A female's guide of what to wear on Christmas

The Five Levels of Christmas Party Attire

With Christmas comes the mandatory family and friend gatherings. If you’re like me and absolutely love getting ready for any kind of event, the prep to go out is almost as great as the party itself. Depending on how formal your Christmas celebrations are, there are always so many options of what you can wear for such an occasion. So, here are the five basic levels and styles to consider wearing to any Christmas party.

Completely Casual

If your Christmas plans are pretty casual, you can never go wrong with a trusty seasonal sweater, whether it be cheesy or super cute! This would be perfect for hanging out with friends for a secret Santa gift exchange.

Slightly Less Casual

This outfit could still be considered casual, but it’s definitely a bit nicer with something other than a sweater. A simple single colored top can be spiced up with an elaborate necklace as a focal point.

Comfy and Cute

Upon first glance, this outfit looks extremely warm and comfortable. It’s also pretty gorgeous too. With little effort needed, all you have to do is throw on a comfy dress, your favorite scarf, and step into some handy dandy boots. With this you get the comfort, as well as the style.


In my opinion, black tights and heels make everything classier. This is a great option to wear to something with a nicer atmosphere such as a work party or dinner with your entire extended family.

Full on Fancy!

If your family or friends go all out for Christmas dinner or a holiday party and it's usually a formal event, this would be the perfect thing to show up in. The lace top in this outfit is gorgeous and makes this look extremely festive.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
