Christmas Day is a very different affair from one household to another, so dressing for the day will be too. For the magpies amongst us, we're all about celebrating classic festive finishes - if there’s ever a time to embrace sparkles, gold and velvet, then December 25th has got to be it. For others, the festive break means revelling in the never-getting-out-of-PJs mindset until the new year. No matter what your stance is on the dress code of the big day, we've collated Christmas outfit inspiration for whatever traditions you’ll be honouring come Christmas Day.
Going all out
Whether you're cooking the turkey yourself or going out to a restaurant with all the extended family, some traditions include getting dressed up for Christmas dinner. The perfect excuse to introduce some sequins and velvet to your sartorial portfolio, we say. If you feel like forgoing the cliche Christmas party dress this year, look to cool, printed tees and skinny jeans polished off with some fun party accessories.
If the main aim of your Christmas Day is to just be together in front of the telly, making your way through of a box of Quality Street (and trying to steal the purple ones) then make sure you're doing it in ultimate comfort with some luxe loungewear. Look for faux-fur lined slippers and robes for ultimate comfort, and checks and tartans for a classic, festive feel.
Hitting the road
If your Christmas outings are a little more low-key, like venturing on an appetite-inducing walk or calling on loved ones with special gifts, then cosy layers and classic Christmassy finishes are a no-brainer. You can nod to the festivities with some luxe textures like faux fur and satins, and keep toasty in a chunky-knit jumper.
