Did someone say cocktails?
Invited to a more formal occasion with family, a sit-down dinner, or a proper Christmas eve party, one cannot go wrong with a cocktail dress. There are a few go-to styles and colours that you can’t miss. Black always looks sophisticated especially when adding some gold ear loops and a chain necklace for a Christmas-like spirit. For the best-fitted look on your unique body, read our Body shapes and styles article. Feeling more festive, go for a full-on sparkle dress, with wedges or heels and hair done up to bring focus to the face. Everyone deserves a bit of sparkle during this season.
A good old braai
Getting together this holiday around the campfire, sharing stories with some good South African cuisines cannot get better! Dress more casually with a maxi dress, sneakers, and your favourite jewellery. Or go for the classic jean and a silk blouse with wedges, adding to that Christmas spirit. You will look stylish and feel super comfortable.
Want to take things easy this Christmas with friends and family, go for a staycation. Do your own thing with the people closest to you, whether it is a hike, movie night, or star gazing. For your staycation outfit, we want to do the bare minimum, looking and feeling good. Grab some classic black tights, that goes with everything, an oversized t-shirt, and hoodie for later the night, with comfy tekkies. You can always add a bit of extra for
instance a chain necklace, winged liner, or braided hair. Be comfortable and be you.
Remember to take things easy this festive season on yourself, appreciating the small things in life. Stay stylish and stay safe.
