Here are seven dazzling French Holiday party outfits you can copy! It’s almost the holiday season, and probably brunches, dinner gatherings, and after-dark soirées are already filling up your diaries. Although this year’s gatherings will be unlike previous ones, just looking around at festive outfits is always a fun thing to do. Whether this year you’ll spend some quality time with your lover, or hanging with your friends and family, here are seven French-style Holiday party outfits to get inspiration from.

The French holiday party style is all about presenting a chic and polished version of yourself, incorporating fashion pieces that differ from what you wear every day. Just be chic and elegant and avoid any too comfy style of outfit. You can, for example, swap your pair of jeans for a black pantsuit, your classic winter blazer for a chic velvet tuxedo, or just opt for a little black dress (a.k.a. “la petite robe noire”). Also, French women generally mix wardrobe staples with more festive details. Indeed, with statement accessories like an embellished clutch or a nice pair of shoes, a classic outfit is suddenly “habillé” (dressed up). Finally, don’t forget to elevate your festive outfit with a piece of jewelry and a proper holiday makeup look.

So, if you’re not afraid to step your outfit up this Holiday season, I’ve rounded up sevendazzling French-style outfit ideas to wear during Christmas, Hanukkah, or New Year’s Eve! Read on for some festive outfit inspiration.

The Little Black Dress · La Petite Robe Noire

The little black dress is the basic that French women wear for any special occasion such as a chic dinner, a night out, a cocktail party, or even a romantic date. And the perfect little black dress is the one you can wear in any special circumstances and with which you are most comfortable. This Holiday season, I’m in love with this Maje Short fitted dress (in limited edition) and this Sandro Two-tone lace dress.

The Disco Dress

The sequin dress (or “la robe à paillette”) like this Mango Scoop-back sequin dress is the perfect dress to wear to a New Year’s Eve party. There is something very vintage that recalls the Disco era in the 1970s or the Roaring Twenties.

The Black Mini Shorts

If you don’t like to wear a dress, the mini black shorts (like this ba&sh Midos tweed shorts) is a great party outfit option. For a more polished look prefer velvet, corduroy, or tweed mini shorts and, like Camille Charriere in the photo, opt for sheer tights. Also, you can wear your favorite shorts with a nice shirt like this Hommegirls cotton-poplin shirt and a pair of black suede sandals with heels.

The Tweed Jacket

This winter season, I’m in love with tweed jackets à la Chanel like this beautiful Mango check tweed jacket and this Sandro tweed tailored jacket. You can wear it with a black pantsuit, a white top, and a pair of black heels.

The Black Tuxedo Jacket

The tuxedo suit is always a very elegant alternative to the classic black dress. And for me, the Yves Saint Laurent masculine tailoring (which dates back to 1966) is still a classic of the Parisian festive wardrobe.

The Mireille Darc Dress

If, this Holiday season, you’re looking for a more sophisticated variation of the little black dress, opt for a long black knitted backless dress reminiscent of Mireille Darc’s legendary dress in “The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe” by Yves Robert. The variations are endless, but I’ll recommend the Robe Darc by the French brand Musier (the one Anne Laure Mais is wearing in the photo).

The Black Pantsuit
