Whether you go to church with your family or you get together for a holiday brunch, if you’re trying to figure out what to wear for Christmas, here are some classy Christmas outfits to inspire you. From a ladylike dress to casual chic everyday looks, these are 3 of my favorite types of Christmas outfits to wear for holiday celebrations.
What To Wear to Church on Christmas
If you’re planning to attend Christmas mass, I always recommend opting for a tasteful, appropriate outfit. That means, skip the super short skirts and the low-cut tops. Steer on the side of conservative and demure, as that’s a more respectful way of dressing for such a special occasion.
When dressing for Church, I often ask myself – “What would my Mother think about this outfit?”. If she would approve, then I know I’ve chosen well. That’s why a turtleneck fit-and-flare floral dress (which is currently on sale for 30% OFF) is such a great example of a classy Christmas outfit that is perfect to wear to church.
While the silhouette of the dress fits my shape, it still leaves a lot to the imagination (which keeps it demure). The scalloped edge turtleneck adds a whimsical touch and the floral a-line skirt creates a truly eye-catching feminine vibe. It also has a gorgeous bow accent on the back of the dress with an exposed gold zipper.
To play up the ladylike element of this dress, I paired it with a pearl barrette, button pearl earrings and a long pearl necklace. A tweed handbag and sophisticated designer pumps add the finishing touch.
Honestly – this gorgeous dress is one of my favorite finds for holiday celebrations this season.
What To Wear for Christmas Brunch
Whether you’re going to someone’s home or you’re dining at a restaurant, here are some classy Christmas outfits to wear for Christmas brunch. In my opinion, Christmas brunch is a great occasion to dress up a cozy and casual look.
From a puffer vest worn over a sumptuous cashmere sweater to riding boots and jeans, a relaxed outfit that exudes glamorous touches is a fun way to combine casual elements with dressier accents (like dramatic designer beaded tassel earrings).
Another classy Christmas outfit for brunch is a fitted turtleneck, a cute scarf, and a plaid a-line skirt. I’d pair this look with opaque tights and ballet flats (for comfort) or knee-high boots (for a more dressed up look). This type of outfit is very preppy and exudes a school girl vibe, which is super cute for Christmas celebrations.
