It really is the most wonderful time of the year, isn’t it? Especially this year, as many of us finally gather together again and celebrate in person! Not much could be better than that. But as the holiday season starts creeping up, you may be looking into your closet and realizing that you don’t have any good clothing options to wear to extended family dinners or your long-anticipated work party. Yet, spending tons of money on clothes that you’ll only wear a handful of times during the year doesn’t seem like the best move either. Thankfully, there are incredibly cute items that don’t break the bank. And I found them for you.

If you want to refresh your wardrobe and have a few new things to wear for the holiday season without having to spend a lot of money, look no further. From cozy sweaters to gala-worthy dresses, these picks can help you put together the best Christmas outfit ideas for women under $50!

1. Tie Front Cardigan
Does it get much cuter than silky bows? For a classy Christmas look, wear this cardigan over a black or white top and pair it with a high-waisted party skirt. Accessorize with pearl or diamond earrings!

2. Puff Sleeve Blazer Dress
Though the silhouette is a little reminiscent of the 80s, this vintage-inspired dress still seems current with the black and white color combo. Plus, how fun are those sleeves! Wear it to a work party with black heels and sheer tights. No need for a necklace- your collar will do all the talking. All you need are diamond or statement earrings and a red lip.

3. Green Knitted Set
Ugh, too cute. This tiny bow detail in a soft green color is perfect for holiday dressing in a subtle way. Since the top is cropped, wear with high-waisted bottoms such as jeans, knit pants, or wide-leg pants.

4. Multicolored Knit Sweater
This kitschy yet cute sweater is a great pick for the winter season. With classic holiday colors and pom poms, this sweater will keep you smiling and cozy all Christmas day. Pair with jeans or bottoms in a coordinating sweater color!

Let’s call this one “grandma chic”. Pair this victorian style sweater with dark cropped flared jeans and pearl earrings for an updated twist on this vintage style.

6. Fairy Dust Black Cardigan
Subtle yet festive, this sweater is a must-have for your holiday wardrobe. Wear buttoned-up as a stand-alone top. A pair of diamond chandelier earrings will bring out the subtle sparkle in this sweater.

7. Black Cami Dress
Have a gala or fancy party to attend to? This dress is a steal at just $24. Look like a classy knockout by pairing it with black heels, diamond jewelry, and a sparkly clutch.

8. Red Collared Cardigan
This bold red cardigan just screams festive! No need to pair any green with this look, instead, pair this sweater with jeans or navy blue bottoms for an outfit that reads festive without being cheesy. Finish off the look with pearl earrings for a classy element.

9. Texture High Neck Cardigan + Knit Shorts
A cozy cable-knit two-piece set? Say no more. This winter set is perfect for looking cute while staying home and binge-watching Christmas movies!

10. Turtleneck Sweater
This sophisticated sweater is a classy take on dressing for the holidays! Pair it with chandelier earrings and dark wash jeans.

15. Winter Stripe Sweater
A classic Christmas sweater without being cheesy. Lean into the casual feel of this sweater by pairing it with jeans or pull-on tie waist pants. Another great outfit if you’re staying home.

16. Green Pocket Knit Cardigan
If you want an easy way to look festive without trying too hard, then just wear a green sweater! This versatile piece can be worn alone or with other colors. Try wearing it open over a white tee with a midi skirt.

17. Side Tied Mini Dress
When in doubt, wear a wrap dress. Or a faux wrap dress-I won’t tell. Universally flattering on everyone and it works for any occasion, whether that’s a work party or a dinner party. Add some sparkles like chandelier earrings or colors like a red lip, to make it look great for the holidays.

18. Pearl Blouse
You can’t get much classier than pearls. But to class this up even more for a party, wear this pearl top with a high-waisted a-line skirt.
