Christmas Outfit Ideas
With parties, date nights and family gatherings as well as the big day itself, Christmas can sometimes be frantic when it comes to choosing what to wear. Think bauble colours, embellishment and comfort for the girls and sharp tailoring for the guys. Put that cheesy Christmas album on, pour some mulled wine and celebrate the season, but don’t forget the obligatory xmas jumper!
By picking one key piece and changing the accessories you can make your clothes work for their price tag and save yourself some money at the same time, stick to a durable colour such as black, white or red and accessorise to the max! A playsuit is age appropriate and flattering with this New Look embellished piece (£44.99 newlook.co.uk) hitting all the marks, dress it up with Topshop heels (seen below) and a white blazer (£22.99 newlook.co.uk) for ultimate chic, add tights and a fedora to dress down.
ASOS tends to be my go to when it comes to clothes, and this Lipstick Boutique plus sized Baroque dress (£65 asos.com) really caught my eye. It just screams Christmas. Flattering and comfortable with a sheer yolk and a textured print, it would become a party staple whatever the season. Pair with these amazing Topshop Heels (£58 Topshop) which feature a thin strap and a feather drop and you’ll be set.
Mens Fashion Outfit Ideas
Men are much more limited when it comes to clothing; especially when trying to strike a balance between formal and casual. But there is always a go to fail safe; the smart shirt and black jeans. Picking the right kind of shirt for the season is key, subdued patterns like this ASOS Houndstooth shirt (£25 ASOS) and a simple tailored berry coloured shirt (£55 Urban Outfitters) mixed with these simple black Topman jeans (£30 Topman) is a classy look for any occasion.
