Besides being one of my very favorite 19th century novels, red and black also make for a classic and fail-safe holiday combination. I love incorporating them into my every day wardrobe during the month of December to keep the spirit alive- especially since any day has the possibility of turning into a festive celebration after work! As someone who loves remixing and rewearing clothes, I’m not a huge advocate of buying a red sequined dress you’ll wear to one holiday party and then never again (at least for another twelve months). Instead I opt for the classic combination of red and black, which flows seamlessly from work to happy hour and is seasonally appropriate with just a touch of gold accents (or a decadent amount of gold accents, if that’s your thing). These are two of my favorite black and red outfits, with pieces I’ve worn plenty before and I know without hesitation I will wear again.
