How To Best Dress For The Festive Season

Hello summer, hello end of year festivities! And with end of year festivities comes multiple outfits, for many different occasions. If you’re in need of a little outfit inspiration, then look no further. We’ve put together eight key looks from Calexico, Witchery, Samantha Ogilvie and Lee Mathews, that will take you through to the new year in style.


Look 1.

First up, let’s consider a long lunch with the ladies. A denim skirt, equipment blouse, strappy sandals and wide-brim hat is an effortless option, which looks cool and is cool. Yes, the days are only getting hotter, so think wisely – protect your face with a hat, wear silk (it’s super breathable) and get those legs out!

Look 2.

Next up, you’ve got your partners Christmas party? Easy! A flared black pant, sparkly blazer and a choker is smart, on trend and is totally appropriate for any venue. Worried about over heating in a jacket? Don’t sweat it, Calexico have an abundance of easy-to-wear silk camisoles’s that will do the trick too.




Look 3.

Ok, so you’ve got another white party? We’ve got the perfect dress for you! Opt for this off the shoulder dress from Witchery, with voluminous sleeves, it’s super flattering and the strapless neckline will accentuate your décolletage… Oh la la!

Look 4.

After something a little more fun? Perhaps, you’re heading to an outing where you’re taking your children too, so need an easy and practical option that looks great? Then consider this cherry-red playsuit, which is easy to move in, light-weight and festive. Dress it up with a wedged espadrille or keep it casual with a slide or pair of sandals.

Did someone say end of year ball? This emerald green, silk-satin dress by Tibi is sleek, festive and super glamorous! Your friends and colleagues will be green-with-envy over this little number.

Look 6.

Now let’s consider the big day, Christmas day of course! Whether you’re staying at home, heading off to a family or friends house or perhaps dining out, this seebychloé top and skirt combination is perfect. Plus, you will get a whole lot of wear out of this outfit post holiday season – team the top back with your favourite pair of jeans and slip on band-tee and a pair of sneakers with the skirt to change the look entirely!


Lee Mathews

Look 7.

As seen on Nadia Fairfax, this silk georgette, layered dress is oh so pretty! Perfect for the transition from day to night, we may have just found the perfect New Years Eve dress (race you there!). Remember NYE is ALWAYS a long celebration, so teaming a girly dress back with a pair of comfortable boots, is highly recommended.

Look 8.

It’s official, no matter the occasion, this slinky-spot dress will be your go to ‘day’ outfit during the holiday season. The weather is going to be super steamy so less is more, right? Whether you’re heading to King Arthur Cafe for breakfast, Harveys Bar + Bistro for a lunch or just popping into Quench for a juice, this is one dress that you will be hoping to run into people wearing.
