It is finally Christmas season with air wafting of freshly baked plum cake and gingerbread cookies. Nothing beats camaraderie on Christmas quite like the food and family time. But hey, Christmas can't be celebrated without your best (and stylish) foot forward. Nothing beats Christmas dressing and nothing compares to wearing red on Christmas. Whoever said red was only the colour of love to be worn on Valentine's Day surely didn't celebrate Christmas the right way. If you're still wondering what to wear to ring in the festivities then here are some red outfit ideas for Christmas parties to ensure you're the most stylish in the room. And who knows Santa may even give you a gift for being the best dressed?
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas With These 7 Red Outfit Ideas
1. Layer Up In Leather
Leather has been the look of the year and we're surely down to trying it this Christmas time as well. Forget shoes and bags; shirts and pants have all gotten a leather makeover that we're so down for. Leather outfits are a statement in their own right and don't necessarily need much accessorising. Delicate jewellery and a clutch is all that you need to ace a leather outfit or take cue from Kylie Jenner who dons a red leather jumpsuit like it is nobody's business.
2. Suit Up In A Red Hot Pantsuit
Pantsuits are redefining power dressing and why shouldn't you channel those vibes on Christmss time too? Christmas parties are a great excuse to wear your bright red pantsuit that you have wanted to wear all year. Rest assured nobody will bat an eye or raise a question on your fashion choices. Chances are they'll turn around to ask you where you got the pantsuit from. Wear an all-red outfit or simply neutralize it with shades like beige and black to break the monotony.
3. Warm Up In A Chunky Sweater
Nothing defines Christmas time quite like a warm chunky sweater which is perfect to keep you warm and making you look like a fashionista too. Wear your chunky sweater with a pair of trousers, a skirt or your favourite sweatpants, the red sweater will surely brighten up the room. Add glistening accents in metallic finish to add that glam touch to your outfit to make it look like perfection.
4. Doll Up In A Statement Dress
Christmas comes once a year and you must make it worth your while. Go crazy who cares, right? Channel your inner diva in a tulle dress and leave everything else to fate. A statement dress will ensure that your Christmas look is a memorable one with a show-stopping look to remember. Work your monochrome magic on it or colourblock; either way all eyes will be on you this Christmas.
5. Check Out These Checks
If you're not particularly extra, then that shouldn't stop you from wearing red on Christmas either. Checks are a great way to bring in some festive cheer in our lives without overdoing with all that red. Break the monotony with multicoloured checks in a shirt, skirt or a jacket form. From lunch parties to dinner parties, nothing defines Christmas season quite like checks do and these will surely give you that edgy look at every party.
6. Cosy Up In Matching PJs
Who says a PJ party is not a party? Christmas is all about cosying up to your loved ones especially on Christmas Eve so why not make this a great opportunity for you to party the night away? Matching PJs are obviously a great photo op for Christmas and why should this Christmas be any different. Long warm embraces and good company go great with matching PJs
7. Get Ready In Santa Costumes
If you're feeling extra then why not channel the same to your Christmas fashion as well? Get your girls on board and slumber in all-red Santa outfits for the ultimate PJ party. Grinch may not approve of Christmas but we surely approve this look for a Christmas Eve party. It really can't get any better than this, ladies.
