Our Best Advice for Putting Together Cute and Classy Christmas Outfits

There’s a delicate balance to be struck between dressing for the season and looking like you just wandered in from the North Pole — and we’re here to help you achieve it!

When putting together Christmas outfits that are both cute and classy, we suggest blending the classics with a few modern trends. Red and green is a MUST for the season, and it’s totally possible to rock it in a non-cheesy way! Just look for pieces that combine your favorite silhouettes with the festive colors, like this red satin halter top or this green fitted jumpsuit.

GWS Tip: For something a little more subtle, you can also swap out the classic reds and greens for sophisticated maroons and emeralds!

Not much of a color person? Channel twinkle lights instead of Christmas trees by rocking silver or gold! These dazzling shades never fail to capture that holiday magic — especially when paired with some seriously on-trend sequins.

And speaking of fabrics, velvet is always a good idea!

‘Tis the season for accessorizing! As the most glamorous and chilliest time of the year, layering on accessorizing is a requirement when styling Christmas outfits. You don’t have to tell us twice!

To make your festive ‘fit weather-appropriate without sacrificing on style, we’re currently loving faux fur jackets and statement double-breasted coats. Even if you’re just bundling up for the short trek from your car to the holiday party, you might as well make it cute!

As for your legs, black tights are a must-have in the winter, especially if you’re rocking a shorter hemline — and bonus points if they’re fleece-lined! We also couldn’t be happier about the knee-high boots trend happening right now. We’re suckers for a practical fashion moment!

The holidays are also the time to embrace the sparkle of the season. Pair any and all of your best cute Christmas outfits with rhinestones and bold gems, like these statement earrings or these stackable birthstone rings (also a great Christmas gift idea!).

Now for our list of the best Christmas outfits for every style — don’t forget to check it twice!!
