All the gifts have been made and/or bought, wrapped lovingly, and arranged beneath the tree. Your plans for your Christmas day party or dinner are in place. Your holiday season is coming together nicely. But what will you be wearing on Christmas day? Now is the time to plan your Christmas party outfit. We have taken elements from all of our favorite Christmas nostalgia, updated them for the modern Minx, and created a very simple yet effective look for Christmas day.
Christmas Outfit Part 1: The Tapestry Skirt
This skirt is patterned in a beautiful design reminiscent of vintage wall paper or tapestry. The high waist keeps the silhouette feminine and classic, while the pleats add substance and movement. A skirt of this length and line often dictates the rest of the outfit, but there is plenty of room to make this look your own.
Christmas Outfit Part 2: The Blue Suede Shoes
The lines of a high waisted, below the knee skirt naturally sweep the eye from head to foot. So, it is highly advisable to wear an amazing pair of shoes like these blue suede pumps from Seychelles. The neutral palate of the skirt really open the doors for a pop of color from your footwear. If you choose these blue suede shoes, make sure that you have Elvis’s Christmas album on your turntable!
Christmas Outfit Part 3: The Blouse and Jacket
Between the tapestry skirt and the blue suede shoes, this Christmas day outfit is already solid. A blouse is a beautifully feminine way to round out the look. If you need to pull something a little more edgy or understated into your outfit a simple jersey top would be a great choice. Either option goes well with our featured jacket. We chose the Brooklyn Jacket from Paige Denim. This painted denim jacket is a brilliant vegan alternative to a leather biker jacket.
The Christmas Party Outfit vs. The New Years Eve Party Outfit
As you begin to pull together what to wear on Christmas day, don’t forget that New Years Eve is just around the corner! While the main elements of these two outfits will most likely be different, have fun brainstorming outfits that could both utilize a good pair of blue suede shoes and a painted denim jacket!
