Deck the Halls in Stylish Christmas Clothing
Is there any time of year that’s more enchanting than Christmas? Bright lights and decorations illuminate chilly nights, and we decorate our homes with exuberantly-trimmed Christmas trees, holiday wreaths, and delicious, festive treats. We comb through store racks and online shops looking for the perfect gifts to give our loved ones, and we spend a few days of uninterrupted quality time with our family and closest friends. Yeah, there’s no question—Christmas is definitely the best time of the year. The only thing that remains is: what are you going to wear?
From your family’s traditional brunch to the post-Christmas get-together that you enjoy with your friends, read on for our tips on styling your way through the Christmas festivities.
The moment that your flight or train arrives and you step foot into your hometown for the holiday, your family is ready to greet you with its annual tradition of a Christmas Eve brunch at your favorite local restaurant. Drop your bags into your childhood bedroom and change into a casual outfit with some spunk. Pull on a maxi-length, denim shirtdress and layer with a luxe, fur vest in burgundy. Pull on a pair of heeled, knee-high boots in tan and finish with a brown leather crossbody.
Unlike Thanksgiving dinner—when all of your cousins, aunts, nieces and nephews are in attendance—Christmas dinner is a low-key, intimate affair spent with your immediate family. Modernize your holiday style in a red Christmas sweater dress. If you have plans to hang out later in town, add tights for warmth; otherwise, you can go bare-legged. Keep your ensemble casually chic and slip into a pair of low-top sneakers in black and white, and enjoy a cup of eggnog while you wait for dinner.
After spending time with your family and exchanging gifts, it’s time to enjoy a meetup with your childhood friends before you all return to your respective cities and careers. Whether it’s drinks, dinner, or all of the above and more, it’s sure to be a fun night. Dress for the festivities in a long-sleeved, lace crop top in white and a black high-waisted skirt. Add a touch of sparkle via silver pumps and finish with a colorblocked crossbody bag.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Make sure that you’re ready for everything the holiday brings with the perfect edit of Christmas clothing.
