The Ultimate Guide to Holiday Outfit Ideas: Holiday Outfits For Women

Add an interesting piece: Take it from Blair- adding interest is the fun part of getting dressed! This beautifully-detailed sequin skirt is just as unconventional as it is intricate and beautiful. Pair it with basic black to allow its beauty to really shine.

Mix your pieces: Emily of Cupcakes and Cashmere always gets it right. By mixing a predictable sequin skirt with a classic tartan top, she nails the quirky, yet quintessential holiday look.


Fur & Sparkle: Who says stay away from all black around the holidays? This look is perhaps the most simplistic way to add glamour to your holidays especially when you're in a bind. Black is slimming, yet the fur vest makes this look "right now". Her Addison necklace from Spike The Punch adds just the right amount of coveted sparkle.

Plaid Layers.

Bold & Nude: Julia of Gal Meets Glam knows how to mix her prints; by mixing wintery tartan to a simple striped top she pulls off the mixing look and anchors her colors with a pop of red in her pants.

Preppy Sequins: Sequin pants are the must-have for holiday looks right now. Make your look "J Crew worthy" by adding simple basics like a cozy knit sweater, leopard flats, and a striped tee.


Metallic Pants: Metallic pants are everywhere, but the trick to nailing this trend is to keep hues neutral. Try pairing silver with gray or gold with nude/beige.

Seeking The South

Sequin Shorts: Crochet shorts are the only shorts getting play this year- move over lace and crochet- sequin shorts are here to pop your holiday look in the cutest way. Make your holiday comfy and warm by adding black tights to these stunners. Bonus points for a bright and Christmas-esque holiday cardigan.

Stop being such a bad ass, Blair.

Metallic & Feathers: A bold, but beautiful move from Blair Eadie in a feather skirt layered with a metallic sweater. Finish with simple hair to avoid competing with this attention-getting look.

Plaid Skinnies and Knit Sweater.

Printed Pants: Plaid is perfect for winter and this is a fun "teeny bopper" look that is worthy of women. I love how the shoes pull the color from the pants, and the sweater is simple enough to avoid stealing the limelight from the pants!

holiday party dress and mint blazer

Colorful Blazer: I added this fun and playful mint blazer (from the summer) to a new NYE dress to add warmth and an unexpected edge. To pull the common sparkle, I added fun heels!

love this!

Double Your Sparkle: Jeanette of J's Everyday Fashion blew me away with this sequin-on-sequin number with pieces from The Limited. I love how the trendy cap toed heels pull just the right amount of gold from her skirt while keeping the look clean and classy for an office party.

Tabley Street

Make One Piece Pop: Keeping a simple outfit black to slim is perfect, but even more adorable and simple when a stunner like this statement necklace is involved.


Add a Pop of Leopard: True, you should avoid the too-often-done all over look of leopard for the holidays. Meggy does it perfectly by adding simple touches of the print with a skinny belt and structured bag.  Her textures and prints flow perfectly together to create a pulled-together and modest look that is to die for!

Cute Christmas outfit.

Add Colored Tights: Add interest to a holiday dress with simple bold & opaque tights!

print & red jeans

Bold Lipstick & Pants: In a fur stole and matching pants & lips, this outfit is casual, yet glamorous. I love how she added a red belt for a subtle monochromatic feel.

Mixed Print Chic.

Sweater + Turtleneck: This is the new classy chic for winter. Like it or lump it- turtlenecks are back in full force and come in all textures and prints. Stay cozy and trendy by mixing your prints, layering pieces, and adding a bold pant.

Holiday Sparkle

Tie a Sweater Over a Dress: For a quick and elegant look, I tied a sequin tunic over a simple LBD for instant holiday style.

Sport a Vest: I'm in love with all of Rachel's outfits, but this one screams comfy holidays to me. I love how she layered a herringbone J Crew vest over a sheet blouse and coordinating striped turtleneck.

A Fur Stole: Fur is a coveted item this time of year and wearing it is as simple as replacing your favorite scarf in a colorblocked look!

everything. polka dots, boots, scarf. i love it all.

Polka Dots: Gwen looks adorable in her wintery polka dotted sweater and black knee-high boots!

holiday ready

Sequins & Leather: Keep it classy in a sequin pencil skirt, yet edgy with a black leather jacket.

Parker Dress + Capulet Faux Fur

Fur Jacket & Colored Heels: I love how she popped her color in the cute ankle strap heels! The fur jacket adds uber warmth to a simple dress and pearl necklace.

Sequin Party Outfit

Skirt & Gold Shimmer: Tuck a statement top into a high-waisted skirt for a flattering figure and just the right amount of holiday shimmer.

Tuxedo Jacket: Class up a pair of comfy sequin pants with a basic long tuxedo jacket to stay comfortable and stylish.

winter style

Knee Socks & Rain Boots: Hunters aren't just for rain anymore! Make them winter-friendly by adding knee socks.

Gold Touches: A statement piece doesn't just have to be in a necklace! This metallic gold belt and bangle scream classy and chic when paired with an all black ensemble.
