I'm sharing 10 holiday outfit ideas, both dressy and casual.

All of these looks are very budget-friendly, so no matter what your plans are this season, I hope you get inspired by some of these cute, holiday outfit ideas.

Super casual holiday look

1. Super casual holiday look

This velour, chocolate brown jogger set is perfect for a holiday activity like baking festive cookies or watching Christmas movies.

It’s soft, cozy and comes in lots of colors. It would make a great holiday gift!

Underneath I’m wearing a nude bodysuit and I’ve styled it with sneakers that have a touch of gold.

2. Winter white

There’s nothing more chic than an all-white ensemble in the winter.

I love this oversized, sequin blazer, paired with a white bodysuit (a favorite staple) and high-waisted, ivory, vegan leather pants with the on-trend, straight leg silhouette.

3. Holiday in black

This outfit revolves around this sharp, black blazer that brings the holiday vibes with its embellished buttons.

Go with all black layers, pointed-toe pumps and your favorite, black handbag.

4. Burgundy and sequins

How beautiful is this burgundy, sequined bodysuit?!

The plunging neckline makes me look taller and slimmer. I’m also wearing black, high-waisted, modern skinny jeans.

The ripped knee gives an edgy vibe. If you live somewhere cold, add a black, faux-fur jacket.

5. Metallic top

Here, I’ve kept on the same jeans but swapped in a gorgeous, metallic top.

No need to overthink your holiday looks – just grab a sequin or metallic top, pair it with fitted pants or jeans and you’re good to go!

6. A casual, cozy going-out look

This long, zebra cardigan is so cozy and warm! It’s effortless yet makes a statement.

Underneath I’m wearing a black bodysuit, black denim and black, croc-embossed knee-high boots.

These boots give the illusion of a taller build and the details make them look more expensive than they really are.

7. Elegant yet casual, winter white

Start off this look with a soft, off-white cardigan. Underneath I’m wearing ivory denim and ivory knee-high boots.

It’s dressy but not too dressy so it would be perfect for a casual get-together for the holidays.

8. All ivory

Keep the same ivory boots and top off ivory layers with a beautiful, faux-fur, tan jacket.

Is there anything more glamorous than that?!

9. Edgy holiday look

This would be great for a casual, holiday date night.

For the base I’m wearing a fabulous, gun-metal metallic camisole paired with 90’s inspired pinch-waist jeans.

I topped it with that same black blazer with the fancy buttons.

If your holiday event is dressier, you can swap out the jeans for leather pants.

10. Chanel-inspired

Last but not least, a Chanel-inspired jacket. It has a beautiful, gold button and the tweed is black and white with gold threading throughout.

I’ve paired this statement piece with a black bodysuit and black leather pants and classic, black pumps.

The jacket is so versatile–you could pair it over a black midi dress or a black leather skirt. This look is also office-appropriate, maybe for a holiday party.
