Style Guide: Festive Dressing

It's the most wonderful time of the year, but it's also the busiest and there's no doubt you may have left your festive attire until last minute - especially if you're still searching for presents. 

Here at Q&L we have put together a range of outfits suitable for the festive period and also a variety of dress styles. From cosy and casual to dressed to impress, whatever you decide to wear, we wish you a very Merry Christmas! 

Keep on reading to see which outfit sparks your Christmas cheer.

The Christmas Jumper

If you're a festive fanatic then you're sure to be wearing a Christmas Jumper to every event you're invited to. For a casual approach we've teamed the R.M. Williams Black Suede Comfort Craftsman with black skinny jeans and a minimalistic Christmas jumper - to which some of the proceeds go to Prostate Cancer. A Chelsea boot is always a strong contender to have in your shoe collection as they can step a casual outfit up a a notch. 

The Checkered Pant

If you like to make a statement in your wardrobe a checkered pant is always a great shout. Take the colours from the checks to coordinate the rest of your outfit and jobs a good'un. Here we've gone for a neutral palette which is a popular tonal trend at the moment and the Barker Fleet double Monk Strap Brogues in antique rosewood are the perfect footwear to complement the turtle neck and checks. 

The Alternative Dresser 

The Shade Fume Marl Moon 'Poison' Gibson Shoes are perfect for the rebellious rogue who likes one stand out piece in his outfit. The laser cutting and marble tones are asking for some serious bravery from their wearer and the alternative dresser who likes super tight skinny jeans and a waistcoat could definitely be the person to pull them off. Make them your statement shoes this festive season.

The Traditional Dresser

As smart as can be, wherever you are you're always seen in your shirt and tailored trousers. Here we have matched a white shirt with grey trousers but to make it a little more festive we've added a coloured shoe into the mix - the Cheaney Fenchurch Oxford shoes in burgundy, which is the perfect Christmas colour if we do say so.

The Christmas Traveller

Running errands over the festive period or travelling back home? Here we have put together a casual look offering major comfort. The knitted jumper paired with the light wash jeans makes for a slightly oversized look, which also allows you to layer with a shirt or polo underneath and your choice of coat on top. Here we have gone for a tailored long line coat in tan to pair with the Tricker's Stow 5634/24 Dainite Derby Brogue Boots.

The Coloured Pant

For a formal event, there's no doubt you'll be wearing a fitted pair of pants, but why not throw in some festive colouring. Here we have made the teal/jade coloured pants the statement piece within the outfit and kept the shirt and shoes minimal. Oxfords are always your best option for formal occasions as their plain front opts for a classic appeal. The Loake Sharp will help put your best foot forward.
So there you have it, with these few festive looks in mind you should be ready to step into Christmas whatever the occasion.
