Countdown to Christmas: What to Wear While You Prepare
We wait 364 days for Christmas Eve to come and still, we’re never ready when it finally arrives. Between attending to last minute work obligations, cooking for the night to come and deciding what to wear, it’s a jam-packed day. But it’s one we always start with a breakfast with our besties – in our chicest pajamas, of course! Nothing gets us going like good gossip and a selfie session over warm, gooey pastries…
And what if you could stay in those jammies all day long? It’s a bold yet comfy move and it’s totally doable with a few styling tricks – as demonstrated by our brunette beauty throughout this shoot…
It’s inevitable that you’ll run out of something that day (wrapping paper, wine…your sanity!) and a trip to the shop is a must. Maximize your precious time and keep your pjs on - throw on a bright, bold topper and pair with statement shoes and head-turning gems for a look that says, ‘I woke up like this.’
Make your time in the kitchen a touch more glamourous with a chunky knit and silky maxi skirt. Apron optional.
BACK TO BUSINESS
For some of us, work doesn’t stop just because it’s a holiday. Finish up any last minute business by keeping it classy in a pinstriped midi skirt offset with a cheeky printed blouse and cozy teddy coat.
SILENT NIGHT? YEAH, RIGHT!
After all is said and done, the best part of the day is getting ready for the night! Christmas Eve is always a time to shine – sparkles, metallics, luxe textures are all on the menu.
Silky pajama bottoms go from day to night when worn under a sparkly party dress of the mini variety and shimmering sky-high stilettos.
LACE = GRACE
A more formal evening calls for a more formal length – and a little fun with texture. An ankle-grazing lace number is upgraded with a gem-encrusted velvet belt and red satin sandals.
LET YOUR SKIRT DO THE TALKING
Most stylists will say only wear one statement piece at a time, but during the holidays we say throw out the rulebook! Pair a statement skirt with velvet and sequin mules, a fancy fur coat and a sculpted top. If you can’t dress to the max come Christmas, when can you?
