Deck the halls with festive fashion

I love Christmas, not only is it the most wonderful time of the year but I love that we tend to get a little more creative with fashion. Maybe you’ll wear a pop of colour instead of your favourite neutrals, or try a new sparkly eyeshadow or accessorise with something dazzling like a jewel-encrusted necklace. Maybe, you’re all about jandals, sunnies and a wraparound dress.

However you choose ‘fashion’ during the festive season, I love to see it and have popped a few of my favourite festive pieces below to inspire some creativity. You can also check out Nina’s ideas for festive makeup and nail looks for more beauty inspiration.

Are you a bit of a DIY fashion fan? We’ve got just the thing for you.

Ruby’s Liam patterns mean that everyone from beginner sewers right through to the more advanced can choose and create something truly festive by hand. When it comes to choosing your look, any number of the gorgeous Liam patterns in a festive hue would look gorgeous on Christmas Day or New Year’s Eve – my personal pick is the Carol dress pattern in a rich, merlot red or pine green shade. Festive fashion to me means glamour mixed with versatility, and these patterns definitely do the trick.
