I love a good party, who doesn’t! But what I love even more is the perfect outfit. With enough to worry about planning, prepping, chopping, decorating, dimming the lights to distract from the mess… oops how did that last one get in there? The last thing I need to worry about is what to wear. Finding a holiday hosting outfit should be easier to find than the actual hosting part!
That is where Boden comes in. I fell in love with this brand about ten years ago when I was pregnant with my first son. Have you seen their baby clothes? I die. But then I realized they have a women’s selection and it was truly game over. I was so excited to work with this iconic brand and to test out some of their party-ready styles. Boden is all about versatility and they feature pieces perfect for casual parties to all-out black-tie affairs.
But for hosting a party I have simple formula. Party pants! I find that pants allow me for easy movement, comfort and they also keep me warm. These pants specifically feel like I am wearing pajamas, so if you find me curled up in bed later in the same outfit don’t be surprised.
Holiday Hosting Outfits
These tie waist velvet pants fit true to size. I am wearing a size 2 which is comparable to a size 26. I added a gold bootie for a little bit of height. For a slightly monochromatic look I paired the pants with this classic silky tank that comes in 4 beautiful shades. The best part is that it is machine washable friendly, oh and the little back detail. I am also wearing a size 2 in the tank.
And yes, I am the type of girl who loves a good mid party outfit change. So when it’s time to settle down for a little gift giving – I popped on this shimmer cardigan that I buttoned up and wore as a top. Wearing a size 2 which is comparable to an xs.
