What are your plans for the holidays this year? Christmas is still up in the air for my family right now but I’m hopeful we’ll be able to manage at least a small and casual get together.

Nevertheless, I always enjoy celebrating the holidays with some special holiday outfits, so I’m already planning what I’m going to wear. I encourage you to join me in celebrating the season with something special. There’s nothing like slipping on holiday clothes to get you in the holiday spirit. I’m sure you’ll agree that we can all use any and everything that cheers us up this year.

Ten Holiday Outfits You'll Love No Matter What Your Holiday Plans Are. 1

Here are ten holiday outfits you can use for inspiration this year. Each outfit features something velvet because velvet is a classic holiday fabric and feels so good to wear. I’ve included five dressy options and five casual options so you can enjoy dressing for the holidays no matter what your plans are this year.

Tag me, @katykozee, on Instagram if you post your special holiday outfit for this year. I’d love to see what everyone is wearing!

Holiday Outfit #1 – Dressed Up Velvet Leggings

Everlane The Clean Silk Relaxed Shirt // SPANX Velvet Leggings

I don’t know how Spanx leggings manage to be super comfortable and enhance my figure, but somehow they do it. This is the only brand of premium leggings I’m willing to pay a little bit more for. Their velvet leggings are made of soft high-quality velvet material (no see through here!). Dress them up with a silk tunic, suede flats, and some statement jewelry.

Holiday Outfit #2 – Casual Velvet Leggings

Of course, these leggings also look great as a casual option with a warm over-sized sweater and my favorite comfortable booties.

Holiday Outfit #3 – Dressed Up Velvet Shirt

Velvet Long Sleeve Button Down Casual Top //

A long and loose-fitting velvet shirt has been my holiday outfit go-to for years. This shirt is similar and can be worn tucked in or with the shirttails out. For a more dressed-up look, tuck the shirt into snakeskin jeans and add a jeweled belt and velvet pumps. Add some shine with this Cubic Zirconia necklace and stud earrings set.

Holiday Outfit #4 – Casual Velvet Shirt

Jabasic Women Slip on Loafers // Betsey Johnson Weave and Sew Multi Woven Heart Illusion Necklace // Sterling Silver Pressed Flower Teardrop Earrings // Velvet Long Sleeve Button Down Casual Top

This velvet shirt really shines when worn with jeans and casual loafers. Wear it loose and untucked for casual elegance. Add some funky jewelry because it’s the holidays after all!

Holiday Outfit #5 – Dressed Up Velvet Jacket

I have a velvet jacket that I got from the Gap in 2000 that I pull out every holiday season. The classic cut means that it’s always in style and it’s a perfect topper for both dressed-up looks and casual outfits.

You’ll wear this classic velvet blazer from J. Crew for years as well. Pair it with this slinky halter-top and flowy pants. Add silver accents and some classic velvet slingbacks.

Holiday Outfit #6 – Casual Velvet Jacket

This velvet jacket also works great with more casual outfits. This outfit would be perfect for a morning brunch with friends or a socially distant outdoor gathering. You’ll stay warm with the jacket and the cozy cashmere sweater. Add leopard-print accessories to tie the outfit together.

Holiday Outfit #7 – Dressed Up Velvet Skirt

This velvet skirt from Amazon is under $25.00 and can be worn so many ways. I love the longer midi length and swingy pleats. They feel so elegant. Keep the elegant feeling by adding a silk blouse, wide belt, pearl earrings and collar necklace, and velvet pumps with a nice heel.

Holiday Outfit #8 – Casual Velvet Skirt

This velvet skirt looks stunning when worn casually with a warm wool sweater and suede boots. The gray sweater and black books really make the blue color of the skirt stand out.

Holiday Outfit #9 – Dressed Up Velvet Kimono

Indulge your inner Stevie Nicks with this silky kimono with burned velvet flower accents. Use it to add some spice to the classic velvet little black dress and round-toe pumps. Shiny crystal earrings and necklace add to the dressed-up bohemian look. (Dressed-up bohemian is totally a thing, right?)

Holiday Outfit #10 – Casual Velvet Kimono

Throw the velvet kimono over this almost unbelievably comfy two-piece velour sweatsuit and you’ll be the star of your Zoom Christmas Breakfast. There’s no need to change out of your bedroom slippers when they’re these memory-foam slippers with old-time movie star glamour.
