Festive fashion SOS

This festive season, more than ever before, we all want to feel our most fabulous even if we aren't going far. We called on the fashionistas at Thackeray's Woman in Northampton to find out what they'll be wearing for Christmas and New Year, from pjs and loungewear to spangly frocks.

Rachel-Richards-Rails-Ugg

Change your spots

PJs to put on after you’ve changed out of your actual nightwear à la Coco Chanel, darling. These gorgeously soft, luxurious leopard print numbers have been spotted on the likes of Millie Mackinstosh, so you’ll be in super-stylish company ripping open your pressies and sipping bucks fizz on Christmas morning, especially if you pair them with some luxury sheepskin slippers to keep your toes cosy. These ones from Ugg have proper rubber soles, so you can dash out the the recycling bin in them too. Posh.

Rachel wears PJs by Rails £160 and slippers by Ugg £80.

Ella Richards Rails Ugg

I heart nightwear

Like mother, like daughter. These shortie love heart pjs make for the perfect excuse to light the fire and get cosy, whilst still looking a bit glam with not a frumpy towelling dressing downs in sight. Teamed here with the Ugg slippers in black and grey.

Ella wears PJs by Rails £155 and slippers by Ugg £80.

Rache Richards Les Girls Les Boys Guess

Tracking the trends

We are all over the joggers and heels trend right now – perfect for adding a touch of glam to your loungewear and zhuzhing up your festive vibes. This tracksuit from ultra cool label Les Girls Les Boys is as seen on Billie Piper in Sky Atlantic’s smash hit I Hate Suzie. Pair with strappy heels like these from Guess, currently on sale.

Rachel wears bottoms £85 and top £85 from Les Girls Les Boys and heels by Guess now £50 in sale.

Ella RichardsJ Brand Rails Guess

Classic Christmas

If you get dressed up for Christmas Day then it might as well be into something as stylish as this combo. The coated jeans from J Brand are super high quality and have a touch of stretchiness so you can squeeze in as many roasties as you like, whilst the white love heart shirt from Rails gives a playful twist to a classic look. Team with heels from Guess, as above.

Ella wears shirt by Rails £145, Jeans by J Brand £295 and heels by Guess now £50 in sale.

Goth Girl

’70s boho vibe: check. Voluminous smock dress to allow for extra helpings at Christmas lunch: check. Northamptonshire shiny boots: check. If sparkles and sweetness ain’t your thing, this smock dress from Faithful The Brand gives a boho luxe rock chick vibe to your festive fashion that also works year-round to maximise cost per wear. Pair with patent platform DMs, which also work with everyday jeans or cut-off shorts and a tailored jacket in summer.
