I love Christmas. I really do.
However, I feel it is seldom acknowledged how much of a stressful holiday it can be; buying the right presents on a budget, navigating a meal that is nothing short of a family reunion and having to answer questions about your degree (you’re pretty sure you’re failing), your career (what career?), your relationship (you’re single), all the while trying to squeeze in another glass of mulled wine and a fourth mince pie without breaking the zipper on your dress.
So, in an attempt to make your Christmas nothing but festive we’ve sourced some fool-proof, appropriately seasonal outfits.
Christmas Office Party
Whether you’re dreading it or secretly hoping this is a great chance for you to flirt inappropriately with a co-worker and regret it the next day, pair this &OtherStories dress with tights and a heeled boot for a look that is a happy medium.
(&OtherStories Metallic Wool Dress £45)
Nothing like a metallic silver skirt to bring Christmas in with a bang. Wear it with a knit jumper and strappy heels à la Topshop or a white t-shirt and leather jacket … à la Me.

It happens once a year so pictures will be taken and obviously it’s mandatory to upload one to Facebook/Instagram with a caption that looks something like this ‘#christmas #christmasday #christmaslunch #roast #family #love’ etc. The options are endless so you might as well go for it.

You’re suffering with a hangover and nursing a ‘food baby’, although that won’t stop you from tucking in to some leftovers let’s be honest… but you definitely won’t be wearing a dress whilst doing it! Put on some comfy pyjamas and relax.
