Christmas Day is quickly approaching and while many of us spend it in our homes or the homes of our relatives we still want to look and feel our best. And yes that really does mean that many of us want to look model ready lounging in Nan’s kitchen snacking on fruit mince pies. So what to wear when you want to look your best self and yet still have the ability to make the most of Christmas lunch? Don’t worry, I have you covered with 5 very stylish yet comfortable options for you below.


Keep cool (and look it) in a crisp white a-line dress – the perfect silhouette to hide a large lunch while still looking chic. The puff sleeve and cut out back are the perfect statement accents to an all white dress, especially when paired with classic summer accessories; tan strappy heels and a raffia bag.

Dreamscape dress from The Iconic $329.95 AUD | Felicity hoops from Hello Parry | Hendrix heel from Betts Shoes $49.99 AUD (on sale) | Niki raffia bag from Olga Berg $119.95 AUD


No colour is more festive than red but rather than looking kitschy, keep red stylish and modern this Christmas in a sweet heart neckline and ruffle straps with a red floral print. White heeled sandals and classic hoops finish off the look.

Where to get it:
Hailey dress from Forever New $149.99 AUD | McClure earrings from Petal & Pup $24.95 AUD | Zaney heels from Novo $79.95 AUD


If Christmas is a more casual affair with prawns on the BBQ and a pool in the background then take inspiration from one of summer’s biggest trends with a tropical shirt. White boyfriend denim shorts & statement shades keep the look fresh and less like an 80’s flashback.

Where to get it:
Kimono pullover from Empire Rose $285.00 AUD | Parker denim shorts from Dissh $ 59.99 AUD | Dae sunglasses from Poppy Lissiman $145.00 AUD | Clover slides from Hobbs $199.99 AUD


Is there anything more comfortable for a hot Australian summer than linen? The most covetable fabric this season (to say designers are obsessed with linen right now is an understatement ) is best worn head to toe. Balance a voluminous wrap style top with white wide leg pants for the ultimate in comfort meets style. Complete the look with an angular cat eye shade and woven flats.

Where to get it:
Aere wrap top from The Iconic $79.00 AUD | Nora wide leg pant from Dissh $99.99 AUD | Vinyl cat eye sunglasses from The Iconic $65.00 AUD | Artica slide from Wittner Shoes $175.00 AUD


Mini lengths don’t need to compromise on style, instead of choosing a fitted style opt for a shift style dress, perfect for lounging around all day while still showing off long legs. Choose this summer’s hottest colour lilac and pair with tonal accessories for head to toe effortless polish.

Where to get it:
Aster mini dress from Lee Matthews $529.00 AUD | Jamila kitten heel from Wittner Shoes $160.00 AUD | Vinyl sunglasses from The Iconic $65.00 AUD | Juvelle pearl hoop earrings from Tania Claire Australia $89.00 AUD (on sale)

Have a wonderful and stylish Christmas!
