Christmas is a time of festivities, family lovin’ and good food. Christmas is also about ugly, loud jumpers that aren’t always for everybody. Sure, you might wear it around the house upon your pushy grandma’s request, but outside? Probably not. That’s why here at Union Times we’ve come up with 5 Christmas themed outfits that are safe to wear anywhere while still embracing the merry vibes!
Sometimes it’s okay to wear a dress that’s of one colour and nothing else. What separates it from the rest is the detail. Christmas is usually spent with family and friends, so you want to be comfortable but still presentable. Loose but fitted midi dresses are therefore always a good choice. This sleeveless wrap dress is both classy and elegant, giving the impression that you have put in some effort without having to actually do much at all. The winning point, however, has to be the burgundy colour which is a key trend in Winter 2015.
For all the male readers out there, we’ve got you covered. Christmas, while festive, is also known for being a period of cold, wind and snow. If festive jumpers are not for you, there are always other options available. One style that comes to mind is cable knit. Ideal for both warmth and comfort, cable knit jumpers are also highly stylish and in season. We would suggest going for one that is of a rich bottle green or a deep red colour with a crisp white shirt underneath. Christmassy as well as smart.
Heading to a stylish Christmas party that has serious festive colour codes? Look no further, we’ve got the perfect jumpsuit for you. Jumpsuits have been something of a revelation this year so why not mark the fast approaching end of 2015 with a celebration of this style? Khaki, while considered a nude colour, is luckily also considered to be a very festive colour as it symbolises mistletoes, Christmas trees, Christmas designs and so on and so forth. With that in mind, then, opt for a khaki jumpsuit but don’t be coy on the detailing if you want to stand out!
One thing we appreciate about Christmas is how appreciative we all become of casual attire. Casual but smart. Casual but different. That’s why this red peplum lace top is your new best friend. The colour is perfect for the seasonal celebrations and the lace, see-through styling means you’re bound to stand out. Pair this with some casual midnight black skinnies for a complete look.
Another one for the guys here: checked shirts. we know, we know. This is a staple look, something you can wear all year round. Three factors make this style so popular: comfort, simplicity and casual. And conveniently enough, all three factors are very much sought after during Christmas. So, sorry, it had to make the list! Besides would you pass up on this very vintage shirt that screams cabin-inducing, fireplace-gathering, Christmas-singing fun?
And there you have it, some perfectly Christmassy garments to spark those creative juices flowing in your fashionable minds. Wishing you all a very chic Christmas indeed!
