2009 December 21

raglansweatredChristmas now means taking more care with your appearance – your favourite T-shirt might be something you can get away with wearing as you unwrap presents in the morning, but by lunchtime you need to be dressing smart-casual, especially if you’re entertaining guests. Aim for a polo-shirt with your new Christmas scarf over the top if you’re male, or for women, a long sleeved T-shirt with a shrug over the top.

The basic rule is to make a bit more effort that you usually would but not to get carried away unless there is actually a formal event (lunch with people from outside the family, drinks party etc) planned.

For trips to the pub, or out to make snowmen, choose a sleeveless fleece that allows you to move easily without losing temperature. Because winter is a grey time, choose bright colours for outdoor wear: red, bright blue or pink are ideal, but stay away from yellow if you’re a bit hungover as alcohol can make the skin yellower and the whites of the eyes somewhat tea coloured and yellow clothing simply emphasises this. A hat and scarf help to keep you warm and can add a colour contrast to your jacket or fleece so that you don’t lose your fashion cachet when you move into outdoor wear.

    I recommend a cashmere knit to your holiday wear advice. Although expensive, they are a great investment to battle the extreme cold days.
