The big day has arrived. All of your family are gathered round ready to rip open presents, tuck into the turkey and spend some good old fashioned family time together. The question is: what do you wear? Christmas is an opportunity for glitter, sequins and all things that feel good, but with the meal marathon ahead of you, this is no time for bodycon dresses or the tightest of skinny jeans. Here are a few ideas for getting that perfect Christmas look…
The Christmas jumper has seen a massive revival over the past few year, so this Christmas day, be sure to go glam with the trend. Wear a sparkly sweater like this one from Topshop. What’s great about this jumper is that the sequin motif isn’t too over-the-top so it will be perfect for looking good and feeling warm and festive on Christmas day. Mix it up by wearing the jumper tucked into an embossed trapeze skirt and black tights for Christmas day and with skinny jeans and a bobble hat for Boxing Day.
Should funds allow, for a touch of luxury this Christmas you could opt for a jumper similar to this one from Whistles. Although expensive, this wintery treat would be worthwhile in getting you through future colder seasons to come

If the Christmas jumper doesn’t appeal, you might wish to opt for a more formal party look this year…
Wear a sparkly wrap dress with tights and a comfy cardigan for that layered, comfortable feel. The sparkle in this French Connection dress will make you feel truly festive, whilst the jersey material will allow comfortable room for the inevitable food baby at the end of the day. The wrap around shape creates hourglass proportions, flattering for all figures, and its charcoal colour with just a touch of shimmer means it will be wearable for nights out in the New Year. Be sure to wear this with delicate layers of gold jewellery to be bang on trend this Christmas day.
For a more budget friendly alternative try this dress from Warehouse. The silver pattern is a beautiful colour palette wearable for every season. Its versatility means it can be worn either with tights and a Christmas jumper, or with bare legs and heels for a Christmas night out, with a slick of red lipstick you’ll be ready for the next big party! This dress is a favourite of mine for Christmas, and I plan to wear it with curled hair and statement earrings.
Finally and most importantly of all, Christmas day calls for a pair of snuggly slippers. No Christmas outfit is complete without a pair of fluffy slippers, perfect for chilling by the fire with a glass of Champers and a choccy selection box. For appropriate Christmas attire try these Rudolph slippers from Topshop, or for comfortable glamour go for faux fur slippers like these from Next. Their soft fur adds a touch of luxury and you’ll have comfortable, warm feet all day – perfect for a day spent unwrapping gifts and watching Christmas films.
Whatever you wear this Christmas day, be sure to spend the festivities with those who’ll love you with spilled mulled wine down your Christmas jumper!
