The holiday season is such a fun time of year. It’s filled with holiday gatherings, gift swaps with friends, and hanging at home with family. As your schedule fills up, it’s normal to feel excited and a little anxious (especially if you’re on the introverted side). Well… let us take one thing off your plate. We’ve gathered allll the casual holiday outfit ideas you’ll need! We’ve included tips for dressing up casual looks and to incorporate casual clothing you already own, so you don’t have to go shopping for the *perfect* new outfit.
9 Casual Holiday Outfit Ideas With Jeans
If you’re in need of a casual, but festive, holiday party outfit – we’ve got your back! Check out our favorite inspo below.
1. Get comfy in jeggings and an oversized sweater
Let’s get one thing straight: Just because you’re cozy, doesn’t mean you’re underdressed. This outfit idea is the perfect example of being put together while staying comfortable and warm. If you want to be even more comfy, skip the jeggings and go for regular leggings!
2. Add a splash of color to your casual look
Adding colorful elements is a great way to tie an outfit together. For your next holiday event, wear your favorite jeans with a colored cardigan, ankle booties, and a bag. If you don’t have colorful shoes, opt for a colorful headband or scarf!
3. Layer with your favorite blazer or leather jacket
We all tend to stress about our holiday outfits, but they really don’t need to be complicated. Style your favorite jeans with an oversized blazer or leather jacket. You’ll immediately look classy, casual, and put together.
4. Make a statement with a sequin top
We can already imagine wearing this outfit to a New Year’s Eve or Christmas Eve party! Here us out… sequins are magical. Not just because they’re sparkly (although we love that!), but because they immediately dress up any holiday look. Wear your favorite baggy jeans with something sparkly, and you’re ready to party!
This might be the easiest outfit idea on our list, because it only requires one piece. If you need a casual outfit idea for a holiday event, simply wear a sweater dress (seriously, it’s like wearing a stylish blanket all night!). If you want to dress it up, you can add tights and booties or heels.
Even if you’re wearing your most cozy turtleneck, color coordinating is the perfect way to make it look put together. For your next holiday party, simply wear all white and black (or brown, for a warmer look!). Seriously… you could wear a cropped t-shirt, jacket, and jeans, but if it’s all monochromatic, it will look chic and intentional.
7. Swap your jeans for a denim skirt
Put a twist on your latest go-to casual outfit by swapping your jeans out for a skirt. This will immediately elevate your look to “holiday party ready.”
8. Layer like a J. Crew model
When it comes to cohesive, casual winter outfits, layering is your new bff. For the perfect day-to-night look, layer a button down, crewneck or cashmere sweater, and a blazer (you can always remove layers throughout the day if needed). This way you can look chic all day at work and you don’t have to go home and change before your evening event! To pull your casual look together, add coordinating accessories like sunglasses, sneakers, and a hat.
9. Add a faux fur accent
Any fun accents or statement pieces will draw the eye, so they’re an easy way to dress up a casual outfit. Consider a suede jacket like this! Alternatively, a blanket scarf or wool coat would add texture and interest to your look.
