After a series of strange and fragmented Christmas celebrations last year, this festive season is all about making up for lost time. Whether that means reuniting with your pals for your annual boozy bar crawl or heading to the Christmas market for a night of fairground food and stomach-churning rides, we’re making every event count this December – and we require outfits to match our merry mood.
First and foremost, you’ll catch us layering up with merino knits and high-collared puffer coats for chilly temperatures. Then it’s all about adding a subtle sparkle to every outfit in your inventory, with glitter-lined trousers and diamanté-studded jeans. And of course, no party season would be complete without head-turning accessories, including top-handle handbags and statement jewellery.
Whatever your plans are this December, we’ve got the outfit inspiration covered. Click through the slideshow ahead to see everything on Team R29's wish lists this month…
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
