Four Festive Outfits To Wear Over Christmas
style and fashion
Come Christmas morning, are you a unicorn onesie and fluffy slippers kind of woman, or are you more into going for all-out festive glam? We tend to fall into both camps, and know that most women like to mix things up with their style choices over the Christmas season.
We also know that planning aforementioned outfits in advance can be stressful (not quite as stressful as Christmas shopping – although we’ve tried to make your stocking filler shopping a bit easier with these helpful suggestions) so we’re going to break it down with some very simple looks.
Whatever you have planned over the Christmas holidays, here’s how to do it in style…
Christmas Drinks With The Girls
If you can’t wear a red dress at least once over the Christmas break, when can you? As we assume many women will have the same idea, it’s important to choose the right dress, as well as complementing it with the best, statement accessories.
You can’t go wrong with this Access Fashion red tailored dress, as it’s a versatile investment that can be dressed up or down over the next few months. Not to mention – thanks to its superb quality – for many other years to come.
Pair with a faux fur cropped jacket – all the rage as far as festive glam attire is concerned – and some dazzling accessories to make jaws drop. The Ioaku Legacy amulet and matching Ioaku Legacy earrings would make a flawless accompaniment to this stand-out festive look.

Last-Minute Christmas Shopping
Will you be battling the crowds in those last few shopping days before Christmas? Or perhaps hitting the outlets in the post-Christmas sales is more your thing? Either way, we recommend wrapping up, and maintaining dignity and style with a timeless, smart-casual look. Especially since all of our festive shopping trips usually end up with a celebratory dinner or doubling up as an overdue catch-up with friends.
Stay chic and keep out the chill at the same time by layering this Access Fashion black tailored jacket with an oversized scarf, as well as some matching gloves and hat too. (It also comes in camel, if that is more to your liking.)
Go hands free and accessorise with the Shona Easton large shoulder trekker bag. It’s our number one choice for big shopping trips, as it frees up our hands to rummage through rails, as well as carry all of our new purchases.

Those Final Days In The Office
As soon as we open our first advent calendar door, the atmosphere in the office changes. Employees and bosses alike become jollier, work days perhaps get shorter, and post-work events become more frequent.
Mix things up in the lead-up to Christmas with some exciting new pieces. Now is the time to experiment with bolder and more daring workwear. Say goodbye to those day-to-night transitions and additional accessories for those “just in case we go out” instances, and wear them from the moment you leave the house. It’s Christmas, no one will bat an eyelid!
Pair some wide-legged black trousers with this fabulously festive (but not too festive, so you can still wear it in January) Garcia green striped jacket. The jacket gets another seal of approval from us because of its sleek, fitted silhouette that makes it extremely flattering for all figures. It will cinch in and accentuate your waist, and let’s face it, with all the extra calories over the festive season, we’ll need all the help we can get!
Finish off the look with some gorgeous statement earrings – these Ioaku Heaven gold earrings would work perfectly – and a matching black bag. You can never go wrong with the Shona Easton Dieppe tote bag.

A Casual, Cosy Christmas Morning
On the big day, if and when you decide to get out of your PJs, we recommend adding a touch of glam by way of this green wrap over v-neck dress. The wrap detailing will definitely make you more comfortable – not to mention be more forgiving – after the inevitably gargantuan Christmas dinner.
Pair with the Ioaku green iconic zen necklace, black tights, black ankle boots, and this very cosy and Christmassy white cardigan. Oh, and a large black bag for carrying presents and smuggling mince pies.
