Festive fashion means different things to different people. For some, the glitz and glam is for the lead up to December 25, and on the big day all they want to wear is pyjamas, yet for others, it's the day to dress to impress and party the night away. Or perhaps you'd rather go somewhere in between, looking smart for Mass and dinner before decamping to the couch in a onesie. Whatever camp you're in, we've got the picks to keep you looking stylish and comfortable from morning to midnight and beyond.

Luxe lounging

Drained from all that shopping and celebrating, and staying put for the duration of Christmas Day? Choose soft, snuggly fabrics that still look smart and festive. Think tartan and Christmas jumpers, or if you're truly looking to treat yourself, cashmere is king.

Daytime visting

If you're driving home for Christmas, you're going to want to dress to impress while still feeling relaxed. Sequinned leggings are popping up all over the high street - team them with a soft sweater. Or if skirts are your thing, pleated midis are on-trend this season.

Primed to party

Now's the time to pull out all the stops, but you don't want to freeze either so choose a glitzy mini with long sleeves. If you're in to a more classic style, go for a little black dress with a twist, and amp up your look with accessories and textured fabrics.
