16 Red + Black Outfits for Christmas Season Style Inspiration

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


Red and black is probably the most classic color combination for the Christmas season, and it's one that I wear quite a bit. While red and black is a timeless choice for a Christmas Day outfit (only 20 days away!), it's also fun to wear these colors in the lead up to the day. Note that "red" doesn't have to mean just true holly red....you can vary the shade to red-orange, brick red, maroon, etc. Wear red and black in solid and/or print pieces, alone or with other colors too (I like it a lot with white). 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 16 outfits from my previous OOTD with red sweaters, tops, or topper layers 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.)

This post really made me smile as I'm wearing red and black today! I wear red year round, but in December it seems like a nice way to nod to Christmas and the festive season without feeling like you're wearing a costume. These are such nice outfits :)


Thank you for joining the Weekday Wear Link up! Hope you are having a lovely day.

Great minds think alike, Mica - the color combo is a nice way to be festive without having to buy items with such limited seasonal use, too!

Love your red and black outfits! Black is a classic color for winter, and the the pops of red really add a lively bit of cheer. Thank you for sharing this post in the Talent-Sharing Tuesdays Link-Up 44.

I love these polka dot pants with the small red floral motif, and they were totally an impulse purchase...on sale for $8, so I couldn't pass them up. I was surprised to find that they work so well in winter because I had bought them in summer. Thanks, Michelle!

Thanks, Debbie - those shoes are a lot of fun with the tweed having a bit of gold running through them as well as the variety of colors. They always come out strong in December (indoors, haha).
