Men and women alike can easily find themselves in a tissy when they realise a few days before Christmas Day or a Christmas Party/event that they have absolutely nothing presentable to wear. So you don’t neccassarily need to be dressed from head-to-toe in a brand new outfit, but it is nice to dress up once in a while; feeling confident. Today’s post is all about decently priced clothing that you might like to purchase for yourself or someone dear to wear over the festive period including new year’s eve/day. I have additionally selected a few children’s clothing items as there are plenty of brands who make comfortable, affordable yet nice looking attire for children.
For Christmas and New year parties you are most likely going to spend quite a few hours at the venue, so even though the dress code may typically be ‘smart’ clothing it’s best to wear something as comfortable as possibly by adopting a smart/casual theme. These (pictured below) Navy Super Skinny Tuxedo Trousers from ASOS (30.00) sets the basis of the ‘well dressed’ look. Despite being well fitted these trousers are make from stretchable fabric. Pair these trousers with black brogues or low trainers of a dark colour. Other than choosing a shirt, a fitted woolen jumper that it’s too long in length and of a earthy tone will work well. If you are looking for something more relaxing to wear, possibly at home or your parent’s home, a Topman have a Navy and Red Christmas Fair Isle Jumper (25.00) that isn’t too overwhelming with colour or pattern.
Children’s wear: There isn’t much to say about children’s clothing as there are simply many cute, well made choices from affordable brands. Here is a selection of what stores/online shops have to offer this year:
The clothing industry target women more than men, meaning there are infinite outfit possibilities within our selections for events ceasing 2017. It’s not all about finding the perfect dress: throwing you into the limelight, it’s about finding something that isn’t going to break the bank after you’ve spent out on many other luxurious products and food for December. If you are looking for a femine fluttering red dress, very.com are selling a Guess Cinzia Dress for £70.00, originally £100. It is a lace dress with underlayering in the body and skirt, with three-quarter length sleeves. If you wear this dress or one similar to it, just make sure to be sensible and wear tights and a long thick coat if you are going to spend Christmas or New Year’s away from home. Suede shirts and clothing with beads or rhinestones randomly sewn on are this Autumn and Winter’s trend. Dorothy Perkins have a simple take on this with their Black Rhinestone Suedette Mini Skirt at £28.00. If a more ‘layed back’ approach is what you are seeking ASOS and brands on their website have endless cosy oversized jumpers to choose from including jumper dresses made from wool blends. ASOS have a 70% off party wear sale that ends tomorrow! If you need an excuse to but new shoes then Dune have 20%-70% off selected items.
