The Christmas tree is up, the Christmas songs are playing on repeat, and chances are you’ve already bought a couple of gifts for the people on your Christmas list. The only thing that’s left to do is find a cute Christmas outfit. Looking for classy Christmas outfits is something to look forward to in the Christmas season (because when else can you wear so much sparkle?), but when there are already so many other things to buy, it seems as if the perfect Christmas outfit comes at too high a price. To make picking the right festive outfit easy for you, I’ve picked affordable yet classy Christmas outfit ideas with each piece below $50!

Outfit 1

dress | heels | earrings

Get into the Christmas spirit by rocking festive hues! Red is a perfect choice when creating a holiday look because it’s such a rich and classy color. So if you want to get glammed up this holiday season, choose a red dress.

Pair your red dress with statement bow shoes. Finish off your elegant look with black tights and jewel-coordinating accessories for a polished yet classy look.

Outfit 2

Give a basic turtleneck a glam look by teaming it up with a statement sequin skirt. If your weather demands it, then pair the skirt with black tights to stop your legs from freezing.

And finally, finish your dinner party outfit with these satin bowknot stilettos. The rhinestone details complement the sparkle in the sequin skirt, while the black turtleneck grounds the whole look, keeping it from looking too costumey.

Outfit 3

shirt | pants | shoes | earrings

If you don’t know what to wear to the upcoming office Christmas party, consider this classic look. Office Christmas parties call for a holiday party outfit that follows dress codes (while still being stylish), so it’s a good idea to mix pieces that are office-appropriate and fun.

To strike the right balance, pair a white shirt with dress pants. But instead of going for the traditional black dress pants, opt for these elevated satin pants instead to add a classy, festive style to your button-down shirt. Complete your look with black kitten heel mules that are equal parts chic and comfortable to wear.

When in doubt, you can never go wrong with a little black dress during Christmas time. Black dresses have an effortless soiree appeal and this velvet pick is perfect for the holidays as this material can make your whole outfit look (and feel) extra fancy.

For extra warmth, finish off your look with a classy outerwear piece, such as a shawl, tailored coat, or faux fur jacket. One of the best ways to complete this look is with festive black heels and statement earrings.

sweater | pants | shoes | earrings

If you’re looking for a chic comfy outfit for Christmas day, might I suggest this look? The neutral sweater is a cozy and sophisticated piece to wear compared to an ugly Christmas sweater. Team up your sweater with plisse pants, which are finely pleated pants that are rich in texture and have a subtle shine. They are equally as classy as a timeless sweater and just as comfortable to wear.

Bring the festive touch to your outfit through your accessories. Accessorize with bow velvet earrings to look effortlessly well-put together at the dinner table. Give your outfit an extra elegant and cozy touch with these stylish mules.

Outfit 6

Red and green are obvious Christmas colors that we love, but midnight blue is perfect for evening Christmas celebrations as well. Especially when it’s a huggable sweater dress. After all, who can resist the coziness and instant outfit-making a one-and-done sweater dress offers?

This look doesn’t need much. Elevate the look with a stylish coat or poncho/shawl and slip on some classy boots!

Outfit 7

skirt | sweater | earrings | heels

A white or cream sweater is a Christmas staple. The color is on theme with twinkling lights and fresh snow. Plus, it’s versatile, so you can create a lot of stylish Christmas outfits with it. For this look, pair a white or cream sweater with a black midi slip skirt.

The skirt features an A-line shape that will flatter your figure and a mid-calf length that is perfect for showing off your fancy footwear. Round off your look with statement heels.

Outfit 8

top | boots | jeans | blazer | earrings

There are classy and fun ways of incorporating the traditional shades of Christmas into an outfit without being over the top. You can use a red camisole top to brighten up your black skinny jeans. Adding a blazer on top adds warmth and dresses it up at the same time.

And after Christmas is over, you can still rock this outfit for other occasions!

Outfit 9

Would it be Christmas without wearing cozy sweaters? Even better that this sweater has embellishments that make it festive for the season. For a preppy chic look, pair the sweater with a plaid skirt and tights.

Dress up the sweater by accessorizing it with a black headband. And finally, the pearl studs will give your sweater outfit an effortlessly polished vibe.
