I always think dressing for Christmas is a tricky one. For most people, Christmas Day involves slobbing about at home, watching telly, drinking booze, and eating. Lots of eating. Which is obviously quite uncomfortable when you’re wearing your best sequin pencil skirt and 4 inch heels.
We’ve always ‘dressed up’ for Christmas but after last year – when I wore a bodycon dress with control tights and paid the price in stomach cramps – I decided to look for something a little more relaxed.
So, all this week I’ll be featuring outfits that allow for a casual, comfortable Christmas without sacrificing that bit of sparkle. My first is ridiculously simple – an oversized chunky knit, the world’s most comfortable tailored trousers and some serious (yet flat!) party shoes. I recommend you all go out and buy these trousers IMMEDIATELY as they’re just brilliant – an elasticated waist (no button to dig in after all that turkey), loose, tapered fit and seamed front make them ideal for smartening up without feeling restricted.
