Christmas is one of my favourite holidays. Despite the joys of reconnecting with family and over-eating to your heart’s content, an inevitable dilemma exists: what am I going to wear?! Between making sure you don’t burn your potluck contribution and avoiding relentlessly nosey relatives, the holidays are stressful enough. The last thing you want to worry about is what you’re going to wear. I’m taking the stress out of getting dressed so that you can focus on what’s really important on: pigging out on mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. I’ve got a few cute and totally comfortable outfits cookin’ (pun intended), and I’m excited to share them with you!
1. Coloured Bottoms
Wearing coloured denim is one of my favourite ways to incorporate a statement piece into an outfit. Pair with a drapey neutral top (great for hiding that food baby) and incorporate some pattern play with your footwear to round out your ensemble.
2. A Snazzy T-shirt
Depending on where your dinner is, you may need to crank up the fancy notch (does that exist? well, now it does). An upscale t-shirt with a gorgeous texture like velvet or suede is the perfect solution. It looks and feels elevated without compromising the comfort of your favourite cotton tee. Accessorize with classic pieces and pair with clean wash denim to avoid overdressing for the occasion.
3. Classic Plaid with a Cozy Cardigan
A classic fall outfit calls for pairing a plaid shirt with a cozy cardigan. You simply can’t go wrong! This is the best outfit for a day spent curled up on the couch, catching up with family members, and watching football (or, at least, pretending to).
4. A Versatile Jumpsuit
Wear a jumpsuit and you’ve got an instant outfit that will be drawing all sorts of compliments from the family. And, it’s a one-and-done piece that takes away the stress of trying to coordinate a head-to-toe ensemble. Simply layer with a jacket, some fun accessories, and voilà – instant outfit.
5. Elevated Denim
Trade in your classic jeans for a pair of elevated denim. Whether its embroidery, a playful hem, or bold distressing, focus on what stands out and draw attention to the detailing (not the cranberry sauce stain that may or may not be on your thigh) and finish your look with simple pieces like a cozy striped sweater and ankle booties.
