Choosing what to wear on Christmas Day is always such a dilemma. Do you dress to impress in a lovely festive frock or enter into the fun spirit with a novelty knit? Whether you’re planning a cosy Christmas at home, hosting the day for family or friends or heading out somewhere special for Christmas lunch you’ll want to choose an outfit that looks and feels just right so that you can simply relax and enjoy the day — the aim here is festive but practical too.
A jersey knit dress or tunic is stylishly simple and easy to wear while you’re enjoying the day’s festivities. Add some statement accessories for additional sparkle and you can dine out in comfort and style. If you’re planning to indulge in a big festive feast, you’ll find that stretch fabrics and elasticated waist-bands are your forgiving friends!
If you like to make a sartorial style statement, Christmas Day is the perfect opportunity to bring a bit of glitz and glamour to your look. A sparkly or luxury devoré top will make you feel festive – pair it with soft velvet velour trousers or silky jersey palazzos for a comfortable and yet glamorous outfit. Spread the Christmas spirit in a gorgeous brocade jacket slipped on over a silk tee-shirt for effortlessly stylish party glamour.
Don’t forget to consider something warm and casual for those traditional post-Christmas lunch walks too. Wrap up with sumptuous knits in merino, cashmere or lambswool paired with easy-fit wool trousers or stretch jeans – we love Michele’s figure-friendly Magic jeans. Top off your look with a cosy warm jacket or fabulous winter coat and a pair of warmly lined boots.
Whatever your Christmas plans, if you plan your outfit well in advance it’s one less thing to worry about on the day. Check out the seasonal collections from David Nieper, Jaeger and the M&S Best of British and Autograph ranges for some ideas, then settle back and enjoy the festive fun!
