We all love a show-stopping holiday outfit, but let’s face it – those glittering gowns and bold accessories often end up gathering dust in the back of the closet. If you’re wanting to break free from the cycle of one-time wonders and embrace the idea of casual holiday outfits that still feel special, this post is for you!

Sweater Dress & Boots

The timeless combination of a sweater dress and boots make for a classic and ever-stylish holiday outfit. This no-fail pairing exudes cozy elegance all winter long. Whether you choose ankle boots or tall boots, it’s a look that never gets old. This Staud tunic really spices things up with the circular mirrors.

Festive Top & Baggy Jeans

If you’re looking to embrace a touch of festivity, consider this chic top adorned with an embellished trim and feather cuffs. I love how it feels fun but isn’t over the top. I paired it with baggy jeans for a look that goes from holiday gatherings to winter date nights. The best part is that this ensemble can be revisited for future occasions, making it a practical addition to your wardrobe.

Party Pants & Cropped Sweater

If subtlety isn’t your style, go all out with a dazzling pair of party pants coupled with a classic sweater. Sequined pants offer a festive flair that can be reworn every holiday season, while metallic jeans provide a more evergreen option. This dynamic duo strikes the right balance between sophistication and statement-making, ensuring you stand out at any holiday gathering.

Red Sweater & Sparkly Heels

For those who want to maximize the mix-and-match potential of their wardrobe, a red sweater, wide leg jeans and sparkly heels are the kind of pieces you can rock for holiday events as well as everyday occasions. These Manolo Blahnik heels have been a long time desire of mine, and their ability to spice up a jeans and basic top makes them a perfect splurge.
