Christmas is nigh, the lights are up, the tree is decorated, the stockings are hanging by the fire and the turkey is ordered, it’s now time to think about what to wear for Christmas Day.
Christmas fun with the family is at the centre of our traditions and in many ways our Christmas fantasies. All sat together, sharing food and well wishes, gifts and love in a warm atmosphere which is more than just thanks to the log fire. Christmas day calls for a great many occasions, from Mass to lunch and drinks at relatives’ houses. Here’s a selection of elegant and cosy outfits from the Dolce&Gabbana SS13 Pre Collection.
Before Christmas comes the 24th, traditionally the evening spent with friends, drinking and being merry before turning one’s attention to the family. Here a sequins and lace trapeze shaped dress is apt for the occasion, and is certain to get the celebrations off with a bang.
A pretty black Mikado shift dress, with three quarter length sleeves printed in delicate lilies of the valley and lace overlay is perfect for the Christmas service. Belt out those hymns and enjoy high Mass before exchanging pleasantries with the Vicar.
Christmas means spending time with relatives, even your husband’s ones. Make an impression on your mother in law with this elegant ensemble of Mikado jacket with peplum waist and matching pencil skirt. The lace detail and oversize roses will make you stand out from the crowd in the right way.
After Christmas lunch slip on this trouser suit over a pair of wellies and a cashmere coat to walk the dog and chat with the neighbours. Not everyone needs to look overstuffed and flushed after Christmas lunch!
Some families traditionally celebrate Christmas over an evening meal and not a lunch. For this occasion, a balloon shape skirt dress in two-coloured lace is perfect for the occasion, warm yet stylish.
And for a Christmas cocktail party, a plumetti dress is your go to option. It’s quietly sexy while adapting perfectly to the occasion. Flirty and bouncy for a spot of dancing, with this dress you’ll close the Christmas 2012 celebrations in style.
