If there’s one day of the year you want to look and feel a million dollars, it’s Christmas Day. Apart from your birthday, of course – you want to look pretty damn good then too. But there’s something about Christmas that’s special, so you’ll want to wear something special as well. We break down some festive style suggestions to help you get ready for the big day.
Consider your location
Deciding what to wear on Christmas Day will of course be hugely influenced by where you’ll be celebrating it. Will you be toasting Yuletide by a pool or on a beach? Or perhaps inside with air-conditioning pumping? Wherever you plan to be, your location will play a big part in determining your festive style.
Wear something new
There’s nothing like slipping on a brand new frock that you’ve never worn before, and Christmas Day is the perfect time to do just this. If your tradition is to wear a brand new dress on Christmas Day, why not mix it up this year and rock a printed jumpsuit? Or perhaps you rarely wear a dress, which means Christmas is the perfect opportunity. Wear whatever it is that makes you feel as great as you look!
If there’s one day of the year where it’s OK to ditch your black staples, Christmas is it. Opt for something bright and colourful to spread the festive cheer, or play with prints to make a fun style statement. Red and green are obvious hues to go for, but even plum or burnt orange will brighten up your Christmas outfit and instantly put a smile on your face.
Keep it chic
Despite the above advice, there’s also nothing wrong with keeping your look chic and simple on Christmas Day in monochrome hues. Whether you opt for black and white separates or an all-white number, monochrome shades breathe effortless festive sophistication and style. Just be careful with the mulled wine if you opt for an all-white ensemble…
Add some sparkle
Christmas isn’t Christmas without a little sparkle, and we’re not just talking about the bubbly (although we’re certain that will be flowing too). Whether you opt for a pair of glittery heels or go all-out with a shimmery metallic dress, more is more when it comes to what to wear on Christmas Day.
