What does the perfect Christmas outfit look like?
Should it be sexy? Should it be chic? Should it be comfortable?
First of all, there is rule number one: You have to feel comfortable in it! It can either be a festive dress/robe or a cozy sweater combined with jeans. Finally, it is most important to feel comfortable and leave extra space for the Christmas goose. As long as you are celebrating with your family, I think it doesn’t matter what you are wearing. Still it’s more beautiful to celebrate the traditions and dress up a little more. Actually, my Christmas motto relates to the “mainly-comfortable-devise”.
But it looks different when you’re invited to a Christmas party! Wearing jeans and pullover for a Christmas Party? That’s a No-Go! And that is the reason why there exists and unwritten law of “vest-obligation”. Everybody’s getting a little chic while interpreting the party-topic individually: Some wear chic blouses to pants, others like wearing dresses. I personally decided to go with the second variation – I mean, how often do you get the chance to wear a beautiful festive dress? Exactly! That’s why my outfits always depend on the location and host: Wearing a sloppy sweater or baggy pants for a Christmas party at the Hotel de Rome? No way!
As I was actually strolling through the TK Maxx Store looking for lovely Christmas presents, I found the perfect dress: a little festive, but not too cheesy/kitschy and definitely not to formal/fancy compared to a typical evening robe, but rather a perfect mix of cool and “Christmassy”. Especially, the TK Maxx Store close to Alexanderplatz is one of the places where you can find me treasure hunting regularly – that is where I use to find individual pieces from great brands, sometimes you’re even lucky to find pieces from designer labels with a best price guarantee up to 60% off the original price. Falling over this bag in the accessories department completed my Christmas look and makes it even more festive: In my case it’s a glittery bag, that was just about 30 EUR. Actually, it is a bag that’s supposed to be for the big performance, that’s why it’s totally fine to go with an affordable alternative/version.
