Christmas Day (and Christmas in general) is always very busy. When we’re rushing around opening presents, putting the turkey on to cook, having a few glasses of mulled wine, relaxing while watching a Christmassy film, looking after the kids and visiting relatives, we want an outfit – or two – that will take us easily from dining table to pub to gift unwrapping with ease. After all, we’ve got more important things to worry about! At Littlewoods HQ, we’ve been thinking about the best outfit for this exciting day and have come up with some versatile yet stylish outfit changes for you and your partner.
There’s no way you’ll escape the kids bouncing out of bed and bounding downstairs, but there’s no reason you can’t keep it fashionable and practical while you’re opening presents. Our Savoir Printed Pyjamas are perfect for lounging round in the morning, and pair it with the Sorbet Pom Pom Printed Robe for extra warmth – it’s super snuggly too. For the lads, the Goodsouls Mens Dressing Gown is soft, warm, and great for when you need to make the first bacon sandwiches of the day.
After the presents have been opened, you’ll need an outfit that will look smart enough for Christmas dinner but still be practical for making that snowy walk to the pub. The Goodsouls Mens Check Shirt is a great choice in a festive colour, plus the 100% cotton makes it warm yet still breathable. Sturdy smart boots, like the Goodsouls Holmes Western Mens Boots, look stylish with jeans and will withstand a trudge through the snow too. A cosy jumper finishes the whole look nicely, and we love the DKNY JEANS Mens Cable Knit Jumper in a high percentage wool mix. Traditional cables and a wide shawl collar make this the perfect Christmas jumper – although we won’t mind if you wear it the rest of the year too!
Getting dressed up for Christmas dinner is always fun, so get glamorous with a jewel-toned dress like the Teatro Waterfall Front Occasion Dress in cobalt blue. The flowing style hides any lumps and bumps while the neckline and bodice are especially flattering. A pair of pretty heels in versatile black, like the Teatro Dakota Pleat Peep Toe Shoes, is the perfect accompaniment. We also love the Pretty Vine Necklace, Bracelet and Earring Set with its crystal details that add a little more sparkle on Christmas Day! For a winter walk after dinner, swap the shoes for some stylish but practical boots, like the Rocket Dog Satire Cowboy Ankle Boots, and throw on a gorgeously cosy cardigan. Our South Patterned Duffle Cardigan combines an on-trend tribal print with a comfy, cuddly wool and acrylic mix for a pretty piece of knitwear. Just swap the dress for a sequinned tee and jeans when you come back to watch the Dr Who Christmas special and you’ll have the perfect, versatile Christmas Day outfit.
