How to wear red for christmas. I was not a fan of wearing red on Christmas because I thought it gives off so many Christmas vibes. Although red is one of my favorite colors. However, I like to wear it on days when it is not the color of the day.
I used to think that there are so many jingle bell songs and celebrations that remind us of the season already. But my mindset changed with time.
You may need to wear it for a family photo shoot or a get-together where red is the color code. And it will be crucial to have a red dress on hand when such situations arise.
In this article, I will show you how to wear red in a way that will convince you that this color is still worth it.
How To Wear Red For Christmas
1. Wear red as a skirt
Wear red as a skirt because red is a traditional color for the holiday. You might want to own a skirt, which is not bad.
Skirts are an adorable way to look feminine. You can choose any type of skirt you want. Either you opt for a pencil skirt or a flowy one. Keep in mind that because it is a bright color, it should be paired with something neutral.
This is also a look to opt for when you are not ready for head-to-toe red.
Priyanka Chopra wore a camel sweater with a coat and a red skirt with boots.
2. As a sweater
The Christmas season is a time for chilly weather. So it is right for you to want to pull off a casual look with a red sweater.
During the holidays, consider wearing the red sweater you already own to achieve a minimalist look. Take a look at the one Bella Hadid wore.
Bella Hadid created an edgy red look by teaming her red sweater with torn jeans. The thick belt is a wise choice because it gives the fit some depth and highlights her figure.
3. As a dress
This is not a time when a little black dress is a go-to. Rather a pretty red dress. A red dress is one of the easiest pieces to style because it already flatters the body. You just need to add a handbag, shoes, and pieces of jewelry with lovely hair and makeup. A red dress is elegant and classy.
If you want to look sophisticated this Christmas, stick with a dress with fewer embellishments. This is because red is already a loud color, like Emilia Clarke’s gorgeous dress from the movie “Me Before You.” Don’t forget to apply red lipstick.
4. As a suit
Put on a tailored red suit for Christmas. This look is reserved for the bold. Not everyone dares to pull off a look like this. This Christmas, either choose monochrome or go home. It is imperative to ensure that this suit doesn’t go overly formal. Opt for this red sleek suit Zendaya wore for a daytime gathering.
5. Wear double denim
This is a double-dose look. Denim on denim is a Y2K trend that is back, and we can’t get over it. Although jeans are casual pieces and, the way to make them classy is by going overboard with them. Combine a red jacket and red pants with a white inner garment. Add a black boot with a handbag that will give your denim a Christmas-approved look. The way Kendall Jenner pulled this off makes her look chic.
6. Wear as pants
Red pants are one of the shiniest outfits anyone can wear. It is also a smart idea when you don’t want to make it monochrome but want to keep it simple.
You can rock red pants with a Tee, button-down or up shirt, or even a blazer. There are many different outfits you can choose from. I love the way Gigi Hadid paired her red pants with a black graphic tee. It is casual but gorgeous.
7. As a makeup
If you want to have fun with this color, you shouldn’t just wear it as clothing. Equally daring statements can be made with red makeup. Red eye makeup grabs a lot of attention, whether it has glitter or not. Or go for the traditional holiday lip color of bright red. Selena Gomez wears her Rare Beauty creme lipstick to striking effect in this look.
8. As an accessory
To create a head-turning look as an accessory choose red. This is especially when you don’t want to do too much with the color. But, you still want to maintain the touch. Shoes give confidence but a red shoe adds elegance to it.
If you don’t want to avoid wearing red, try it as a shoe, handbag, or even jewelry.
In conclusion, do not be afraid to try red this holiday. Dress monochromatically, with pants, accessories, or a skirt. Instead of black or white, combine it with tan, or cream. Although, I am not a fan of green with red. But experiment with it and see what works.
