What to wear to every festive scenario

‘Tis the season to be merry – and let’s be honest, the more on-point your festive look, the merrier you’ll feel. Considering we dedicate so many hours to shopping for others over the festive period, it’s only fair that we treat ourselves to a few pieces, too. From the office party to the school reunion – tackle whatever festive scenario is thrown your way. Here’s every dress, clutch, suit and boot you need in your armoury. Did someone say open bar?

THE SCHOOL REUNION
If you’ve managed to escape an official reunion, we commend you – but let’s get real for a second. Being back in your hometown for the holidays equals at least one guaranteed run-in with an ex, your school nemesis or your annoyingly attractive former neighbour. Counteract any awkwardness with a killer party look…

THE CHRISTMAS EVE ESCAPE
It’s the night before Christmas, and while you’ve got plenty of last-minute wrapping and potato peeling to do, you naturally find yourself in denial at the local pub. The good news is you’re not alone. Enter your entire friendship group, as well as random members of their extended family who were also desperate to get out of the house. Here are your go-to pieces for low-key elegance…

THE OFFICE PARTY
Office party dressing is a fine art – and call us crazy, but we kind of love the challenge. You need something statement enough to serve as an icebreaker for that initial, and quite frankly, painful first hour – and something elegant enough to dance freely in once the champagne starts flowing. The search is over…

THE FAMILY GATHERING
If it’s your own family, you can probably get away with slippers, jeans and your trusty Christmas jumper. If it’s your other half’s side, we’re sorry but your outfit is going to require significantly more effort. Think luxe textures, rich hues, simple silhouettes and beautiful details. Voilà…
