December isn’t just about putting on the glitz! The flip side of party season is long winter weekends spent cosied up indoors, and getting all wrapped up for Christmas family fun. Dress smart for stylish lounging whatever you’re up to this month, with our pick of the season’s comfiest casuals. Carolyn Moore reports.
For a cover up that instantly pulls a look together, you can’t beat a big knit. Logos are big this season, and we love Tommy Hilfiger’s logo-tastic Fair Isle Intarsia sweater, €189.
If not literally, then figuratively. Hiking boots are back, so score bonus style points on your Xmas outings in these suedette fleece-lined boots by Kley, €78, Debenhams
Nothing super-carges your style game as quickly as a cape! Layer up, pull on a great pair of boots, and top off your look with this wardrobe here. Cape, €89.95, Zara.
‘Shape enhancing’ is not a phrase associated with comfort, but these Spanx moto leggings have a cult fashion blogger following for good reason! Invest now! €110, Brown Thomas.
If your trusty biker jacket isn’t cosy enough, level up with a fleece-lined flight jacket for all the style points with added warmth. Jacket by V by Very, €80, littlewoodsireland.ie.
Your search for the perfect boot ends here! With a comfortable mid-height block heel in delicious chocolate suede, these are a wear-with-anything classic! Suede boots, €119, H&M.
Don’t dull your sparkle this season, embrace a bit of daytime glitz with some sequins or embellishment. We love shape and subtle sparkle on this & Other Stories sweater, €99.
For maximum style without sacrificing on cosiness, layer up your knits. Fashion folk are wearing them head-to-toe and you can score a quick style win in River Island's layered dress, €75.
