The Best 50 Christmas Outfit Ideas

Emerald Sequin Dress

We have to start off with a showstopper. This dress looks like it belongs in a Christmas movie and it is one of those classic holiday fashion must-haves that every girl needs in her closet. Paired with some simple heels, it’s an easy and stylish outfit.

As a bonus, it comes in gold as well, in case green isn’t your fave.

Embellished Sweater Outfit

I love a good embellished sweater for the holidays — it’s instantly glam but still so cozy and easy to throw on. Pair this one with a velvet skirt for a sweet holiday feel.

Seriously, this outfit is so simple yet it looks like you spent a lot of time on it. The perfect Christmas outfit in my book.

Leather Skirt & Sweater Outfit

This outfit makes you look like you have your life together, plain and simple. It’s so polished and cool thanks to its neutral tones and mix of textures. It definitely looks 10x more expensive than it is.

As a bonus, you could wear all of these pieces again and again, so this outfit is a great investment.

Long-Sleeved Sequin Dress Outfit

Here’s a more modest take on the sequin mini dress for the holidays.

This one incorporates long sleeves and a pretty wrap detail for a dress you’ll wear again and again. The dress speaks for itself so you don’t need a ton of styling. Add your favorite strappy pumps and do your hair up big.

Pink Velvet Dress Outfit

I love an unexpected pink dress for a holiday party. This one is totally winter appropriate thanks to its long sleeves and velvet fabric. So easy to throw on with your favorite pair of metallic heels and a pretty clutch!

Bold Red Pants Outfit

This casual Christmas outfit is such a vibe! It combines some statement bright red flares with a slouchy tee and moto jacket for a downtown, cool girl feel.

This outfit would be amazing for Christmas Eve drinks with your friends from home.

Grinch Inspired Monochrome Christmas Outfit

This outfit has Grinch vibes in the best possible way.

I love the idea of a monochrome look for the holidays. This one incorporates a light green mini dress with a darker green leather blazer for a cool hint of contrast. Add army green ankle boots and your favorite bag (ideally in green), and you’re good to go.

Holiday Party Outfit with Jeans

Products: Top, Jeans, Heels, Bag, Earrings

This next look is casual with a dressy twist. I built this outfit around these 90’s-inspired, high-rise straight leg jeans that have distressing and a faded light wash. I love Abercrombie denim because they have a wide range of inclusive sizes and lengths. They have extra short, short, regular, and long, and sizes 23-37 W.

I styled the jeans with this silky white tank with crystal detailing. For shoes, these heels from Lulu’s are everything. They are nude with a crystal-embellished strap. They complete the look and can be styled in so many ways.

For accessories, I added this beaded silver bag and some sparkly chandelier earrings.

Red Sequin Jumpsuit

It does NOT get cooler than a red sequined jumpsuit for your next formal holiday party. This one is an absolute stunner!

As with other sequined pieces, this one doesn’t need much styling at all. Add barely-there heels and walk in like you own the place.

Pearl-Embellished Mini Dress

This black velvet mini dress with pearl detailing gives me Balmain vibes — and I’m definitely not mad about it!

Pearls are a huge trend this year and they are so fresh and unexpected on a dress like this. I love how the outfit includes trendy white boots, too, for a very of-the-moment feel.

More Subtle Velvet Mini Dress Outfit

Here’s another velvet dress look. This one has a v-neck lapel collar, long sleeves, front ruching, and button detailing. The fun twist on this LBD is the metallic thread running throughout the dress. It adds some sparkle and shine!

The red heels have a platform so they are super comfortable to walk (or dance!) in all night. I love how the red pops against the black dress.

For accessories, I added these super fun rainbow statement earrings. Style your hair in a sleek high pony to really show off the earrings and the neckline of the dress.

Classy Outfit

There is something so classy about an all black outfit with a pop of leopard print.

This simple look from Lulus consists of black skinny pants, heeled ankle boots, a black turtleneck sweater, and the statement piece — a bold leopard coat. The combo looks so grown up and chic, perfect for all but the most formal Christmas occasions.

Casual Outfit

This is such a cute casual Christmas outfit, perfect for running last-minute errands or having a cozy board game night with friends. It gets its Christmassy vibe from the green plaid pants (a huge trend right now) and the cozy sweater.

Finish the outfit off with chunky black oxfords (another huge trend) and your favorite shopping tote.

Christmas Dress

Technically, any of the dresses in this post can be considered Christmas dresses. That being said, this one has all of the classic Christmas vibes.

This dress is made of emerald green satin (so classic for formal events), and everything from the fit and flare shape to the ruffle sleeve detailing screams “holiday party.” Plus, the bow in the middle definitely reminds me of a present. This dress is Christmassy without being even the slightest bit cheesy.

Cute Christmas Outfit

How cute is this Christmas outfit with sequin pants? I never would have thought to put these pieces together but they look amazing combined.

This outfit really works thanks to the all-neutral color palette. This is a great fashion trick to try over the holidays, since it makes any outfit look a lot more expensive.

Midi Dress + Boots Outfit

In fall and winter, you absolutely can’t go wrong with a midi dress and ankle boots. This combo works for so many occasions and it’s an easy go-to formula.

This pretty printed dress from Lulus looks stunning with edgy black ankle boots and a black bag. This outfit will turn heads but is still casual enough to be worn just about anywhere.

For Attending Mass – Cute Church Outfit

Here’s a pretty and festive outfit you could wear to attend mass for Christmas. It doesn’t stick to the traditional Christmas colors, but it still feels seasonally appropriate thanks to its mix of velvet and lace.

The high-neck of the blouse is church-appropriate, and you could always swap in a longer skirt if you wanted to make this one more modest.

Flannel Shacket Outfit

The shacket is such a huge trend this year and for a casual Christmas event, you can’t go wrong with a shacket, leather leggings, and a black top. So simple, so easy, and surprisingly chic.

Simple outfit

A cami and some leather pants is a party go-to any time of year, but it’s especially great for the holidays when you want to be a little bit edgy for a night out.

This is another example of an outfit you could wear again and again, so all of the pieces would make great investments.

Red Dress Outfit

Christmas party outfit 1 - red one-shoulder sequin dress with shoulder cutout, gold hoop earrings, beige shoulder purse, platform beige chunky heels
Products: Dress, Heels, Bag, Earrings

This sequin dress outfit screams Christmas and is perfect for any girl who loves to dress up! This dress features an asymmetric neckline with cutout detailing. There is a hidden in-seam side zipper for easy dressing, too.

I paired it with some chunky nude heels, a mini shoulder bag, and some gold fun-shaped hoops. I kept the accessories neutral to make sure the dress was the main focus.

If you get cold, you can throw over an oversized leather jacket or a black blazer for layering.

Trendy Outfit for the Holidays

This next outfit is edgy and chic! This sparkly red tank has a flattering draped neckline and adjustable spaghetti straps that cross at the back.

I paired it with these amazing wide-leg faux leather pants. They feature a relaxed fit on the legs and sit high on the waist, making them universally flattering. The exaggerated pant leg makes your legs look so long while also accentuating the waistline.

For shoes, I added these patent black heeled booties. The patent style dresses up the look and complements the leather pants.

I finished off the look with these bold red star earrings; perfect for the holidays.

Cool Outfit

This outfit would be perfect for a casual get-together with friends or family around the holidays. It’s one part preppy and put-together, and one part casual-cool. Plus, it incorporates pieces you probably already own!

Sparkly Party Outfit with Boots

long sleeve deep v-neck silver sequin top, baggy straight leg jeans, white platform ankle booties, red hooop earrings
Products: Top, Jeans, Booties, Earrings

This look styles this shimmery, sparkle top from Zara’s holiday collection. It is long-sleeve so if you’re going out to the bars, it will keep you warm when you’re outside. The twist detail on the front is really flattering too.

I paired some black denim jeans with the top to dress it down a little. Then I finished off the look with some heeled white booties and some sparkly red hoops; both perfect for a Christmas party outfit and also super festive.

Bright & Bold Christmas Outfit

If you want to go bold at your next holiday party, this is the outfit for you!

It’s very trendy and 2000s-inspired, with its wide leg green pants and chunky heeled combat boots. Mix in a patterned crop top and a mini bag and you have a super trendy Christmas look.

Red Blazer Outfit

Christmas party outfit 5 - black bodycon LBD, red oversized blazer, sequin knee-high boots, hoop earrings
Products: Dress, Blazer, Boots, Earrings

This next outfit is more dressy and a total statement look! I started with this showstopping little black dress. A LBD is a statement piece to have in your closet and can be styled so many ways.

This one is a mini dress with ribbed material and shoulder ties. It has a straight neckline and a slit detail up the leg.

I paired it with this bright red oversized blazer to add some festive colors to this Christmas party outfit. The main statement though is this pair of jaw-dropping boots! They are over-the-knee sparkly silver-heeled booties. They really complete the look and I only hope that Santa will bring me a pair.

I finished off the outfit with some faux gem oversized hoop earrings. They are also super sparkly!

Minimalist Christmas Party Outfit

This formal Christmas party outfit is stunning yet incredibly minimal. It’s just a gorgeous satin slip dress and a pair of barely-there heels. Add a small, glittery bag if you want, or not. Some simple, thin jewelry would finish off this gorgeous formal look.

Patterned Ankle Boots Outfit

Here’s another cool and super casual outfit idea for Christmas shopping, hot cocoa dates, or dinner at home with your family. Nothing super fancy but still super cute. The best part is, you probably have all of these pieces (or close) in your closet already!

Red Boots Outfit

Here’s another outfit that styles an LBD. This dress is one-shoulder and has a trendy cut-out detail on the side.

I paired it with some croc-print heeled red booties. These are so cool and unique, plus the color pops when paired with a simple black dress.

I added some sheer black tights, gold statement earrings, and this adorable sparkle headband! I love that headbands are back in style! It finishes off the outfit and adds a girly vibe.

2000s-Inspired Outfit

This cool girl Christmas outfit is giving all the Y2K vibes! It’s definitely not for the timid — this is a fashion girl pick for the holiday season.

Trouser pants have been trending everywhere this year, and I love them in emerald green. Pair with trendy white boots and a daring crop top, then attend the coolest Xmas party in town.

Crop Top and Shorts Outfit

Christmas party outfit 7 - sequin black shorts, velvet bra top, white patent heeled tall boots, red purse
Products: Top, Shorts, Bag, Headband, Boots

This next outfit is totally my vibe and something I would wear for a Christmas party! I love the trend of sequin or sparkly shorts. This pair is high-waisted, a bit flowy, and covered in sequins.

I paired the sparkly shorts with this structured velvet top. This tank is beautiful and would also look super cool with a pair of light wash jeans.

For shoes, knee high white boots have been popular this past year and I love the look of white worn in winter. These boots have a comfortable chunky block heel.

For accessories, I added this faux pearl and studded velvet black headband and a red nylon bag that comes in a variety of colors.

Wide Leg Pants and Blazer Outfit

Products: Set, Blazer, Heels, Earrings, Bag

This look styles this drool-worthy matching set. This is the famous Huxley set in black, but it also comes in four other colors. I own this set and am absolutely in love with it. There are so many different ways to style it and wear it, including wearing each piece separately!

It comes with a little cropped black tank and matching high-waisted wide leg trousers. I paired it with this faux leather red blazer.

For shoes, these satin champagne ankle-strap heels are a dream. They look great with the pants and really dress up the look. I added some mini silver hoops and this glittery tequila purse, which is the perfect size for going out.

Classic Plaid Skirt Outfit

The plaid skirt is a holiday season classic, so it’s only right that we include it on our list of the best Christmas outfits.

This black and white outfit is so classic and classy — it would look at home at any holiday event. My favorite part is the statement-making coat, which looks a lot more expensive than it is.

Edgy Plaid Skirt Outfit

Here’s an edgier take on the plaid skirt that would be perfect for Christmas get-togethers with friends or casual Xmas parties.

The plaid mini skirt and cropped sweater combo has a definite ’90s fashion feel, made even more so by the grunge-inspired combat boots. Add some smudgy eyeliner if you want extra edge.

Red Sweater Vest Outfit

This outfit styles a red sweater vest. Layering is great for winter and I love the look of sweater vests layered over long-sleeve tops like this white one.

These black faux leather pants are the perfect addition to this outfit too. They are high-waisted, a smooth faux leather material, and slim fitting. If you’re not into wide leg pants, these are for you!

I finished off the look with a rhinestone-encrusted silver bag and some sparkly heart earrings.

Green Satin Blouse Outfit

This look incorporates the traditional Christmas green but in a cute and classy way. This top is a satin cowl neck blouse that will fit perfectly.

I paired it with this sparkly sequin mini skirt. It’s in a pretty champagne color and also has a top that matches.

I layered some sheer black tights underneath. These tights are so delightful and have tiny hearts on them which adds a little something extra. I added black suede booties for some height, but they will still be comfortable.

Matching Set Outfit

This outfit is based around this amazing two-piece matching set. I love the non-traditional blue color, but it also comes in black and red.

The top is a slim fit, cinched front, velvet cropped tank. The matching pants are high-rise, velvet, and flared. This is hands-down the cutest set ever!

For warmth, I added this cropped black blazer, but a leather jacket or fuzzy jacket would also pair well with these items.

Unexpected Christmas Outfit

You might not have thought to pair a tweed mini set and tank together for Christmas, but how cute is this look?

These sets are super trendy right now (hello, Clueless vibes), so this is a great way to rock a fun trend this holiday.

Fun – Ugly Sweater Outfit

Outfit set: christmas snowman sweater, red velvet miniskirt, black belt, sheer tights, black booties
Products: Sweater, Skirt (Similar), Belt, Tights, Booties

Here’s one for those “ugly sweater” parties people love to throw this time of year. This look is sure to leave your comedic friends chuckling and your fashionable friends in awe.

Style this “chillin’ with my snowmies” sweater with this berry miniskirt and black belt. This sweater will look best slightly tucked into the front of the skirt.

Gorgeous black platforms booties are a must. They’re a great way to make this ugly Christmas sweater outfit a little more chic.

Casual Ugly Sweater Outfit

This light-up sweater is sure to keep heads turning! It calls for a laid-back look, so pair it with some black leggings.

Simple, white platform sneakers and a gold chain polish this outfit flawlessly. You can take off or add on as many accessories as you would like, but to me, this was the perfect amount to complement the sweater without taking away any of its funky elements.

All-Neutral Christmas Outfit

This one is a great way to bring some of your lighter summer pieces into the Christmas season. Just pair a cream top and midi skirt with a brown moto jacket for a cool look that’s still holiday-appropriate.

Leather Blazer Outfit

Christmas party outfit 9 - purple one-shoulder top, black miniskirt, black oversized shacket blazer, chunky ankle boots
Products: Top, Skirt, Jacket, Booties, Belt

I absolutely love this satin mini skirt! It’s slim fitting, high-waisted, and has a slit detail at the thigh. It’s also part of the Princess Polly Earth Club, which is their sustainable clothing line. This skirt is made of 100% recycled polyester!

To pair with the skirt, I picked this satin cropped tank. I love how this isn’t a traditional Christmas color, but it’s so pretty and looks good on all skin tones.

For warmth, I layered over this shacket-style faux leather black jacket, then added cow print booties and a cool belt.

Fashionable Party Outfit

How glam is this holiday party outfit? It combines tan leather pants, a cutout sweater in cream, and a gorgeous camel moto jacket.

Just add your favorite strappy heels (these braided leather ones are gorgeous!) and you’re glowing for a night out!

Sequin Kimono Cardi Outfit

Okay, I seriously never thought to rock a sequin kimono cardigan but now I definitely want one! It’s such an easy way to jazz up even the simplest jeans and tank combo.

Accessorize with cool jewelry and your favorite black heels and bag.

Chic Ugly Sweater Outfit

Okay, I know what you are going to say. What is ugly about this sweater? The answer is: nothing! But, that doesn’t mean that you couldn’t happily wear it to a Christmas party and totally get away with it.

So, for my cute and not-so-ugly Christmas sweater outfit, I paired it with these white bell-bottoms and glittery red heels. The heels match so elegantly with the snowman’s scarf and will stand out from the white jeans.

To top it all off, I added this festive-looking scrunchie.

Boho Christmas Outfit

If your style leans more bohemian, this is the Christmas outfit for you.

Not traditional in any way, this outfit mixes a printed midi dress with a chunky popcorn cardigan (so cozy!) and burgundy combat boots. Grab some thick socks and a cozy beverage and you have the perfect boho Christmas look.

Statement Bag Party Outfit

It’s amazing what the right bag can do for an outfit. This look pairs a simple silver sequin dress with a bold green satin bag for ALLLL the Christmas vibes. Green is trending this year, too, so this one wins extra fashion points.

This outfit idea is so stunning, perfect for any fancy holiday parties you have coming up!

Red Sweater Dress & Black Boots Outfit

It doesn’t get much simpler than this Christmas ‘fit. Just pair an oversized burgundy sweater dress with a simple pair of black booties and accessorize with a black chain strap bag. So easy and SO comfy!

Glam Red Sweater Dress Outfit

Cozy red midi sweater dress and brown strappy heels outfit

Here’s another pretty red sweater dress outfit, this time with a more glamorous vibe. The wide neckline, side slits, and wrap shape of this red sweater dress make it anything but ordinary. You don’t need much in terms of accessories, just your favorite jewelry and heels of choice.

Casual Cool Midi Skirt Outfit

I love how slouchy and effortless this Christmas outfit combo is. The luxe velvet midi skirt feels expensive, while the green cropped sweater is something you could wear all season long. Add your favorite heels and a crossbody bag for a casual yet festive vibe.

I could see this worn for Christmas dinner or a fun, casual get-together the night before.

Classic Little Black Dress Outfit

Products: Earrings – Zales, Dress – Nine West (Amazon), Heels – Sam Edelman (DSW)

This is such a classic and elegant look. The Nine West black dress works for numerous occasions. It’s perfect for going out to a holiday dinner with friends but could also work for internships and job interviews. The heels are also a timeless design that you will wear year after year.
