There’s so much to think about at this time of year, isn’t there? Should you invite Uncle Jim back for Christmas lunch after last year’s incident with the sherry? Can you get away with re-gifting those dodgy looking chocolates to one of the neighbours? The list goes on and on.
Knowing that you’re likely to be a bit preoccupied with these and many other thoughts, we thought we’d give you a helping hand with getting yourself ready for the chilliest season. From the jumpers you need to the home décor that will cheer you up when you come in from the sheets of rain, it’s all here.
When you absolutely have to venture outdoors:
Stepping outside your own front door can feel like a real effort when the temperature is dropping and there’s lots of Christmas cheer on the telly. Investing in the right pieces will help you to feel so much cosier however, and we have some truly gorgeous options on offer. You can’t go wrong with the classic leggings, long T-shirt, jumper and boots combination – it’s both stylish and practical.
This casual option above features a festive-toned Dennis Basso cardigan with a luxurious faux-fur collar, some Cuddl Duds leggings, and a pair of flat Emu boots. Throw on this super easy to wear outfit for instant cold-weather proofing!
If you want to go a little dressier, you can keep the basic principles of this look but change up slouchy for something a bit more stylish. It’s all about the contrasting textures with this look, a lace trim jumper from Marble, these H by Halston faux suede leggings, and chunky heeled boots from Clarks.
Cosy night in:
Turn off your phone, put the ‘to-do’ list out of your mind – it’s time for some pampering. Get in the mood by settling into some gorgeous pyjamas – we love these festive Jane & Bleeker fair isle print PJs. Stay warm and toasty with a wonderfully soft Anybody dressing gown and these Muk Luks deer print slippers.
Now that you’re ready to relax, why not indulge in some pampering. After you’re removed your make-up, treat your skin to a fabulous mask. We love this selection from Nugg, there’s an option in here to suit everyone and the single use pots are so convenient. Relax with this on for a few minutes, then rinse it off and follow with a hydrating moisturiser such as Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream. While that’s sinking in, complete the pampering experience by running a bath and adding a generous dose of festive-themed bubble bath from Philosophy. Mmm, smells like Christmas!
After lingering in the bath for as long as you’d like, it’s time to hop into bed with a good book. This holly print Cozee Home bedding set is just so inviting. Create a gorgeously cosy atmosphere with this Home Reflections fur cushion and wintry scents from Yankee Candle; this 52-piece set will keep you supplied with different scents.
