Christmas is associated with stress as much as it is associated with happiness – and no one knows this better than the typical university students who has been putting off work the entire term.
Thus, fashion is easily forgotten due to lack of sleep and last minute stress, and let us face it, for most of us Christmas fashion is considered to be a comfortable Onesie and Ugg boots.
However, as stressed as we might be, Christmas sees a surge of new fashion trends and we need to embrace them.
Here are three outfits inspired by the typical holidays events: “Dinner with the Family”, ” Christmas Office Party” and “Night on the Town,” and they are all affordable styles. Enjoy!
Dinner with the Family
Christmas dinner parties are a time to keep it classy and simple.
The ideal outfit for the family dinner needs a perfect balance of comfort and fashion, just like the best hot chocolate needs the perfect balance of whipped cream and marshmallows.
This year, accessorise your night of wine, turkey and tasty pudding with a fluffy knitted skirt, paired with a simple Christmas Jumper.
The textured white fabric matches the snowy atmosphere of Christmas and adds a sense of innocence to the look.
Pairing this stunning on-trend knitted skirt with a comfortable Christmas Jumper creates the perfect balance of casual and chique.
Finally, put on a pair of comfortable tassel boots and do not stress about it, because no one will even have time to notice your feet from under the indulgent dinner table.
Christmas Party at the Office
Step away from the reserved work suits and blazers, because the office Christmas party is a time to be bold and have fun.
Try going for a bright red plunge bandeau jumpsuit like this one from Topshop.
Needless to say, red is the most festive of colours and it is also the fiercest.
The jumpsuit in itself keeps the look classy and business appropriate, creating the desired combination of naughty and nice.
Go ahead and pair this with a metal plate waist belt in order to add that golden shimmer to your outfit.
You can get the perfect belt from H&M at a bargain price, but remember to polish it off with suede pointy heels in order to maintain the sophisticated look of the outfit.
Night On the Town
Going out at Christmas is as much about the experience in itself, as it is about being on point with the trends.
If Christmas has a second name this year, it would definitely be sequins.
Sequins tops, skirts and dresses bring the Christmas spirit in the form of clothes and add that special ‘je ne sais quoi’ to every outfit.
Sequins must be carefully paired with elegant and simples accessories, to avoid becoming a part of the town’s decorations landscape.
All of the attention must be placed on the item itself and the remaining articles of clothing and accessories should simply compliment it.
Pairing the dress with simple black leather platform booties elongates the legs, while still managing to keep the attention on the gorgeous dress and add a black, embossed zippered clutch to create a finished look.
