Getting Into The Christmas Spirit
Merry Christmas in July!
It’s a time to escape the heat and immerse ourselves in the enchantment of twinkling lights, festive decorations, and delightful gatherings.
But what do you wear when the temps are warmer than a crackling fire on Christmas morning?
If you’re lucky enough to reside in a tropical climate, you’re probably a pro at celebrating in lightweight attire.
However, for the rest of us used to a traditional white Christmas, I’ve got a couple of style ideas up my sleeve to ensure your mid-summer holiday extravaganza is nothing short of fabulous!
Why Celebrate Christmas In July?
Christmas in July is the best because there’s no pressure to buy gifts. It’s all the good parts of celebrating like wearing red and green, eating cookies, and watching cheesy Hallmark movies!
I recently went to a Christmas in July celebration which is what prompted this outfit—though no doubt I’d rock red and green on their own, just for fun, at any time of the year.
What To Wear For Christmas in July
To get my outfit into the Christmas in July spirit, I opted for all lightweight (and comfortable!) pieces.
I chose to wear traditional Christmas colors—a red tank top and thrifted olive green shorts. They’re definitely a complete outfit on their own but I wanted to include a pretty white cover-up to add some interest and depth to the look.
From there, accessorizing was simple. I picked a pair of colorful beaded earrings that kept the outfit from looking too Christmas-y, and could easily be worn throughout my day for other activities.
These sandals and sunglasses are some of my most-worn items this summer and I ain’t mad about it! It’s good to have some go-to pieces when the heat turns your brain into mush.

Christmas Is Coming
Celebrating Christmas in July is not only a fun way to feel the holiday spirit in the middle of a heatwave or an excuse to drink hot cocoa, but it’s also a good reminder to get started on your shopping list if you plan to thrift your gifts! It’s never too soon to start stockpiling little (or big!) finds to give away during the holiday season.
