Christmas Day Outfit Ideas: Casual To Dressy


We all know that there are two types of people on Christmas Day. There are those that wear the carefully-chosen sequin dress they picked out weeks beforehand, and those that rock the roomy reindeer PJs that allow them to comfortably demolish a cheeseboard. 



Whichever camp you’re in, we’ve got your Christmas Day outfits covered with plenty of flattering dressy options, as well as cosy everyday favourites. We’ve also got some lovely in-between options for those that want to make an effort without trying too hard (OK, maybe there are three festive personality types after all).

What To Wear On Christmas Day


Cosy Chic Christmas Morning

Let’s kick things off with a laid-back yet stylish outfit for opening those presents. Opt for a chunky knit sweater paired with festive leggings or cosy joggers. Throw on some fluffy socks or cute slippers to keep those tootsies warm as you unwrap your Christmas goodies. Top it off with a messy bun or a Santa hat for that extra touch of holiday cheer.

Sparkle All Day Long

If you’re planning a Christmas brunch or afternoon gathering, why not go for a look that sparkles as much as the tinsel on the tree? A sequined or metallic dress is the perfect choice for adding some glamour to your day. Pair it with ankle boots or elegant flats for a look that’s both festive and comfortable.

Christmas Sweater Extravaganza

Embrace the festive tradition of the Christmas sweater with pride. Choose a delightfully festive sweater featuring reindeer, snowmen, or even a quirky Santa. You’ll not only be on-brand but also cosy and ready for all the Christmas photo ops. Pair it with jeans or a cute skirt to balance out the kitsch.

Christmas Lunch Elegance

Now, let’s talk about the pièce de résistance – the Christmas lunch outfit. When it comes to the main event, you want to strike the right balance between comfort and style. A chic wrap dress or a velvet jumpsuit is a fantastic choice. These options are not only festive but also forgiving enough to accommodate that extra helping of Christmas pudding.

Classic Christmas Colours

You can never go wrong with the classic Christmas colour palette. Red and green are the stars of the show during the holiday season. Opt for a red sweater paired with a green skirt or vice versa. Throw on some statement earrings or a bold necklace to add a touch of sophistication to your look.
