If the family tradition is all about the Christmas dinner on December 24th, you can give yourself a sparkling look, but with a very specific limit not to be crossed: you are not going to dance, but waiting for the birth of the Baby Jesus, obviously followed by the exchange gifts after midnight. Banned the tracksuit or that comfy Sunday afternoon looks: be elegant with panache.
2. CHRISTMAS OUTFIT WITHOUT BLACK
If in your home the heart of the Christmas holidays is lunch on December 25th, for the Christmas look focus on colors and leave black aside, after all, it’s only 12 hours. And in order not to compromise the digestion of uncles and aunts, grandparents and grandmothers, do not overdo it with necklines and slits but entertain them visually with embroidery, patterns, and play of volumes.
Christmas dinners and lunches are worse than a showdown of the most adventurous reality shows. All those bubbles, the deadly mixes of wines, and the diabolical alternation of land and seafood could cause redness in the décolleté area. Don’t alarm your parents: dress for the holidays and wear a flashy necklace or, in the certainty of the onset of the unfortunate event, wear a light crewneck top or a blouse with a heart-shaped neck like that of a cat.
4. AT CHRISTMAS FORGET YOUR POINT
Forget Christmas outfits with a too-tight waistline: it is useless, as Christmas we eat, a lot and of taste. Better to opt for a straight pouch dress, in stretch fabric or a low-waisted skirt, and allow digestion to run normally. The classic advice on how to dress if you have an apple-shaped body!
Dare with heels, you’ll be sitting most of the time! Stop training!
6. ADD A LONG COAT TO YOUR HOLIDAY LOOK
Wear a long coat: it will be very useful on pilgrimages from home to relatives’ homes: it covers the kidneys and wraps the stomach in one of those delicate post-atomic moments at the record-breaking meal of the year.
7. DO YOU WANT TO WEAR CHIC?
If you have a relationship of absolute confidence and understanding with the rest of the family you could also show off your sparkling pajama suit. And as soon as sleepiness sets in, voila, you’re ready for the sofa!
8. THE SOCKS WITH THE HOLE
Watch out for tights, it’s a moment to let yourself be tempted by taking off pumps and décolleté from under the table in the throes of relaxation chatter. What if there is a hole?
