Before I start sharing dressier outfits for the holidays, I wanted to showcase a casual festive outfit. This monochrome outfit is not over the top, but it makes a statement and is comfortable!

Many Christmas outfits at this time of year feature bright red, but if you want a more subtle look try other shades in the red family. I decided to go for a monochrome look with this outfit, featuring an incredibly soft LOFT tee in a brick shade and merlot cords and booties. I thought monochrome outfits were strictly for the runway, but this look was surprisingly attainable! The key to a monochrome outfit seems to be selecting shades in the same family that still contrast each other.

I actually wore this outfit for Thanksgiving, but I think it would work well for low-key Christmas gatherings as well. In a happy coincidence all the ladies at Thanksgiving lunch wore coordinating hues, so of course, we took a lot of pictures! I kept my accessories simple with my James Avery heart necklace, but if your occasion calls for more sparkle, add a statement necklace or earrings!

What types of holiday events will you be going to this year? Which ones are you most excited about? Let me know in the comments!
