Amidst all the gift buying, meal planning and festive parties it can be easy to forget to think about what you’re going to wear at the climax of the holiday season – Christmas Day! It’s the moment we’ve all been focusing on, waiting for and stressing out about after all. Save the Christmas jumpers for drinks with your mates and something fun to wear to the office, and go for sophisticated pieces and an elegance to really celebrate the festivities!
Celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas, Reiss is giving away one very special prize every day – from exclusive experiences to fantasy fashion. Want to win a complete Christmas Party outfit? Visit 12 Days of Gifting to find out more.
Has it snowed? What has Santa brought you this year? Exchanging presents and opening stockings over mince pies and coffee on Christmas morning calls for a elegant ensemble befitting the importance of the day. Go for a chic vintage-inspired dress or perhaps a draped shift that you can accessorise with a necklace or some sparkly earrings later on. Lend a luxe feel to Christmas Day with shimmery metallics and rich fabrics, ensuring you’ll feel special all day long.
Overindulged on the turkey and trimmings? Head for the sofa and cosy up in the softest tonal knits and sumptuous cashmere pieces – not forgetting the chocolates, of course! Go for soft neutral tones – greys, beige, nude or taupe – for a luxurious off-duty look. Oversized cardigan, knits and jumper dresses are your best friends for that Christmas Day afternoon slump. Just add a slick or red lippy to dress things up instantly. Party hat optional.
The Christmas Day Walk
Opened all your presents, eaten your fill of turkey, pudding and chocolates? It’s time for the quintessential festive family tradition: the Christmas Day walk. Outdoorsy pieces are what you need here – whether it’s a quick stroll around the park or a longer walk in the countryside. Dress up leggings and a chunky knit with a cosy shearling-accented jacket to keep out the chill in style.
On Christmas Night
Whether it’s an intimate family party or sumptuous dinner with friends, Christmas evening is the time to get sophisticated and pull out all the stops. After all, if you’ve invested in a glamorous frock or daring jumpsuit for the party season, now is the time to wear it! Lace, velvet, sequins and embellishment – wow them over cocktails and canapés with a killer outfit to knock their socks off.
