‘Tis the season for holiday outfits! Whether you’re searching for Thanksgiving outfits, Christmas outfits, Hanukkah outfits, New Year’s Eve outfits, or just want to add a few festive accessories to your wardrobe, this post is for you! If you’re an email subscriber, you know that each season we release spring/summer and fall/winter capsule wardrobes full of the must-have pieces to help you fill those wardrobe basics checklists.

Shop the Holiday Capsule Wardrobe
We’ve included a wide range of dressy and casual options for whatever kind of celebration you have planned. Even though many of these are specialty pieces, you’ll be able to wear them year after year. Find all of the links to these items below…
Tops & Sweaters
I own half of these tops/sweaters and they’re all wonderful additions to your holiday wardrobe! The green Farm Rio top and blue one-shoulder sweater are both such pretty, vibrant colors that look great on all skin tones. The black velvet halter top is a nice, sexy option that you can wear under a blazer or jacket. The burgundy sweater has the prettiest embellishment details. And the black sequin sweater is perfect if you want to add a little sparkle without going over the top!
Dresses & Bottoms
Whether you’re looking for a dressy or casual option for your holiday party, these dresses should cover your needs. How gorgeous would that green dress be for a holiday wedding?! If you’re looking for more casual options, I linked some below.
I included a pleated skirt, silky skirt, and a leather skirt that will easily pair with pieces in your closet. But I linked some fun, sequined options below too!
These sequin joggers are SO good…you can easily dress them up or down. I love the deep navy color of the velvet Veronica Beard pants. And any of these jeans are a wonderful choice. Tip: If you’re ordering the black coated jeans, make sure you size up TWO full sizes.
There are a lot of options here so choose one that really calls to you and that will elevate all of your holiday looks. The black wrap coat comes in a couple of colors. The velvet Veronica Beard blazer matches the pants from above. The sequin blazer is a fun option. The deep green shearling coat or black faux fur jacket will add some fun texture to a look. And I love the deep burgundy color of the affordable leather jacket. I also just bought a gorgeous new puffer that you can see in action here and shop the whole look here.
Accessories & Jewelry
Metallics are really having a moment right now so this Strathberry bag will be something you can wear through the winter too for a perfect, trendy pop. If you’re looking for something more affordable, the Rebecca Minkoff envelope bag is a great option and SO versatile!
I shared quite a few jewelry options at different price points but if you’re going to buy one thing, I highly recommend a pair of statement earrings. I also love both rings…they’re by two of my favorite jewelry brands, Monica Vinader and Dean Davidson. You can use code EBUSBEE20 to get 20% off at Monica Vinader and code BUSBEEDD15 at Dean Davidson for 15% off!
Boots & Shoes
All of these shoes are lovely options for the holidays but the most versatile are the Stuart Weitzman sock booties! I’ve owned mine for years and wear them with everything from jeans and pants to skirts and dresses. For a trendy option, try the Mary Jane flats. Or if you’re looking for something super glam and luxe, the Mach & Mach heels are gorgeous!
