Festivities are just around the corner, and we don’t know about you, but for us it’s crept up far too quickly this year. If focusing on finding the best Christmas gift ideas for everyone on your list has been your priority and you’ve not yet had a chance to plan your Christmas Day outfit, then we’re here to tick that one off for you.
Everyone addresses their Christmas Day dressing differently, meaning there’s no single straight-forward answer for Christmas outfits for women. Whether you’re after all-day comfort and cosiness, festive dressing-up or all-out occasionwear, we’ve put together a list of 5 outfit ideas for the big day.
What to wear on Christmas Day?
1. Christmas Morning
Who doesn’t love a women’s Christmas jumper? There’s no better way to start the day than in cute, cosy and Christmassy knitwear. A fairisle jumper is a great way to channel festive fashion, without being a one-time wear. Despite being the perfect fit for a Christmas jumper, our Jolee Fairisle Jumper can be worn throughout the rest of the colder season too. If you’re looking for the best of both worlds, our Babysoft Diamante Embroidered Jumper combines softness with sparkle. Pair with a midi skirt, such as our Inu Satin Wrap Midi Skirt, to elevate the glamour from unwrapping the stocking fillers come morning to evening cheeseboards and charades.
2. Christmas Dinner
Wondering what to wear for a Christmas family dinner? We think we’ve found a shining example. From must-have metallics to trending jewel-tones, our top pick is a statement sheen. Our Ronja Liquid Metal Shirt offers a sophisticated silhouette with a midas touch to rival the star atop the tree. We’ll be wearing ours with flattering trousers, and though we love how our Echo Crepe Full Length Trousers will allow the top to be the statement piece, we may have to unbutton the belt after one too many pigs in blankets! A satin top is also a style ready for tucking into the sought-after meal of the season (note: year), and our Adora Satin Top stars in a bejewelled hue, tipped to be the best colours to wear this Christmas.
3. Christmas Afternoon
In our household, it’s tradition to recover from the dinner on the sofa with a movie marathon. If you follow a similar yearly routine, we know you’ll be looking for a women’s Christmas Day outfit to relax in, whilst still looking your best. A knitted dress understands the assignment, and we love a bright colourway such as the light blue of our Mari Knit Roll Neck Mini Dress for keeping spirits up amidst endless scrolling to pick out films everyone can agree on watching/falling asleep to. If you’re wanting to maintain dressed-up styling, we have a knitted Christmas dress for the occasion too. Our Krista Organza Long Sleeve Dress partners a chic soft body with captivating organza sleeves. If your afternoons involve playing games with friends or family, then this little black dress deserves a bonus point.
4. Christmas Evening
No December wardrobe is complete without sequins, and we love a shimmering evening ensemble. From layering up the diamante jewellery, a glittering dress or a twinkling matching set, there are endless ways to incorporate a sparkle into a women’s Christmas Day outfit. Our Adalynn Sequin Top catches the light at every angle, and when paired with our Adalynn Sequin Midi Skirt they make for a captivating co-ord. These pieces make for the perfect pairing for topping up your glass, digging into nibbles and having a dance around the living room to nostalgic favourites on TOTP. If you’re after more of a one-piece wonder, then our Adalynn Sequin Midi Dress has you covered, who said you had to choose between a sequin dress and a midi dress? This scintillating Christmas dress ticks all the boxes.
5. Christmas After-Hours
If your living-room disco has you wanting to dance the night away, or you’re wanting to dress up for Christmas Day celebrations with friends, then you can never go wrong with a Christmas dress. The 25th is an occasion at every hour, and if you’re wanting to dress to impress from dusk till dawn, then look no further than the best colours for a Christmas dress code this year: beautiful bejewelled tones. The enchanting violet hue of our Denney Satin V-Neck Mini Dress is showcased in a satin sheen finish, bringing the flirty v-neckline and feminine ruffles of this mini dress to life. For a more contemporary take on the colourway trend, and a stand-out from the crowd style, our Ronja Liquid Metal Strappy Slip Dress takes our vote. A maxi dress with a sultry leg split and metallic shine – who could ask for more? Wear with a Christmas cardigan or faux fur coat if you’re heading out, and to all, we wish you a good Christmas Day (and night!).
No matter what you choose to wear as your 2023 Christmas Day outfit, we at Team FC hope you have the best time celebrating!
