Hello you little Christmas fashionistas, hope you’re all feeling fashionably festive?
I don’t know about you, but the one thing on my mind, aside from shopping, gifts and snow is what the devil to wear on the big day. No, not my wedding day, I’ve known that since I was three – but Christmas Day.
I think the options you need to consider should all look amazing, be comfortable, have the ability to expand and allow for excess food consumption! Glitter also helps.
I also have this idea that I always want to wear velvet, because there’s something about it that looks so Christmassy. There’s one problem though – I have a morbid fear of velvet! I can’t stand the texture. Where everyone else says it feels soft – I abhor it and think it feels so dry.
Anyway, onto dresses I CAN wear:
This beautiful dress from Oasis (£65), which has a real Mad Men feel to it. I think pairing it with heels, black tights and red lips will really fit the bill.
ASOS Colour Block Swing Knitted Dress
This is the cutest thing ever and it matches my belief that a Christmas dress should be relaxed, feminine, but still stylish!
Emesha Cocktail Style Dress £730
I saw this dress on Young British Designers
and fell in love with it. The possibilities are endless for styling, and on Christmas day, I’d wear this with white wool tights, ankle boots and a T-shirt underneath.
Topshop Spot Crepe Button Down Dress £45
I’m going dotty for this adorable dress
. It’s so very sweet that it would also easily take me through to S/S, where I can wear it with bear legs. Before then, grey tights and dolly shoes would look fab.
I think this dress
has to be my favourite of the bunch. I adore the Peter Pan collar, adore the belt, hell I just ADORE the dress. I have become quite a fan of the Elizabeth Lau brand and I’m sure you’re going to love it too.
Overall, I’ve discovered that yes, it does have to be a Christmas dress. It doesn’t work the same if it’s a Christmas jumpsuit, or Christmas trousers.
Which do you prefer and why?
Do you guys have outfits you buy each year specifically for Christmas day?
