During the holidays, your closet is significant. Consider this: is there another time of year when you’ll be going from party to party, seeing everyone you know? Probably not! So to help you prepare for the busy party season and streamline your outfit choices, we’ve compiled the ultimate list of Christmas wardrobe essentials. From conversation-starting dresses to women’s bags that complement your outfit perfectly, these are the festive must-haves for your closet over the next few months.

December is officially within touching distance. If you’re having an existential crisis about the seemingly relentless passing of time, then you’re not alone. We seem to have only just finished a beachside holiday, and now our shopping search history includes boots, tights, and knitwear. And while a lack of vitamin D is a cause for concern, it’s worth focusing on the positives, such as the fact that cosy seasonal dressing is unquestionably superior to summer dressing.

Winter wardrobe requirements differ according to climate. Still, this post is geared toward those who live in colder climates. Also, when deciding how much to allocate to each wardrobe item, keep the cost per wear in mind to help make the most of your budget.


Jumpers are, of course, essential during the winter months, even if you live somewhere with mild winters! Cardigan jumpers, pullover jumpers, turtleneck jumpers, and tunic-length jumpers are all examples of this. Choose the ones that best suit your style and treat yourself. And donning a Christmas jumper every year has to be one of the best wacky Christmas traditions. While the annual tradition may make some cringe, people worldwide are still throwing Christmas jumper parties and dressing up in them for office holiday parties. So chances are you’ll require one at some point this year, sooner or later!


When purchasing jeans that will serve as the foundation of your outfit, only a few colourways are required, one of which is inky black. A pair of solid black jeans will see you through the good, the bad, and the downright ugly, while keeping you looking slick and put-together, making them ideal for even the most outré of occasions.


Fashion editors are buying Christmas cardigans instead of novelty jumpers this year. This versatile knit is defined by its button fastenings, enabling various styling options. It is both cutesy and chic, and an excellent piece for layering. Cardigans are also ideal for chilly days when you need extra warmth but don’t want to wear a heavy coat. Furthermore, they can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion. Wear yours over a dress for a more formal look, or with jeans and a tee for something a little more casual.


Beginning November 1st, it seems like every shop window is suddenly adorned with sequins, rich jewel tones, feathers, and sparkles. The sumptuous, shimmery displays of Christmas glitz have become a massive annual trend, and who can resist them? Bias-cut satin or silk will elevate any look, whether a grungy slip dress or a floor-sweeping gown. Go for a jewel-box ruby or a soft pastel to defy the festive dress code. The luxury of these fabrics does a lot of the hard work in bringing an outfit to life, so just add some jewellery and you’re ready to go.

Leather jacket

 A leather jacket is an investment that will only improve with age. It’s an excellent addition to any wardrobe, imbued with just the right amount of attitude. The all-weather, all-outfits, all-occasions piece is timeless, and can be worn with almost anything. Combine one with blue jeans and a white T-shirt for a laid-back look. Alternatively, throw one on over the top of your sparkly party dress. Or if you find yourself having to pop to the local shops for some last-minute goodies, why not wear your LJ over a hoodie with a pair of wide-leg trousers?

Sparkle and shine

Whether your family wears Rudolph pyjamas all day, matching novelty knits, or dresses to the nines for that special Christmas lunch, nothing says holiday spirit like a bit of sparkle – keep it sophisticated to avoid clashing with the tree!
