Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper's 2018  holiday party outfit ideas
Dresses not your thing? Temps too frigid for bare legs? Or maybe you're a fan of comfort and free range of motion. Whatever your reasoning, you do NOT need to rock a dress to feel festive and feminine — but you didn't need me to tell you that, did you? ;)

Switch up your party style this season with sleek trousers, formal track pants, elevated denim, or all of the above! I've been feeling more comfortable than ever lately in pants, and I love how this polished holiday look fuses sporty and traditional. To tie it all together, I weaved hints of white throughout. And I mean, how fabulous are these crisp white boots?

This is the first polo I've owned in a while, and I absolutely love it. Blair Eadie of Atlantic Pacific really nailed it, and she ended up designing a charming top that's just as versatile as it is chic. ...I've already worn it twice this week!

[top: Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen via Nordstrom // pants: Ann Taylor (I also like this pair) // blazer: Zara (similar one here) // boots: Nic + Zoe (almost sold out, but I also like this pair) // purse: Michael Kors (I also like this one) // earrings: J.Crew // lip color: Nars Manic Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set in "Spike"]

As my social calendar's been filling up with parties and events, I've had to get more creative in my outfits than simply slapping on a dress and calling it an evening. I love how this outfit is subtly festive (hello emerald green blazer and pearl buttons) and easily fits in no matter the occasion. 

This past weekend, I wore this look to a holiday wine tasting party, and not only did I feel stylish and confident, but I was as comfy as can be! Pants, you're the real holiday MVP 👌
