Did you know that it is ONLY FOUR DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS???? (I know, I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping either!) but enough about everyone else, what are YOU going to wear Christmas Day?
Do you dress up? Do you sit by the pool? Or do you just laze in bed half the day (clearly you don’t have kids, it’s Ok – either do I). Well no matter what your plans are, it’s a great excuse to dress up!
So here are a few ideas on what to wear no matter where you are!
1. A Maxi Dress.
This is my ABSOLUTE STAPLE for summer – it’s cool, conformable and chic and generally they pack well because they are often a jersey fabric so perfect if you are heading away for the holidays. This dress, The Maddison, from Sacha Drake, is a personal fave of mine (I have it in 5 colours, don’t judge me). You can dress her up or down, perfect for any Christmas Day event!
I LOVE me some sequins any time of the year, but what better reason that Christmas Day to pull them out. If you have a more formal celebration, something with a bit of sparkle is perfect!
This option from DeCujba could work for a more formal Christmas catch-up, but if you just wanted to add a little fun to a casual Christmas Day, pair it back with some simple tan sandals for a laid-back look.
3. Togs, swimmers, bathers – you know what I mean.
Seriously, who in the Southern Hemisphere doesn’t want to be sitting by the pool on Christmas Day – and how cute is the print – totally festive (plus the shape will actually suit most bodies – I know – that NEVER happens!). Plus just add a sarong when you are out of the pool for a little cover-up and you won’t have to change all day!
Like I said, if you don’t have kids (or don’t live with me – I get up RIDICULOUSLY early on Christmas) you might be able to laze around in bed, open some pressies, have breaky in bed if you are lucky – so why not do it in style. This cute little slinky nightie from Peter Alexander is cute and comfy – just add a dressing gown once you are up!
5. Sun dress
So a maxi is not your thing (what is WRONG with you!) but you can still be festive in a frock! A cute, white summer sun dress is the perfect option. Lace is huge this season so you won’t be short of a little white lace frock. I’m partial to this beauty from Max – I love the shape and structure! Add some green and red more a very festival look, or metallic accessories for a more subtle Christmas feel.
So hopefully you have found something that will work for you on Christmas Day, I still can’t choose, but I’m leaning towards my Sacha Drake Maxi….. or maybe the sparkles….. but the white sundress looks good too….. oh dear.
