10 Winter Outfits with Red Pants/Skirts for Christmas Style Inspiration

I will be posting Christmas season outfit inspiration Mon, Tues, Wed, and Thurs of this week (with Where Bloggers Live on Fri).


See the first Christmas season outfit post here, the second one here, and the third one here.


Red is a great Christmas color that doesn't have to be paired with black to be effective. Other neutrals, semi-neutrals, and accent colors can work well in a red holiday season outfit. Note that "red" doesn't have to mean just true holly red....you can vary the shade to red-orange, brick red, maroon, etc. Use red as a dominant color or as a pop of color against a neutral background. Incorporate seasonal textures like suede, velvet, faux fur, tweed, leather, and sweater knits...or not. Go all-in with touches of green and/or Christmas motif prints/jewelry or keep the nod to the season more subtle.


Here are 10 outfits from my previous OOTD, this time with red pants or skirts suitable across a range of temperatures/weather and occasions for some Christmas season outfit inspiration. (Of course red-based looks work outside the holiday season, too...so pin any outfits for future inspiration.)

I really like all of the red pants outfits - I have a few red and burgundy jeans that I always enjoy wearing in winter. As you've shown here they work so nicely with different shades of blue! I don't have a red pencil skirt though - that would be a fun addition to my wardrobe! I do have a red printed maxi I love :)


Thank you for joining the Weekday Wear Link up! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas :)

Red + blue forever! I was surprised by how much I wear the red pencil skirt (it's a super comfy thick knit fabric so it's easy to wear).

I especially like the print scarf with the striped blouse!

Thanks, Donna - I agree that striped top + print scarf is a winning combination, and it's very easy to do.

Beautiful outfits, Sally! And yes, I’m happy to wear the accent colors in skirts and pants. Sometimes, I prefer it.

Michelle, you rock the colored leggings like nobody's business, and it always makes me smile to see something bright like aqua or yellow in pants/leggings. Unexpected and cheerful!

I like all of these festive looks, Sally. They are festive without screaming a particular holiday! I have been branching out in wearing pants in colors other than black, grey, and navy. But, I've got a long way to go!

You're on a fun journey adding colorful pants to your wardrobe, Marsha! A lot of women are nervous to wear anything bright in pants but I just think it's such a cheerful look. Thanks!

I love the classic red + black combo also, but it's nice to have multiple options. Thanks, Joanne!
