It's easy to just put on a tuxedo and call it a day...for the holidays. But, we're more about dressing up unconventionally during Christmas. Whether you're going to a formal dinner or a casual function, here are the best ideas for Christmas party outfits this season.

'Tis the season to wear velvet. No, really. On any other occasion, velvet would be out of place. During the holidays, however, it's festive and appropriate. You can tone it down or amp it up by either choosing a white shirt or something crazy and printed.

Nothing says Christmas like a cozy sweater, preferably one with a shawl collar. All you need to make it party-ready is a good shirt. And, if you need to be more dressed up, a tie for good measure. The best about this style sweater is that you can easily take it off if it gets too warm—something perfect for our country.

Corduroy is a fall fabric, but here, we don't really have seasons. That said, it still brings a holiday feel to a look. This pair of corduroy trousers from H&M is no-nonsense. It features a regular waist, straight legs, and standard trouser details at a price that can't be beat.

Another option to dress things up without all the effort? A great pair of loafers. Like it or not, this was the year of the horsebit loafer. You could, of course, choose a more subtle shoe but Gucci's version just adds much-needed flair that you can't get anywhere else.

We're going more casual now. For a simple dinner with friends, an overshirt will do. It pairs well with just about everything, and it definitely works all year round. Sure, it's not very festive but themed dressing isn't for everyone.

Thanks to brands like Bode, Loewe, and Comme des Garcons, patchwork is in full throttle. Get into it with this shirt from Holiday Boileau which isn't quite as loud as red and green but it's definitely more stylish.

Instead of wreaths, we have palm trees. So, why not celebrate Christmas with one embroidered on your shirt?

Seeing a pattern here? Opt out of sleek blacks, bright reds, and murky greens to rock a full brown palette for the holidays. It's a lot more unexpected and fun. (But only as long as your Christmas is casual.)

If you're wearing something crazy on the top, don't just pair it with a dull pair of black, modest shoes. You might as well play with contrast. These Loewe loafers will do the trick.
