When I think of Christmas, the first thing that comes to mind is green and red. These are standard holiday colors and are present in so many things—decorations, food, and even clothes. During this time, you’ll probably see brands getting in theme with the season and releasing pieces in bright red. Some of you might be turned off by such an intense color but there are many ways you can wear it to fit your style. To give you an easier time, we picked out different types of red pieces from shoes to dresses so you can see how you can incorporate it in your wardrobe.
Mango Slit Long Dress
Heading to fancy Christmas party? Make sure you’re dressed appropriately with this red dress. It has a thigh-high slit and V neckline for just the right amount of drama. My favorite detail is that it isn’t fitted, which means you can eat as much as you want and your dress will give you room to breath. Available at Bonifacio High Street.
ForMe Camisole Top with Ribbon Detail
If you’re like me, you consider yourself the ultimate gift this Christmas. If that’s the case, this top is perfect. It is made of a textured weave and has a square neckline. Let everyone know you’re the present by tying a bow in front. Available at SM Megamall.
Plains & Prints Giblett Culottes
Family reunions and playing around with your little nieces and nephews require you to be hands-free. These pants have a special feature: a built-in belt bag. Keep your phone and other small essentials in the pouch attached to the pants. Don’t worry, it blends in seamlessly so your outfit won’t look bulky. Available at Glorietta 1.

Your holiday closet isn’t complete without a Christmas sweater. If you don’t have one yet, pick this one up. It has ribbed cuffs and hem, and a cute design featuring reindeer, hearts, and trees. Available at SM Makati.

Red can be an intimidating color for most people, so here’s something to ease you into it. You can spruce up any of your outfits with bright red shoes. These flats are perfect for when you have to hop from party to party. It has a pointed toe and gold buckle details. Available at Shangri-La Plaza.

If you need a chic skirt options, look no further. This satin piece is flowy and thin so you’ll feel cool and breezy. If high slits scare you, this one has an underskirt so you feel secure. Pair this with a satin top so you’ll look extra festive. Available at Power Plant Mall.
Longchamp Amazone Bag
Cop a statement bag this holiday season with this red piece from Longchamp. It is made of leather and has a chain strap that keeps it on the edgy side. This is great for family lunches, parties with friends or even for last-minute Christmas shopping. Available at Greenbelt 5.
