What to Wear Throughout the Christmas Period
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Well… almost. As the festive season is fast approaching, it’s only natural to start panicking about your Christmas wardrobe. If this is you, then don’t worry, we’ve put together the perfect outfits for all your planned festivities that will make you look and feel fabulous! From your work Christmas party all the way through to New Year’s Eve, we have you covered.
Work Christmas Party Outfit Ideas
Work Christmas party outfits are always hard to choose. You want to dress to impress but you also want to keep it work appropriate. Office parties that are outside of work hours give you the perfect chance to get your glad rags on and show your colleagues a side of you they don’t normally. However, it’s important to get the right balance of having fun while staying professional. Keep your work Christmas party dress modest by choosing a higher neckline shift dress but add a bit of jazz with tassels or sequins. This way you can dress smart while still looking festive! Pair your dress with some caged sandal heels or for something a little more comfortable go for a low block heel so you can dance the night away.
Can You Wear a Black Dress to a Christmas Party?
Yes, black can be worn to a Christmas party. In fact, black looks smart, sleek and chic – everything you should be aiming for! A black velvet dress will look stunning or if you’re wanting to try something different go for stylish separates. Black tapered trousers from our party trousers collection paired with a black single-breasted blazer jacket will ooze sophistication.
What Should You Wear on Christmas Eve?
What to wear on Christmas eve solely depends on what you plan to do. Do you head out for a meal and drinks or do you stay in with the family and get cosy in new Christmas Eve pyjamas? Whatever your tradition is we have the perfect Christmas Eve outfits for you. If you’re heading down to your local pub or bar for a get-together with friends then the perfect outfit choice is one of our party tops or blouses, paired with black skinny jeans. Go for a roll neck top to keep you warm and cosy (especially if you’re walking to and from home!) or choose one of our foil tops in gold, red or pink that will truly get in you in the Christmas spirit. For the perfect finishing touches cover up with one of our party coats and jackets (faux fur is our favourite!) and pop on a pair of heeled ankle boots for a smart-casual, yet on-trend look. We know new pyjamas for Christmas Eve is a tradition among many families, so if this is yours then we have the perfect pjs for the full family. Getting cosy on the sofa watching Elf or Home Alone will be 10x better if the family is matching, right? Our mini me collection has a variety of designs for you to choose your favourite for the both the big puds and little puds!
What Do You Wear on Christmas Day?
Now onto the big one... what to wear on Christmas Day. When it comes to Christmas day outfits do you choose to laze around in your pyjamas all day at home or do you enjoy getting dressed up and making the most of the special day? Well, we love to get dressed up! When choosing outfits for Christmas Day be sure to pick something that you’ll feel comfortable in even after you’ve finished your Christmas dinner (and that extra helping of dessert!). We love wrap dresses for all day comfort and better still, all day style. Pair a wrap dress with some heeled ankle boots and you’re ready to go. If dresses aren’t your thing, go for a party skirt and glamorous top and you’ll look just as good. Christmas is all about feeling festive, jolly and happy and what better colour to wear than red? We have a variety of gorgeous red dresses that’ll see you through the big day. Or if you love to go all out in Christmas mode then our Christmas jumpers are the one for you. Pair yours with skinny jeans or jeggings for a comfortable alternative.
Boxing Day Outfits
Christmas is over but now the festivities continue into Boxing Day. For some this is time for a chilled day on the sofa watching Christmas films, but for others it means shopping in the sales or more family visits. A chilled day means pyjamas or loungewear all day, if you were gifted some new sleepwear for Christmas this is the perfect day to put them to good use. However, if you are out shopping or visiting more family then a little more effort is probably needed. A little less casual than Christmas Day, opt for some party knitwear that will keep you warm and comfortable, whilst still looking great. Go for a funnel neck jumper paired with coated jeans and you’re sure to achieve that on-trend yet comfortable look you’re after. Pop on some boots and an aviator jacket and you’ll be ready to take on Boxing Day.
What Do You Wear on New Year’s Eve?
Sparkle, sequins, and little bit more sparkle. New Year’s Eve outfits give you the perfect reason to go all out when dressing up, but you’ve got to think about the place or party you’re attending and whether they’ve set a New Year’s Eve dress code or not. If you want to go all out with the sparkle (who doesn’t?) then our embellished clothing has everything you need. Many people love to wear a dress on New Year’s, and we have the perfect sparkly dress choices in a range of styles including maxi, midi, shift and bodycon. But if a dress isn’t for you then don’t worry, we have plenty of sparkly alternatives such as sequin mini skirts and kimono tops. Add the perfect finishing touches to your New Year’s Eve outfit with some party accessories. Choose from a range of earrings and necklaces and keep your essentials in a clutch bag. New Year’s Eve is the ideal opportunity to sparkle and shine your way into next year.
What are the Best Colours to Wear on New Year’s Eve?
While colour choice is solely dependent on personal preferences, popular colours for New Year’s Eve include black, gold and silver. Gold and silver are perfect choices for an outfit full of glitz and glamour, and black will give you a sleek look. Whatever colour you choose, we know you’ll look great.
