Isn't it wonderful to wake up early in the morning, run downstairs to find a whole bunch of presents under a beautifully decorated tree? It is one o my favourite things of Christmas, but there is something else I enjoy equally. Yes, spending time with my family is a given and hence wont receive much recognition in this post.
What I really enjoy as much as unwrapping gifts is getting dressed for Christmas. There, I said it out loud. I have heard mixed reactions whenever I have told people this. Some look at me like I’m from kuku-land while others totally gush how much they love getting ready for Christmas day too. Even if it’s just to spend time with my family at home, I think it's a festive occasion and hence some new, pretty clothes are mandatory!
Before I go on with ramblings any further, I must mention that the following post is a direct result of the past two hours, shamelessly spent browsing through ASOS, wistfully wishing that I was back in the UK, only so that I could order one (or all three) of the dresses. Sadly, as I’m in India at the moment, all I can do is browse through websites and wear whatever I packed for Christmas day.
While browsing I came across three different dresses that I thought were perfect for the Christmas day. They are very different styles and are suitable depending on how dressy or comfortable you want to be for the day.
Also, as it is after all for Christmas day, I thought it was only apt to stick to red or green. There is no hard and fast rule about the colours, its just the brand marketing slave in me propels me to gravitate towards red or green for Christmas.
The green dress is my favourite. If I were to pick one of these three dresses, I would definitely pick this one. Probably because I’m spending Christmas after two years with my family, I feel uber festive this year and would love to wear something dressy, even if the extent of my parade in the dress is only from my room to the living room.
The lovely black lace detailing in the front and the crinkled skirt both remind me of Christmas for some reason. The skirt shouts Christmas tree while the lace is festive. Ok, Maybe I’m stretching it a bit too much, but its so pretty!
This dress is definitely the dressiest of the lot. You can wear it at home like I would or is even perfect to go out in the evening. Its also available in blue, but as mentioned above, the blue is not my pick for the holiday season.
The red dress with hearts is the perfect for Christmas day too. It ticks all the boxes. Red: check; woolen, warm and cosy: check; cute: check.
I absolutely love the bow detailing at the back. Again, something that reminds me of gifts and hence Christmas. The heart design is very cute as well. All in all, along with the zip on the sleeves, the bow detailing on the back and the heart pattern, this is something I’d definitely wear for Christmas as well; if only I wasn't feeling that festive this year.
The red jumper dress is the comfy-iest of the three dresses. If you are someone who cant be bothered to get dressed for Christmas day and just want to wear something comfortable, this dress is perfect for you. The red and white make it festive enough though its a simple jumper. In my opinion it is fashionable take on being dressed in PJs all day on Christmas day.
If you are someone like me, hope this gives ideas for what to wear on Christmas day, if you are not, hope you enjoyed my bit of rambling!
