Christmas. The most wonderful time of the year. The most gloriously magical time of the year… and you’re dreading it. It’s not because of the presents, you happen to be an excellent gift giver. It’s not because of the decorations, your apartment has been oozing holiday charm since December 1st.
And it’s most definitely not because you’re anxious about that December bonus. Deep down you know what these pre-holiday nerves are about. We too know what’s causing of these nerves, and it’s not because we built an entire business to combat this exact costume conundrum. So, you might want to cover your ears for this because we’re about to shout out your greatest holiday insecurity to the world: YOU’VE GOT NOTHING TO WEAR!
In retrospect this wasn’t too hard to admit, but now it’s time make the moves to ensure you and your Christmas outfit will have the most wonderful holiday experience this year. Without further ado we present to you a list of the best Christmas costume ideas for women:
1. OppoSuits Women’s Christmas Suit:
Get ready for this shameless plug because the first item on our list of Christmas costume ideas for women is our very own Christmas creation: OppoSuits women’s Christmas suits. With a plethora of colors, designs, and fits you can secure the perfect Christmas outfit without even perusing options two through eight. Sometimes it’s just best to go big or go home, so go big at the office holiday party with this loud yet fashionable ensemble and then go home to your family’s Christmas dinner party while still looking like a vision of Christmas in a suit and jacket combo.
Twinning is Winning
Everything is better when you can share it with a friend. So team up with you boyfriend, husband, nephew or brother and wear matching Christmas Suits to your Christmas party or dinner.
2. Just Something Nice:
We thought that after debuting our product we would start with the basics and work our way up to the more outlandish Christmas costume ideas for women. Why not start off this year with a fresh set of pressed slacks and cozy sweater. Nothing says Christmas like some sort of cable knit, deep navy, turtleneck sweater to help you traverse from the office to any holiday get-together. Sometimes the best course of action is to work with what you have, and if you’ve got anything worthy of a casual dinner party then you’re good to go.
3. Ugly Christmas Sweater:
Let’s throw this list of the best Christmas costume ideas for women way back into the past with an article of clothing you haven’t worn since elementary school: an ugly Christmas sweater. These things were all the rage when you were younger (points if it had little jingling bells on it [extra points if your grandma hand knitted it for you]). You try to block out that party of your childhood, but if Bella Hadid can bring back tiny sunglasses for an entire country, you can bring back ugly Christmas sweaters for one night. And if you’re feeling a little self-conscious about the level of festivity your look is presenting… this is just the beginning.
4. Ugly Hanukah Sweater
Confuse your entire family, including your devout Christian grandmother, by sprucing things up with some religious inclusivity. There’s an entire market of ugly Hanukah sweaters to be explored by none other than the very person who went to Catholic school their entire life! We always thought that red and green went rather well with silver and blue, so why not light the menorah this year without setting an entire evergreen tree on fire by donning a Hanukah sweater.
5. Clara from the Nutcracker:
Who says the list of Christmas costume ideas for women needs to scream green and red pride. What about dressing up in a ruffled nightgown? We see how this might nor fly at a bar, but if you plan on entertaining guests this Christmas then why not find an excuse to host in your pajamas? And you can go as casual or as formal as you want with this costume. Throw on a white slip with a little ribbon or find yourself a costume hemmed with lace trims and braid your hair to your heart’s content. You could even carry around a little nutcracker with you… we suggest hollowing it out and stashing whatever poison you fancy within.
6. Christmas Leg Lamp Skirt:
Perhaps one of the most recognizable movie props of all time, the leg lamp from A Christmas Story, has become a costume favorite for Christmas and Halloween alike, therefore we knew it had to make an appearance on the list of Christmas costume ideas for women. Surprisingly this costume may be the easiest of the bunch. Just gather your yourself a black shirt, yellow skirt, fishnet tights, black heels, and you’re good to go. And if anyone asks you what you are just tell them you’re sorry, but they’re too young for you.
7. A Christmas Present:
Now we’re about to get into the more daring options on the list of Christmas costume ideas for women because this costume is not for the faint hearted, or easily embarrassed, though the blush in your cheeks may complement the wrapping paper color. We’ve seen some pretty genius ways to dress up as a present, but one of the simplest ways it to use an oversized box and wrapping it like a present. You can add some personal touches, like a tag that says “From Your Parents Santa” or decorating it with bows or ribbons. Whatever you do, embrace the box!
8. A Christmas Tree:
If you’re willing to dress up as the object that goes under the tree, then why not go the extra mile and dress up as the tree itself. There are countless of pre-made options available, as well as DIY methods if you’re willing to take the challenge. And while this may be the most extra suggestion on this list (fortunately we didn’t add Mother Mary as an option) you can definitely have fun with this costume even if your friends will never let you live it down.
