Our favourite Christmas outfit ideas

The season is demanding, we know. So while you make sure the Christmas tree, stocking stuffers and guest lists are in place, we decided to compile a list of 10 outfit options to carry you through.
1) Faux velvet greens – This has featured on almost every list of outfit ideas for the season, and we agree that there is something undeniably Christmas-y about it. Whether you wear it short or long, this colour-fabric duo is a head-turner. If you’re not satisfied with only one Christmas colour, throw on red heels to complete the look.
2) Sequins – If its party season, you’ll see sequins everywhere. From little black sequined dresses to fringed skirts, they’re a favourite amongst all those who don’t shy away from a little bling. If you don’t want to go all out, pick a sleeveless sequined top and tone it down with a pair of dark-coloured bottoms and a jacket.
3) Frills in red – Red is another loved colour of the season. Give your everyday red dress a festive feel by adding some frills to it.
4) Faux fur – Faux fur jackets and stoles are perfect to take you from Christmas lunch to late-night celebrations. You can throw it over your handbag during the day and fling it on once the night gets colder.
5) Suited up – If you’re looking for something more formal, a red blazer along with a pair of matching trousers is chic, comfortable and Christmas-y. Unless you’re trying to copy Santa’s style, we suggest swapping the traditional white shirt with something more shimmery or bold.
6) Fringed party jackets – Shaggy jackets with layers of fringes look incredibly cute. Stick to pastel shades and pair with a basic top for a casual yet stylish look.
7) Puffed sleeves – Broad shoulders and puffed sleeves are staples this season. If you want to keep up with the festive vibes but prefer to keep it minimalistic, opt for a bright coloured or floral top with puffed sleeves for that added oomph.
8) Mustard sweaters – Mustard yellow is the go-to colour for this time of the year. It’s warm, mellow and soothing but still has an element of vibrancy about it. Mustard sweater dresses have been a top pick for the season. As a simple sweater, the colour also works great to add some life to an otherwise monotone outfit below.
9) Christmas captioned tops – Text T-shirts are so much fun. Get creative and come up with your own catchy lines for the season. Get them printed on basic T-shirts and pair with plain or fancy bottoms.
10) Red plaids – Plaids are winter must-haves. For your Christmas outfit, pick a red plaid shirt or coat-frock and dress it up with some fancy accessories and knee-high boots.
