When it comes to Christmas there are two kinds of people. Those who leave everything to the last minute and those who have each and every Christmas-y detail planned out.
But what about your Christmas outfits?
Never fear! We’re here to help ensure that each and every one of our readers is prepared for festive soirees, no matter how last minute you leave the arrangements.
Plan your outfits in advance
This one is easier said than done for some people – but there are huge advantages to planning your Christmas outfits in advance. These include reducing last minute stress, being able to get clothes dry-cleaned in advance and saving time by knowing what you’ll be wearing to each and every party or celebration.
If you ask us, anything to save time is a bonus!
What to wear: ladies
• A simple dress – whether you have a class little black dress or another colour and style that you love, simple dresses are a great for Christmas occasions as you can dress them up or down depending on your accessories.
• Jeans and nice top – this combination should be a go-to for every woman unsure of what to wear. Choose a darker denim in a slim fit to dress up your outfit.
• Great yet comfortable shoes – it’s always good to remember that you will be doing a lot of standing at Christmas soirees and to accommodate this with comfortable, yet stylish footwear.
What to wear: men
• Jeans or slacks and a nice fitting shirt or polo are a great go-to for almost any occasion.
• For formal events, we recommend popping a blazer over the top.
• If your family gathering is more backyard barbecue than formal dinner, you can also choose to switch the jeans for a comfortable pair of shorts.
What to wear: kids
• Whatever they like! Christmas should be a fun time and we recommend not being too strict on your kids and what they should be wearing. As long as they’re feeling comfortable the day will be brighter and more festive!
Have a spare outfit for last minute soirees
Lastly, we always recommend having a back-up outfit ready for any unexpected invitations.
How are you feeling about the 2019 festive season? Excited, we hope.
