This festive season I’m delighted to say that I’m collaborating with Boden again on three extra special Christmas outfit posts! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did selecting, styling and wearing them, with three different seasonal dressing situations in mind. Without further ado, here’s outfit number one: a versatile midi dress that’s perfect for casual Christmassy days.
Nothing says Christmas like a jewel colour palette. Boden’s Cecilla midi dress combines two of my favourite things: a rich berry hue and polka dots. The semi-fitted cut is just to die for, nipping in at the waist and draping elegantly to the perfect midi length. The velvet bow necktie and frills at the collar and cuffs add a festively bohemian touch. I decided to emphasise this boho feel with the Helston faux fur gilet in midnight blue, which adds warmth as well as texture (plus, it has pockets. Yes!). It’s a great layering piece that I know will be a new wardrobe staple, as will my patent block heel boots. Both were ideal accessories for a day spent pottering and running seasonal errands. Plus, I’m looking forward to wearing the dress to a wedding next weekend with leather jacket and heels.
What are you wearing for casual Christmas days? How would you style the Boden Cecilla dress?
