The big day is just around the corner, but when it comes to your festive outfit, don’t spoil Christmas by looking weird.
When it comes to this time of year there are a few things that can make you look dated and tired, think tinsel, colored lights and 3ft gonks.
But your Christmas outfit doesn’t have to be tacky.
At the most wonderful time of the year you need to feel your most wonderful – and look your best too.
Here fashion editor Clemmie Fieldsend ranks the looks that will make you the bad list this year.
Novelty Christmas jumpers have had their day.
Sure, they were fun and new a few years ago, but showing off your sweater or sweater with lights on is old hat—or worse, one you made yourself.
Try a stylish blouse, like Kate Middleton recently wore when decorating her Christmas tree.
Slipping into a sexy Santa outfit or a bad elf costume is not for a family Christmas day.
You don’t want your Nan spitting her sprouts all over your weird costume.
But if you still want to feel festive and glam, try a figure-hugging frock or skirt in Christmas colors like red or dark green.
Traditional tartans come out in force at Christmas, whether on pyjamas, wrapping paper or a shortbread tin.
But it should not be worn in a mini skirt and crop top.
Tarty Tartan makes you look dirty and darling, best to keep it for the bedroom. And that means in your flannel nightwear.
The copy-and-paste look of a faux fur jacket with knee-high boots and a waist belt (perhaps a floppy hat held inside) is more common than turkey on the table.
Those who pose for a Christmas Day photo in the look with a Live Laugh Love sign behind them are weird.
Ditch the faux fur and you have a sophisticated and classy outfit.
Matching pajamas are a huge Christmas hit and definitely look good and bring the family together.
However, when it comes to the day itself, don’t fit in with the whole family or just you and mini-me.
Instead, choose tonal matching like Kate Middleton and Charlotte. Still a nod, the look, but less boring.
