I personally think it is completely acceptable to start thinking about what to wear around and for Christmas Day! For most women (and some men!) their work’s Christmas Party is a big deal, myself included! I’ve never actually had a work’s Christmas party before, so this year will be my first! It’s all about the sequin, sparkle and glitter! However, not everyone goes to Christmas parties where you would normally expect a more formal attire, some people are quite happy with a smart/casual meal or a trip to the cinema with friends. It’s the same on the day itself; I personally don’t like to wear a sequin dress for my Christmas dinner when I’m just in the house but prefer to just dress smart/casual. It’s really entirely what best works for you and the circumstances on the day.
With this in mind, I thought I would create some inspiration for a ‘Day’ and a ‘Night’ outfit depending on what occassion you have coming up for Christmas or how dressy you want to be!
I wanted to creat a ‘Day’ outfit that keeps it fancy enough so that it keeps Christmas as a special occasion but also so that it isn’t too much effort and can be worn comfortable all day if needed. I paired these amazing skinny leg denim dungarees with a pussy bow blouse and these amazing big chunky ankle boots, which are in-keeping with the monochrome theme. Simple yet effective! I added a little tinsel for a little bit of fun!

My ‘Night’ or more dressy outfit is less simplistic and more sparkle! I wore this amazing gold/white sequin halter neck dress paired with a faux fur shawl and crackle gold stilettos! All the glamour! If you can’t go all out at Christmas then when can you?! Christmas is the best excuse to wear sparkle, glitter and sequince all in one outfit! However, we can’t forget how cold it get’s in December, especially in little dresses, so a sophisticated deep coloured camel mac coat to compliment the gold in the rest of the outfit is entirely necessary.

I highly recommend Brand Attic for your festive outfits, and in general! I have worked with them as a Blogger twice now and they are by far my favourites to work with!
