Tonight is Christmas eve, and I thought I would do a last minute outfit post, just in case you don’t know what to wear.
And also, obviously, because I like it. The thing that I tried (aka was kind of forced) to do, is create outfits with everyday items. I don’t really have anything super festive, shimmery, glittery or anything like that in my wardrobe and I didn’t really want to buy anything just for this, so I tried to use items from my closet that maybe are a bit more fancy or that I don’t really reach for all that much. So it’s a win win situation really, I create some (hopefully) cute outfits and I style some pieces that I don’t usually wear.
Dress: H&M – Belt: H&M – Tights: H&M – Boots: Mango
Outfit number one features the most snuggly dress ever. It is a pretty wide fit, so to give me my shape back a little bit, I threw on a simple black belt. Of course, during Christmas dinners I would take this off so I can eat more, but to start of the day I feel like the belt is perfect. I paired it with some fun polka dotted tights and my OTK boots to dress the whole look up a bit. I love the warm winter vibes of this outfit, but it is still a little bit fun and fancy with the boots and the tights.
Sweater: Axiome – Skirt: Bristol – Heels: Dune London
This second look is perfect for a fancy occasion, but it is still very soft and comfortable, and aside from the bare legs and heels also pretty warm. I paired my soft red cashmere sweater with this knitted skirt that I got from my mother-in-law a while ago. I love the look of these together, very professional. For shoes I went for these gorgeous heels to keep the look classy and dressed up. Because both the top and skirt are warm winter fabrics, I feel like I can just about get away with bare legs. I love how the sweater gives the whole outfit that festive touch, but it’s still pretty neutral as well.
Top: Zeeman – Skirt: Secondhand – Boots: Mango
An almost monochrome look for the third outfit. I have had this outfit idea in my head for so long, and now that I have these boots I can finally actually wear it. The top and skirt are the perfect burgundy red, and thus pair really well together. The boots are added to keep my legs nice and warm, but also dress it all up that bit extra. It is a very covered up outfit, so perfect for the colder days, but it is still fun, festive and, because of the tighter top, you don’t lose your shape in the outfit. I am desperate to wear this out this season, I just don’t know where yet..
Sweater: H&M – Dress: Mango – Tights: H&M – Shoes: Sacha
Going a little more casual for look number four. I threw this big white sweater over a little black dress, so it looks like I’m wearing a skirt. The dress I am wearing here is a fake suede material, so it gives a fun and different texture to the look. I paired it with another pair of printed tights (although you can’t really see in the photo), this time a knit print, to add to that cozy feeling. For shoes I went with my favourite booties, again to keep this a little more comfortable. I like how this look is a little dressy, but not too dressed up, and I’ll probably wear this to Christmas dinner with the in-laws, and on other winter days as well.
Top: Secondhand – Jeans: Only – Shoes: Dune London
Outfit number 5 is probably what I’ll be wearing to Christmas dinner at my grandma’s house, mostly because this top used to be hers and I know she loves these heels. I also feel like this would make a fun and slightly different New Year’s Eve look. The top is a gorgeous sheer navy top, with velvet flowers on it. I wore a little black cami underneath, but this with a lace black bra(lette) would also be amazing. I paired it with some faux leather jeans and again the studded heels to really dress things up. If you’re not particularly into skirts and dresses but still want to dress up, I think something like this works really well. Throw on a fun glittery handbag and you’re good to go!
Cardigan: Zeeman – Shirt: Banana Republic – Jeans: Levis – Shoes: Dune London
I had to throw in a more casual look, and this one in particular is also a little bit Santa-ish. I paired a simple white blouse with a fun red cardigan for the ultimate Christmas vibe. To keep things casual I paired the whole look with black jeans and black loafers. This would also look good with a pair of black pumps or (heeled) boots, but I felt like the loafers kept things nice and comfortable. It’s a look that is great for everyday casual occasions, but still has that nod to the festive season.
Pajamas: Hunkemöller – Slippers: Wambat
When all the festivities are over, you’ve eaten your weight in all the yummy Christmas foods and you’ve had a few (too many) glasses of wine, there’s nothing better than slipping on some comfy cozy pajamas and watching a Christmas movie, so I had to include my lazy look as well. I picked up this lovely red matching set the other day, it is soft and cozy and still looks a bit cuter than an over-sized sweater & sweatpants combo. Of course I will be wearing either slippers, Uggs or cozy socks, because what else?
And that is my little Christmas look book, although I feel like you can wear most of these looks out for other occasions as well, maybe with a few minor tweaks. I’ve pretty much got my outfits for all the family visits sorted, let me know what you will be wearing!
