Christmas Day Outfit Ideas

What do you wear on Christmas Day? I never really think about it until the big morning itself but this year I thought I would be more mindful. It’s one day where you have to find the right balance between smart (for the oldies), comfortable (for the jobs) fun (for the kids) and it ultimately has to be what you want to wear.



My Tick List (not all at once!) 

Colour. Usually red. Green, gold and winter white also works.

Sparkle. There has to be a bit of sequin or glitter somewhere!

Cosy. A warm jumper will mask a multitude of sins. Too tight is of limits as who wants to hold back on the chestnut stuffing.

Comfortable. Flat shoes or boots! Unless you are going out for lunch or dinner, heels are off limit as I find tottering around on carpet rather odd.


I love this festive red knit.

Red Jumper

This cashmere funnel neck from Marks would be a dream to own.

Cashmere Roll Neck

Perhaps the ripped jeans wouldn’t go down too well at church, so upgrade to some smarter ones.

You could try these really luxe Velvet Trim ones that have a broad line of velvet down the side.


Or these button detail high rise ones are really flattering, as they draw the eye up and down.


I love this check shirt, but to avoid looking like Worzel Gummage add a slick of red lipstick.

So in an ideal world, Mr R would like me to where something like this.

Sequin Dress

But that’s not going to happen. (Sorry darling!) If you do want to add a splash of glamour on Christmas Day why not try a sequin skirt and slouchy jumper (possibly not so short as the below but I do love this outfit).


The black roll neck tones it down.

sequin skirt

This season, Marks and Spencer electric blue sequin skirt has been a sell out. I love it.

Blue Skirt

This black funnel neck is a wardrobe staple that we would get lots of air time.

These red pom pom earrings are rather festive and fun.

Red Pom Pom

If pom poms aren’t your thang, these crystal earrings are beaut. At £9 they are an absolute steal!

Crystal Earrings

You can never have too many pairs of opaque tights.  They keep you cool when it’s warm inside and keep you warm when its cold outside. Perfect if you have hit the menopause and have an out of control body clock!

What’s your festive style? I imagine you are too busy to think about it and ultimately it doesn’t matter what you wear.  As long as you think of others, be kind and helpful – that’s the best outfit you can wear! x
