Dressing up for staying in has been part of our new normal this year. I make this statement as though I’ve actually ‘dressed up’ this year, when in reality, I’ve just slipped into a dress once or twice in an attempt to make myself feel a bit fancier. I’ve become a loungewear fanatic and somebody that survives most of the week in an oversized jumper…

However, the festive season will soon be upon us, and for better or worse – it is nice to just put on a lovely frock every now and then and feel a bit more human. I very much doubt this festive season will be full of parties and sparkly social gatherings, but that’s way less pressure as far as our December wardrobes are concerned. I think just having one dress that makes you feel like your best self at the ready is all you really need for the weeks that lie ahead. A piece you can dress up or down depending on the situation, and one that makes you feel happy when you’re wearing it… 

even if you’re just prancing around the kitchen!

I’ve curated all my favourites dresses below for you so that you to make the process a little easier! The dress I’m wearing here is a silky polka dot number by Ghost Fashion and I couldn’t recommend their dresses enough. It’s the type of piece I can wear for many moons to come because it’s so classic, but it’s easily styled for a more laid back Christmas with chunky boots or loafers and a cardigan or cropped jumper…
