When Christmas is trending on twitter, you know that the big day is fast approaching. Christmas is a time of tradition. And, another excuse to take advantage of Facebook’s vast data centres by uploading countless images of your horrific Christmas jumper, or pictures of your trip to that awesome Christmas market. Let the platitudes of praise and awe be represented in the total amount of likes or retweets your images get. Some people might not be as supportive of your style choice; however for them their comments are cathartic. With the majority of cities and homes in the UK supporting some form of decoration, now is the time to start thinking about what you’re going to wear on Christmas day! Forget the presents, they can wait. Being selfish isn’t an attractive personality trait, but December can be a hectic month. So stop searching for present ideas, and get deciding on what you’re going to wear!
What to wear on Christmas day
Like most festive activities the thought of dressing up is appealing to the masses. However, a few will not have a clue of what they’re going to wear on the special day. In fact a number of people turn to the internet to try and help them decide what to wear. Here are a few examples of what you can wear on Christmas day:
- Christmas jumper
- Christmas themed fancy dress
- Christmas onsie
- Smart or smart-casual
Depending on where you are, you might probably want to just sit around all day in your PJs and take advantage of the copious amounts of food. However, that might not be the case for everyone.
Christmas jumpers are the many dreaded Christmas presents supplied by, and knitted by older relatives. Now brands have jumped on the bandwagon, and produced some pretty questionable Christmas jumpers. You can’t go wrong wearing a Christmas jumper on the day itself. Some families even offer prizes for the worst and best Christmas jumper that year. Christmas themed fancy dress
Someone has to dress as Father Christmas after all, so why not jump at the opportunity. Other Christmas fancy dress ideas include: an elf, a reindeer or the Grinch. PJs or Christmas Onsie
If you’re at home and spending Christmas with your close family why not spend the day in PJs. It saves time getting ready, and means you can lounge around comfortably. Hopefully you decide to wear new PJs. An old forum post on Netmums.com highlights that a number of women actually prefer to spend the morning in their new PJs with their children, and then dress up. If you have some stylish or festive onsies take advantage and chill in style. Jacamo have a number definitely worth checking out!
Smart or Smart-casual
When I would spend Christmas in St. Moritz I’d usually spend the day on the slopes, and later don some smart clothes. The smart-casual look is ideal if you’re trying to impress your girlfriend’s parents. However, if you’re spending Christmas in a 5* hotel you might want to dress up, go for a tux!
