My answer to this dilemma is to find an item that already features red and green together. (Unless you are looking at a tacky Christmas sweater) if a piece of clothing has been designed with these colors in mind, I find that the look is more chic than if I were to sport a plethora of head-to-toe red and green items.
As an alternate to the outfit shown above, I've untucked the shirt and added a red belt accent. Which look do you like best?
And here are a few of my favorite red and green items for your Christmas shopping lists!
