Christmas 2020 Outfit Ideas-What To Wear For Christmas

Although it’s hard to believe it is actually December, I don’t think I’ve ever been more ready to celebrate Christmas! One thing I’ve learned in 2020 is that getting dressed puts some pep in my step. So today I’m sharing What to Wear for Christmas at Home whether you’re dressing up or keeping it casual.

If you followed Alicia Wood Lifestyle for very long at all, you know that I am a pretty dressy person by nature. Putting on a darling dress or top with a beautiful detail can truly change my attitude. Either it’s “Look Good, Feel Good” or “Fake it till you make it” it works for me! Does it work for you, too?

Another thing I’ve learned in 2020 is I really appreciate being cozy at home. So no matter if you are wanting a shimmery top or cashmere turtleneck with a faux fur vest with waxed jeans, a cozy sweater with faux leather leggings or want to take it up a notch with a velvet holiday dress this holiday season, the boutique below has some thing for you. I put some styling notes on the items below as well.

Don’t miss this beautiful red velvet dress that is the same cut as a black one I have from last Christmas.  It is timeless and fits like a glove!  I’m thinking of adding this festive top this year.  I also love this feathery sweater dress!  These sparklers with a simple black sweater or red top and these pants in faux leather or suede are a perfect combination of chic and comfort.

And now I’m off to try to wrap up my Christmas shopping. If you still need ideas be sure to visit my Gift Guides. We are trying as best we can to keep them updated! Shipping times are taking longer so don’t delay.  If you don’t find what you’re looking for, be sure to leave a comment below or email me and I’m happy to find it for you!

Happy December!
