Although it is the season to dress up, wearing dresses in the winter can be pretty daunting and, let’s face it, uncomfortable. There is only so much that Spanx can do. Plus, pants are just so much easier in terms of movement, sitting down, and not accidentally flashing anyone during a particularly energized dance move.
So in case dresses just aren’t your thing, we’ve gathered a list of jumpsuits, pantsuits, rompers and everything in between to help you execute the ultimate holiday outfit that will get you through December, New Year’s and beyond. Avoid the last-minute outfit freak-out and scroll through our top picks.
