Budget Friendly Holiday Outfits

Budget Friendly Holiday Outfit Ideas

I love scouring the web this time of year to find holiday looks at all price points. I think, in particular, in the year since 2020 and 2021 when we were largely robbed of the opportunity to get dressed up for the holidays, I have loved embracing extra fun with holiday dressing.

For this year’s budget friendly holiday outfit posts, I turned to Bloomingdale’s which is one of my go-to retailers, particularly for fun pieces for the holiday season. Right now, through tomorrow, you can take 25% off a large selection of items at bloomingdales.com as part of their Black Friday holiday sale so it is a great time to grab the items featured here on sale!

Budget Friendly Holiday Outfit Ideas

Everything I’ve curated in today’s post is under $300 and I can’t wait to hear what you end up picking up on sale.

1. Aqua Ruched Satin Midi Dress

I have shopped the Bloomingdale’s private label brand Aqua for ages – you’ve heard me sing its praises for a long time, right? This beautiful midi dress looks more expensive than its price tag and the burgundy color is so gorgeous for this time of year. If burgundy isn’t for you, there are some other color options as well.

2. Aqua Feather Trimmed Mini Dress

I adore feather trims this time of year. I have a feather trimmed tank, feather trimmed dresses and I think this little mini would be so cute with fun accessories and paired with tights and pumps. 

3. Aqua Blazer Dress

A blazer dress is a timeless classic and this one looks nice and elevated and fancy enough for holiday gatherings like your office party. 

4. Bardot Velvet Mini Dress

This dress had me at velvet and jeweled straps! You could wear this for a variety of events and the fit looks like it’ll be so flattering.

5. Velvet Bow Heels

How perfectly holiday ready are these heels? They come in a few color ways as well.

6. Sam Edelman Suede Ankle Boots

Every girl needs a great suede ankle boot for cold nights to pair with a good pair of tights and your holiday outfit.

7. Badgley Mischka Crystal Buckle Heels

These heels come in so many good colors including a very festive red and a gorgeous holiday green. The black are classics of course but I do love a pop of colors in a shoe around the holidays personally.

8. Pearl Stud Earrings

When wearing feathers, sequins or other fancier fare, I always keep my jewelry extra simple. I love these dainty pearl earrings that are such a good sale price for Black Friday weekend. These would make a lovely gift or stocking stuffer, too.

9. Aqua Tweed Jacket

This little jacket looks like a couple I own and you see me wear all the time. It is a great price – particularly with the Black Friday promo! 

If you have more casual holiday gatherings, this would be so perfect paired with a silk tank and a satin pant or dark wash jean.

And loving this similar one in red for the holidays in particular!

10. Eliza J Sequin Fringe Dress

This dress just looks like it would be SUCH fun to wear. The sequins! The fringe! I want a martini and this dress and a dance floor, stat. 

11. Aqua Slip Skirt

How gorgeous is the deep blue color of this skirt? I think it makes for a nice change from traditional holiday colors and is beautifully winter-y.

12. Aqua Blazer

A black blazer is in my rotation all year round but especially for the holidays. I love the oversized look of this one to pair with a slip dress or over a slinky tank like the one below.

14. Aqua Rhinestone Strap Cowl Neck Silk Tank

I love that this tank looks more expensive than its $68 price tag. And the back? It is so good! I would pair this with a great oversized black blazer to take off and then with a pair of faux leather pants. This feather trim tank is a fun one, too (I own it in white!)
