So, if you’re unashamedly looking for the perfect casual Christmas outfit, you’ve come to the right place, cos we’ll do our very best to give you the best casual Christmas outfit inspo right here! Check out our collection of on-trend casual Christmas outfits and we might just convince even the staunchest lovers of sparkle of the magic of a casual Christmas outfit.
What is Christmas casual dress code?
A casual Christmas outfit can mean many things, but most likely it’s a lowkey affair where comfort and cosiness take centre stage. Does this mean you have to forgo the sparkles altogether? Not necessarily, but the key is to keep the sequins and sparkles on the downlow. Casual Christmas parties are often all about the company and cosy chats over wine & nibbles that extend deep into the night. There’s no dance floor in sight, instead candles flicker away as you sit on the couch with special people talking about everything from the latest cool girl party outfit trends to your respective love lives, your zodiac signs to your favourite ever Christmas memories & gifts, and everything & nothing in between. A fun and informal potluck dinner might also be part of the equation, or indeed a playful (if slightly messy) bring your own cocktail activity. Whatever the evening ends up looking like, a casual Christmas party is all about the people not about the outfit. So when it comes to dressing for a party with a Christmas casual dress code an outfit that straddles the line between comfort and style is the answer. We’re talking sparkly yet comfy & warm sweaters, flared pants, women’s suits, and knitwear galore. Keep scrolling to find out more!

What can I wear to a casual Christmas party?
Think a dress is too dressy (ahem) for a casual Christmas outfit, think again! A wrap dress is both comfy and on-trend, and when paired with warm tights, a cosy chunky cardigan, simple boots and minimalist jewellery, your dress will be just the right side of casual for a Christmas casual dress code. Keep the beauty look fresh and dewy and you’ll look on-trend without trying too hard. This truly is casual Christmas dressing at its easiest! A skirt and turtleneck sweater is another all-time favourite casual Christmas outfit idea. Skirts are flirty and fun but not too serious, and when paired with a (turtleneck) sweater they make the perfect casual Christmas party look.

What colours to wear to a Christmas party?
The magic of a casual Christmas party outfit is that there are very few rules, wear what you like and rock it! However, if you’re hoping to add a festive edge to your casual Christmas outfit there’s a few key colour trends that will really bring the holiday spirit. Black is a forever classic for a reason, flattering, easy to style and perfectly versatile, black (with or without sparkle) is a great colour to wear to a Christmas party. Dark green and deep red are two more festive favourites, but if you like to think outside the box in the colour stakes we’d recommend going for deep and romantic colours such as plum, navy and pink. For those of us who like to follow the trends and stand out from the crowd, silver is this year’s main festive colour powerhouse & the epitome of cool. Though gold is another golden option for your casual Christmas outfit!
