Outfit ideas for this Christmas holiday season 2019

And how you can incorporate the summer trends with your Christmas spirit.

During the festive season, there is always somewhere to go and something to dress up for.

Whether you're attending a 15-course family lunch or a Christmas party, or simply staying in to watch Christmas movies with your loved ones, this is one time of the year it's a given you're going to dress up.

Australians celebrating Christmas in summer can mean swimming, enjoying the sun and possibly a seafood lunch. And while Christmas themes are usually associated with snow and feeling warm and cozy, we've got some options that will keep you cool while showing off your Christmas spirit.

1. Cool down with a white linen dress

Celebrating Christmas on a scorching summer's day? Fear not, there is still a way to keep cool and festive at the same time.

These white linen summer dresses are on trend and with the right accessories, they work perfectly for a Christmas-inspired outfit. Pair with red heels and red lipstick and you are good to go.

The range of white linen dresses from Princess Polly and Hello Molly are our personal favourites.


2. Pop your outfit with red shoes

Simple red shoes embody the Christmas spirit and have been on trend this summer for their ability to spice up your outfit.

Add red shoes to any look, even if it's simple denim or neutral colours. It is guaranteed to make your outfit a little more festive.

You can feed your red shoe desires with retailers like Tony Bianco , THE ICONIC and Billini.


3. Accessorise better than a Christmas tree with gold jewellery

The easiest trend to follow this Christmas? Gold accessories. Layering gold necklaces and wearing statement earrings are huge trends this season. Plus, it's the easiest way to add another element to an outfit with very little effort.

Gold jewellery makes an outfit look more stylish and can maybe steal your Christmas tree's thunder. The best places to shop for these are THE ICONIC and ASOS.


4. Wrap yourself in luxe silk fabrics

Holiday season is all about luxury fabrics that look fabulous. Silky fabrics are on trend this season, coming in most colours imaginable.

If you want to go all out, silky red can be your outfit of choice. For something a little more subtle, go for white, black or champagne where you will still be on trend and show off your Christmas spirit with the right accessories. These fabrics are perfect for a formal evening event or your next holiday party.

Check out Princess Polly, Hello Molly or Dissh for a wide range of silk fabric items.


5. Not a fan of red? Try forest green instead

Forest green is one of the hottest shades this season and works perfectly for Christmas.

Especially if you don't feel like red is your colour, forest green in silky fabrics is a great outfit idea to look festive this holiday season. To inject the colour into your wardrobe, shop at Dissh and Beginning Boutique.


6. Snuggle up in a festive jumper

If you really want to embody the Christmas spirit and look like you've just stepped out of the latest Christmas movie, you need a festive jumper in your life. Whether you live in a colder climate or have a guilty pleasure for them, they are literally the definition of Christmas fashion.

Throw one on with your favourite leggings or denim jeans and you will look like you have been approved by Santa Claus himself.

You can shop an adorable and affordable range of Christmas jumpers from Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing and Missguided.


7. Spend Christmas morning in festive pyjamas

Christmas Day usually means spending the morning in your pyjamas, eating breakfast and opening presents.

Festive pyjamas are the perfect outfit of choice, no matter the weather. There are summer and winter options to choose from for wherever you live. Think Christmas-themed shorts, singlets, slippers or robes!

We're personally obsessed with the Xmas pyjama ranges from Peter Alexander and PrettyLittleThing.
