What to Wear this Christmas

In New Zealand, Christmas lands right at the beginning of summer. We all know that in warm weather no one likes to wear too much because you can get stuffy, but at the same time, no one wants to be the person wearing too little at your family lunch with uncle Gary looking at you a little too weirdly… So we have some gorgeous summery yet festive outfits you can rock this Christmas.

Milkmaid or Tea Dresses

These dresses are the sweetest yet dressy items that are perfect for summertime celebrations. These styles can take you from a Christmas brunch with sandals to dinner with a pair of heels or wedges.

Everyone loves a good bit of linen. Whether you go with a dress, pants, or matching set, you can never go wrong with this breathable and light fabric. If you are celebrating Christmas by the beach we think linen will suit your event this year.

Silk slips 

Everyone and their mother knows that these are all back in style. Whether you go for a dress, a midi skirt, or any other variation, silk slips are an effortless way to look put together but also make a statement while looking cute AF.

Rompers or Jumpsuits

Are you having a little more of a casual day? Maybe you will be moving around a lot. We suggest going with a romper or jumpsuit! These can be dressed up or down depending on how you wish to style them. But these items of clothing don’t require too much thought, and are one of the easiest things to wear!
