Sure, a little black dress or Le Smoking suit is always on par for the party scene, but who says holiday dressing has to be so cut and dry? From luxurious velvet to oversized and comfy dresses, here are the dresses for switching it up and looking festive this season.
Whatever your plans, choosing what to wear on Christmas Day should be fun. Spend time getting ready on Christmas morning and use it as an excuse to steal some quality 'you time'. Just make sure you choose an outfit that will accommodate a few mulled wines and a big lunch...
That's where our oversized fit dresses will come handy :)
Whatever your traditions at Christmas, it's always nice to pick a stand-out outfit to mark the occasion. A bit of glitz and glamour is a must and can be incorporated in a number of different ways: if you usually relax around the house on Christmas Day enjoying indoor festivities, then choose a comfortable outfit - perhaps an oversized dress or top and favourite jeans and snuggly slippers.
Back in 1993, Japanese designer Issey Miyake made a dent in designers’ imaginations with his revolutionary, technology-driven Pleats Please label. Now, the great minds at Altuzarra, Boss, Victoria Beckham and Proenza Schouler, among others, are manipulating all manner of apparel into streamlined yet edgy silhouettes or creating architectural marvels that add pizzazz to once-stiff getups.
Pleats are great for fashionably hiding yourself away or showcasing your boldest, most avant-garde self. They instantly (quite literally) elevate blah monochrome ensembles — or any outfit, for that matter. Plus, they allow tons of breathing room. And even the coziest swivel chair in your office couldn’t put a wrinkle in their style. Alexa Chung and others have made quite the case for pleats, but don’t just take it from her…take it from us. This season’s tops, tunics, pants, jackets, culottes, midi skirts — heck, even bags — all have serious wardrobe-volumizing potential.
