Christmas Day Outfits

What to wear on Christmas Day. It is a dilemma. Christmas Day outfits have to have a lot of thought put into them. You want to be festive, right? You want to dress up a bit, agreed? But you also want to be comfy. All that food, remember…! And, of course, your Christmas Day Outfits depend entirely on your Christmas Day.

Off out for Christmas lunch this year? Perfect excuse to get gorgeously glammed up. Of all the Christmas Day outfits, this one can be the most dressed up. No slouching on the sofas for you – you want to look great in the restaurant, so make an effort with a gorgeous dress, beautiful accessories, sparkly shoes, and you’ll need a glamorous coat too.

If you are hosting, then you want to look good, but comfort is hugely important – you’ll be in and out of the kitchen, so nothing that you’ll overheat in. An easy jumpsuit is a great idea, or a two-piece  skirt and top combo – no need to think about it, just sling it on and look fab! If you can do heels, great, if not, have some fun with your flats.

Maybe Christmas Day is all about the country walk for you? So, perhaps you will have two Christmas Day outfits – one for the walk, one for dinner. A wintry walk is great, but make sure you’re cosy and warm with the right outfit. Jeans, boots, sweater, gloves, hat, scarf – yep, that’s it – oh yeah, and a big cosy coat!

Maye you’re off out to an evening affair on Christmas Day? So, this might be the most glam of the Christmas Day outfits, agreed? It’s Christmas Day, remember, so time to vamp it up with glitz and sequins. But if you feel like you’ve OD’d on the Christmas pudding, then keep it slouchy and glam with an oversized coat, a sequin jacket, leather trousers and a loose vest.
