9 Holiday Outfits for Celebrating Somewhere Warm

Ah, December. The season for warm drinks, cashmere sweaters and cozy nights by the fire—unless you live anywhere where 50º calls for a scarf. Growing up surrounded by palm trees and year-round beach weather, winter was more of a concept than an actual season for me. During the holiday season, I'd switch out cashmere for cotton and wool for linen—anything "knit" would reduce me to a puddle.

This posed quite the conundrum for my festive spirit, but ever the Capricorn, I found a way to make it work. To bring a little festivity to warmer climates, it's all about finding ways to make warm-weather pieces feel especially fancy. The right color palette, breathable fabrics, airy silhouettes, and a little (or a lot) of sparkle goes a long way. Add a red lip and you'll be spreading holiday cheer wherever you are!

Read on for sunny weather–ready festive outfits, and shop the pieces after for a white-hot holiday.
