Whether you are at home cookie baking, online shopping, running around party hopping or on-the-go gift getting, tis’ the season for our favorite holiday hue – yes, you guessed it, RED!   It’s no secret that December is the month where we all love to take in as much of this bold,  powerful and oh-so-festive color as we can get.  And, when it comes to style, well, let’s just say that the possibilities are endless.   This busy and joyous month calls for fashion that is casual and dressy and we have reds for head to toe or for just that little bit of, pop.

Running Around In Red

Let’s face it, when you are out tackling the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, you need fashion that looks good and feels good.   Busy days call for comfy clothes, but comfy definitely doesn’t mean, frumpy.  It’s the perfect time to show your love for the holiday in clothes that move with you, while looking good on you.   Leggings, sweaters, jeans and our casual tops will have you radiating in red and feeling good, too.

Lounging Around In Red

Have you started your baking yet?  Perhaps you’ve been spending your nights browsing for the most perfect holiday gifts?  How about decking the halls?  Regardless of how you’re spending your days around the house this season, there’s no better time for pajama time, athleisure time, or those cozy, coordinating velour pieces in our gorgeous red plum shades.  You still want to dress for the season, but you should do it in the most comfortable way as possible.  That’s key!

Party Hopping In Red

Ok, now for the fun part.  You’ve been making all your lists, checking them twice and getting things done for others – it’s your time to let loose, feel pretty and bring out your holiday best – in red, of course.   Holiday best doesn’t always have to be about dresses, it can also be about embellishments, luxe fabrics and details that dazzle.  It also doesn’t have to be head-to-toe red.  A dressy top with a pair of velvet heels, a red pair of pants or perhaps even a stunning red kimono is just as party-worthy as your standard party dress.

A POP of Red

Maybe you’re not wanting to go full-force red with your style, but you do want a little bit of that festive color.  This is your chance to bring out those bold, red accessories that brighten up your look.  Our scarlet jewelry collection, holiday brooches and scarves add a touch of red, in a chic, subtle way.   It’s amazing how a simple accessory can update your look for Santa-ready style.

Cold-Weather Red

The weather outside is frightful (or, so the song says) so don’t forget to dress for the weather (and the season) and throw on a jacket, a scarf and/or a cute hat with a  pair of gloves.  Our cold weather looks in wine and red plaids will have you feeling all warm and fuzzy inside and looking oh-so holiday RED-y!

So when you’re out celebrating the season, don’t forget to get in to the spirit of things with your style.  Regardless of what you may be doing, it’s always a great time to add this bright and cheery color to your wardrobe – it’s truly a must.  Tell us how you include this favorite holiday shade in your look – we’d love to know!

  1. I only shop at cato’s, but some of the things that you send aren’t like they used to be. I’ve been shopping here for a long long time. Please go back to the clothes that you used to send, the ladies at the store that I go to are wonderful in helping me. Store number 831 Cloverleaf Plaza Mobile Alabama. Thank you !

  2. Love shopping at Cato. Great styles, great service. The stores are so clean. Such a nice place to shop for all your needs to put together a perfect outfit.

  3. Just as the others stated, I live me some Cato. I hate that you all doesn’t carry the wide belts anymore. I love your costume jewelry and if I could I would buy a watch every week. Keep up the good work.
