Whether you’re looking forward to getting glammed up or plan on spending the day in your comfies, planning the perfect Christmas Day outfit can be tricky! So, to help make it as efficient as possible, we have put together our ho ho ho-ttest clothing picks for Christmas Day – with every dress code in mind!

Feel free to use the following items for inspiration as a full outfit or you could pick your favourite pieces, and add your own spin using your personal wardrobe.

If your day involves a long walk…. even if it’s to the pub

Style note: In this case, functionality should be at the forefront, however, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on the fashion side! Instead, focus on statement pieces such as a beret or adding a fresh pair of laces into your favourite lace-up boots.

If you feel like really, really dressing up!

Style note: If ‘full-on glam’ is your only fashion goal this festive period, then why not use this rare opportunity in Winter to go bare legged? Or you could even bring out your favourite statement heels? You will, after all, be spending the majority of the day on a sofa with a glass of fizzy in your hand!

If you don’t plan on leaving the house

Style note: If you plan on keeping your Christmas Day outfit low-key but don’t want to feel like a slob, then there are many simple changes you can make to your usual loungewear. For instance, consider wearing an oversized cardigan and luxury joggers. Or why not treat yourself to some pyjamas specifically to be worn on Christmas Day?
