Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! It’s a busy time of the year with many places to go and things to do. Don’t let that nagging question of “what do I wear” hold you back and don’t think you have to resign yourself to wearing red and black to look festive. I’ve seen requests for Christmas outfits that aren’t red and black (red top or sweater and black pants) so I’ve got you covered with 19 Christmas outfits that aren’t red and black.

Wear these to a variety of activities- parties, shopping, family photos, caroling, gift exchanges, church, to the tree farm, or where ever you have a need to look festive. Use these for inspiration and think out of the box. If you want to wear a skirt instead of pants, swap the bottoms. Flip the colors from top to bottom. Swap out shoes. Make it work for you.
1- Lace top+ velvet pants+mules
Textures and patterns make an outfit more interesting and festive for this time of year. No red in this outfit. Burgundy makes a great substitute for red and still looks seasonal. A plaid mule or loafer would look cute with this outfit.
2- Green pencil skirt + bow sweater Green is just as festive as red.
3- Cream/ivory sweater+jeans+vest+festive scarf+riding boots These are fall and winter basics you should have in your closet. With a fun scarf, they become a festive outfit.
4 Fair isle sweater+ burgundy (colored) jeans + booties.
A fair isle sweater is festive without being tacky. Pair it with a coordinating colored pant for a fun Christmas outfit.
5 Cream or ivory sweater + velvet pants+ fur scarf/stole + black ankle boots
A faux fur stole or scarf makes an outfit just a little bit more festive and fancy.
6 Sweatshirt or sweater dress + fur vest + tall boots

7-Cream sweater with burgudy jeans/pants + faux fur stole/scarf+leopard booties Again, burgundy works for the season. Basics get a kick from the faux fur stole and leopard booties.
8-Cream sweater+buffalo plaid vest+jeans+riding boots
No buffalo plaid vest? Switch this up with a grey or black vest and a buffalo plaid scarf.
Scarf- similar; sweater- Gap; jeans- NYDJ; boots- Naturalizer; vest- Old Navy
9- Plaid shirt+grey jeans+fur vest+winter boots+embellished beanie
I love wearing this blingy beanie during the holidays. If you aren’t going to be outside much, go without a beanie.
10- Burgundy cowl neck sweater+boot cut jeans+blanket scarf+ankle boots
Wear a plaid blanket scarf like a shawl with any sweater and jeans for a festive touch.
11 Cream sweater+burgundy pants+plaid scarf (worn as shawl)
Sweater- Gap/old; pants- Loft/ old; leopard flats- old
12 Striped top+jeans+riding boots+ plaid scarf +utility vest
Don’t be afraid to do a little pattern mixing with your holiday outfits.
13 Plaid shirt + red (or green) skirt+ leopard pumps+crystal statement necklace
Add a little sparkle with your earrings and necklace and your everyday outfits become holiday outfits.
14 Cream sweater + velvet pants + plaid scarf+ black booties
A plaid scarf with a little red and green goes a long way into transforming basics into Christmas appropriate outfits.
15 Green cardigan+plaid top+ jeans+tall boots
Green is just as festive as red during this season. Add a little interest with a leopard clutch or purse.
16- Cream sweater+black pants (velvet) +black booties + necklace+ velvet cap
Change up your basics into a festive outfit with a sparkly necklace and a fun hat or other accessory.
17- Red Sweater + plaid shirt + cream corduroy pants + taupe booties
No black involved! Pair red with cream/ off white corduroy for a festive look. Add a little bling with your earrings.
18 Velvet blazer+plaid shirt+black pants+ pumps
A velvet blazer makes a great holiday party outfit. I paired this one with a plaid shirt and a crystal statement necklace to make it more festive. I think this outfit would work equally well with boot cut jeans.
19- Buffalo plaid vest+gingham shirt+jeans
Okay, so this last one is red and black. But, it’s not a red top and black pants. It’s cute and quirky and fun for a day of outdoor Christmas activities.
Whew! That’s a long list of options. I hope you found some inspiration for Christmas outfits that aren’t red and black. Please pin and share so others can find these!
