What to Wear for the 2018 Holiday Season with Walmart
Shopping details for each outfit in the post below.
You probably already know that you can find so many holiday season essentials like gifts, stocking stuffers, housewares, food, and holiday decor at Walmart, but did you know that the selection online includes holiday outfits and dresses galore? Walmart has fantastic holiday looks from super-casual to red-carpet ready.
Whether your personal holiday style goal is a new pair of cozy pajamas, an eye-catching new outfit for family photos, a cute top to wear for celebrating with friends, or a formal ballgown, you will be able to find the perfect look at Walmart !
Walmart Has Your Holiday Look
Walmart has recently partnered with some amazing new brands, and made their website easier to shop! Walmart now has two main shopping sections; their well-known Everyday brands, and the new Premium offerings from their partnership with Lord & Taylor.
Walmart's Everyday section has every day low prices and is full of affordable, high-quality winter style options. If your events require more luxury, you'll love the pieces found in the Walmart premium brands from Lord & Taylor.
My first holiday look is this gorgeous green velvet style, which includes a few sale pieces!
Semi-Formal Holiday Style
All Items from Walmart.com and Walmart.com Premium Shop from Lord & Taylor. Dress: Green Velvet Off the Shoulder Sheath Dress by Vince Camuto | Earrings: Linked Cluster Teardrop Earrings from Design Lab | Bracelet: 14k Yellow Gold White Cultured Freshwater Pearl and Bead Bracelet, 7.5 | Clutch: Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock Alexandra Metal Mesh Clutch | Shoes: Womens Open-toe Pump by Brinley & Co.
This green velvet dress is such a complete classic. It's perfect for a semi-formal event, hot holiday date, cocktail party, winter wedding, or an upscale holiday office party! The best part is how affordable the whole look is. The dress is under $40 with the Lord & Taylor Friends and Family Sale!

High-Low Style Tips for the Holidays
High-low dressing is my personal approach to the holidays! It's simply mixing high-end or luxe pieces with some other wardrobe staples that maybe didn't cost so much or aren't as flashy. Mixing core pieces from the everyday brands Walmart carries, with the premium brands from Lord & Taylor is a great way to do this!
For instance, try putting a piece of fine jewelry as a gorgeous statement with a simple black shirt, or adding an inexpensive clutch to wear with a high quality top know you'll wear again, or dressing up a designer gown with costume jewelry that didn't break the bank.
The 'low' finds are also great way to experiment with trends or styles you aren't quite sure of yet before making a big investment. I am tempted to try these culotte pants for $15, or this cute striped sweater dress.
Here are a few more holiday looks to love, that show the high/low approach.
All Items from Walmart.com and Premium Brands from Lord & Taylor. Velvet Jumpsuit: Burgundy Flounce Wide Leg Jumpsuit | Earrings: Rhinestone Ring Earrings by Design Lab | Bracelet: Polished Gold Plated Mesh Stainless Steel Cuff Bracelet | Clutch: No Boundaries 'Amelia' Embellished Clutch | Sandals: Single Soled Women's Block Heel Sandals
I clearly love velvet for the holidays, but if a dress isn't your style, try this red velvet jumpsuit! I love that the flare legs and flounce top give it a slightly retro look, so I added to that 70s style with block heels, and an embellished clutch.
This is also the epitome of mixing high-low pieces, that velvet jumpsuit is perfectly priced at $59, but that fantastic clutch is a true steal - at under $8!

Holiday Ball Gown
Items from Walmart.com and Walmart Premium Brands from Lord & Taylor. Dress: Hi-Lo Satin Gown by Betsy & Adam | Earrings: X & O Handset Austrian Crystal 14kt Gold-Plated Fringe Chandelier Earrings | Bracelet: Design Lab Crystal Bracelet | Clutch: ''Alexis' Metal Mesh Clutch Gunne Sax by Jessica McClintock | Shoes: Womens Satin D'orsay Pointed Toe Bow Pumps
Is there anything more glamorous than a ball gown for the holidays? Done in this bright red satin, it's a grand style for anyone invited to a black tie event or formal ball. The best part, the gown is on sale and now under $110.
This dress hem is called "hi-low" because it's short in the front and long in the back, but it's actually also the high style element in this outfit. I styled it with some low-priced pieces like that affordable clutch, those fashion jewelry pieces, and cute bow heels that only look expensive!

Holiday Outfits for Every Winter Event!
While I always love to share looks for special occasion dressing, not every holiday event is black tie, or even dressy.

For those times, I love pieces like these!
