Wear Radiant Red for the Holiday Season
I know it’s a little cliche to don red during holiday season. But I don’t think anyone would argue that wearing red during December is very festive, whether you’re running errands or dressing up for a party.
Although red seems to be a color that works with my coloring, I don’t wear it often. But during holiday season, I have fun incorporating red into my outfits in a variety of ways.
If you like the idea of festive-ing (that’s a made-up word!) up your look this holiday season, check out the photos below for some ideas for adding holiday red to your looks.
Perk Up Your Look with a Red Scarf
If a bold red look isn’t your cup of tea but you want to embrace holiday red, here’s a way to dip your toe in rather than jump in head first. Add a snug, merry scarf to your look. Of course, a scarf with a jacket or coat is predictable. And it’s a great look. But you can also incorporate a scarf as an outfit accessory that you wear indoors.
Shown are two casual ways to wear a scarf. For more ways to tie a scarf, check out this post.
Check out some of the winter-warm, solid red and fun patterned scarves below (a variety of price points).
Running Errands in Cheery Red!
Even with your most casual clothes, it’s fun to throw in a dash of red. This pea coat-inspired jacket is easy to wear, and the bright, rich red color pops. You may not want to spend a lot of money on a vivid jacket or coat, and you don’t have to. There are lots of bargains and budget friendly options. This jacket was a Target find a few years ago. I don’t wear it often, but that doesn’t bother me since I didn’t spend a lot of money on it.
Check out the red jackets and coats I curated below. You may find one that’s perfect (many are on sale).
Day Outing – Playful Red
Red pants are statement making – no way around it. So embrace the boldness of a pair of bright pants and combine them with a neutral top and some fun shoes. The cozy, cream colored sweater is a refreshing pairing and not as expected as a more common black and red combo.
Party Ready with Red!
A special evening out or a holiday party is the perfect invitation to wear red! Rich red and beautiful holiday fabrics (satin, sparkles, velvet) are a perfect marriage. You’ll feel like the belle of the ball – guaranteed!
This simple look pairs a lightweight red top with black velvet jeans and suede kitten heel booties. Mixing textures adds interest and dimension to an outfit.
I’ve curated a selection of red, holiday-appropriate blouses and tops below. You may find a perfect look for your social events this season.
Rich Red Jackets & Coats
Considering adding a red jacket or coat to your collection? Red is so much fun during holiday season, but that’s not the only time to wear red outerwear. A brightly colored topper will keep you from blending into the crowd or getting lost in a sea of black coats!
Ravishing Red – Tops, Blouses + Jeans
Every closet needs at least one festive red top! It’s a holiday yes! You’ll be glad to have a pretty red top to wear for Valentine’s Day too. And when you want to feed confident. And when you want to own the room!
A few options for red jeans are also included below!
