Christmas is tomorrow and I can assure you that people are busy today with the last minute shopping. In the fashion scene, the last season and the new season has met and we have both old and new clothes as well as jewellery to choose from, and get the best out of all and have something to wear for this occasion.
Well, fashion is fashion-but not all fashionable clothes are perfect for this occasion especially if one is intending to attend church service. We have some of the new clothes on the block that the new season has to offer for us to wear on Christmas Day.
Attending church service
Ladies can never be happier this season. Remember the little flowered and coloured dresses that were so much loved by Jacqueline Kennedy? They are back this season and they are hotter than never before – Mrs Obama was spotted dressed in one. These dresses are age appropriate and also decent and can be worn anywhere including church. As for the men, the weather could not be better than it already is. Casual linen shirts, embroidered cotton shirts and even embroidered kitenge shirts can be paired with good cotton trousers, and be decent enough to attend any function.
Also in the fashion world, people are mostly judged by the shoes they wear. Be very careful when choosing your shoes for this special day. Anything can do except for open sandals and sports shoes when attending church service or a function. One can be casual in their dressing but maintain the smartness.
Dressing for the big lunch
Some people are not fussy about changing clothes more than once a day, but others are. Just in case you have not tried it, this is one of those days that you have the opportunity to dress more than thrice in a day and show your fashion sense. Dressing for lunch is usually very casual but smart. A loose blouse and linen pants or a loose dress like a flowered maxi can do during lunch time because it allows one the freedom they need when enjoying their meals on this special day. Flat and open shoes can do during this time when lunching at home to give a person reason to rest their feet as they savour the big Christmas lunch.
In most homes, the meal that gives the family members time to discuss their issues is during dinner time, because most homes receive visitors on Christmas Day during lunch hour. Christmas dinner is a private time for most families. Some families decide to go for an outing, while others remain at home. Now, depending with where the dinner will be held, one can decide to dress up or dress down. While a dinner outing will only be appropriate if a person dresses up for the occasion, a quiet dinner at home sometimes calls for clothes that let a person feel free.
Christmas comes only once a year, enjoy yourself by dressing up great. Merry Christmas!
