Red and green looks that don't go overboard
The most iconic holiday hues — red and green — don’t have to be tacky. In fact, they can actually be pretty stylish. Don’t believe us? We’ve sourced a few fashion-forward pieces that take red and green to a whole new level.
Head to any office party or holiday gift exchange in this wool-crepe flared skirt ($145) and you’ll have no problem turning heads and garnering compliments. The classic Christmas color is accented with black mesh at the cinched waist to give the piece some edge. Pair with a patterned top and black ankle boots for a chic but easy-wearing holiday style.
Who wants to be weighed down with an oversize bag while mingling at a holiday party? Not us, which is why we’ll be snapping up this party-perfect Tory Burch clutch in a fabulous shade of red ideal for the season ($193). Just the right size for the absolute essentials, this sleek leather purse would pair well with a metallic or black cocktail dress.
Stay warm in style in a versatile slim-fitting wool and cashmere sweater in a rich shade of green ($126). The slim fit means you can easily pair it with anything from denim to pencil skirts to trousers, and the color is perfect for wearing to any holiday party. Add a boyfriend blazer, skinny trousers and platform pumps for an office-ready seasonal look.
Every woman’s wardrobe needs a shift dress, one of the most easy-to-wear, classic dress styles. But for the holidays, why not get one in ravishing red? This structured shift ($100) is sophisticated, bold and a great addition to your holiday wardrobe. Pair with metallic accessories or add a belt and cardigan to switch things up.
Want to add a splash of holiday flair to any look? We suggest stepping into a pair of these glam green glossy patent pumps ($43). They’ll easily perk up a gray shift, elevate a LBD and make any pencil skirt sing. Add a pair of patterned tights if you’re wearing them with a skirt and you’ve got a fun, get-noticed ensemble.
If you don’t want to go all-out red (or green), just accessorizing with classic holiday hues can give your outfit a seasonal spin. Case in point: these ruby red Kate Spade double drip earrings ($58). The party-ready sparkle and rich red hue make for an elegant addition to any holiday look.
