Lunching with the in-laws this Christmas? Have you torn apart your wardrobe & still can't find something to wear? Fear not - we're here to help you dress immaculately for your favourite in-laws!

The second instalment of our new "What to Wear to..." series explores the perfect outfits to look effortlessly cool at your in-laws house this xmas! Featuring our take on the viral "frazzled english woman" TikTok trend, to the chic "old money" look - we've got you covered. Featuring brands such as Zadig & Voltaire, Reiss & Paloma Wool.

Old Money, Yummy Mummy

Keep it simple & chic this Christmas and wear a timeless look inspired by the 'old money' aesthetic. The old money aesthetic, or “soft luxury,” often consists of preppy, monochromatic and covertly luxurious clothing. We love this gorgeous satin midi slip skirt from Ghost, paired with the elegant knee-length boots from By Far. Add some edge with this fun "Rock & Roll" Zadig & Voltaire jumper, and make sure you wrap up warm with this stunning Max Mara overcoat to complete this classy, yummy mummy look!

The Frazzled English Woman

Channel your inner Bridget Jones/Iris Simpkins (à la Kate Winslet's character in The Holiday) - but make it fashionable! A recent TikTok "micro-trend" has seen the resurgence of the fashion & aesthetics of the typical 2000s English rom-com female lead. Notably defined by her undone hair held together with a claw clip, knitwear that looks like it was made by your grandmother, minimal make-up and funky scarves. We've found a way to elevate this look, creating a chic but still quintessentially English outfit for those who want to look stylish but don't feel comfortable dressing up to the nines! The G-Star wide leg jeans form a nice silhouette, elongating any frame, and combined with the gorgeous Karen Millen bardot knit provide a perfect balance to the wide leg bottoms. These adorable & viral on TikTok miu miu ballet flats are the perfect casual but elegant shoe, and of course, the look wouldn't be completed without a funky scarf! We've picked this delightful and stripey Paloma Wool scarf as the perfect "Frazzled English Woman" accessory!

The Power Statement

Want to make an entrance and be absolutely UNFORGETTABLE this Christmas? Then you must, must, must wear this stunning velvet red power suit from Reiss! Sleek, sexy and (of course) festive - you can't go wrong. The cut of the blazer is perfect (especially after your third plate of Christmas dinner leftovers), and add the Gucci loafers for a more sophisticated alternative to your slippers. Accessories can be minimal since the suit has such a wow-factor, but a cute pair of gold earrings and a Blair Waldorf-esque headband never go a-miss!

Happy Dressing & Merry Christmas!
