Beyoncé wears Christmas in New York

By Sarah Kelsey

If you've found it difficult to get into the Christmas spirit this year thanks to the unseasonably warm weather we’ve been experiencing, take a cue from Beyoncé and wear your holiday cheer on your sleeve. The 34-year-old star was spotted leaving a building in New York City clad in an ensemble comprised of every seasonal décor element.

The "Drunk in Love" singer topped off her look with a traditional red-and-white Santa hat and green eyeglasses shaped like Christmas trees. An over-the-top, sidewalk-grazing sheath featuring tinsel, ornaments and traditional tree trimmings took ugly Christmas sweater to the next level. Rounding out the eye-catching ensemble were some more muted basics like gold hoop earrings, black army combat boots and a striped dress.

What makes the outfit all the more entertaining is that Beyoncé’s husband Jay Z was spotted leaving the same building sporting a far simpler getup: a black tracksuit, an oversized army coat and a ball cap. The most festive thing about his look was its hits of green.

With her husband's casual wares, it seems the “Crazy in Love” hitmaker might not have been attending a dress-up party, but in the spirit of the holidays chose to showcase her love for all things merry and bright to bring a little cheer. 'Tis the season, after all.

This marks the power duo's first sighting in several weeks. Even the songstress’s Instagram feed has been relatively quiet. The last photo she posted was a pic posing with her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Kelly Rowland. We can only assume this means the Carter family is taking some time off to enjoy the holidays, festive attire and all.
