This outfit is a fantastic pick for a night out with friends or a date night during the holiday season. The brushed cashmere sweater is chic and perfect for staying warm, while the leather skirt and knee-high boots are sexy and chic!

If you want a little more sparkle in your holiday look, go for a sweater with shimmer details!

festive details.

If you ask me, a sleek black bodysuit and blue jeans are the perfect base for any Christmas outfit. I love how the sequinned cardigan and silver slingbacks instantly upgrade this ensemble. And the red handbag with bow tie details is seriously stunning!

a pop of color.

get the look:

Going out for dinner and drinks with friends or family this holiday season? This would be my top pick to wear during such an occasion. 

A sparkly red mini skirt screams Christmas, but it still has the elevated feel we want. I suggest pairing this playful skirt with timeless pieces like a crewneck sweater and tall black boots to keep this outfit classy and sophisticated. 

mix in metallics.

get the look:

Iadore metallics in a Christmas outfit! But if you don’t want a bold metallic piece like pants or a top, you can always get the same look by mixing in metallics in other ways. Earrings, shoes, and a handbag are great ways to add shimmer to your look. 

I love the red top here for more of that Christmas feel, and the pop of color is so lovely with the neutrals and silver pieces. 

holiday colors.

get the look:

Go for a monochromatic look with Christmas colors if you really want to show off your holiday spirit. I would wear this gorgeous ensemble to a holiday get-together with friends or for a night out in December.

I suggest choosing neutral-colored accessories to balance this deep red outfit. 

plaid & bows.

get the look:

If you were wondering if you could add patterns to your Christmas outfit while keeping it classy – the answer is yes! Plaid is one of my favorite prints this time of the year. It’s fun, timeless, and totally festive.

I recommend choosing refined pieces for the rest of the outfit to keep the look elevated and not overly busy. There’s no doubt this plaid strapless top paired with cute bow earrings will have you ready for any holiday event!

simple & sophisticated.

I love a classic and timeless look during the holidays. The red top adds a festive aesthetic, while the silk skirt gives this look a refined touch in my next outfit. In my opinion, this simple but sophisticated ensemble is great for dinner with the in-laws this holiday season!

elevated casual.

get the look:

You can easily elevate a simple, casual winter outfit and make it Christmas-ready with little details. I think pumps are one of the best pieces to upgrade an outfit with, and the rhinestone purse and silver hoops are the finishing touches you need for this holiday look. 

make it shimmer.

Christmas is the perfect time to swap your basic black pants for a sparkly pair!

If you love neutral palettes, this is the outfit I would recommend for you. It’s minimal and modern with beautiful neutral tones, but you can also easily tell this is a festive look. This outfit is perfect for a Christmas tree decorating party or an intimate gathering with friends or family. 

midi dress & knee-high boots.

get the look:

Of course, I’m going to add a sleek knit dress to my list of classy Christmas outfits! This burgundy color definitely has my heart, but navy or forest green would be stunning here, too. I would wear this look to an office party or a formal Christmas event.

add a blazer.

get the look:

It’s no secret that a blazer is excellent for elevating any outfit, but did you know this piece can give you a holiday aesthetic, too? The plaid print instantly adds a festive vibe, and you can easily choose a blazer with red or green plaid for a more colorful look.

I love pairing my plaid blazer with black leather pants to add an edgy vibe to the look. 

classy & chic.

Are you going for a luxurious look this Christmas? Not only are metallics an easy way to achieve this and add a holiday feel, but the combination of textures elevates this outfit as well.

In my opinion, the combo of velvet, silk, and cashmere is a must for a high-class Christmas outfit. 

glam meets edgy.

You may not think a leather jacket works for a classy Christmas outfit, but I’m here to tell you it does! I love the edgy vibe from adding this piece, and it definitely balances out the feminine look of shimmering pants and heels.

I would wear this outfit when going for Christmas cocktails with my friends.

flirty & feminine.

A mini skirt and fitted turtleneck have the perfect balance of flirty and classy, if you ask me. Brighten the look with a light wool coat, and add the embellished handbag and chunky silver hoops for those Christmas vibes!

silk skirt & leather jacket.

Next on my list of classy Christmas outfits for women is this gorgeous and glamorous outfit! The full-black outfit is elegant as is, but the faux fur coat and pops of silvers give it a high-class look.

I would wear this to a Christmas ballet or a fancy dinner party.

cardigan & slip dress

I love a good knit cardigan, and this grey number looks great over a long black slip dress with black ballet flats. I love this outfit for a cozy Christmas gathering with friends or a date night with my hubby during the holiday season. 

It’s less glitzy and sparkly as many of the other looks, but it is cozy, classy, and perfect for Christmas! 

black & metallic.
