As I contemplate what to wear on Christmas Day, I’ve been looking back at my festive outfits over the last few years. It might be a bit of a fashion cliché, but sequins and glitter always seem to feature in some form or another. They offer so much scope, whether you want to dress up or down. I prefer to keep it on the casual side because I spend Christmas Day at home. There’s not much point in getting done up to the nines just to build lego and lounge on the sofa! However, I do still like to make an effort…it is a special day after all. I’ve selected these outfits to show you three ways to sparkle this Christmas…and still be comfortable!
Boyfriend jeans and a plain black top is a very basic combination, but layer a sequin jacket over it and suddenly it looks much more special. I added a pearl and ribbon necklace, sparkly ring and heels to make it a little more elegant, but velvet or metallic flats would also look great.
A cosy rollneck sweater is a Winter wardrobe staple for me, and I have them in several colours. Instead of blue denim, I teamed this pink jumper with black faux leather skinny jeans and pink glitter boots. I topped it off with a bright pink blazer for contrast.
This look’s a little more dressy than the other two, making it ideal for a slightly more formal occasion. I didn’t end up keeping this skirt because it was too loose around the waist, but I did buy a replacement which is very similar. Actually, I ended up buying one in black and burgundy too! Thanks to the stretch fabric of a lot of sequin skirts they are very comfortable, even if you’re sitting all day. I chose a fine knit jumper with sheer sleeves and a pussy bow to wear with it. Delicate knits can catch on sequins so I’d advise against pairing them with cashmere. A cotton blend is a safer option.
So those are my three ways to sparkle this Christmas…which one is your favourite? As Christmas Day falls on a Tuesday the Style With a Smile link up will be on Wednesday this week instead. And I have a quick favour to ask…voting for the UK Blog Awards ends at midday on Christmas Eve…if you could spare a moment to vote for me (I’m nominated in both the fashion and beauty categories) I’d be so grateful 🙂
