It’s no wonder they say the holidays are the most wonderful time of the year. Between spending time with your loved ones, feasting on savory and sweet treats, and dressing up in festive holiday wear, there’s plenty to embrace and celebrate.


Celebrate the holidays in style. The perfect holiday outfit exudes confidence, feels comfortable, and most of all, embraces the festive vibe the season has to offer. With sparkling accessories, deep colors, and soft and sleek fabrics, you’re bound to make a statement at the office holiday mixer or around the dinner table. Here’s a helpful guide of holiday outfit ideas you can piece together to wear to your next event.


11 holiday outfit ideas


Whether you’re attending a formal event or baking cookies with your family, the perfect holiday outfit elevates any occasion. These 11 holiday outfit ideas will put you right into a festive mood:


  1. Oversized blazer with corset top

Wide-leg pants and oversized blazers are a great combination for creating a comfortable yet polished holiday outfit. The key here is to style this look right – anything short can feel more like post-dinner sweatpants. Hit the mark by pairing an oversized blazer with a fitted top like a corset to bring some structure to this look.


  1. A sweater dress

A sweater dress is comfortable and cute. You can dress it up or down, too. Add a pair of sparkle beaded tights, pearls, and black ankle strap heels for a more elegant, sophisticated look. And if you want something more laid back for a relaxing day with your family, your sweater dress is still right at home, sans pearls and sparkly tights.


  1.  Parachute pants with a puffy vest

This streetwear look has been all over the runways of late and seen on many celebrities, rocked by celebs like Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid. To pull off this look, pair your parachute pants with a fitted top, then add a puffy vest for extra warmth. To make this outfit festive for the holiday season, make one of your pieces a statement color, such as wine red or forest green. Then, add a pair of sneakers for the perfect casual look.


  1. A metallic dress

Nothing says glitz and glam like sparkling silver or gold. Whether you choose fitted or flare, long sleeve or sleeveless, a dress with shimmering threads brings the party to any festive gathering. Add a pop of color to your holiday ensemble with a bright pair of pumps and chic sunnies.


  1.  Leather pants with a plaid jacket

If you’re on the hunt for modern and chic pants that go with everything, leather pants should be at the top of your list. Whether you prefer straight leg or jogger-style pants, either option you can spice up for your holiday festivities. Pair your leather pants with a fitted neutral top, and add a colorful plaid button-up jacket for a more festive look. Finish off your look with a red matte lip and a matching crossbody bag like our 100% Italian leather Cadence.


  1. High-waisted jeans and a cozy knit

If casual cabin chic is your aesthetic, go for a comfortable, casual look such as high-waisted jeans and a knit sweater. To give it a holiday twist, choose a sweater in a winter wonderland theme and pair it with light denim. Add a pair of chunky heeled boots, and you’re ready for a family-filled day of fun.

  1. Neutral monochrome outfit

There’s something about a neutral monochrome outfit that looks polished yet edgy. To spice up your one-color ensemble, play around with textures. For example, you can elevate wide-leg trousers and a simple cotton top with a puffer vest or faux fur jacket. Add some statement earrings and a few cuff bracelets to take this look into festive territory.


  1. Button-down and leather mini skirt

A classic holiday outfit that’s both practical and polished during the cold season is a classic button-down shirt paired with a leather mini skirt. Add a pair of sleek black tights and jewels, or opt for a sequined top for some extra sparkle this holiday season.


  1. Statement pantsuit

Go bold this holiday season with a Serena Van der Woodsen-inspired pantsuit ensemble. This matching look is classy and powerful yet effortless. Choose a neutral pantsuit – try a basic black one you may already have in your closet – and select festive colors to make your outfit pop.


Tie your look together with the sleek leather Aria belt bag you can carry as a clutch, or wear as a shoulder purse or fanny pack. And depending on the color of your pantsuit, you can choose a classic sand or black color or opt for a forest or merlot color.


  1. Cashmere loungewear set

A chic outfit that feels as comfortable as pajamas? Sign us up! A cashmere loungewear set lends elegance without skimping on warmth or style. The relaxed fit of a poncho-style capelette maximizes movement without giving up on appearance. It can be worn with jeans or leggings, or wear it with cashmere bottoms for unmatched head to toe comfort. Pair your ensemble with silver kitten heels and sparkle earrings to dress it up.


  1. Midi dress

For more formal occasions, a midi dress is a great go-to. It’s simplistic yet sophisticated and easy to dress up or down. For more of a black-tie formal look, choose a midi dress made from sleek satin material and pair it with strappy heels and sequined silver berets. If your party is more semi-formal, a soft sweater-like material is perfect. Add a pair of chunky or thigh-high boots to make a bold statement.


How to accessorize a holiday outfit


Make your holiday ensemble pop even more with these go-to accessories:


  • A jeweled headband or berets. Whether you’re wearing a dress or leather pants, add a jeweled headband or berets for a preppy, elegant twist. Choose between a silver pearled headband or berets that look like glistening silver stars.

  • Sparkly tights. Instead of going bare-legged or opting for a pair of tights that blend in with your dress, add a bit of sparkle with jeweled tights.

  • A festive purse. Add a pop of color to your holiday outfit with the perfect handbag. SENREVE carries a variety of bags that are easily interchangeable, from a clutch to a shoulder bag to crossbody, with plenty of styles that change seamlessly between them. No matter which way you plan to wear it, choose one in a fun festive color like merlot red or forest green.

  • Dangle earrings. If you’re stuck on finding the perfect accessory to transform your outfit into a staple piece, try reaching for your favorite pair of dangle earrings. The sparkle they bring to your look is sure to elevate your whole ensemble.
