Now I don't know about you, but I have to plan my outfits over the festive season! I'm a busy bee next week and if I don't plan my outfits, I'll A) buy something last minute, that I'll never wear again or B)wear something I'm not really comfortable in. Neither are viable options in my opinion! I've put together a few looks Christmas looks, ranging from Kris Kindle with the girls to a Family Christmas Eve celebration! I hope this helps any of you who haven't a clue what their going to wear over Christmas :)
Work Night Out: For me personally I only work with a handful of girls, and as a result we're great friends. As I work in retail, I don't have to worry about being conservative or being wary of what I wear. Of course this doesn't mean I'll go out in a hoochie dress or anything of the sort, but It's a little more relaxed as opposed in an office environment for example. I love this outfit. It's festive, fun and glamorous. It's sexy without flashing the flesh, and with the injection of pink, makes this outfit stand out a little. H&M always have sequin tops, as do Topshop. For plus size options Asos Curve, Simply Be and Yours Clothing always have something a bit sparkly ;) For Pleather skirts also try Asos/Asos Curve, River Island and Topshop! I recently got one in Topshop for €58!
Kris Kindle: The Day after I go out with the girls from work, I have a Kris Kindle evening with some of the girls,which I'm really excited about! As I'll be a little bit tired ;) I've put together a comfy outfit, with a bit of festive cheer thrown in. The world and their mother will be wearing Christmas Jumpers this year, and yours truly will be no different ;) I'll pair mine with denim hot pants, thick tights and my Topshop Vectra's. I'll no doubt be wearing something novelty on my face/head..all in the spirit of Christmas! I needn't tell y'all where to get Christmas Jumper's as all the shops are swimming with them! If you're lucky though Primark may have a few left ( Check both the men and women's sections!). Since my lips get crazily chapped after a night out, I'll have my trusted carmex on hand, as I've to prepare for the following night....
Girls Night Out: A Few of my other friends and I are going out on the Saturday before Christmas for dinner, cocktails and a night of festive fun! To be the only colour choice for a Christmas night in my opinion is red! This lovely lace dress is from Miss Selfridge, but Penney's and Asos/Asos Curve have similar ones too! I've added gold accessories to warm up the red, as well as a gorgeous Leopard print bag to make the outfit stand out. And of course not to mention Reindeer Antlers...but those are pretty much essential for Christmas.
Christmas Eve: So it's the night before Christmas, and with all the partying, the last minute shopping and the working crazy hours, let's face it you're wrecked! You want something easy to wear, that's pretty, dressy and festive! You can't go wrong with a black skater dress (bonus points if it's glittery!) It's easy to throw on and easy to accessorize. I teamed this outfit with a baby pink faux collar(From Tesco!) and a gorgeous beaded clutch from Accessorize. It looks like you've made an effort, but in reality it's pretty much an effortless outfit. Pair it with black tights and a black court shoes and you're set to go!
Christmas Day: After the excitement of present exchanging and slobbing around your Christmas Themed Jammies(Bought especially) you'll no doubt have to haul yourself up and get dressed! Personally I'm wearing a gorgeous red velvet dress on Christmas Day, as I saw it back in October and HAD TO HAVE IT. It's gorgeously ruched and is very flattering on my curvy figure! If I hadn't already seen it, I'd most likely hot foot it to River Island and pick this baby up! It's more taupe in real like and have black panels which has an instant slimming affect, which is perfect after that selection box ;)! F.Y.I plus size gals look at Simply Be, Asos Curve and Yours Clothing for something similar :) I'd keep it nice and elegant with the luxurious Wolford tights and suede platforms for gold detailing, a long with gold accessories. To finished the outfit off I'd wear this gorgeous Faux Fur coat, and a slick of MAC "Ruby Woo" Lipstick :)
St Stephens Day/Boxing Day: Now after all the eating and drinking over the last couple of days, if you have to get dressed and go out in St Stephens Day you want to be comfortable! No doubt after Christmas Day, you're still stuffed! If I go out I plan on wearing an outfit very similar to this! An Over sized Dressy Jumper, wet look leggings and wedges are one of my all time favorite outfit combinations! Add a clutch, bright lippy and a statement necklace, and you'll be ready to continue the festivities! There are tones of over sized jumpers in all stores, both straight sized and plus size, as well as wet look leggings! This Particular jumper is from Romwe, an online store, that I'm falling in love with! It definitely feeds my over sized clothes addiction!
Anyway, no matter what you're doing girls, find an outfit that you feel a million dollars in :)
