Sequins, sparkle and sumptuous velvets, here’s our edit of the best practical and chic dresses for Christmas Day
You’re probably in one of two camps: either an ‘I wear PJs or my favourite loungewear on Christmas Day’ person, or an ‘I always get dressed up and want to feel fabulous on Christmas Day’ person. Well, this year feels a bit different and after months of trackies and leggings in lockdown, wearing them again on the 25th just doesn’t feel that exciting. The novelty has well and truly worn off.
However, comfort will still be at the top of our list of requirements, especially if you’re hosting - being restricted when cooking is far from ideal.
We’ve edited the best dresses to wear on Christmas Day. They’re all super stylish and come with all the festive feels, loose waistlines, dark colours (in case of spillage) and high comfort factor. Join us in getting all dressed up and feeling fabulous on Christmas Day.
