Come November 1, you’ll find party dresses as far as the eye can see—at the mall, in the new-arrivals section of your fave e-comm site, in countless targeted posts on Instagram…. It’s a very predictable cycle: You buy, you wear, you’re photographed in it, you decide you no longer need it, you repeat. That’s why the appeal of the holiday suit grows stronger with each passing year—a versatile and timeless outfit you can style in many different ways and wear beyond the party circuit.
Blake Lively knows it. Vanessa Hudgens knows it. Her Royal Highness Meghan Markle knows it. And you too can know the wonders of a festive, party-ready suit. Check out 20 two-pieces to wear this holiday season and long after, ahead.
