Throw on a blazer for a warm-weather corporate vibe, or pair them with a cute top for a low-key look that’s perfect for mingling over some office punch.

If you’re more of a dress kinda person and you’re on the lookout for the ideal work Christmas party outfit, the Petal & Pup Aminah Puff Sleeve Dress is your go-to. The round neckline and mid sleeves with elasticised cuffs strike that perfect balance between casual and stylish, giving you an easy-going yet polished vibe. It’s the kind of dress that says, “I’m here for the festivities – and I mean business.”

Cute Christmas Day outfits.

Who says you can’t be festive and comfy at the same time? Whether you’re unwrapping pressies under the tree, lounging at the beach or indulging in a cosy family brunch, we’ve got your Christmas outfit inspo covered. From effortlessly cool shirts to breezy dresses in seasonal colours, these outfits are sure to level up your at-home celebration style.

The secret ingredient to nailing that festive Christmas fit, the Princess Polly Caraliia Shirt Green ensures you stay comfy while still looking like you put in some effort (even if you didn’t). With a seashell design that screams Aussie Christmas, pair this shirt with a pair of statement sunglasses to bring that coastal coolness to your ensemble.

Made for comfort and crafted with an eye for detail, the Kivari Riza Crochet Midi Dress is a game changer for those who want to look chic without breaking a sweat. Layer it over swimwear for a resort-inspired look, and keep it cool on those scorching Christmas days.

Fam into taking Chrissie-themed pics? Ditch the ugly jumper and pop on The Iconic & Other Stories Ruffle Neck Linen Midi Dress. Nailing the theme with its Christmas-red hue and crafted from pure linen, this dress is a celebration of quality and comfort. We love the ruffled square neckline and shoulder straps for that touch of playfulness.
