Christmas day outfits

The festive season is upon us! A time to improve our wintry moods with a spot of festive sparkle! Speciality drinks, nights out, warm clothes and festive cheer are all things that many of us have been looking forward to, especially if you have a Christmas event lined up. 

Christmas parties are no longer a distant marker in the calendar, but happening all around us. But what about the actual day? You don’t want to overlook that. With the countdown to Christmas in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about what you will be wearing on the big day – and we are here to help!

Why your Christmas Day outfit is important

In the crazy busy pre-Christmas days, it’s easy to overlook the day itself. You’re busy shopping for gifts, enjoying days out, and celebrating with friends. But it’s actually all about the day! You don’t want to wake up on Christmas morning and realise you forgot to plan your Christmas Day outfit in the busyness of the season.

Whether you choose a casual Christmas Day outfit or a more formal look, picking out an outfit that is special for the day will help you feel more festive. You’ll also have the chance to really show off your chosen look with the friends and family you spend the day with. 

The great thing about a Christmas Day outfit is that it doesn’t need to be overtly Christmassy, leaving you with the scope to pick out a stylish, yet comfortable option that can be reused for events throughout the year.

Formal women’s Christmas Day outfit ideas

If you are preparing to get dressed up this Christmas then you will be looking for festive formal inspiration. From dresses and skirts to two-piece sets and playsuits, there really is something to suit everybody’s style. 



We love sparkles, velvet and drama to set the tone with festive colour choices for the best effect. Adding in some stylish heels and festive jewellery will finish the look and help you feel as festive as possible. It’s wise to remember that most people over indulge on Christmas Day, so pick out an outfit that won’t feel too constrictive, leaving you free to enjoy all the treats on offer, even if you’ve gone down the formal route.

Men’s formal outfit ideas for Christmas Day

It’s not just women who want to look great on Christmas Day, but men want to look their best too! The great news for men is that a formal Christmas outfit is easy to assemble and can be varied to suit the tone of the day. 

For example, a suit looks great at ultra-formal events, with a smart shirt and a festive tie or bow tie. If the day is semi-formal then a suit with an open collar and no tie will work well too. 

Men can accessorise their formal look with a festive pocket square and Christmas themed socks without spoiling the smart look they are working to achieve. Yes, Christmas Day is when brightly coloured themed socks work out!

Comfy Christmas Day outfits for everyone

Formal Christmas outfits do look fantastic but if you’re more about feeling cosy this Christmas then why not choose something festive that has your comfort in mind? You can find a wide range of novelty Christmas jumpers to buy and then pair it with your comfiest jeans, skirt or trousers. 

If you want to be even more comfy, then pick out a pair of warm and soft Christmas pyjamas and enjoy wearing them all day – you can even find matching sets for the whole family for cute, festive photos. If it’s just the family together for Christmas Day, without anyone to impress, then a day in your comfiest clothes might be just what Santa calls for.

Don’t forget the kids this Christmas

Christmas outfits aren’t just for the adults. There are plenty of great choices for the kids too! Indeed, a new Christmas Day outfit is a wonderful tradition to start – and teaching them to buy preloved to save some money and help the planet is even better. A great way of getting them dressed and ready when the excitement of their gifts is hard to pull away from.



From pretty dresses to chinos and shirts, there is nothing stopping you from creating outfits that harmonise and complement the grown-ups when you select Christmas outfits for kids. It’s Christmas – cheesiness works! It’s a good idea to remember that Christmas is a time where your children will want to get involved in everything that is going on, meaning that it is a good idea to get them outfits that look great but are also easy to move around in so that they can play. 

Christmas pyjamas were made for little ones! Pop some festive children’s pyjamas in their Christmas Eve box and you stand the best chance of getting excited little ones off to bed before the man in red puts in an appearance. Plus, it means they look super cute for their stocking and gift opening photos in the morning too! 

Creating a Christmas themed home

Christmas isn’t complete without sprucing up your home for the big day. You can invest in beautiful decorations, table settings and homeware to finish the Christmas feel so that it oozes Christmas everywhere you look. If you are seriously organised then there is nothing stopping you from taking your colour themes and using them in your outfits too.

We know belts are a little tighter for everyone this year, so shopping for preloved homeware is a perfect way to save some money.
