The holidays are many glorious things—exciting, busy, joyful, a little chaotic—but one of the more negative things they are is expensive. With gifts for your family and friends, drinks and dinner for your festive girls’ night, and the million things in between, it’s understandable that there might not be a whole lot of energy left over to spend choosing your holiday outfits.
Holiday clothes are a once-a-year-experience, chock-full of festive colors, sequins, and fun accessories that make you feel excited to dash out of the house to whatever event you have that day. But all of it can get expensive—and before you know it your wallet is empty and your credit card is almost maxed.
To help you look fabulous and still be able to have the budget for all of your holiday cheer, we’ve styled seven full outfits that cost under $100 each. Pair them with a coat you have in your closet and you have a full holiday look, minus the strain on your wallet.
You can never go wrong during the holidays with a reliable red sweater, and when combined with a pair of trousers, you’ll have yourself wondering why you don’t wear the duo more often. Pop on your go-to jewelry pieces and slip a pair of ballet flats, and you’ll be ready to go.
A cable-knit sweater dress is the knitwear of our dreams, emulating cozy winter vibes while still being chic as all hell. With tights, your go-to black boots, and uber-festive bow earrings, it’s a sweet, understated look made for a gift exchange or Christmas morning festivities.
Going out with friends and want to feel festive without being too on the nose? This green polo is calling your name. Paired with wide-leg trousers, it’s a trendier take on holiday dressing that’s perfect for dinner or a holiday happy hour.
Nothing is as quintessentially holiday as a good vintage-inspired sweater, and with flared trousers and a pearl accessories, you’ll be dressed up and party-ready in no time.
If you’re lucky enough to have a more formal holiday event on the docket, a dress is the way to go, and this one-shoulder number would never fail you. Take it one step further with rhinestone drop earrings and if you’re feeling really festive, a sparkly pair of heels.
Have an event that’s on the casual side? This silk blouse screams “holiday” without incorporating red or green, and is a great alternative to the sweater you might reach for. With a great pair of denim jeans and a shoe in a pop of color, this look is both effortless and chic.
We’d be remiss to get through a holiday season without wearing sequins at least once, and this sequin matching set just might be our look of choice. With rhinestone earrings and a festive bag, you’ll be the most statement-making person wherever you’re headed.
