Anya Hindmarch£695

A ski fairisle knit is such a good option to both look festive and keep warm – it’s the modern Christmas jumper.


I always have intentions of getting glammed up, but by the time I’ve finished cooking and running after the kids, trousers are the only option.


These are posh house slippers that you can also wear to pop to the shops; the red velvet makes them feel particularly festive.

Astley Clarke£85

A good pair of hoops can make or break a Christmas outfit – I love the size of these and the touch of green makes them feel a bit special.

Bobbi Brown£23

No one can be bothered with a full face of make-up on the 25th, so I love this Bobbi Brown cream eye shadow to make me look as good as possible in Christmas photos with minimal effort.

River Island£16

Although Christmas in the UK is cold, I always get hot when I’m cooking. This festive feminist T-shirt is right up my street (and suitable for the 25th in the Southern Hemisphere too).  

Petro’s Christmas Day

I’m in South Africa this Christmas, but I know most of you will be in wintry climes. So I thought instead of featuring my actual Christmas Day outfit, I would showcase my imaginary Northern Hemisphere one. Warm and practical for everyone, from the hostess to the perfectly dressed guest.
