Dresses for the festive season

Dresses for the festive season

Dresses for the festive season. The festive season is upon us and it is time to start preparing what we are going to wear over the holiday period. Personally, I want to wear some bright colours. I feel that we need to cheer ourselves up during these dark winter months. In the photo above I am wearing a bright blue dress from hopefashionUK combined with my favourite colour pink. The dress is nice and loose so there is plenty of room if you choose to overindulge in Christmas pud.

The day we took these photographs it was cold and windy so I decided to style the dress with my favourite pink roll-neck sweater and a pair of wide black trousers. For a more dressy occasion I would swap the sweater for a statement necklace and a pair of low heel court shoes.

I’m a great believer that accessories really jazz up an outfit. I have kept the colour theme going with my bright pink coat, pink gloves and light pink pearl beret.

You can add more definition to the dress by cinching in the waist with a wide belt.

What will you be wearing over the festive season? Will you be dressing up or dressing down this year?

    Lovely post thank you Josephine! We always dress up for Christmas normally wearing whatever presents we were given that morning, but I do like to wear something christmassy and pretty.I have a Hobbs green shift dress on stand by with pleated sleeves that works wonders with bright gold jewelry.

    This is just such a great combination on you! I appreciate your ideas for making layers work in the colder weather. That belt bag is fantastic!
