17 Christmas Season Outfits with Red Sweaters/Tops/Vests for Winter 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.


See the first Christmas season outfit post here and the second 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 17 outfits from my previous OOTD, this time with red sweaters, tops, or vests 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.)

Wonderful outfits! I love your black pinstripe slacks. My favorite color to wear with red this time of year is black. Such a dramatic combination as a number of your outfits demonstrate.

Red + black really is the combination I keep coming back to for winter, though red + navy is a favorite year-round. Thanks, Michelle.

You wear red so well. I love the short sleeved jumper with the two front pockets, great layering piece!

Thanks, Emma! That was such a surprise piece to me. I didn't have the highest hopes for it when I ordered it online, but it turns out that I love wearing it. It is definitely a great layering piece!

I like the use of accent colours in your outfits, Sally. Red pants look great on you. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous styles. Anna

Thanks, Anna! I do love wearing red pants, which is typically considered a no-go for plus size women, but I guess I go against common wisdom there!

Sally, these are all such wonderful combinations. You make red and its cousins quite versatile! I am not a fan of true red and have very little of it in my closet. I usually go with black or grey when I do wear it. I'm not sure why I don't like it that much...maybe it intimidates me? I need to explore this a bit!

That's interesting, Marsha - red is often treated as a color that everyone likes, but of course the reality is more complicated! I also enjoy true red with black and/or grey.

I always like the burgundy as an option like you've shown Sallly
