party with Your Co-Workers: Alexa Chung
And nope, we don’t mean that lunchtime office party – we mean the after-hours affair, perhaps taking place in the coolest cocktail bar in the city, or the IT guy’s swanky city loft. A holiday party with your cool coworkers can tricky, because you want to seem casual and put-together without looking like you’re trying too hard, all while keeping it semi-work appropriate.
A chic black ensemble, a-la cool girl fashion plate, model, and writer Alexa Chung, is always classy, cool, and appropriate. Start with a trendy black turtleneck and a pair of stovepipe black skinny jeans – you’re wearing your Bullet Blues Parisien Chic Skinny Cigarette Jeans Made in USA, right? Pointy-toed patent leather booties bring a bit of edge, while a leather-accented cape keeps you cozy and lends a touch of old-Hollywood glam and mystery. A sweet peachy lip and a tan bag bring a bit of color, while a pair of starburst studs bring the bling. Just be sure not to drink too much of the red-nose punch!
Cookie Baking Holiday Party: Gigi Hadid
Everyone loves a sweet treat during the holiday, and someone’s got to make them! Whether you’re busting out the flour, sugar, and cinnamon with a gaggle of your younger cousins, your bffs from high school, or just your mom or grandma, you’ll want a cozy outfit that’s cute but won’t get in the way or keep you from rolling up your sleeves and getting a little messy.
Model Gigi Hadid’s look is perfect here – equal parts sweet, trendy, and comfy. A classic pair of blue skinny jeans made in USA like the Bullet Blues Fox Azur gets a cute boost from a cozy black and white tribal print sweater, while a denim shirt brings a trendy denim-on-denim outfit. Peep-toed booties in black leather add just a touch of edge and sexiness without being impossible to walk in, while a fringed bag brings the fun and femininity. Be sure to bring some gingersnaps home for BAE!
White Elephant Exchange Holiday Party: Olivia Palermo
White elephant holiday parties are either an absolute riot or awkward af, depending on how well you know your audience. Dressing like you’re going to bring the house down no matter what helps to lighten the mood. A cheerful, colorful, and festive outfit is what you need!
It-Girl and trendsetter Olivia Palermo is killing it in this colorful and fun look, and you can too when you pair a pair of green skinny jeans, like the Bullet Blues Doll Vert Designer Jeans, with unexpected neutrals like a creamy, sweater (extra sass from a subtle statement doesn’t hurt!) and a fuzzy fur vest. A pair of buttery brown booties bring a bit of warmth, and a colorful red scarf brings extra color. Finish the look with a glam pair of sunnies and a creamy tote, because you’re a lady – even if your white elephant gift is a sound machine that makes tuba noises.
