From walking in a winter wonderland to Meet the Parents-style family parties, we’ve got nine celeb looks that will inspire romance this holiday season. Let Rashida Jones, Miranda Kerr, Solange Knowles and other stylish celebs take the pressure off when it comes to what to wear under the mistletoe.
Rashida Jones Melts Hearts in Metallics
Funny lady Rashida Jones proved that you don’t have to wear a skirt to look polished and romantic. At the Wantiful Art of Giving event, she dressed up in this season’s metallics, wearing a black embellished Vena Cava jacket with a burgundy silk blouse and steely blue trousers—both by Theory. Her silver cap-toe pumps gave the look another touch of subtle shimmer.

Emma Roberts mixed fabrics and textures for a luxe look at the opening of the Rag & Bone store in L.A. Boyfriend Evan Peters looked like he approved of her high-waisted pencil skirt with on-trend leather and brocade, which she matched with gold pumps and an antiqued gold clutch. Weatherize this look for winter with tights and a black blazer.
Miranda Kerr Turns Up the Heat in Layers
While out and about in Manhattan, Miranda Kerr wore layering at its sexiest. While out window shopping with your date, don’t be afraid to turn up the heat in over-the-knee boots and a sweater dress like Kerr’s chunky knit Alexander Wang illusion dress. Just be sure to stay warm with a classic pea coat that’s in the same color family, like Kerr did.

Rachael Taylor Wears Winter Whites
At the series premiere of 666 Park Avenue, Rachael Taylor proved that you can wear white in winter. Take a cue from Taylor and start with a classic snow white V-neck shift, then add icy accessories like a silver box clutch and strappy silver platform pumps. Don’t worry, you’ll only look like an ice queen.

Annie Monroe Charms in a Cropped Jacket
Annie Monroe may have given a come-hither look at MAC’s presentation of the short film The Painted Lady, but her look was sweet. Wear something vintage-inspired this holiday season, like the 90210 actress’ powder blue Snidel dress with a cropped cream jacket, and you’ll look like one of the romantic leads from everyone’s favorite old holiday movie.

Solange Knowles Blooms in Winter Florals
Who says you can’t wear flowers in winter? Do like Solange Knowles did in Dolce & Gabbana at the American Ballet Theatre opening, and pick floral patterns on dark backgrounds. Accessorize with gold touches like her pumps and jewelry and you’ll be the one getting the flowers.

Taylor Swift Goes Graphic
For a casual date this holiday season, go graphic like the outfit Taylor Swift was spotted in leaving a hotel in London. Get noticed in a bold printed sweater and wine-colored tailored trousers, and add accessories with feminine details like the singer’s pearls and bow flats. A red pout won’t hurt, either.

Going on an outdoor date? Don’t get bogged down under frumpy outerwear. Olivia Palermo looked chic and warm at the opening of Harvey Nichols’ Beauty Bazaar in Liverpool, wearing a white coat with a cowl neck and short sleeves. Pick a coat you can warm up to with an interesting color or shape that will make you excited about being seen in it.
