If a layer of black mesh underneath isn’t your thing, play it a little safer by pairing with a pretty green dress—like this silky panties—with all-black accessories and a black wool coat. Timeless!

Take your favorite red pieces and add some brown (we love a faux fur!) to cozy up a sexy color scheme. The bold red will remain the focal point of your ensemble, but the brown will tone it down just a bit.

Pink and green was one of my favorite color combinations as an interpolation, and it actually works really well for the holidays. If you’re still feeling too summery, you can always add a deeper green or red accessory to offset the lighter shades.

If it feels difficult to coordinate the two shades together, choose a piece that already contains both, like this dress from the Reformation which you can definitely wear all year round.

If you like the green and black combination, but want something that is one small More glam, opt for green and silver this holiday season. Dark, velvety green goes so well with bright, sparkly silver, so this really is a color combo you can’t go wrong with.

Amazon has so many sparkly accessories at the moment, but this blingy bag has to be one of my favourites. It looks so similar to Cult Gaia’s $400 style, but only costs $30.

Forget red, white, and blue—for the holidays, you can’t beat a classic red, white, and black ensemble. The whole atmosphere is relatively neutral until you add that red click. It’s festive in all the right ways.
