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 much left over to spend on 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 it can get expensive fast.
To help you look fabulous and still be able to have the budget for all of your holiday cheer, we’ve styled nine full outfits that cost under $100 each. Pair them with shoes and a jacket you already have in your closet and make this holiday season your most stylish one yet without breaking the bank.
Satin trousers? That’s a combination we’ll never say no to. Paired with a festive red sweater, it’s a look that’s perfect for any family or office party you might have scheduled. Pair them with heels if you want to dress it up or your favorite loafers or booties if the vibe of your event is more casual.
A cable-knit sweater dress is the piece of our dreams, emulating cozy winter vibes while still being chic as all hell. With tights and 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 blouse is calling your name. Paired with split-hem pants and chunky loafers, 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 plaid sweater, and with flared trousers and a pearl headband, it can 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, satin number is about the most festive thing we’ve seen. Take it one step further with star earrings and gold rings, and top it off with your favorite pair of heels.
Have an event that’s on the casual side? This silver blouse screams “holiday” without incorporating red or green and is a great alternative to the sweater you might reach for. With black split-hem jeans and a trendy, puffy headband, it’s the definition of holiday chic.
We’d be remiss to get through a holiday season without wearing sequins at least once, and this black sequin maxi dress just might be our piece of choice. With rhinestone earrings and a festive bag, you’ll be the most statement-making person wherever you’re headed.
The holiday season usually incorporates a cozy event or two, but that doesn’t mean it still can’t be in the spirit of the season. This cable-knit set is begging to be worn while sipping hot chocolate on Christmas morning—especially with the touch of red incorporated by our team’s favorite cozy slippers.
There’s nothing like a dress you can turn to for all of the elevated events—your office party, your S.O’s family party—and this one fits the bill. With tights, a sophisticated bag, and your favorite boots, you’ll feel put-together and festive.
