Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone and now it is all about Christmas! I couldn’t be more excited, and I wanted to share that holiday excitement with all of you! Around this time of year, there are always so many events to attend and activities to take part in, so we thought it would be fun to share a few holiday outfit ideas for couples! Let’s get into it…
Decorating the tree
When lounging around at home, everyone wants to be comfortable. With these outfits, I wanted them to be cute but also perfect for staying at home. After you’ve picked out the perfect tree, it’s time to decorate! For my outfit, I chose to wear a simple black turtle neck. It is super cozy, and you can create so many looks with a neutral colored turtle neck. I decided to wear a cream colored sweater vest on top to keep the look trendy. I used to say I didn’t care for sweater vests, but I liked that this one was simple and pretty. Both tops were purchased from H&M. For my bottoms, I wore a favorite pair of denim jeans. These are a medium wash, and I really like that these are slightly baggy because it means a bit more room to move around in, and they’re also on trend. For Tom’s outfit, we also wanted to keep it simple but also very nice. He wore a burgundy crew neck top that is from All Saints. I always feel that these tops can really bring a look together because they’re nicer than a simple t-shirt or long sleeved top, but they aren’t over the top or incredibly fancy. Perfect for the holidays! When it comes to bottoms, Tom prefers the look of slim pants, so he had on a pair of slim black trousers to complete the look.
When I go shopping, I like to look stylish, so I put a bit more effort into this look. For my top, I have on a gray mock neck top. I love how soft it is, but it is not too thick (I tend to get too hot in tops like that). It is the perfect layering piece, so I threw on a favorite coat of mine. It is a navy blue trench coat! I absolutely adore the details on this coat, and I think the color is perfect for winter. Plus, it looks great with pretty much any neutral colored outfit. For my bottoms, I went with a pair of faux leather pants. I bought these at Target last year, and I just think they are so cool and edgy. Leather is always an awesome look for this time of year. For my shoes, I went with a pair of pointed-toe ankle boots from Just Fab. I purchased these last year. I love the color block look, and the nude, cream, and black look so chic together. I love that the heel is not too high either. For Tom’s outfit, he is wearing a simple and comfortable red long sleeved undershirt and a very nice gray half-zip. What we love about this half-zip is that it goes with most of his clothing items, and it always looks very smart. It is also really great quality! He purchased this from Crew Clothing, and we believe it was well worth it. On the bottom, he wore a pair of slim navy blue trousers. When you find a style of pants that you really love, it is a good idea to own a few pairs. Navy blue and black are colors that really do go with everything, and they are a great item to reach for daily. Lastly, Tom decided that his Lacoste sneakers looked best. These shoes are great for most occasions because they look much nicer than athletic sneakers, but they aren’t as fancy as dress shoes.
Looking at Christmas lights
Depending on where you live, winter can get pretty cold. For most people, this time of year means layering, and if you plan on going out to see any Christmas lights, you may want to bundle up! For both of our outfits, we prioritized comfort and warmth. I chose to wear a favorite white v-neck tee as my first layer (but truly any cozy top will do). On top, I wore my new half-zip fleece. I purchased it at a store in England called M & Co, and it is from a really great outdoor brand called Regatta. I couldn’t believe I got it for only 15 pounds! It is so warm and once again, a perfect layering piece. On top, I had on my double breasted collared coat. I purchased this before I traveled back to England. I thought it would be a nice coat to wear most days, and I really love it. It went with all of my outfits and kept me warm too! For extra warmth, I chose to wear a big scarf that has a very nice pattern on it. I love the shapes and the different shades of blue. Scarves are a must for me when it’s cold, especially with this coat because it does have a lower cut in the front. A chunky scarf fills up that open space perfectly. I also had on a cute little headband that was so soft and will definitely keep my ears warm. For my shoes, I chose to go with my London Rebel lace-up boots in the color black. I wore these most days when I was in England and they were so comfortable to walk in. I love the different material toward the back of the shoe, and I just think they look super cool. For Tom’s outfit, he had on a long-sleeved under shirt and his new half-zip fleece on top. His is a beautiful emerald green color and it is from the same brand as mine. His was purchased for only 10 pounds! It was a definite steal for us and we couldn’t be happier with them! On top of that, he decided to wear a nicer coat that he purchased from John Lewis. It is navy blue, a color that I think looks amazing on him, and it is such a great piece that adds style to any look. He also wore the same trousers as the previous outfit. For his shoes, he chose the same pair of Lacoste sneakers.
Christmas Eve dinner
If you have a fancy holiday dinner coming up, Tom and I have got you covered! For my outfit, I am wearing my new favorite top! Tom actually bought it for me from a new favorite store of mine called Mango. This color is just stunning and lately Tom and I have been obsessed with it. I love the classic look of the lines going down this top, and it also has a mock neck which I love. Over that, I had on a gorgeous white sleeveless blazer. I love the length of this as well, because it ends mid-thigh. I think it is unique, and the contrast of the dark green underneath looks stunning. For my bottoms, I had on some black flare pants. I love these because they are so flattering and comfortable! They remind me of 70’s fashion! Flares are back in style, and that makes me so so happy! I decided to wear my black pointed-toe ankle boots to keep the professional and chic vibe going. To complete this look, I put on a pretty headband with little pearl accents. For Tom’s look, he is wearing a caramel colored crew neck top. I bought this for Tom at H&M. The color is a bit different than what he owned already, so I thought it would be a nice addition to his wardrobe. It is very flattering on him, and once again very smart. For his bottoms, he is wearing a slim pair of black trousers. Since holiday dinners tend to be a bit more upscale than your average dinner, Tom wore his brown dress shoes.
Holiday movie marathon
There is nothing more fun than Christmas pajamas! I tend to buy new ones every year (along with fuzzy socks of course)! If you are into all of the best Christmas movies and you plan on watching every single one, you’ll want to wear the cutest and most festive pajamas! For my outfit, I am wearing a green Christmas tree top. I bought this at Old Navy last year, and I love that it is a bit more subtle, yet still festive. For my pajama bottoms, I am wearing a classic pair of plaid pants. The colors are perfect for the holidays! Tom’s pajamas are somewhat similar. For his top, he is wearing a cozy dark red long-sleeved top. It isn’t too tight or too loose, it is perfect for sleeping, or of course, a Christmas movie marathon! His pajama bottoms are also plaid, but with slightly different colors. Also, I would recommend completing both of these looks with fuzzy Christmas socks because how could you not?!
The final two looks! We wanted to share a very dressed up option because I always enjoy getting fancy. For my outfit, I am wearing this gorgeous red dress that I purchased from Lulus a while back. I really love the bright red color, and the lace design all over is beautiful! The little ruffles here and there add something fun and girly to the dress as well. I absolutely love midi dresses, as some of you may know. They are always so classy, and I prefer them over mini or maxi dresses always! I went with my go-to pair of black strappy block heels because they really do bring this look together. For Tom’s dressed up look, he went with a gorgeous white button up top. The detail going along the buttons in the front is very stylish with this kind of top for men, and he wore a burgundy and black vest on top. This color is a favorite of his, and it is always a popular and trendy one for fall and winter. There is even a subtle print on the vest, which adds something special to it. It was purchased on Amazon and is really great quality as well. We were very impressed when it arrived! On the bottom, he wore a pair of slim black pants. It goes best with the look, and the contrasting colors of black and white really looks wonderful. For the shoes, Tom went with a pair of black dress shoes. These are similar to his brown ones, however these are best for very fancy events.
Thank you so much for reading today’s post! I normally do these kinds of posts on my own, but I asked Tom to join in this time, and I am grateful that he said yes!
