Festive With Friends

A Christmas gathering with friends is a mandatory event. Usually, you gather with friends sometime in December for some end of year drinks and some good laughs. Depending on what kind of event you have on the horizon, you may be left wondering what do I wear for Christmas parties with friends? And with a million other things on your plate (think: gift shopping, cooking, planning and RSVPing), our helpful edit will guide you through all the best options for any kind of festive occasion you have coming up with your very best friends.

It may be a house party, a night out in the city for good food and drinks or an exclusive invitation to a classic holiday soiree. Whatever the case maybe you best be sure that you need to look and feel your best for the season. A classic Australia Christmas calls for chic midi dresses that sway in the cooler afternoon breeze and floral print numbers that scream summer holidays. What should I wear for Christmas with friends? Well, we are just getting started.


No Stopping, Bar Hopping

If you have an event in the city this Christmas with you friends you need a sequin dress for ultimate festiveness. You may be bar hopping with friends during the peak of festive season – think drinks at the Opera Bar in Sydney’s sun or going from one restaurant to the next in the cosmopolitan Melbourne city. Either way a sequin dress or a little white dress is the perfect option for when you are out in the city at Christmas time.


The Mid Week Champagne Brunch

The Christmas brunch with the girls could be a mid-week affair or it could be held on a Sunday. What to wear to this said brunch? A chic floral print dress and some colourful earrings or a floral embellished hair accessory make the perfect brunch pairing. Throw in some champagne and festive treats and you are ready for the annual Christmas brunch with your best girlfriends.


A Picnic in the Park

A sunny picnic with friends and family is the perfect occasion to wear a casual summer dress. Think wrap dresses and printed dresses with sleeves. A casual dress will make you look a little festive and fun but not too over the top for a more casual affair – like a picnic or catch up near the beach. Pair your summer dress with some chic earrings and a pair of slides to dress it up that little bit more.


The Exclusive Invitation

A more exclusive Christmas party with friends could often mean a dress code. It could be a cocktail party which means you need your best cocktail dress or party dress, or even a more formal affair like a black-tie dress code. Either way it is best to follow the dress code on the invitation while still adding a little festive flair to bring up the Christmas spirit. Think bold and summery colours like pinks and greens or fun embellishments like feathers and off the shoulder dress features.


With the Table Set

If you are hosting at your house for your friend’s Christmas this year, we already know that you have the table all set to go and you may be too stressed about cooking to think about dressing. If so you should go for a flowy midi dress that is breezy and not overly complicated. Something comfortable and chic – this could be a printed dress or a one shoulder dress. Pop on a hair accessory and you will look perfect for the occasion (and it was oh so easy!).
