Dress well this festive season with Lily Ella

There’s no denying it, the festive season is well underway - as people everywhere look to buy presents for their loved ones online, prepare to decorate their houses and start filling their calendar with all kinds of exciting festivities.

In this season of giving, it's easy to forget about treating yourself, but with our guide to dressing well this festive season, you’ll find an outfit for just about every fun-filled activity you have planned this winter to treat yourself to. It is Christmas, after all. Read on as we walk you through some of our favourite festive picks, to help you look and feel your best - no matter the occasion.

Cosy night in

For those winter nights when it’s too cold to consider going outside and all you want to do is to snuggle up with a hot drink and watch a Christmas film, stay with Lily Ella to perfect that comfortable and effortlessly stylish look.

Our Allison Poncho, with its relaxed, over the shoulder fit and velvety soft feel is the perfect cover up for a cosy night in. We suggest pairing this elegant ladies poncho with our equally luxurious Wool Mixed Trousers. Available in a variety of fashionable colourways, these trousers are cut to flatter any shape and are made of a heavier weight wool mix fabric that is guaranteed to keep you warm. The fully elasticated waistband on these trousers also means they stay comfortable all day long, perfect for a cosy night in.

A virtual party

Sacrificing seeing your family and friends in person this festive season is undoubtedly disappointing, but while you may not be able to give them a long overdue hug, you can still spend quality time with them. Many families are moving their traditional Christmas parties, quizzes and get-togethers online this year so make sure you’re virtual-party ready by taking a look through the stunning dresses available at Lily Ella.

There are so many fashionable dresses for ladies in the Lily Ella collection that would dazzle the camera and your guests, but one of our top recommendations is the Whitley Dress. This stunning, elegant and flattering dress is perfect for any occasion, and the delicate lace detailing is guaranteed to draw the eye, but for a virtual party it's not all about looks, comfort has to be considered too! For the Whitley Dress, comfort is built in thanks to the polyester stretch material, so you can relax and enjoy the party.

While the dress is definitely the most important component of any party outfit, a virtual party, especially a festive one, calls for some added sparkle. That’s why we suggest pairing this simple black dress with the dazzling Flower Burst Necklace. The frosted colours on this statement necklace are perfect for a winter themed outfit and, with the rounded neckline of the Whitley Dress, it’s handmade glass and pearlised beads complement the outfit perfectly.

Socially distanced outside event

Even with everything up in the air this festive season, we’re hopeful that there will be plenty of outdoor Christmas events to attend such as traditional Christmas markets, lighting ceremonies and gatherings to see the local tree unveiling, but even if there isn’t, you could always winterise your garden and host your own safe get-together. Bring out the blankets, string up those twinkling lights and light the outdoor fire pit to create a magical space for snuggling up with delicious roasted chestnuts, or marshmallows for the children! Whatever you’re planning, stay warm and gloriously stylish this winter with Lily Ella outfits that are sure to impress - even from a distance!

The essential item of clothing for any outdoor event is a warm coat and, with the stunning collection of winter coats available at Lily Ella, it can be a challenge to pick just one! To help narrow it down, we’ve picked out our luxurious and dramatic Remey Cape in Bottle Green as one of our favourites. This fashionable womens cape is perfect for festive occasions with its Nordic styling and detachable scarf and, with its rich green colour, you’ll look exceptionally Christmassy.

When we described our Anika Polo Neck Top as ‘indispensable’ and ‘the perfect layering piece’ we meant it. The perfect pairing, this long sleeved black polo neck allows the show-stopper Remey Cape to shine whilst maintaining a classy winter look.

Christmas Sunday best

Christmas means many things to many people and, while it is largely thought of simply as a time of celebration and giving, the religious aspect of the holiday remains. If you’re planning on attending Christmas services at your local church this year, make sure you are looking your Sunday best with a little help from Lily Ella.

For this occasion, which remains important and close to the hearts of many, we suggest this reserved yet beautiful Cassy Tunic. Simple and elegant, the Cassy blouse comes in a rich blue colour and has a luxuriously silky feel. Pair this blouse with our equally smart Callista Skirt, which is made of a jacquard fabric in salt and pepper coloured squares, and you’ll be able to sing proudly and sit comfortably for any church visits this Christmas.

Christmas Eve traditions

Many families have their own cherished Christmas Eve traditions that they gather for every year. Whether you and yours spend the night before Christmas watching a favourite festive film, opening a small present each or drinking hot chocolate together, be sure to do it in our elegant range of ladies nightwear.

For this relaxed family affair, we recommend donning our luxurious and beautifully patterned Nightingale Dressing Gown. With its relaxed kimono style fit and wonderfully soft fabric, you’ll be lounging in true comfort and luxury this Christmas Eve. If you’re really looking to maximise on comfort, slip into our Francesca Slippers too, your warm and cosy feet will thank you for it.
