THE
12 DAYS OF
CHRISTMAS

From leaping lords and pro pipers to the cosiest turtle doves– celebrate the 12 days of Christmas with a splash of fun festive style

A partridge in a pear tree

On the first day of Christmas… Take a leaf out of Princess Marie Chantal’s book and dress your baby bird up in a sweet avian-print jumper in regal jade green. We guarantee it will be the cutest partridge you’ll see this Christmas. (Pear tree optional.)

MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME

2 turtle doves

On the second day of Christmas… Ramp up the cosy factor by wrapping up in head-to-toe shades of dove grey, from an extra-special bedazzled bobble hat to this season’s ultimate luxury: a cashmere turtleneck.

3 French hens

On the third day of Christmas… Give your festivities a distinctly French flavour by pairing Breton stripes with structured coats in colour-pop shades of lipstick red and denim; or a frilly tutu for a touch of fun – Joyeux Noël!

4 calling birds

On the fourth day of Christmas… Make the collar on your winter coat pop by adding an eye-catching array of brooches – these vivid embroidered and enamel bird pins flock together for instant impact.

MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME

5 gold rings

On the fifth day of Christmas… Rock some serious jewels with a row of costume rings. Try mixing and matching shades of gold, from white to rose, and stacking up different styles on one finger.

6 geese a-laying

On the sixth day of Christmas… Take a duvet day and settle in for some down time – super-soft, super-warm Hungarian goose down to be precise. Add a chunky jumper and cancel those plans, because you’re not going to want to get up.

7 swans a-swimming

On the seventh day of Christmas… Have some fun with lettered light-up decorations. Get your family’s initials for the tree or arrange festive messages in your window or on your kids’ bedroom doors.

MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME

8 maids a-milking

On the eighth day of Christmas… Organise a pamper day with our gold-top picks of ultra-creamy beauty products. Hydrate with Pixi’s milky mist moisturising spray or channel Cleopatra and run a bath with one of La Maison de Senteurs’ indulgent bath milks.

9 ladies dancing

On the ninth day of Christmas… Strut your stuff in this season’s hottest party shoes. From show-stopping gold disco boots to glitter-bomb pink stilettoes – these are shoes made for any dancefloor, anywhere.

10 pipers piping

On the tenth day of Christmas… Get crafty and practice your best cake decorating skills with our pro piping set. With seven nozzles and two washable piping bags, you’ll be able to take on any bake sales or homemade-present challenges the season throws at you.

MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME

11 lords a-leaping

On the eleventh day of Christmas… Retire your traditional suit and break out some fresh looks when it comes to the office party or seasonal drinks with laid-back selvedge denim, shirts in gemstone tones and a luxe velvet blazer. If you want to take your style up a notch, be the most dapper gent in the room with a bow tie, striped braces or go full Willy Wonka with a traditional top hat.

12 drummers drumming

On the twelfth day of Christmas… March to the beat of your own drum with a sharp jacket complete with polished gold buttons paired with a fluted-sleeve striped top. And don’t forget to hang your outfit inspiration – our own little drummer-boy decorations – on the tree.
