During the winter season, it can be difficult to find the ideal outfit to feel cozy and chic for every occasion. In this post, I’m sharing 8 outfit ideas for almost every end-of-the-year event and activity. Whether you’re dressing up for holiday parties or keeping cozy indoors, take inspiration from these easy ensembles to wear this December.

These holiday outfits are ideal for cold weather, but you can easily adapt them if you live in a warm or very cold climate. For warmer weather, choose light-weight knits and skip any bulky coats and tights. For colder weather, layering is key. Add a thermal shirt and tights underneath your outfit for extra warmth. Finish your look with lots of cold-weather accessories like a beanie or beret, a pair of thick gloves and a cashmere scarf. Lastly, choose heavier knits and jackets.

1. Ice Skating

Stay warm on the rink in an oversized puffer jacket, thick leggings and your favorite knitwear. Add a beanie for extra warmth and a pair of lace up boots to complete your skating ensemble.


2. Christmas Shopping

Check off every item on your holiday shopping list in a stylish, comfortable outfit. Start with a stretchy pair of jeans and a soft sweater. Layer with a long coat to keep you warm, and a pair of chunky boots that are comfortable to walk in.


3. Office Holiday Party

For office holiday parties, a turtleneck sweater, blazer jacket and slip skirt make an effortless ensemble. Finish your look with your a pair of high heel boots and statement earrings — I personally love these dangly pearl ones for the holiday season.


4. City Stroll

For a snowy stroll outdoors, a turtleneck sweater and a pair of thick leggings are the perfect foundation. Add extra warmth with a shearling-lined jacket and a pair of water-resistant boots. A thick beanie, gloves and scarf will complete your look while keeping you cozy.


5. Cozy At Home

A soft sweater + comfy pants + a pair of faux fur slippers = the perfect combo to keep cozy at home. Whether you’re trimming the tree or doing some holiday baking, you’ll feel chic, yet comfortable in this look.


6. Holiday Happy Hour

For your next holiday happy hour, a turtleneck sweater and mini skirt are the perfect combo. Layer up your look with a blazer or short coat and a pair of black tights. Finish your look with knee-high boots and your favorite shoulder bag. Cheers!


7. Christmas Party

Celebrate the holidays in this festive fit. A knit black dress with a pair of knee-high boots is perfect for parties during the cold season. For extra glam, add a pair of statement earrings. Lastly, throw on a long wool coat to stay warm.


8. New Year’s Eve Celebration

Look chic while ringing in the new year in this easy outfit (you likely have everything in your closet already). Pair a black turtleneck with a flirty mini skirt. Elevate your look with a pair of trendy satin pumps and your favorite accessories.
