You got that Christmas dinner coming up — what are you gong to wear? Whether you want to be the star of the party or the good daughter-in-law (at least look the part of) — we’ve got you covered. Check our Christmas dinner outfit edit below handpicked by our style experts.
Why should tops always take all the attention? Make your pants the center of the show by choosing a pair that has an interesting silhouette, texture or stand-out color or pattern. Accompany it with with a simple tshirt, silk camisole or mock neck and you’d have a dinner look worth remembering. For skinny cut pants – pair with a nice pair of mid-height or tall heels. For wider legged pants — go with either high heels for a more sharp look and sneakers for a edgy one.
What’s a Christmas without a Christmas sweater? Not only is it the signature festive item, it also allows for maximum gut expansion with minimum look alteration — something you might find useful among turkeys, pies and Christmas puddings. Pair your sweater with a sleek pair of leggings, skinny jeans, or a midi skirt and you would be able ready to sparkle and feast at the dinner of the season.
For those of us who like to free ourselves from the tyranny of pants, go for a midi skirt, and wear it with a sweater or a simple top. If you have nice ankles, this is a chance to highlight them pairing your skirt with boots tight on the ankles or strappy heels.
Unlike the mini, which can be too skimpy for the occasion, or the maxi, which can overwhelm the figure and go too boho, the midi is perfect for a semi-formal dinner. We need to look no further than Victoria Beckham or Megan Markle for examples on how to perfect the midi dress look. Pair them with pumps and you’re good to go!
What might you be most thankful for in a scenario where you have to stand around mingling and chatting before the actual dinner? Low heels — and thank goodness they are on trend. From kitten heels to block heels — these styles guarantee comfortable soles without the sacrifice of killer style. Perfect to be paired with any of the above outfit suggestions, a great pair of low heels will guarantee a fun night out this festive season.
