A green top is a must in any Christmas capsule wardrobe. This stretch mock turtleneck is more suitable for slightly warmer temperatures. Its tight fit allows you to combine it with looser-fitting skirts and pants.

6. Stretchy Ribbed Knit Skirt

Speaking of solid green skirts, this one is super flattering when combined with a chunky sweater for that freezing winter climate. Add a tight pair of thigh high heeled boots to complete the look. Stay warm while looking chic.

7. Red Satin Blouse

Regardless of the occasion, a satin button down shirt is always appropriate. The sheen the material gives will add an elegant flare to any outfit without having to put in much thought. Go for a green or darker red shade if you prefer. You can also invest in a higher quality silk blouse like this one.

8. Red High Waisted Pants

High wasted pants are universally flattering since they cinch in the waist to create a more symmetrical hourglass shape. A red pair is mandatory during the holiday season! Pair them with your red chunky sweater, fitted turtleneck or satin blouse for a monochromatic look. They go with everything!

A loose lightweight turtleneck is a more casual piece that pairs great with tighter bottoms. Slip it on when you need to be out and about. This version in a dark red shade is timelessly elegant.

When layering in the cold months, it is crucial to play with textures. An A-line faux leather skirt is a great beginner piece while the darker color adds sophistication. Wear this with any sweater like with the one mentioned above.

Christmas is all about spreading joy and presents wrapped neatly in little bows. Why not extend this to your wardrobe by adding a blouse with a neck bow tie. The pussy bow is a classic clothing piece and will never go out of style.

16. Red Midi Satin Skirt

A midi satin skirt is a piece that is very versatile. The juxtaposition between delicate satin cloth and a coarse sweater is a modern chic look that just works.

17. Fitted Mock Neck T-Shirt

If you are in the warmer climates, then just go for a mock turtleneck top without the long sleeves. The fitted silhouette is more elegant than a regular t-shirt so you can still take part in the holiday fashion.

18. High Waisted Plaid Pants

Lastly, a green plaid pair of high waisted pants adds a fun print to your predominantly solid color wardrobe. This will go with all of your tops since the pattern is colorful itself. Pair this with elegant sock booties to complete the outfit. A red plaid alternative is available here.
