Christmas Day Fashion

What to wear on Christmas Day. What is your Christmas Day fashion? A dress, maybe? Or do separates work better? Or do you never get out of your PJ’s? We hope not.

Whatever your Christmas Day fashion, there are a few simple elements to every Christmas Day outfit, we think, so we’ve made it the focus of this week’s Weekly Wishlist.

Let’s start in the morning  – get up, get that onesie or gown on, and slippers and open those presents. And it’s much more fun if your Christmas Day fashion starts with a novelty pair of Rudolph the Reindeer slippers (£12.50, Lounge and Sleep @ Debenhams). Oh, and this cute zip up pattern gown from BHS (£28). Then it’s time to think about your outfit. If you want a dress, choose a simple style, and dress it up.

We love this plain black 50s style frock from JOY (£55, was £110). Or if you want separates pick a colour palette and stick with it. Go for simple black trousers (£34.95, GAP), or a glitzy sequin pencil skirt (£29.99, H&M)

Choose contrasting shoes – bold , gold sequin Mary Janes from Red or Dead (£75, exclusive to Schuh), or berry velvet gold trimmed platforms from New Look (£27.99). Add a pair of drop earrings in black for a finishing touch (£7.99, H&M).

Keep cosy until you need to peel off with either this sparkly sweater (£22, Red Herring @ Debenhams), or this bright, festive red cardigan at JOY (£30).

If you’re heading out, top off your Christmas Day fashion with a bold winter coat. We adore this black and white patterned coat from French Connection – even more so now it’s in the sale! (£112, was £225).

Add a pom pom hat (£7.99, H&M) if it’s cold, and/or a very festive scarf and gloves set (£22, BHS)

Grab a clashing bag like New Look’s snakeprint bucket bag (£?) and you’re all set!

Merry Christmas Day fashion!

A little bit of sparkle – weekly wishlist

Yes, we know it’s only November, but we’re already seeing the party invites start to pop through our letterbox. So, it’s time for a little bit of sparkle!

We love the festive season for many reasons, but the biggest one of all? That we can indulge our inner fairy princess and add sparkle to whatever we wear. Shoes, handbags, dresses, T-shirts, trousers, you name it, we’ll sparkle it!

Glitter, sequins, metallic fabrics  – all the sparkle we will ever need. If you want to start wearing your sparkle now, we salute you – be subtle with it, perhaps just the odd sequinned T-shirt, or some bling on your sandals. Then work your way up to full on sparkle come December – and there’s nothing more full-on than French Connection’s amazing sequinned flared trousers (£130). How cool?

Wit the weather we’ve been having of late, H&M’s glittery storm motif T-shirt is a musthave (£14.99). Other fab sequinned tops come from J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams – full sequins, or maybe just sequin panels down the front is more your style, like this lovely Betty Jackson Black @ Debenhams chiffon top (£45). But we absolutely adore New Look’s black and autumnal ombre sequinned top (£32.99).

Little bit of Sparkle - weekly wishlistNew Look’s bandeau top (£22.99) and pencil skirt (£27.99) two piece is sparkle perfection for your festive party. Also at New Look, the very non-subtle, statement silver glitter platform shoes (£34.99)! Do you dare?

If not, then perhaps just a pair of black sandals with diamante trim down the front (£34.99)? New Look’s silver jacquard dress (£34.99) is sure to unleash your inner Elsa? Snow Queens are us!

Also in the Snow Queen style, French Connection’s feather and sparkle cape (£180) – utterly beautiful, and perfect to add a touch of sparkle to skinny jeans and a vest.

Finally, a cute black lace and glittery perfume bottle shape handbag (£35, Faith @ Debenhams) is festive perfection!
