Every household has different traditions relating to how they dress on Christmas Day. From Greggs to grandeur – here is some inspiration for three ways to make your outfit the pièce de résistance of the day!
Getting Dressed Up
A popular tradition that really marks the spirit of celebration is when the whole family makes the effort to dress up, causing the Christmas meal to become a grandeur occasion. This year, party wear trends include lots of rich colours such as emerald green and burgundy, as well as the classic silvers and golds which bring the sparkling Christmas magic. Aside from sequins which once again, adorn all outfits and accessories this time of year, my favourite way to dress up is to choose delicate and detailed fabrics which will give you a sense of opulence. Think velvet, chiffon and silk, as well as beautifully formed embroidery or embellishment (all of which can be found on an array of clothing items) that are sure to make you feel glamorous and smart on Christmas Day.
Another firm favourite Christmas Day outfit is to relax in cosy Christmas pyjamas! Many families will buy matching sets for the whole house, allowing everyone to be equally as comfy and festive. Others simply just wear their cosiest set! If you’re doing this one as a family, a great thing to do is have everyone open and wear their Christmas pyjamas on Christmas Eve, so you’re all suitably ready to start the festivities by the morning!
Christmas jumpers are like Marmite – you either love them or hate them! But no matter which side you’re on, there will definitely be a jumper our there for everyone! Firstly, Christmas jumpers come in a variety of different styles in terms of the actual jumper knit. Traditionally they are thick and woolly, usually sporting a classic Fair Isle knit with Christmas patterns on. However, the market has evolved and there
are now designs that are specifically aimed at fans of anything – from Greggs to Brexit, you’ll definitely find a theme for you! Alternatively, if you are looking for something a bit more subtle, there are loads of more
muted designs/ patterns available.
I hope you all have a wonderful festive season!
