Cute Christmas Outfit
Look cute this Christmas with a classic plaid mini skirt featuring the colors of the season: red, white, and green. Whether you’re taking holiday photos, attending a family gathering, or exchanging presents, this classic outfit is as seasonal as it gets.
A white ribbed turtleneck bodysuit matches the skirt perfectly and will keep you warm and toasty. Keep the outfit dressy with some heeled ivory-colored boots (you can also wear tights if desired).
Have fun with your accessories and wear some extra-festive items like these adorable holiday ornament-shaped earrings and a red satin hair bow barrette, which adds to the classy, feminine aesthetic of the look.

Christmas Tree-Picking Outfit
Picking out a Christmas tree is one of my favorite holiday traditions… but if I’m being honest, I’m going to make sure I get a cute outfit pic while doing so. Sorry, but you can’t deny what a cute background a tree farm makes! But even if you aren’t planning on snapping an #ootd, you’ll still want to dress festive yet functional for this fun holiday activity.
Since it’s most likely going to be cold out, a puffer jacket and a knit pom beanie hat are musts. I am obsessed with the red and black buffalo plaid print on this short puffer, which makes it feel seasonal — and BTW, it’s water-resistant, too.
Wear it with leggings or stretchy black straight-leg jeans and some sturdy lace-up lug-sole boots. This pair has a cozy faux shearling tongue for a wintry detail, and their flocked soles are ideal for walking outdoors.
P.S. — This Christmas outfit idea could also work for Christmas day, depending on your plans!
Chill Christmas Outfit
Keeping it chill this Christmas? If you’re having a super laid-back holiday, you’ll surely want to be comfy and cozy, but there’s no reason you can’t still look cute and put-together.
Rather than wear old, mismatched sweats, go for some green high-rise fleece sweatpants and a matching sherpa half-zip sweatshirt, which won’t have you sacrificing style for comfort. The vibrant green hue of both items feels cheery on Christmas, but can totally be worn all fall and winter long, too; it’s even good for class or a study sesh at the library. I’m all for versatility!
Ugg’s sheepskin-lined Tasman slippers have taken over our Insta feeds, and they’d complement this ensemble nicely, adding to the cozy yet stylish vibe. Throw on a knit beanie hat for a final touch.
Trendy Christmas Outfit
Show off your fashion sense on Christmas with a trendy look that’s festive but cool. Whether you’re celebrating with friends or family, you’ll be one of the best dressed at the dinner table in this ensemble.
Rock some black vegan leather straight-leg pants with a red or green blouse — this red satin top has a ruffle trim for a fancier feel, and its shiny fabric is the perfect contrast to the pants’ faux leather.
Jazz up the look with a layered gold pendant necklace and some sparkly cubic zirconia gold hoop earrings, plus a pair of black ankle boots. This pair of heeled sock booties with ribbed cuffs will work especially well with the straight cut of the pants.
Christmas Party Outfit
Headed to a fancy holiday party and not sure what to wear? This is your chance to pull out all the stops and go for a glam look that is sparkly and seasonal.
Velvet always looks luxe, but feels especially appropriate during the holiday season thanks to its rich, thick material. That’s why this red velvet strapless dress is going to look incredible at a holiday party, and details like its tulip hem and flattering bodice with boning add to its appeal.
Turn up the sparkle with accessories like oval pave drop earrings and an eye-catching silver disco rhinestone bag with a bracelet handle that is perfect for a night out.
But don’t stop there: a pair of rhinestone embellished heels are a must, and these pointy-toe stilettos with sparkly ankle straps and bows look like a wearable gift on your feet.
Casual Christmas Outfit
If your Christmas plans don’t involve a ton of dressing up, try a cute, casual Christmas outfit while still embracing the holiday spirit.
This outfit will make you feel like you’re walking in a winter wonderland (or at least, should be) with its faux shearling boots and darling embroidered sweater. The red cable knit sweater features white embroidery throughout that matches the ivory sherpa-lined cable knit beanie hat, both of which will keep you warm if you do venture outside (just don’t forget a puffer jacket, as well).
Opt for dark wash jeans — a straight-leg silhouette will work well with some lace-up hiker boots with a chunky lug sole. This pair also features a shearling lining and stylish pearl trim, making them a bit dressier than the average pair, and therefore better suited for the holiday.
Chic Christmas Outfit
For a chic Christmas look, try a black and emerald green color palette, plus rich fabrics like velvet and rib knit.
These black velvet high-waisted straight-leg pants look luxe and complement this beautiful green ribbed sweater top with a flattering sweetheart neckline. You’ll be able to wear both of these items outside of the holiday season too, making them versatile additions to your wardrobe.
Keep the outfit dressy with some black ankle strap pointy-toe pumps and gold double hoop earrings.
My favorite part about this outfit? This chic green marbled mini box bag with a beaded top handle and gold chain strap. It looks way more expensive than it actually is.
Cozy Christmas Outfit with Leggings
Sometimes you just want to feel cozy, and if your Christmas plans are low-key, I say there’s no shame in wearing leggings and Ugg boots!
Whether you’re watching Christmas movies on the couch, hanging by the fireplace, or taking a winter walk, this cozy, comfy outfit will make your basic black leggings look festive and fun. Wear an oversized red sweater — this one is legging-friendly and features a soft, boucle material, plus a ribbed turtleneck and cuffs for contrast.
Keep the cozy vibes going by wearing a pair of Ugg Ultra Mini Booties with some adorable fair isle socks peeking out and over your leggings (this pair ties the outfit’s color scheme together).
Simple Christmas Outfit
Don’t feel like putting a lot of effort into your Christmas outfit, but still want to look put-together? Try this simple, casual, yet cute Christmas outfit idea that involves a plaid shirt and jeans.
This flannel button-down shirt happens to incorporate red, white, and green in its plaid print which makes it extra perfect for the holiday; give it a more elevated appearance by wearing it loosely tucked into your denim. Opt for jeans with no rips and with some added flair, like this pair with an exposed button-front and straight-leg silhouette.
A gold-plated chain necklace will add instant polish to the look, as will some black ankle booties with a short heel that can be worn day or night.
For bonus points, consider accessorizing with a fun beaded bag like this “Merry and Lit AF” pouch for an added Christmas-y touch.
Boho Christmas Outfit
If your style leans boho, you don’t have to abandon your aesthetic on Christmas. This pair of green corduroy high-waisted flared pants have a totally retro feel, and their color is ideal for the holiday.
Add to the winter boho vibe with an ivory popcorn texture sweater that looks ultra cozy… and its texture reminds me of snowballs!
Finally, accessorize this Christmas outfit idea with a layered gold pendant necklace, and wear white ankle boots with a western-inspired design to tie the look together.
Celebrate Hanukkah in style with a black and white tweed plaid houndstooth dress layered over a lightweight black turtleneck top. This cute dress features a square neckline with frayed hems for a cool update on a classic look. (Of course, you can also wear it on its own, depending on the weather you’re celebrating in.)
A pearl and rhinestone embellished headband is going to add a fancy touch to the outfit and provides just the right amount of bling.
Complete the ensemble with black square-toe ankle booties that have a block heel and black opaque tights.
