Believe it or not Christmas is just around the corner, which means it’s time to get planning your Christmas Day outfit. Almost, if not more, important than the turkey or the tree, it’s essential your Christmas Day outfit ticks certain boxes, whether you stay in or go out, whether you like to dress up or down: comfort is essential (so stretchy waistbands or floaty shapes are a must) as is a nod to the day’s festivities, whether that’s through a subtle star print, a Christmas tree-green hue or full-on sequins.
We might not 100 per cent know what Christmas will look like yet for 2021, but whatever happens, you can still bring some additional cheer to the day through your sartorial choices. Here are 25 Christmas Day outfit ideas to get you in the mood…
