What to wear on Christmas Day

Christmas Day isn’t far away and whether you’ve got everything wrapped up and ready to go or you’re still ticking things off the list, one thing you may not have thought about yet is what you’re going to wear on the day itself. We think the beauty of Christmas Day is that really, anything goes! If you want to spend all day in your pyjamas… do it. If you want to dress up in your most glamorous ensemble, you can. There’s no wrong answer, but if you’d like a sprinkle of inspiration then we’ve got that for you here.

Be PJ proud

Perhaps, more than any other day of the year, Christmas is a time when spending all day in your PJ’s is not only acceptable, it’s encouraged and we’re all for it! You can still go super chic when it comes to pyjamas and we’ve got some fabulous options in our Nightwear Shop for you to do just that.

This Soft Fleece pyjama set from Cuddl Duds for example, has a stylish look to it with printed trousers and a complementary block-coloured top with contrasting trim details. If matching PJ’s are more your vibe, then these embossed pyjamas from Cozee Home should be on your radar. Complete your laidback look with a cosy pair of slippers like these adorable Muk Luks slipper booties and you’ll be feeling smug all day!

Love the loungewear

So, you want the comfy feel of pyjamas but with a bit of added style? Then loungewear is your friend. Still a big trend in the world of fashion, loungewear is not going away any time soon (yay!) and there are endless options for you to find the perfect combination of comfy and chic in our loungewear range.

This Carole Hochman lounge set will make getting dressed on Christmas Day quick and easy, so you can spend more time focusing on the more important things like eating mince pies. It includes a block colour T-shirt, soft micro-fleece bottoms and a matching cardigan, making it cosy enough for around the house, while still being stylish enough for impromptu visitors or video calls.

Spread the joy

If you want to show off your Christmas spirit, then nothing says festive fun quite like a Christmas jumper. You can go as bright and playful or as subtle and sophisticated as you want as well, simply rocking the colours of the season or going for an eye-catching print.

One that is sure to go down very well with everyone that sees it is this charming Festive Dog knit from Joules, which is especially ideal for any pals of pooches and Christmas Day dog walks. Pair it with jeans or leggings for a casual yet festively stylish look, and finish it off with trainers or boots if you’re heading out, or a snuggly pair of socks if you’re staying in.

Go all-out glam

Even if you’re spending it tucked up at home, Christmas Day is a nice excuse to get dressed up. You can always split up the day too, going for a morning of lounging in pyjamas and an afternoon of glamming it up. Top tip – however glam you go, make sure it’s still something that allows you a bit of wiggle room when it comes to eating that delicious festive feast!

You can’t go wrong with a beautiful dress here and we’ve got a fantastic variety to choose from in our dresses collection, so you can find the perfect style to suit you. We’re loving this gorgeous satin midi dress from Finery right now, with its stunning all over print and elegant silhouette that will look effortlessly chic however you choose to style it. For added elegance, opt for a swipe of red lipstick to contrast with the petrol blue colour and you’ll be the best dressed at the Christmas table this year.
