Amanda Holden’s green Zara co-ord is all we want for Christmas

Ah, the comfy/chic Christmas dilemma. It’s one we’re facing more than ever this year – after months spent in our loungewear, the thought of going all out glam on 25th December is tempting, but we’ll also miss the cosy lining and elasticated waistband of our trusty joggers. But now Amanda Holden has just drawn our attention to the perfect middle ground – a stylish co-ord from Zara that’s just as laid-back as it is luxurious.

The Heart Radio host debuted the two-piece set on her Instagram account, dressed up for the day with a pair of pointed heels which can be just spotted peeking out from under her trouser hem.

The lavish look won her instant compliments from hundreds of fans, with one posting: ‘Wrap some light[s] and tinsel around you and you’re a Christmas tree! Love the green and it looks warm too.’ ‘Omg I love velvet. Gorgeous outfit,’ agreed another, while a third wrote: ‘Looking fabulous in green??’.

Amanda Holden Green Zara Co-ord

Festive colour aside, Amanda’s outfit really ticks all of our boxes for a great Christmas Day outfit – it looks great styled up with shoes and accessories, but still has a soft, stretchy fabric that allows us to enjoy the post-lunch stroll and indulge in as many Quality Street as we wish without feeling restrictive.

Plus, when you get bored of wearing the two pieces together, they’re perfect for mixing and matching with the rest of your wardrobe throughout the colder months. In short, it’s the sartorial gift that keeps on giving.

The co-ord is currently still in stock in several sizes on the Zara website, but it’s a recently dropped line that’s already selling fast.

With Amanda’s impact on our fashion choices in the past well documented, we suspect that it won’t be waiting on the rails for much longer, so snap yours up now if you’re keen to invest!
