Hallmark Christmas Movie Outfits – Create Your Own

Hallmark Christmas Movie Outfits from Your Closet

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you already know that I’ve been consuming a steady diet of Hallmark Christmas movies for the past month. Yes, they’re cheesy and predictable and all follow basically the same plot formula but I. JUST. CAN’T. GET. ENOUGH. Do you know what else I can’t get enough of? Hallmark Christmas movie outfits! I guess the title sort of gave that away.

One of the things that I started noticing this year is that the outfits in these movies are almost as formulaic as the plots. Well, you already know that I LOVE a good outfit formula. As a matter of fact, I swear by them for getting dressed every day. So I thought it would be fun to break down two of my favorite Hallmark Christmas movie outfits for you today using pieces you probably already have in your closet.

Have you ever noticed that the women in these movies are on like, a three day trip and then get stranded somewhere for weeks on end yet still have endless cute outfits to wear? They must have some kind of magic suitcase.

But I digress. I can’t even tell you how much I eat up every single one of these movies – flaws and all. It’s totally part of the appeal. Now let’s get to the real reason why you’re here – Hallmark Christmas movie outfits!

Outfit #1 – Small Town Street Scene

Let’s start with the iconic small town street scene outfit. Every Hallmark Christmas movie has some variation of this classic outfit formula.

Now, let’s break it down!

  1. Pom Pom Hat – Every character gets to wear a hat at least once and the magic of the movies is that they NEVER have hat hair! What is that? This hat comes in 27 colors!
  2. Plaid Scarf – A festive plaid scarf is as predictable as the two main characters who start out hating each other falling madly in love just in time for Christmas. Here’s my blanket scarf.
  3. Warm Gloves (and an Empty Coffee Cup) – Is it just me or do the obviously empty coffee cups in these movies drive anyone else crazy? It’s totally obvious that there’s nothing in them and it makes me kind of sad. I want the actors to actually have something hot to drink in those cups. (For the record, my cup has hot coffee. I couldn’t do myself like that.) And because leopard is a neutral, here’s a great pair of gloves.
  4. Wool Coat – All the wool coats in these movies are TO DIE FOR! You’ll see every color and style – they’re as much a staple as a Balsam Hill product placement! If you’re looking for a colorful wool coat like the one I wore in this post,  I highly recommend this one.
  5. Super Cute Trendy Boots – That would also get completely ruined in real snow and slush. But they’re cute, right? Here’s my over the knee pair.

Outfit #2 – Trimming the Tree

Next up, we have the trimming the tree outfit. Practically every Hallmark Christmas movie has at least one scene where the lead characters trim a tree together.

Here’s the breakdown!

  1. Festive Colored Sweater – Every good Hallmark Christmas movie outfit starts with a sweater in a festive holiday color. For my outfit, I picked this green wrap sweater inspired by Candace Cameron Bure’s wrap sweater in “A Shoe Addict’s Christmas” and layered it over a nude cami.
  2. Delicate Necklace – Have you ever noticed that many of the main female leads where the same necklace with every outfit throughout the movie? I picked this diamond chip necklace for mine because it goes with everything.
  3. Empty Coffee Mug – Sigh, the bane of my existence is back! The empty coffee cup makes its way into the indoor scenes too. Just give these poor actors something real to drink, I’m begging you!
  4. Skinny Jeans – Great fitting pairs of skinny jeans are almost as prevalent as ex-boyfriends who stayed behind and work noble professions in small towns. Here’s a link to mine – the jeans, not the ex-boyfriend!
  5. Super Cute Trendy Boots – That I would no way wear to trim a tree unless I wanted to break my neck on the step ladder. (For the record, I actually wear my slippers.)

This is one of my all time favorite Hallmark Christmas movie outfits! A velvet bodysuit is paired with an amazing plaid skirt and the most drool worthy heels ever (that I only wish I could afford).
