Given Christmas is right around the corner, here’s a guide for navigating the silly season with style…

We are in for one of our hottest summers on record so you may not want to sweat it out in a Bridget Jones’ Diary-inspired cheesy Christmas sweater! Pictured above are some alternatives to help you feel festive without having a meltdown!

Here are some other pointers to send you on your merry way…

  • Accessorise with some Christmas bling that isn’t too tacky. Tinsel embellished items are a big no-no but you could treat yourself to some tasteful pieces thanks to Lady Fox.
  • Add an extra element of festivity to your ensembles with a touch of red lipstick. MAC’s ‘Lady Danger’ is a cheery Christmas red in matte finish, which has incredible staying power to see you through any festive foray.
  • For the boys: A short-sleeve button-up in Christmas colours should keep you looking fresh at festive functions. Team shades of forest green, teal or burgundy-red with beige chinos or cuffed shorts for a smart-casual look. Make sure you check out the range at General Pants.
