15 Green + Black Outfits for Christmas Season Style Inspiration

I will be posting Christmas season outfit inspiration Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Fri of this week (with Style Imitating Art on Wed). Come back tomorrow for more outfit ideas.



After red and black, green and black is probably the most traditional color combination for the Christmas season. While it's a timeless choice for a Christmas Day outfit, it's also fun to wear these colors in the lead up to the day. Note that "green" doesn't have to mean just true green....you can vary the shade to bright green, dark green, yellow-green, olive, aloe/sage, green-teal, etc. Wear green and black in solid and/or print pieces, alone or with other colors too (I like it a lot with white). Use green 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 red and/or Christmas motif prints/jewelry or keep the nod to the season more subtle.


Here are 15 outfits from my previous OOTD with green and black suitable across a range of temperatures/weather and occasions for some Christmas season outfit inspiration. (Of course this color combination works outside the holiday season, too...so pin any outfits for future inspiration.)

I tend to wear green and black often as I am still warming up to the colour green and pairing it with neutrals is always a safe bet, haha! I really like the muted tones of these green and black outfits - so perfect for a winter Christmas!


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

Thanks, Mica - and you make a good point about the "winter" Christmas. Dark green seems like a great pairing with light denim or white for a summer Christmas (or just go all out with bright green instead, of course!).

Green with black is a winning color combination for winter dressing. I like how you've combined the tops, skirts, pants in complementary colors -- and the shoes and scarves really make the outfits look complete. Thank you for sharing this post in the Talent Sharing Tuesdays Link-Up 45.

Thanks, Michelle! Outfit #2 is such a good example of how easy an outfit can be using a scarf and colored shoes to jazz up a simple sweater + black pants combo.

I really like the green options for the holidays too. It's a nice switch from red. XOXO Jodie

Yes, I have had a lot of fun using green instead of red - it's a little less common, and green is a favorite color of mine. Thanks, Jodie!

One of my favorite plaids is Black Watch which is green, navy, and black. I always try to find something each year in Black Watch. And, since that seems to only appear around the holidays, I guess I do!


You have such an artistic eye for combining different colors and patterns, Sally! I really love the addition of bracelets and scarves for those pops of color or even the focal point of your outfit!

Yes, Black Watch is a wonderful plaid. I hadn't thought about how it combines both navy and black - interesting! My husband really likes that plaid also. Thanks for your kind comment about my artistic eye...I have a lot of fun with these combinations!
