There are some things that you are glad happen every holiday season. You love binge-watching all of your favorite Christmas movies, making delicious cookies and receiving some spectacular gifts. Another thing you can expect every year is to attend a slew of holiday parties. Between friends, family, work and everyone in between, your December calendar is full. The parties can become a bit monotonous but that doesn’t mean your outfit should. Everyone wears the same old sequin party dress, but why not try something different? Try ditching the dress entirely and go for a something else. There are lots of party-ready pieces from jumpsuits to rompers to fancy jackets and pants.
Check out 12 party pieces that aren’t your standard dress:
Just because it isn’t summer, it doesn’t mean that you have to put your rompers away. This white one with eyelash lace trim will get you into the party spirit. If you’re worried abut being cold, pair it with tights and faux fur jacket.
Coordinates may involve a bit more effort getting dressed, but they are just as easy to pull off as any dress. This Aztec print is a great alternative to sequins.
Capes are great for dressing up outfits but some of them can be tricky to dance in. This cape top is the solution. The trendy crop top style has ruffled sleeves with a cape covering on the back.
This is the trendy 2015 way to do a jumpsuit. Instead of the traditional wide-leg pants, this one has cropped culottes. It is also made out of a glitter knit, so it is festive and comfortable.
Who says that you can’t have a party-perfect pair of pants? (Try saying that five times fast.) These wide-leg trousers are made out of a shimmery black and gold fabric that picks up the light. It’s up to you if you want to wear them with the coordinating top.

This is how you do festive without wearing a ridiculous Christmas sweater. The deep green color is perfect for the holiday party season but the tailored fit with flutter sleeves shows you haven’t forgotten about style.
A skirt is basically the same thing as a dress but you need something to layer with it. However, this tutu skirt will turn more heads than any dress. Everyone has to have at least one Carrie Bradshaw moment.
If a skirt is still too obvious of an option for you, how about a pair of shorts? These brocade shorts might be small but they make a big statement thanks to the shimmering green, printed fabric.
Here’s your proof that the culotte jumpsuit is becoming more and more popular. This strapless version is great for showing off a statement necklace.
When you first look at this, you might think that it is a dress. It is actually a jumpsuit with cropped pants. You do not need to worry about much accessorizing. Keep your jewelry to a minimum to let the fabric shine.
Jackets aren’t just for work. You would never call this cropped sequin jacket dowdy, especially when it is paired with the matching short shorts.
If you are the type of person who is always cold, try a fancy jacket. This one is made out of a multicolored jacquard with metallic threading detail. You can pair it with your leather trousers or the coordinating pants.
