CHRISTMAS OUTFITS

What to wear over the festive period, from matching Christmas pyjamas and novelty jumpers to video-call-friendly tops and comfy-yet-glam dresses. Consider your Christmas wardrobe sorted

Novelty Christmas jumpers

Whether you switch to full-on festive mode from 1 December, with the whole family sporting Christmas jumpers all month, or you favour a more understated approach, wearing a classic Fair Isle jumper on key dates such as national Christmas Jumper Day (11 December this year FYI), we have seasonal sweaters all the family will love. Highlights include dogs in jumpers on a jumper for him, classic Fair Isle knits for her and sparkly reindeers and festive Stormtroopers for kids. Even the littlest member of the family can get in on the action with adorable knits featuring festive penguins for babies.

Screen-friendly Christmas tops

While nothing is certain about Christmas right now, it’s likely that at least some get togethers will be screen to screen instead of face to face, giving party dressing a waist-up focus. Think sparkly tops or accessories, interesting collar details and patterned tops that feel festive enough for screen parties with friends, Christmas Day catch-ups with extended family and virtual New Year’s Eve drinks. They’ll look chic worn with wide-leg trousers and heeled courts but, as no one will know what you’re wearing from the waist down, could just as easily be paired with boyfriend jeans and slippers.

Fancy Christmas dresses

While planning anything has been impossible for much of 2020, one thing we can start thinking about is our Christmas Day outfit. While some families are firmly in the PJs-all-day camp, if you favour dressing up on the big day, a relaxed long-sleeved patterned mini, midi or maxi dress will feel special but still comfortable enough to wear for a day of feasting. Plus, you’ll get plenty of milage out of it post-Christmas, layered over a roll neck, Heatgen thermals and tights when the mercury really drops, and paired with chunky lace-up boots when you’re out and about.
