How to Wear a Red Sweater – 3 Outfit Ideas

December 9, 2019

I love this red sweater form Old Navy, and a festive piece like this is perfect for the holidays. I’ve worn it several times in several different ways, so today I thought I would share some ideas on how to wear a red sweater.

Red Sweater Casually

I styled my red sweater two different ways with jeans. The first looks is a little more casual with a flannel underneath and my favorite Sorel boots. For the second look, I added a plaid blanket scarf, leopard beanie, and red heels to slightly dress it up. Either look would be so perfect for a more casual holiday party. The first would be so great to go look at Christmas lights, ice skating, or any of those other fun quintessential winter activities.

Red Sweater Dressed Up

To totally switch up the whole vibe of the outfit, I paired my red sweater with a leopard midi skirt. I love leopard and red together, especially for the holidays. A red heel really has been super versatile for me this holiday season too! I recently shared them with my fun pom pom sweater here.
