It’s no secret that our priorities for festive dressing (and dressing in general) have shifted this year – searches for loungewear have soared, while buys like party dresses are understandably less in demand. But if you’re struggling to figure out quite what to wear on 25th December this year in light of this shift, Boden has come up with a Christmas Day outfit that’s a perfect happy medium of comfy, yet still utterly chic: meet the green velvet lounge suit of dreams.
The eye-catching two-piece suit first popped up on the Boden Instagram account back in November, where it was shown to be a versatile investment that can be mixed and matched with other elements of your wardrobe, as well as worn as a statement outfit in its own right.
Customers following Boden’s account were instantly won over by the quirky set, with hundreds of comments complimenting its seasonally-appropriate colour and gorgeous fabric: ‘Really nice! An absolute wardrobe essential. Gorgeous colour too! ?’ wrote one commenter, followed by another who said: ‘This suit is dynamite!! ❤️?? Soo good!!!’
It’s no surprise that the look has proved so popular – from cooking the turkey to snuggling up on the sofa in front of a movie to the ultimate family kitchen disco, there’s nothing Boden’s velvet suit won’t see you through in style.
Seeing as it’s so soft and cosy it’s basically a super-glam pair of Christmas pyjamas, you won’t want to take it off even when the celebrations are over – and believe it or not, we haven’t even got to the best bit yet, because it’s also on sale. The blazer is down to £102 from its original RRP of £170, while the trousers are now £72 instead of £120.
However, it’s not the only glitzy Christmas suit causing a stir on social media right now. Karen Millen’s tailored metallic jacquard suit is also taking over grids across the country – so if you’re in the market for a slightly more structured set, we’d highly recommend perusing that too.
