My Christmas day outfit has developed over the years from pyjamas til noon, transitioning to swimwear for most of the day, to now something I give more than passing thought to -normally still pretty casual, but something festive, fun and cool to wear.

Nothing is more important than making sure that you have the right Christmas day outfit for how and where you are spending Christmas.

Do you like to embrace the colours of the festive season and dress to suit our humid Queensland weather?

I hope that the suggestions below might just help you get your look together and decide what to wear Christmas Day?

Some people take the festive theme to extremes and dress in Christmas colours for their Christmas day outfit. I can’t say that’s my take but red is a great option in its own right and this Country Road dress bridges smart casual perfectly.


If you find yourself at the beach this Christmas, sometimes a sarong is all that’s needed to finish your outfit and Alexis Dawn has some of my favourite this season.

Of course no outfit is complete without accessories and Brisbane label Red Phoenix Emporium has these gorgeous tassel earrings in a range of colours, for $39. They fire up any ensemble and are a sure way to add some Christmas cheer to your look.
