Christmas day is arguably the best day of the year, and what’s not to love with all the delicious food, bottomless prosecco and presents flying about?! However, in the midst of all the hectic prep leading up to the big day, planning what to wear often falls to the bottom of your to-do list. So, here at OTL, we have put together a selection of Christmas Day outfits, so you have one less thing to think about! We understand that everyone’s Christmas Day traditions can vary, so whether you prefer to dress up or slob out, we’ve got everything you need to do festive fun, fashionably.
We would all be morning people if every day was Christmas - who wants to stay in bed when there’s presents to open and Bucks Fizz to be sipped? Start your day in style by slipping into silky, satin goodness. The PJ trend will be your best friend for feeling comfy, cosy and casual but looking effortlessly put-together! Go for tie waist detailing to structure your silhouette or keep it classic with a quintessential PJ set with contrast piping, for ultra-glam vibes that’ll look picture perfect next to a roaring fire.
If your family insists on dragging you off the sofa and out the door for a Christmas Day stroll, we’ve got the perfect pieces to help you stay snug! Layer up your look with a quilted velvet jacket that’ll make you feel like you never left your bed and protect you from the chilly weather. Choose to wrap yourself up like pigs in blankets with a longline puffa coat – easy to chuck on over your PJ’s or Christmas Day dress to keep you warm and cosy whilst you work up an appetite.
You have to wait for what feels like an eternity for your Christmas dinner to cook - not helped by the unreal smell of food that fills your whole house – so when it’s finally time to tuck in, keeping it comfy has to take priority! Choose an oversized check midi dress with feminine frills that is both festive and food baby proof. Indulge in style by pairing a high neck top in luxurious velvet with a pair of mustard palazzo trousers, so you look all things merry and bright whilst you pull crackers and load your plate.
If you plan on partying late into the night with friends and family, turn heads in a festive red, wide leg jumpsuit that’s clever enough to accommodate the post-dinner bloat but sassy and sophisticated enough for you to pair with your highest heels and dance the night away. Sparkle and shine whilst you serve canapes to your guests in a structured silver shirt dress with iridescent buttons. Complete your luxurious look with bold a red lip, drop-down earrings and accessorise with a glass of prosecco.
It gets to 6pm on Christmas Day and you’ve successfully eaten your body weight in pigs in blankets and mince pies, so you’re probably ready to settle down for some board games and a glass of baileys. If you want to slob out, but not feel too frumpy, opt for a cool co-ord that offers unreal cosiness whilst you watch Elf for the 11th time. Prove that loungewear can be luxurious and choose a cream, ribbed knit combo with belt detailing and flared trousers, or pick a dreamy blue chenille duo with scalloped hems, to finish off your Christmas Day in comfort and style.
