Dressing up with a differenceDecember 2020
Christmas will look rather different for many of us this year. But whether you’re joining a bubble with the grandkids, enjoying a virtual gathering with friends or staying resolutely on the sofa, you deserve to feel absolutely fabulous.
Rather than dressing up in your usual go-to festive outfit, this is the perfect time to try something a little different. In divinely soft fabrics, relaxed shapes and striking patterns, you’ll find a Christmas look that looks glamorous and feels glorious all day long. Here are a few ideas to get you started...
Choose comfortable fabrics and yarns
Twirl into the festivities in a gorgeous jersey dress or swishy trousers. High quality jersey is perfect for Christmas Day comfort: it’s smooth and soft, enriched with a little stretch for easy movement, and will stay in pristine shape all day long. If you’d rather cuddle into a jumper, go for a supersoft merino jumper or cashmere and merino sweater, which will be wonderfully gentle against your skin.
Look for relaxed designs
We all over-indulge a little (or a lot) during the Christmas period. Rather than loosening your belt buckle after dinner or wishing that dress wasn’t quite so clingy, choose gently fitting yet flattering designs that skim your figure. Relaxed tunics are especially good, coming in all kinds of glamorous finishes, while skirts and soft trousers with elasticated waists ensure your absolute comfort from sofa to table and back again.
Add shimmer and sparkle
Subtle finishes aren’t just sophisticated. They’re more versatile too, allowing you to style them in all kinds of different ways all year round. Leave glitter and sequins behind and choose soft, shimmery styles, elegant devoré and bright festive colours instead, then add a twinkly pendant or earrings for a final touch of sparkle.
Create a Christmas capsule
If you’re looking for ideas to wear right across the festive period, consider a two-piece dress. These coordinating tops and skirts are three outfits in one. Wear the skirt with a soft jumper on Christmas Eve, pair with the matching top for the look of a dress on Christmas Day, then team the top with soft jersey trousers on Boxing Day. Better still, ours are crafted from comfortable supersoft jersey and come in all kinds of gorgeous colours and prints. Ease, meet elegance – dressing up has never been simpler.
However you’re spending the festive season, we’d like to wish you a safe and happy Christmas. Let’s look forward to a brighter 2021, together.
