10 campy holiday looks: Betsey Johnson, Tipsy Elves, and more

Holidays are the best time to be a little wild. Ugly sweater parties and white elephant gift swaps are perfect opportunities to embrace kitsch and blur lines between good taste and bad taste. Celebrities have been doing it for years now— remember when Beyoncé dressed up as a Christmas tree? Or Lady Gaga’s Christmas tree costume? The point is obvious. This holiday season, get festive with 10 pieces that reflect the joy of the holiday season’s inherent camp with all its bright colors, tinsel, textures, and dazzling decorations.

Boohoo Sequin Disc Oversized Party Dress with Sequins

It is impossible to wear too many sequins in the holiday season.

Even though they might seem tacky, adding a touch of sparkle to any look is a great idea. On the other hand, this Sequin Disc Oversized Blazer Party Dress from Boohoo takes sequins to the max, giving us a holiday statement piece that’s sure to shimmer. This blazer dress is made with reflective red paillettes, which are larger and more flexible than sequins. It makes a bold statement. What we love most about this blazer dress is how attention-grabbing it is—you’ll be the talk of the holiday party. Shop women’s sizes 4 to 14.

The pants are sold separately but come in men’s pant sizes 31 to 38.

You are feeling a little bit campy, but you don’t want to buy a fully-sequined outfit. Bold accessories are the best way to bring camp to your look. And that’s certainly the case with this Kitsch Flamingo Santa Hat Crossbody from Betsey Johnson. This bag, made of glitter textile, is the standout piece of the season.

These Tiered Fringe-Tinsel Pants will make you stand out from the rest.

Tinsel is not just for Christmas trees. Nasty Gal’s Tiered Fringe Tinsel Pants are colorful, shiny and vibrant. These pants can be danced in because the fringe will move and swing every time you wear them. This silhouette is both flattering yet funky thanks to its multiple layers, which range from the high waist to the flared legs. These pants are untraditionally stylish and totally festive thanks to the variety of colors that the layers of tinsel come in. Shop in women’s sizes 0 to 14.

Jeffrey Campbell’s mules feature a perfectly gaudy feather upper.

At first glance, these Chauffeur Feather Mules from Jeffrey Campbell could be mistaken for the Grinch’s feet. But alas—in reality they’re a sensible pair of heels with a very unsensible (but utterly fabulous) spray of feathers on top. The feathery front spills onto your floor and almost looks like a slipper. The shoe comes in two other colors. While the purple is still festive and can be worn with any outfit, the brown is more subtle. Shop these in women’s half and whole sizes 6 to 10.

These cocktail earrings will keep the party going all night with your guests.

BaubleBar’s Holiday Spirit Earrings are a wonderful accessory to your holiday outfits. Featuring a bejeweled martini glass filled with ice and some olives, they’re big enough to be noticeable but not too heavy on the earlobe. If you’re keeping your holiday outfit simple this year, add these glimmering earrings for a little pop of sparkle and a big dose of fun. It’s a nice touch to add a red bow.
