If you’ve been around here for a while, you already know how keen we are on the concept of a capsule wardrobe: a closet full of items that can be mixed and matched with one another for an infinite number of combinations and a permanent fix to your “I don’t know what to wear today” conundrum.

The holiday season is inevitably packed with events that involve far more than just the actual day of each holiday. From celebrations with friends to Secret Santa exchanges to walking around looking at holiday lights, it really does turn into an entire season of outfits on its own—which calls for a capsule wardrobe, where you can mix and match pieces together to create an endless number of festive looks for anything that might pop up.

It’s officially time to make the very most of the 2023 holidays, and we’ve made a list, checked it twice, and created a capsule wardrobe that will make sure you’re celebrating in style.

How to Style Your Holiday Capsule Wardrobe

To a formal party

velvet dress (plus) | sequin bag | bow earrings | mary janes

You can’t make it through the holiday season without at least one velvet look, and this green dress is about as holiday-appropriate as a piece can get. Wear it to any formal holiday parties you have on your schedule for a night of endless compliments, and double dip by making it work on New Year’s Eve with the addition of (even more) sparkly accessories. With a pair of silver heels and a sequin bag, you’ll be reminded why it really is the most wonderful time of the year.

To your office holiday party

tweed jacket (plus) | turtleneck (plus) | tweed skirt (plus) | bow clutch | mary janes

Nothing rings in the holiday season quite like a touch of tweed can. Be the best dressed employee at your company’s holiday party with a red tweed jacket, mini skirt, and silver mary janes for a look that’s festive, but still office-appropriate.

To your S.O’s family party

black heels | bow clutch | hair bow | cardigan (plus) | jeans (plus)

The holiday season is stressful enough without the added nerves of going to your S.O’s family party (what do you wear to impress someone’s grandma?). Keep it safe with a classic cardigan, pair of jeans, and festive accessories that’ll scream “favorite in-law.”

To Christmas Eve dinner

bow clutch | grey sweater (plus) | sequin skirt (plus) | bow earrings | black heels

The key to Christmas Eve is to combine comfort with chicness as much as possible. The answer? A sparkly, festive midi skirt that screams “Santa’s coming,” but is comfortable enough to sit on the couch and watch a movie in when dinner’s done. Pair it with a simple sweater and velvet heels for a festive look you can turn to year after year.

To walk around a Christmas market

wool coat (plus) | grey sweater (plus) | jeans (plus) | sequin bag | ballet flats

There’s nothing like a weekend trip to walk around your local Christmas market, but it’s important that comfort takes priority since you’ll be on your feet most of the day. Festive, red ballet flats and a wool coat will make your outfit feel fit for the occasion without needing to cut the day short because you’re uncomfortable.

To a festive dinner with friends

bow top (plus) | sequin bag | bow earrings | leather pants (plus) | mary janes

For the holiday celebration you have planned with your friends, a little leather moment is in order. Pair a festive blouse with faux-leather pants and silver heels for a night of espresso martinis and reminiscing on the year with the girls.
