Christmas and Christmas Eve Outfits

- Fashion, Holidays, Outfits

Classy: An LBD with red lip, perfectly crafted bun and simple chain necklace

If you’ve started to pack for Christmas vacation and your time off with family and friends, you might be in a slight panic thinking “what in the world am I going to where on Christmas Eve and Christmas day?”  Thinking about what I’m going to wear for these days is important otherwise I’ll pack two extra suitcases (seriously).  Thanks to my Christmas board on Pinterest, packing has become a lot less complicated.  Do you know what you’re wearing for the holidays this year? 

Christmas Colors: Pair red with green in an unexpected way

Simplicity: Add a pair of colored tights to spice up an otherwise plain outfit

White & Black: Play with textures (feathers) and patterns (stripes) to create a chic, perfectly styled winter outfit and add a red lip for charm

Nontraditional: Opt for something you normally wouldn’t for Christmas such as leopard print, over-the-knee boots and a beret

    We don’t dress up for Christmas! I think when my Mother-In-Law turns 50 and I take over the holiday meal we will!

    I had one a gift card to Shabby Apple so I ordered a pretty lacy dress from them that I plan to wear on Christmas. I love the items you’ve featured here!

    These are beautiful looks, I love these versions, especially the first and last photos. For us, Christmas Eve is a bit more of a huge deal, so I will be going with the simple and sparkled ensemble. :) Have a wonderful weekend.

    Hi Rachel, love your blog! Just wondering where you get your pictures from? I love the picture of the model with the cream sweater dress and stockings – where would I buy those items?

    Hi Krista! Thanks for your comment! I repinned this photo on Pinterest from this board: http://pinterest.com/kemmarose/adorable-clothes/ It looks like it is a photo of Becky Filip, who you can find on MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/whatisabecky/photos/error?error=3#%7B%22ImageId%22%3A49187088%7D I'm not sure how old the photo is though so I'm not sure where you would be able to find the exact items or if they are still available! Sorry I hope that was some help :)

    Such cute outfits! I ended up wearing a neon orange top, leggings, and knee high boots. It was definitely something different from the usual green and red.
