Santy Claus Is Comin
Christmas is a day where, sartorially speaking, you don’t have to try too hard. Grammie doesn’t want to see you in a sheer top and leather drop-crotch trousers anyway. Your clothes should be ready for cookie-eating, whiskey-drinking, and present-opening, aka loose and/or stretchy. We don’t get super fancy in my house for the occasion, and stay specifically dressed down for Christmas morning in particular - mascara, hairbrushes and clothes that are not pajamas are strictly banned - but for Christmas evening, we like to get a little cleaned up. A simple, luxe sweater, pants with tactile interest, and CUTE SOCKS (no shoes allowed) are de rigeur for me. Here’s some ideas to get ya started -
Socks - if you’re not wearing shoes, make your feet look cool in other ways. Also your other socks are probably old and gross. So get new ones, like stripes with a cap toe, something Fairisle-y, or polka dots!
Sweater - My first choice would be something cashmere of course, because I can feel like a rich lady. This Vince sweater will have you looking like a very cute candy cane, and I have something similar to this Velvet one that I basically live in. This tan/gray combo or metallic pullover are a little less expensive, but just as good for lounging around and eating all day.
Pants - Something velvety, like this Free People pair.
Add in hot toddies, gift bows and rosy cheeks wherever possible.
