Flawless festive style, whatever your palette – by Jo

header_aAre you a dresser upper or a dresser downer? A Boxing Day walker or a firmly glued to the TVer? Is your New Year’s Eve all sparkles and champagne or tea and  Jools Holland’s Hootenanny? Whatever your plans, having a great (and comfortable) wardrobe of outfits over the Christmas period definitely puts the holly on the Christmas pudding. However, so many of us find ourselves stressing about how to dress up for Christmas dinner while still feeling comfortable, feeling confident while facing 3,000 family members at the annual boxing day lunch or looking our best at a glamorous New Year’s Eve party.

If you know your personal colour palette, simply click on the links below to go to your own seasonal inspiration post. If you don’t know your personal colour palette, you can still have an amazing Christmas rocking your best outfits, just keep reading below for inspiration for all.

Sticking to the more universal colours and neutrals will give you a fabulous and flattering festive wardrobe, even if you don’t know your exact palette. Go for true reds, navy blue, mole, pebble grey, soft white, teal and aqua. Aim to base your outfits around one or two neutrals and a bright colour, or go top to toe bright.

Christmas Day

Christmas Day is all about mixing glamour with comfort (assuming that you, look me, intend to eat your own body weight in roast dinner and then again in chocolate in front of the TV). I love mixing Kettlewell’s sparkle tops with super comfy bottom halves.

Wear a Sparkle Tunic in Silver, Bella Trousers in  Dark Navy, Tassel Necklace in Midnight Crystal – all from Kettlewell. Add some silver ballet flats for that final shimmer.

Boxing Day

Off for a walk to burn off some calories? Keep cosy and stylish in a Jenna Merino Swing Tunic in Chocolate Marl worn with a Florence Infinity Scarf in Mallard and top off with an Alpaca Shawl in Oatmeal worn with jeans and boots.

New Year’s Eve

The one night of the year when we can go for full on glamour! Wear a Sparkle Crossover in Silver with a Ruched Skirt (available in two lengths) in Fig, add a Metallic Leather Clutch Bag in Tin and add some killer heels and you are good to go.

New Year’s Day

If you feel like having a relaxing day after all the festivities, there’s nothing nicer than slipping into a Cosy Cotton Stripe Top (shown here in Lipstick Pink and Grey Marl) and some Jersey Trousers in Bright Navy, top off with a Florence Infinity Scarf in Lobelia and a pair of sneakers.
