For those not spending Christmas at home in their pj's, what to wear can loom like a grinch in the weeks leading up to the big day.

Whether you plan on spending it by the pool, dressing casually for the in-laws or ramping up the sparkle, pre-planning your Christmas Day style is as important as prepping the turkey. 

We’re here to take the stress out of it. Shop our edit of effortless Christmas Day dressing now (the bird can wait). 


Isabel Marant dress, Ganni knot bag, and Isabel Marant sunglasses.

The first outfit is arguably the hardest outfit of the day. A late night followed by an early morning can make you wonder if you can actually get through Christmas! A quick outfit change is good, especially when you've still got presents to wrap, pancakes to flip, and potatoes to peel. A beautiful dress or tee and floral skirt are both chic no-brainers, and big sunnies will easily hide last night’s excesses….



Altuzarra Dress, Marni Bag and Isabel Marant Sandals.

As showstopping as evening glitz and sparkle can be, classic day pieces always take the Christmas cake. Believe it or not, some of this season's most beautiful pieces are — whisper it — comfortable and generous enough for a second helping.




Pippa Holt kaftan, Isabel Marant sunglasses and denim slides.

 If you are lucky enough to be lazing on your sun lounge, make sure you do it in style. Beautifully cut bathers require a little coverage and some statement extras. Today is extra special, let's take it up a notch....



 Add some baubles...




La DoubleJ Keira Dress.

 After weeks of parties, you probably feel too tired to make small talk, so ensure your outfit is fabulous enough to do all the chitchat. Gold and sparkles are perfect and instantly lift a tired or lacklustre complexion. Add a spritz of Cire Trudon, a slick of red lippie, and let your style be the star of the party.



Pair with some delicious side dishes...



Ulla Johnson bathers and sarong, Le Hat, and Isabel Marant sunglasses

 Boxing Day tradition is all about comfort and eating leftovers. Armed with loose comfy pieces and sunglasses to hide tired eyes, lounge in style or suit up and hit the beach. Relax - anything goes now…
