Christmas Day Outfit Inspiration

Hello everyone! I wanted to create an inspiration post for ideas for what to wear on Christmas day!
I know from personal experience that choosing what to wear on Christmas day is always a challenge, especially deciding on how 'dressed up' to be. I have always dressed up on Christmas day, with heels a nice outfit and some fancy make up. I just like the idea of dressing up to be around the family and me and my mum have always had fun choosing Christmas day outfits, however I understand the difficulty so thought that I would try and help some of you by providing some ideas!

Look #1

Christmas Day Look 4

This is a look which I wanted to make it half way between being dressed up but still looking fantastic on Christmas day. The trouser element means that you can still be comfortable and it can still be a wearable outfit however the cut of the trousers themselves mean that the look is a classy one and the rich wine coloured coat would contrast really nicely with the classic cut white trousers. This look could easily be dressed up or down more than it is, bringing in a pair of court heels instead of wedged boots would make it more dressed up however to dress it down the pale blue accessories could be switched with just a classic black handbag and simplistic minimal jewellery.

Look #2

Christmas Day Look 3

This look was one that I wanted to make wearable in your own home, if you were having family over for Christmas and did not need to go outside and brave the Christmas weather. I adore this skirt it looks as if it would be ever so flattering for so many shapes and sizes and the jumper allows you to still be cosy in your home but would still look dressed up due to the jumper being cropped.
The classic black heels and the classic dark red lip would give this look the classy edge perfect for Christmas lunch.

Look #3

Christmas Day Look 2
This look is my favourite of all of the looks I have created - mainly because it is black... However I just think this dress is beyond stunning and the shoes would work so well with the clear shoulders and then the straps around your ankles from the heels would work really well.
I kept the accessories gold as I think that gold is a seriously Christmassy colour and is always a good choice when accessorising anything black as they compliment one another really well. I just adore the ease and simplicity of this look yet you would look so so classy.

Look #4

Christmas Day Look
I think this look is ever so Christmassy, I decided this year that I wanted to wear the super traditional red and I chose a fabulous red lace dress from H and M and this look is another way of really working red for a Christmas day outfit.
This red skirt caught my eye and I fell in love, I love the ballet aspect of it and how all the rest of the outfit is black making it stand out and really be the centre of the outfit. I think a statement skirt is a great way to dress up on Christmas as it is not necessarily as dressed up as a dress or as laid back as trousers, I think it can be a perfect medium.  
I really hope you enjoyed this post and enjoyed the looks!
I will list all the items used below so you can shop elements of the looks if you want to!

Christmas party looks!

Hello everyone! I thought that I would get on my Polyvore, link here! And create some looks for Christmas Parties as the party season is upon us as people are staring to be off for the holidays and work's nights outs are a common occurrence. Therefore I thought that it would be a good idea to give you some inspiration for looks so you can create looks based around similar pieces featured in the looks or shop the whole looks themselves! (all the links will be at the end of the post).
I hope that this will be a useful source of inpiration for how to look stylish in the right way for these winter months!

Look #1

Christmas Look
A look using a fur coat was a complete must for me when creating these looks, this look in particular would work really well with any coloured fur coat as the base colour of the outfit itself is black making it as versatile as an outfit gets. I used a pair of heeled boots, a staple for colder nights out and especially good for if you know you will not be staying in one place on the night and it will require some walking. A black pair of jeans is always a warm option and the addition of the heeled boots and the red lip just add the edge and make you look more put together for a party occasion.

Look #2

Winter Party Look

This party look I think would be best for those events where you know that it will not be on the move too much. The main aspects of this look are again the comfort of the black boots and then the theme colours of burgundy and camel tones, these two colours are very warm and work very well this time of year. The look under the coat is a simple one, paired with some opaque black tights and it would look so chic. A winged liner and matching maroon/deep red lipstick would look amazing with this look.

Look #3

Party Look 2

 This look is a little bit more eye catching and sparkly, as you can probably tell by the dress. I think that this would be a fabulous source of inspiration for those of you looking for a more stand out in the crown party look. The simplistic details around the dress itself make it easy to dress up or dress down, meaning you could wear it for a works party or just a Christmas party with your friends. Chunky block heels mean it would be easy to wear all night as (hopefully) it would mean you can keep the foot rubbing to a minimum!!
I really hope that you enjoyed this post and would like to see more! Please let me know if you have any posts in particular that you would like to see and I will see what I can do!
I will list the links to the items in the images below!
