Hot Pink For Holiday

2723

I really do love jewel tones for the holidays. There’s something about those deep, rich hues that just seem so festive. Emerald greens, deep bordeaux — they’re gorgeous and elegant, and I’m always happy to wear them.

But I do love a fresh twist, and — hear me out — a vibrant fuchsia (if you’re fancy) or hot pink (if you’re not) is capturing my heart this holiday season.

While hot pink is vibrant enough to stand up to (or pair with) any jewel tones, it's a color that wouldn't feel out of place in spring or summer.

This statement-making color is a party personified. And while it’s vibrant enough to stand up to (or pair with) any jewel tones, it’s a color that wouldn’t feel out of place in spring or summer, either (and I’ll bet it’ll feel unexpected and fun in the fall too). Hot pink is a year-round kind of color (I mean, just ask the Barbiecore lovers).

My Almost Casual Holiday Outfit: A Hot-Pink Top + Boyfriend Jeans

I appreciate how hot pink pairs so well with light-wash jeans — there's a playful sort of easiness to the pairing.

See? FUN.

I also appreciate how hot pink pairs so well with light-wash jeans — there’s a playful sort of easiness to the pairing.

Nice jeans + fancy-ish accessories = an almost casual holiday outfit.
These light-wash jeans are my favorite pair from Risen (read: super-affordable), & I love that they have a high rise but are still solidly a boyfriend style.

Warning: These boyfriend jeans from Risen are all but sold out. They are, without a doubt, my favorite pair of Risen jeans (read: super-affordable), and I love that they have a high rise but are still solidly a boyfriend style. And the wash is perfection. I’m going on and on not to taunt you (promise) with sold-out denim, but as a tiny preview of what’s to come: Social Threads is restocking them…soonish. January? I think? Anyway, a restock is coming, and I’ll be sure to sound the alarm.

That sounds funny. Ring the bell?

Shout from the rooftops?

Light the lamp?

Whatever. I’ll tell ya.

These boyfriend jeans from Risen have the perfect light wash.

6 More Holiday Outfit Ideas Featuring Hot Pink

While a hot-pink top + boyfriend jeans are an easy win, there are a few other outfit ideas I’ve stumbled across…and now can’t stop thinking about. Here we go:

1. Make A Sweater Dress Fancy With Statement Boots

Making a sweater dress fancy for holiday parties w/ hot-pink statement boots is a fun trick that's both warm + festive.

While any statement boots would work here, these hot-pink boots are TON of fun. I have an old pair of tall snakeskin boots (in bright blue), and I’ve worn them almost every winter with a long skirt (or maxi) dress. This is a fun trick that’s both warm and festive, but I haven’t yet tried them with a sweater dress.

If I didn’t already own a pair of wildly fun statement boots, I’d order this hot pink pair before you could say FUCHSIA.

2. Perk Up Jeans & Sweaters With Pink Party Shoes

These feather-trim heels are a good example of how hot pink fits riiiiiight into holiday & New Year's Eve outfits.

Scotti and I are on the same hot-pink wavelength…and her outfit above (those feather-trim heels — swoon) is a good example of how hot pink fits riiiiiight into holiday and New Year’s Eve outfits. This would also be a really cute Valentine’s Day outfit too.

3. Hot Pink On Pink

Love how the pink velvet pants + pink lace top balance each other out, resulting in a pretty & festive look.

I’m a sucker for a good monochromatic moment, and this is one of the best (especially since each piece would be a standout on its own too). Love how the velvet pants and lace top balance each other out, resulting in a really pretty and festive look.

4. Lingerie Vibes: Silky Pink Skirt

I love the idea of pairing this pink silk skirt with a deliciously drapey cashmere sweater & tall boots.

While the matching camisole is an obvious win (and would definitely reinforce the boudoir vibes here), I love the idea of pairing this silk skirt with a deliciously drapey cashmere sweater and tall boots.

5. Hot Pink + Faux Leather

There's something naughty/nice about the combo of a hot-pink top & faux-leather pants. It's a more playful, flirty combo than the expected red + black.

There’s something very naughty/nice about the combination of a hot-pink top and leather (or faux-leather) pants. It’s a more playful, flirty pairing than the expected red and black.

6. Head-To-Toe Hot (Pink)

A hot-pink dress is a happy, flirty color + so versatile that it'll give your old LBD a run for its money.
