Is it too soon to start thinking of outfits for all the upcoming Christmas parties? Because we’re certainly feeling inspired—especially after seeing women like Hailee Steinfeld and Emily Blunt in the dreamiest dressed-up looks. And judging by their OOTDs, midi lengths are the way to go! Check out how these celebs wore theirs:
1. Jessica Alba
Crisp button-down shirts aren’t just for the office! Tuck it into a flowing lace skirt (in a bold color, no less) for the quickest work-to-party update possible.
2. Emily Blunt
Equal parts sexy and sophisticated, a diaphanous top works well with a full midi skirt. Perfect for when you want to look demure, but not too demure. LOL!
3. Olivia Palermo
Of course, if anything cleavage-baring just won’t work around your conservative lola or disapproving HR head, you can bare your collarbones instead in a chic off-shoulder sweater.
4. Alexa Chung
A sweet pastel midi dress is the grown-up version of those itchy chiffon dresses your mom made you wear every Christmas. Add a bit of edge by styling with sharp, architectural heels.
5. Dakota Fanning
If midi lengths totally go against your hubadera tendencies, this skin-baring option will convert you. It’s boudoir dressing done right, thanks to full-coverage hot pants and classy (not trashy) accessories.
6. Hailee Steinfeld
For the ultimate in festive dressing, you really can’t go wrong with red. Try a nipped-waist dress with matching pumps, and complete the look with pretty braided hair.
7. Olga Kurylenko
It’s one thing to show up to a party in a LBD, and it’s another to blow the competition away in a delicate ballet-inspired look. Wouldn’t you choose the latter, too?
