Dressing for Christmas Day

Do you dress up on Christmas day? I know this question completely divides; some are all about the comfort, opting for Pj’s or a onesie all day and stretchy waistbands are key. Then there are the Christmas jumper wearers and then finally, there are those who choose to dress up, sparkles, fancy pieces and prettiness. 

I am the latter. 

I love dressing up on Christmas day, we always have in fact. My mum, sister and I would always wear something fancy, usually one of our Christmas presents, and use the day to go all out, ‘Cos when else can you walk around your house in your fanciest finery (but still potentially with slippers!)

What camp do you fall in?

I’ve started to plan my Christmas day outfit. We have my in-laws coming to stay which is always lovely as Christmas is all about family. We may go out or we may stay in, I’m not sure yet, but either way I’m using this jolly holiday to wear something pretty fabulous..

Shall we take a look at some of my favourite options so far?

DRESSES are usually what i go for on Christmas day. Love a good dress. This sparkly Dolly Sequin Dress is perfection. I think this would be so wonderful for Christmas and New Year. The flattering cut means it skims beautifully (which lets face it, hiding a multitude of sins is very advantageous with all the feasting!) and the sleeves allow some coverage and doesn’t leave you feeling bare.

I think this is my most favourite dress I’ve seen this festive season. Elegant, detailed and flattering, what a wonderful outfit to wear for the festivities.

I actually really like the idea of a JUMPSUIT for Christmas for practicality reasons. I don’t know what it’s like in your house, but its usually quite a busy day with the kids in ours. Whether that be taking them out for a quick spin on that new bike that Santa left, or rolling on the floor building lego pieces and playing pie face. It can be quite demanding as a mum. I love the freeing feeling a jumpsuit brings that you just don’t get from a dress. Dashing around the house becomes easy in a jumpsuit as you feel less restricted. But, a jumpsuit still holds that dressed up feeling. 

I adore the luxe feeling of the Velvet Moon Jumpsuit, and is bang on trend for both the culotte cut and the velvet fabric. 

The Tuxedo Junction Jumpsuit is a neo-classical piece. A modern item that will work for SO many events, I would lay money on this being an absolute work horse of a piece in your wardrobe. The tailoring is just divine with its cuffed hem and key hole split to the chest. How simple yet beautiful.

TOP and SKIRT options are of course the most versatile. Take a Sparkly Top and a Leather Skirt and you have instant glamour. change the top for a knitted sweater and you have cosy chic. Change the shirt for jeans or trousers and you have smart-casual. Easily done, you could in-fact change through the day.

Start the day in the skirt with a chunky cosy knit for when jack frosts nipping away, then as the day warms up, change to the sparkly top for a special Christmas lunch, and after the feast of the year change the skirt to relaxed black trousers . Beyonce and your multiple outfit changes, eat your heart out.

Choices choices. But all fabulous choices to have.

I’ve collaborated with the wonderful Great Plains for these Christmas day outfit options and I absolutely love every one. I actually think I’m personally leaning towards the Jumpsuit idea, dressed up with some jewellery, a faux fur coat and some heels

Which one is your favourite here?

And what will you be wearing this Christmas?

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you have an awesome weekend ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

    I blogged about my Christmas & New Years Eve outfits today as well.

    I always dress up for Christmas and it has to be a dress but I also go for comfort at the same time.

    Living in Sydney and thus celebrating Christmas in Summer my choice of outfit is a free-flowing brightly coloured kaftan.

    That comment above really seems to relate to your blog!! Not! How funny (and annoying). I'm in the dress up coz you can, why not category. And usually it's (gasp) hot here so its ballgowns and bare feet which is kind of nice. Thanks so much for hosting and have a great week planning an outfit for the big day xx

    I love these outfits! I'm definitely a Christmas jumper girl on Christmas day, I know it's cringed, but we all wear one. We always head to the beach with the dogs for a walk after lunch so we need to be kind of practical but festive ๐Ÿ™‚

    I'm all about comfort. It's too cold here in Wisconsin to wear dresses for Christmas.

    I usually wear an "in between" outfit on Christmas. Maybe faux leather leggings and a nice top. Still comfortable but a bit more put together…

    I love the options you picked! Reminds me that I still want to get a jumpsuit at some point…

    Have a wonderful weekend, Rachel!

    I love looking put together for Christmas, but also like being comfortable, so my outfit usually includes a sweater dress. I'm loving all three of these options, but the dress is my favorite!

    I am definitely a dress up in all the sparkles kind of gal on Christmas day. I really like the leather skirt and top looks.

    I love the sparkly dress, although I have to admit that I don't usually dress up for Christmas Day. I spend most of it freeing toys from fiddly plastic packaging, assembling things and putting batteries in them – that's after clearing away all the wrapping paper! I might add a bit of sparkle with some jewellery or a sequinned top though ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ohhhh, I love that leather/lace pencil skirt – that would be gorgeous! I am in the middle on Christmas Day – dressy/casual is what I would call it ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for hosting and hope you have a great weekend!
