Earlier this week, I was mindlessly doing things on my computer (read: online shopping and researching dream vacations I can’t afford) when I glanced at the corner of my screen, at the date in the top toolbar. I had a mini existential crisis and thought: that absolutely can’t be right.

But, in fact, it was. We’re well over halfway through December, and more importantly, Christmas is sneaking up on us very quickly. If you thought you had lots of time to get your holiday looks together, think again, because Christmas Eve is just a few days away (*gasp*)!

However, you know we have you covered. Whether you don’t have time to order a new outfit, don’t want to spend more money, or just want to utilize what’s already in your closet to dress up for the holidays this year, you’re bound to have the items to recreate at least one of these looks. Here are 11 last-minute holiday outfits utilizing pieces you already own—plus a couple of Amazon Prime items if you need that one last thing to complete the look.

Last-Minute Holiday Outfits to Wear This Year

1. Cardigan + slip skirt

Nothing says chic quite like a monochrome moment, especially in winter whites. Pair your favorite cardi with a coordinating slip skirt, and you have an instant effortless look.

2. Wrap sweater + jeans + pumps

A wrap sweater is great because you get the comfort and coziness of any other sweater, but with the added bonus of looking a little more dressy. Pair this with your go-to jeans and dress up the look with some classic pumps.

3. Fair Isle sweater + jeans + beanie

Dressing for the holidays doesn’t have to be boring. Feel as festive as ever in a fun statement sweater paired with your favorite denim and a cozy beanie.

4. Red dress + tights + festive heels

This timeless holiday look is a classic for a reason. Pull that red dress out of your closet and pair it with black tights and festive accessories.

6. Black sweater dress + silver heels

You can’t go wrong with a flattering all-black look, and this one has the added bonus of one of this year’s hottest trends: silver shoes.

7. Satin trousers + knit tank

If you’re looking for something that looks put-together but is also very comfortable (with room for that Christmas dinner), opt for satin trousers and a knit tank—bonus points if it’s metallic as well.

8. Little black dress + sparkly accessories

Do you have a formal party to attend this holiday season? Throw on your trusty LBD and jazz it up with a few sparkly accessories.

10. All black + boots + long ivory coat

Comfortable meets cool in this timeless combo of all black and a long coat. If you want to make it a little more festive, you could always swap the black top for a red or green one.

11. Black top + red midi skirt

A pop of bright red during the holiday season has never failed us. Pair a midi skirt with a simple black long-sleeve top and keep it casual with sneakers, or dress it up with booties or heels.
