YOUR CHRISTMAS OUTFITS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 19 December 2017
Anyone will tell you that the best day of the year to hit the pub is Christmas Eve. Getting the drinks in ahead of the big day, while being surrounded by your good mates from home, is the only way to kick off the festivities right. To fully get into the holiday spirit, go for a cosy getup that’ll have you sorted for a long stint at your local.
For your base layer, borrow from the 70s and pick a striped old-school-style half-zip. Layer a patterned V-neck jumper over the top to both play around with patterns and stay warm. Down low, make like your dad and opt for a pair of traditional checked trews to contrast the vibrancy of your top half. To round it all off, don a pair of Converse trainers with simple white socks.
Aside from spending time with the fam, opening presents and unwittingly getting lured into watching EastEnders, Christmas Day is about stuffing your face with food. So, in order to be prepared for the mammoth eating session ahead, you’ve got to make sure you dress accordingly.
Go for a simple white T-shirt and layer up with a retro-inspired mohair cardigan – one that your grandma could’ve sworn she knitted for you last year. On your bottom half, give your gut some room and pop on a pair of relaxed adidas joggers. To finish off your feast-ready ’fit, opt for a pair of comfortable slip-on Vans and wear them with plain white socks. Happy munching!
