You’ve got your Christmas lists sorted.
You’ve started buying presents.
Your dinner menu is under control.
But do you have your wardrobe ready this Christmas?
Party wear can be daunting for almost anyone, but with a little preparation you can be ready in a flash for any Christmas soiree.
Plan suitable outfits in advance
The best way to get wardrobe ready is to keep a selection of wardrobe basics – that work for any occasion – on hand.
If you want to take it one step further, consider planning out two or three go-to outfits that allow you to get dressed in a cinch. It’s a great idea to include the whole family in this planning. There is nothing worse than being ready to go and realising you forgot to include your partner or children’s wardrobe.
To make it even easier we’ve put together a few outfit ideas below:
Outfit ideas for her
• The LBD – a simple, classic little black dress is a must for any holiday wardrobe. The best thing about a LBD is that they can be dressed up or down with difference accessories to suit any occasion!
• Great fitting jeans and colourful tops – aim for tops that can be dressed up with semi-formal slacks if dresses are not your thing.
• Comfortable shoes! It’s tempting to whip out your favourite stilettos but Christmas gathering can be stressful and lengthy! Aim for a pump heel or wedge for comfort this festive season.
Outfit ideas for him
• Jeans and fitted shirt or V-neck sweater always look great on men and can generally be worn to a range of events.
• A blazer to dress up jeans and shirts – this is great if you have more than one engagement in one day.
• Black or brown shoes with matching belts are a must for pulling the entire outfit together.
Have a spare outfit for last minute occasions
We also recommend having a backup outfit ready for last minute occasions. You never know when the phone may ring with an invite to another must-attend soiree. A simple dress that you can team with accessories from your wardrobe or spare dark coloured shirts are good staples.
Don’t forget about work Christmas parties
Finally, always consider your work Christmas party when getting wardrobe ready. It’s best to wear something a little more conservative (for example: save the mini dress for NYE) at work functions to ensure you maintain a level of respect among your peers.
Are you excited to get wardrobe ready this festive season? We sure are!
