It’s the holiday season, which means if you need us, we’ll likely be on our couch with a hot chocolate, a cozy blanket, and an extra-cheesy holiday rom-com. No, we might not be staying in the English countryside swooning over Jude Law, but we can always prepare for the opportunity by taking ideas from our favorite rom-com characters’ outfits. 

From a holiday matinee to a happy hour and every December moment in between, we’re taking a look at our favorite holiday rom-com outfits of all time—and making them wearable for 2022. No matter what the season brings, you’ll have a look in your back pocket that’s festive, fun, and definitely deserving of a meet-cute of your own.


The Holiday

Ah yes, the quintessential airport outfit. Maneuvering through snow banks in impractical heels and three bags of luggage is a commitment to fashion we can only aspire to—but for Amanda Woods, her packing paid off. It’s almost as if she knew she was starring in a rom-com alongside Jude Law. You too can play the part in a shearling coat, dark jeans, and white turtleneck—and don’t forget the black sunnies.

Last Christmas

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a cheesy romance movie, and this one exceeds our expectations. The London setting. The on-screen chemistry between Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding. The versatile leopard coat. Did we mention Henry Golding’s in this? And while we won’t give any spoilers, here’s an obvious one: This coat will never break your heart. How could it? Pair it with a holiday dress to impress your date who is totally alive and well. Totally.

Love Actually

Are those wedding bells we hear? Oh no, just the chorus of compliments on your bridal-esque holiday outfit. Feathers and winter whites are always on-trend, and are a perfect alternative to more expected holiday colors. Experiment with a sheer dress à la Juliet in Love Actually, or make it monochrome with a feather crop top and tailored pants. To complete the look, add a clutch and some party-worthy heels.

Not all of us will be able to successfully reunite with our soulmate through the power of destiny and a $5 bill, but what we can do is dress like Kate Beckinsale in this Central Park scene. A mini skirt and knitted sweater are the essentials, and a red scarf and an obliviousness to New York wind chills pull it all together. Ice skating skills not required.

The Family Stone

Meredith may have had a hard time winning over her soon-to-be in-laws (oh, the second-hand embarrassment), but her prim and polished outfits always measured up. Since it’s the holidays, we’re taking inspiration from this suit skirt and adding festive flair with a variety of texture. Pair your blazer with a pair of leather pants, a festive velvet clutch, and classic heels.
