Christmas celebrations may be lowkey this year but that doesn’t mean our wardrobes have to be. Jeans have their time and place but at Christmas? Only a dress will do! From Friendsmas to the dreaded work xmas zooms, sparkle you way to the big day in our top five Christmas dresses! Extra doesn’t cover it …

Bit extra? Good! The nation has spent most of the year in loungewear so why not got OTT for drinks with your chosen six? If you have to change out of your joggers you might as well slip into something iconic. Enjoy your return to socialising stylishly (and safely) with the queen of party dresses – the bodycon. Just don’t forget your coat! Outdoor heaters are no match for this bodycon …

Think of your work Xmas party via zoom as your final WFH styling challenge. Whether you’ve been part of the ‘cam on’ club since March or have enjoyed at-home anonymity (muted and faceless) the xmas party is your time to shine. Remind your colleagues how much of a style queen you are in a dress that refuses to be ignored. You can’t go wrong in a statement dress and a red lip! Just cross your fingers for a good internet connection …

Anyone else secretly enjoy Friendsmas more than the big day itself? Shh … don’t tell anyone! Dressing up for a date with the girl gang is our fave because you can go as OTT as you like with zero judgement. Try out new trends and step out of your comfort zone while getting merry with your mates. Serve looks for Secret Santa in a black and gold party dress and make sure to take a few pics for the ‘gram.

Forget the xmas eve pub crawl, we’re staying in this year and doing it in style. Sure, the loungewear set will make an appearance at some point, but we can’t wait to wear this midi dress first! Settle in to the next few days of pure family time and start the celebrations early with a couple of mince pies and (the first of many) Baileys.

Getting your xmas day look is key to the best Christmas ever. Luckily for you we’ve found the perfect frock. Festive red? Check! All the frills? Check! Enough room for xmas lunch, pudding and a cheeseboard? Check! Accessorise with a glass of fizz in each hand and you’re ready fpr the best day of the year.
