5 outfits for a christmas around the world
If you’re lucky enough to be travelling to a faraway destination this Christmas, time for you to find an outfit that suits the climate and the atmosphere of the country. Plan ahead and choose light, colorful staples if you’ll be spending the holidays in the sun or take warm yet chic clothes with you to enjoy a white Christmas in style. And if you’re staying in the comfort of your home this end of year, you might get inspired by these exotic places to jazz up your traditional Christmas outfit with bold fabrics and playful patterns.
Lucky enough to be experiencing Christmas in the midst of summer, Australians spend the holidays at the beach feasting on delicious barbecues. A floral summer dress will take you from Christmas lunch to the seaside where you can spend the rest of the day tanning in a bikini. Wear a pair of sensual pumps for added femininity that you can easily take off when walking on hot sand. For all your beach essentials, carry with you a large basket where you can also fit some small presents for your loved ones. Add some sparkle with a pair of drop gold earrings.
If you’re spending the holidays discovering the rich culture of India, you’ll notice that saris are the outfits worn on big festivities. Get inspired by the vibrant colors seen on the local markets and fabrics to choose a maxi dress that fits the cheerful atmosphere. Make sure the gown covers your shoulders and knees to respect traditions but you can of course be playful with the pattern and choice of color. Pair with wedge espadrilles to lengthen the silhouette and mix and match golden jewelry for a dramatic evening look.
If you’re going on a romantic getaway these holidays and chose an exotic country like Mexico, chances are you’ll be spending Christmas sipping cocktails under the palm trees. Your outfit then needs to be chic yet comfortable with some playful details like fringes on a long white skirt. Pair this statement staple with a simple silk camisole and raffia mules that gives a summer touch to your look. Shining earrings and a crystal-embellished clutch are great accessories for a sparkling Christmas wherever you are.
There’s nothing more authentic than a white Christmas and if you’re spending the holidays in a freezing country like Russia, you’ll need warm clothes to face the cold while still looking stylish. A little black dress is always a win especially if you’re going on a fancy dinner and choose a lace version for added sophistication. Pair with glittery heels for a festive touch that you can easily carry with you and swap when arriving at the restaurant. Silver accessories will brighten your look and have you ready for a party!
Spending the holidays in the South has the advantage of being able to enjoy a warmer climate while staying perfectly in the Christmas mood. You’ll certainly end up dancing the night away after your dinner so make sure to wear a light and comfortable wrap dress, and a pair of low heel sandals that have been given a sparkling touch. A velvet blazer is a chic and on-trend staple that is just warm enough and perfectly in line with the holiday spirit. Add golden earrings and a graphic handbag to turn your look into an elegant combination.
