Forget deciding whether you’ve been naughty or nice this year, the real dilemma is whether you can be bothered to go out or not. It’s tough choosing between heading to your local with your mates or having a lazy day on the sofa binge-watching Christmas films but, whatever you decide to do, we’ve got a couple of outfit options that should have you covered.
YOUR NIGHT OUT VS STAYING IN OUTFITS
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 13 December 2018
Now, spending quality time with your family and exchanging presents aside, the festive period is mainly your opportunity to go out as often as you want. Whether your Christmas work do is right around the corner or you’re planning to hit the pub with your nearest and dearest, it’s a good idea to have a fly getup in your arsenal. Kick off your look with a multi-print shirt but tone down the effect of your top half by going for a pair of simple black jeans. When it comes to your footwear, polished black loafers are always a shout and be sure to throw on a black flight bag to hold all your essentials.
Picture it. You’re reclined on the sofa, the Home Alone opening credits have just started and you’ve got a box of Quality Street all to yourself (your mum’s not going to be best pleased but you’ll worry about that later). All you need to complete such an idyllic scene is a slick-yet-comfortable outfit. Well, Christmas has come early, pal, because we’ve put one together for you. To start, opt for a pale-green tee from Weekday and layer up with a traditional-style check cardigan. On your bottom half, go for dark-wash denim jeans and have a pair of adidas creps in the same colours as your top half on standby – y’know, just in case you need to leg it to the shop to stock up on snacks.
