What to wear on Christmas Day
This week I have been inspired by a pair of fabulous kitten heel silver boots from Mint Velvet. I’m so utterly convinced about the wearability and style power of these boots I’ve decided to create three Christmas Day outfits centred around them to suit individual personal styles. One pair of boots, 3 ways to wear them;
Classy Chick. Also known as classic - this outfit is for you if you favour a smart, polished or tailored look or if you are going somewhere formal and dressy for Christmas dinner.
Lounge Lizard - ‘athleisure’ is your thing and comfort top of your priority list when pulling together outfits. In the past five years its become perfectly acceptable to wear what are effectively jogging bottoms as a ‘going out’ outfit. It’s a sporty vibe, mostly with elasticated waists on the trousers so perfect for stuffing your face on Christmas day! This look is better for those of us with a very relaxed, cool approach to dressing.
Feminine Christmas Fairy - if you love a dress or skirt and think Christmas is a great opportunity to go nuts and dress up to the MAX then this look is for you! If you can’t wear tulle and sequins on Christmas Day when the hell can you?
These lovely boots also come in a metallic blue colour which I also love but they’re not quite as neutral.
Look #1 is Classy Chick. Smart, tailored and polished.
This blouse from Boden hangs beautifully and has blouson sleeves which stop it from being too dull and conservative. Wear with tailored trousers and the silver boots.
The above trousers have a silver metallic thread running through them so would be great with the boots.
2. Lounge Lizard: - Comfort is key, this is if you have a relaxed approach to dressing. It doesn’t mean you want to look scruffy either but even with elasticated waist trousers these boots will help to glam you up.
Loose trousers would work with a thin knit. I love the Whistles Annie sparkle knit above - again it has a silver thread running through it so would go beautifully with the boots. Comes in lots of different colours too. OR you could go for the Hush Halo jumper with silver stars;
It’s hard to see in the above photo but these trousers have a satin side stripe so are relaxed but glam. The cropped cut will be really nice with the ankle boots, just giving a flash of ankle.
All the above trousers have great wearability after the festive season too so you’ll get more for your money. The tulle skirts below are my favourite and I’m definitely a person who likes to dress-up at Christmas.
3. Feminine Christmas Fairy: - Sequins, glitter, sparkle and tulle are what you covet this time of year. These skirts will look lovely on Christmas Day with the featured boots and come the new year you could wear with a chunky knit and touch boots. Or, you can just put them away in the wardrobe until next Christmas, either way, they may not be the best value for money but they will make you feel fabulous at Christmas! Talking of value for money, there are two brands that are great at tulle at both ends of the price spectrum. Needle & Thread are higher end and also do beautiful dresses. Lace and Beads do very similar clothing but are much cheaper.
I would pair these skirts with a simple thin knit like the ones above or a cashmere thin knit from Uniglo. Add some sparkly earrings and your outfit is done.
The one above is my favourite and the most expensive! Cheaper options by Lace & Beads below:
