Yes, yes, I’ve said it. The ‘C’ word again. More importantly is the ‘O’ word… Outfit.
Christmas is one of THE most photographed times of the year. Whether it’s meals with family, Christmas Day or works dos. You are going to be in pictures spanning decades, with future generations looking back at wonderful memories. You want to feel amazing, right?!
Every year myself and my family do a themed look. We’ve had hats, red, jumpers – oh man, I love a Christmas jumper, but now I’m 30, this year I want to wear something spectacular. Something special that I can look back on photos and see a young woman, wife, young(ish) Mum who never goes out, so doesn’t get the opportunity to go glam. I want to really treat myself to something lovely!
I’ve been lusting after THE ONE so have been trawling shops & websites and have put together some of my FAVOURITE Christmas outfits! I’ll cover extraaaa glam, maternity, fun & budget options…
HIGHER END (TOTAL £219)
So you fancy splurging out on a real cracker? This stunning Iridescent Green Gabby Sequin Plunge Dress is £48 from Motel Rocks and I’m sure you will agree, it depicts the Christmas party scene in all it’s wonderful, sequinned glory!
I’m teaming it with beautiful gold jewellery. No necklace required with this gorgeous neckline! I actually think this outfit is so gorgeous without any other jewellery pieces – don’t want to go overboard!
But we cannot neglect the ears… I picked these earrings from House of Fraser (£42 down from £60). These stunning earrings are the perfect design for this style of dress. Not too showy but just bold & sparkly enough to tie the look together. Delicate but fancy (Mikey Cubic Baguette Square Design).
Finally, I would pair these beautiful Carvela Stiletto Ankle Boots from John Lewis (£129) to pull the whole look together!
Total price: £219
BUDGET OPTION (TOTAL COST: £38.48)
If, like me, you could only DREAM of having £200+ to splurge on the dress of your dreams, there is hope guys! I hope you’ll agree this budget outfit will make you feel every ounce the Christmas Princess you absolutely are;
Crushed Velvet Dress £10.99 from eBay! And no, it’s not from China – it has the trusty “FAST & FREE” sign so you could be in it within a couple of days! Perfect party season dress.
This gorgeous Snake Chain Necklace from Accessorize would look fab as it sits on the necklace making it look truly part of the dress, and only £7.50 too!
I would wear this bare legged with these beautiful Faux Suede boots, only £19.99 from Shoezone!
A beautiful outfit which won’t look budget at all!
Total Price: £38.48
MATERNITY (TOTAL COST: £37.98)
I’ve been there, being pregnant on Christmas Day can be no fun when it comes to choosing a gorgeous outfit. The good news is that maternity wear is improving all the time!
This simple but oh so beautiful Lara Wrap Dress from Boohoo is not only gorgeous, but really affordable at only £15!
I think it would look stunning with these £4.99 Silver Drop earrings from New Look!
And these gorgeous £17.99 kitten heeled sandals from New Look! Low enough to carry a bump without falling over, glam enough for Christmas!
What a beautiful and glamorous outfit for a Mum to be!
Total Price: £37.98
FESTIVE (TOTAL COST: £51.99)
I absolutely have to start with these. How cute are these earrings from Accessorize?! Only £3, so festive!
Continuing with the ABSOLUTELY LOVING CHRISTMAS theme, how about this fab dress with all the trimmings from eBay?! £8.99!
And your boots have to resemble a sexy Santa, right?! I’ve picked these from Missguided at £40!
