5 Warm Weather Holiday Outfits For Celebrating Xmas in Hot Climates

In this style guide, I’m going to be styling Christmas outfits in five different ways for five different Christmas occasions. Keep in mind that I live in Australia, so the Christmas season falls over summer here; these warm weather holiday outfits aren’t meant for snow!

1. Work Christmas party outfit

I love this neutral and red color scheme. My base is a loose beige dress. The dress is nice and loose, so it’s comfy for big dinners, if you know what I mean! It’s a great base to add on to.

I paired the dress with my red stiletto heels to start to add some of that festive flavor. Continuing on the red Christmas theme, I popped on a red Christmas flower headband that still says Christmas but in a more classy way than your typical Santa hat.

I went with big gold hoop earrings and my favorite black and cream handbag for accessories. If you need an extra layer, layer on a white blazer for more professional vibes.

2. Casual Christmas outfit

For my casual Christmas outfit, I was picturing what I want to wear for Christmas shopping. Personally, I don’t like to wear closed shoes when I need to walk a lot because I tend to get blisters. So these white slides are some of my comfiest shoes.

You don’t really need to go too Christmasy when you shop, but it never hurts! I decided on these red culottes paired with a red singlet bodysuit. The white statement sleeve mesh crop top is layered over the top to pull in the white from the shoes.

Gold earrings for accessories again, what can I say? I like gold for Christmas time. For the handbag, I’ve gone for a large tan brown tote bag that can fit a lot of what you buy inside it.

3. Christmas lunch outfit

I regret that I didn’t edge this outfit up more because it’s totally possible to be edgy and Christmassy at the same time.

This base of plaid pants with the red singlet top with a thick black belt is a great start. I went for white sneakers, but for an edge factor, you can swap the sneakers for combat boots. You could even add a leather jacket if so desired.

To accessorize this look, I added a dainty gold necklace, gold hoop earrings, and some round gold sunglasses. A red beret would also be a good addition.

This outfit is actually the one I’m contemplating wearing on Christmas day for our casual family BBQ/potluck lunch.

4. Christmas ball glam

If anyone out there is lucky enough to have a Christmas ball to go to, I’ve got you covered as well. I can’t seem to go past red when it comes to Christmas, but you could also go for an emerald green dress.

I would pair it with nude strappy heels, a statement necklace, and a floral patterned clutch handbag. I doubt we’d need it here, but a white faux fur coat would be my outerwear of choice if needed.

5. Christmas date night outfit

For my Christmas date night, I’m picturing going out to Christmas carols and maybe a drive past a couple of Christmas lights on the way home.

I’ve gone with red corduroy culottes with an oversized white shirt with a black lace bodysuit peeking out from underneath to dress the look up just a little, as it’s still a date night.

I like the look of the nude heels with this outfit, but if you do plan on getting out at the Christmas lights and walking through people’s yards in the dark, I’d go for a much lower heel and way more chunky, so you don’t sink into the ground or fall over.

To accessorize this look, I layered on some gold necklaces and threw on a red crossbody handbag.

That’s all my Christmas outfits for this year. If you’ll also be celebrating in a warm climate, I hope you can pick up some inspiration from these warm-weather holiday outfits. Merry Christmas everyone!
