Easy holiday party outfits using DIY projects!
It got me thinking about dressing for holiday parties and I put together these ideas for you--if you want to show off your DIY projects and dress for the season!
No need to stress about making up something new--you probably already have some very cool DIYs that you can make festive!
3 easy holiday party outfits (with DIY projects!)
1. Dress up a DIY graphic tee!
There are so many cool graphic tees out there and I love playing with dressing one up or down. This is one I did with my Silhouette machine, super easy iron-on vinyl lettering. It's a comfy weekend piece but works great with a blazer! This one's knit and has 3/4 length sleeves so it's not too business-ey. (Similar options here, here, and here.)
Plus boyfriend jeans and double necklaces! (Lauren Conrad for Kohl's, she has some great necklaces--similar here, here, here, and here.)
2. Wear a furry scarf (no coat needed) with a bright plaid!
I made a couple scarves with this furry scarf tutorial. I played with the proportions so some of them turned out more collar-like, like this black one below.
Paired with a Christmas-ey plaid button-down and bright skirt (this one's super nice wool from J.Crew--similar from J.Crew Factory), it's SO festive!
3. Make a summer dress or romper work for winter.
This grey romper I made is so quirky fun to wear! Glad I could make it appropriate for winter, too! You could easily do this with a summery dress, too. Would be cute with a cotton print, or stripe! (Or if you're inspired by the romper... check out this post with 10 romper pattern options and make yourself a black or sparkly one just for winter parties!!)
I paired this one with a comfy boyfriend cardigan and booties (similar here, here, and here).
See, so much you can do with things you've already made!
If you do feel like making something new, I just saw a fun round-up on Kollabora of holiday season/party project inspirations--including this wool plaid jumper and this soft plaid tunic top by yours truly!
Happy crafting, enjoying previous projects, and partying!
