What Colours Work Best on Christmas Day?

Bonne A-line Swing Dress in Green

When we think of Christmas, we often associate it with bright, festive colours such as red, green and gold. When it comes to our festive outfits, there are no set rules as to which colours we can and cannot wear.

Red and green are both classic colours at Christmas time, and are guaranteed to blend in with the festive surroundings, but can still make a statement at formal occasions and even on Christmas day. Our red Edie silk full skirt shirt dress is an opulent choice for Christmas, with its bright finish and soft fabric making it a great option when celebrating the festivities. If you would prefer a green dress this Christmas and New Year, our Bonne A-line swing dress has a detachable belt for complete comfort, and can be matched with our black Darcey saddle bag.

Purple also creates an opulent, regal Christmas palette alongside Darker tones such as chocolates. These work well as they tie in with the winter months and can create a classic silhouette. Our Celia silk full skirt shirt dress in purple creates a rich and stylish look that can be worn throughout the festive season to daytime events. All of our designer silk Celia dresses are the perfect option for sophistication and versatility, but our purple option provides a touch of extra colour to your day.

Although adding bright colours to your Christmas outfits is a great choice, black is still a classic, timeless option that will never go out of style. Black matches with any setting, and can provide a powerful, elegant look for Christmas and New Year’s Day, and into 2024. Our luxurious Eve silk-blend velvet shirt dress is a great option for dazzling your guests and making a true statement this winter, with warm materials to help you feel comfortable too.
