Christmas style tips: helping to get you in the festive spirit, by Angela Jones

7 Dec

Getting into the festive spirit can be as simple as slipping on some woolly boots and a pullover. However, if you really want to embrace all that is warm, fuzzy and festive about Christmas, there are plenty of other things you can try out.

Route through the wardrobe – you need a starting point!

First things first, you’re going to need to have a rummage through your wardrobe to see what delights of Christmas past you might have stowed away there.

If you’re extremely fussy about seasonal fashion – even though one would assume changes little at Christmas time – then you might find yourself chucking a mass of designer labels out from last year.

However, if you’re not so fussy about Christmas catwalk fashion, you can’t go wrong but embrace all those clichéd Christmas essentials: boots, mittens, woolly hats, scarves, jumpers and tights. If you find that you’re lacking in this department from last year’s haul, or you just fancy a change, then definitely get yourself down to the shops.

What to buy from the store

If you’re brave enough, then why not completely throw yourself into the spirit of the season at Christmas time? Think big woolly jumpers with grossly over-sided motifs on them of reindeer, snowflakes, Santa and the like. If you’re going to do it, you might as well do it big!

Don’t forget that this Christmas overload can apply to the ear muffs you choose to wear, gloves and snoods too. In many stores you can get items which have a great symmetry with one another, whether that be in an overarching theme (snowflakes, let’s say) or in colour.

Speaking of colours, you should attempt to fly the festive colours where possible. These are your greens, reds, golds, and silver. Variations on these colour themes should be able to give you a coordinated palette; stopping you resembling a Christmas cracker! Creams and chocolate browns are also popular at this time of the year – plus, they’re subtle enough to let you get away with wearing at least one avant-garde, kitsch Christmas showpiece to get everyone’s attention (without overdoing it).


When accessorising, think of all those Christmas treats you might be able to incorporate into your dress. Christmas candy canes, baubles, tinsel frills and bells all perfectly sum up the spirit of Christmas. They can manifest themselves as rings, necklaces, bracelets and clip on earrings – if you look in the right places.

You can even accessorise your own outfits by adding these delicate little touches. That little black dress you’ve been wearing all year can quite easily become something very on-point if you throw in a little tinsel frill around the hem, or neck, for example.


With your make-up, go the same way as you will with your choice of colours for your clothing. Turn to autumnal hues such as cappuccinos, mellow yellows, gold, greens and reds. If you need inspiration for some styles, then don’t be afraid to look up the odd example of a sassy elf or Mrs Santa Claus online.

With any luck, you’ll feel like you’re a part of the Christmas spirit right away!
