’Tis the season to be jolly. Think Christmas and everything warm and fuzzy comes to mind. Gift-laden Christmas trees, plum cake and mulled wine, and lots of parties—can there be a better way to ring in the year-end holidays? While you choose from your many invites, or host your own shindig, turn to our curated style ideas in the classics colour of Christmas. No regular bodycon dresses and pin-striped shirts for the holidays this year.
Women Tone down the bling with a neutral pairing, like this grey and metallic chainmail skirt. Tuck in a white shirt and contour the waist with a studded belt. Accessorise with statement jewels but keep the footwear muted.
Men Want to shine at the party but worried about looking OTT? A golden silk satin tie keeps to the colour theme without going overboard. Maintain the theme with a pair of cufflinks, over a white shirt and navy suit (preferably woollen for the cold).
Men Think Christmas and the Christmas tree green comes to mind. Pick up a heavy cable knit green cardigan and experiment with a ditsy floral shirt. Add a single-breasted waistcoat and light-washed denim, with a blue tie for a dapper look.
Women Sequins are hot favourite this holiday season. An embellished mini skirt, with denim and black heels, is an instant head turner. Throw a black leather jacket and shoulder-dusting earrings, and you are ready to be the party showstopper.
Women Move over the little red dress. Beat the chill and still stay stylish with a tribal poncho. A white shirt and skinny leather pants suffice to keep the ensemble classic and chic. Bring in some party bling with a bib neckpiece over the collar.
Men Show some celebratory swag with a pair of red trousers. Team it up with an ash grey shirt, sleek satin tie and dessert boots, for a balanced badass look. Complete the look with a buckled belt, and sunglasses for brunch soirees.
Men Go monochromatic with classic white blazer and black shirt. Brighten your mood upwith an embroidered waistcoat. Pick a white bow tie and be a classy gentleman in the party.
Women Among a sea of dresses, stand out in a jumpsuit. An unconventional take on head-to-toe white, this ladylike ensemble is best accompanied by minimal silver jewels. Keep it posh with understated heels and a monochromatic sequined clutch.
