5 Festive Outfit Ideas: What To Wear During Christmas & The Holidays

28 November, 2023

Here are five party outfit ideas, including accessories, for any Christmas celebration or other holiday event this festive season.

It’s the season to sparkle and shine! The holidays are full of celebration and this year we’re going all-out, no holds barred. From office Christmas parties and huge end-of-year countdown events to wholesome family gatherings and more intimate, small get-togethers — we’ll take every excuse to look good and feel our best. Winter is this stylist’s favourite time in Hong Kong, the city is beautifully decorated and the weather is cool enough to layer without fear of sweat. So, it’s time to have some fun with your wardrobe. Whether you’re looking to stay warm and cosy, indulge in some glamour, shop local or stay sustainable, here are five festive outfit ideas to inspire you during the holidays.

What To Wear To A Fun Christmas Work Lunch

Look cute and put-together while staying cosy in an oversized Christmas sweater. The holidays are a great time to have a little fun, so why not let your clothing do the talking? Pair a loose-fit knit jumper with a faux leather mini skirt (we love this one from STAUD) and boots (contrasting textures for the win!) for a fun and sexy look (without leaning too far into an “ugly” sweater).

Stylist Tip: For a more trendy, almost baggy fit, shop in the men’s department. Polish it all off with a 2010s Ariana Grande-esque high and tight ponytail or a slicked-back low bun, regular ponytail. Keeping it casual? Swap your skirt for jeans and the thigh-high boots for low-top white sneakers.

What To Wear To For A Christmas Staycation Or At-Home Celebration

Everyone celebrates the holidays differently — why not go on an indulgent Christmas staycation with your loved ones or friends? This is a great festive gift for others and gives you a lovely opportunity to pamper yourself over the holiday season.

Stylist Tip: If your family loves to open Christmas gifts first thing in the morning, plan ahead by thinking carefully about what you wear to bed. This way you can sleep in, stay relaxed and look good in photos that morning, even before coffee. Don’t forget to pick up your favourite skin care products for plump, flawless-looking skin.

Stylist Tip: Opt for light layers to stay warm this season. If you go too heavy with knits and woollens, you could end up too hot for the mid-Hong Kong winter.
