Here for the Festive Dazzlers 

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – the holidays! You may already have a work Christmas party locked in, be deciding who’s going to host the family on Christmas Day, and be getting the kids ready for their school’s end-of-year celebrations, but when you attend all these amazing events, the real question is what are you going to wear?


Deciding on a Christmas party outfit can be tricky because there are so many ways you can go. Do you opt for the traditional green and red colour palette, a luxe gold and white look, or do you lean into the party aspect and don a fun little black dress to dance in?


So, if you’ve already got a full calendar for the Christmas season and need some dazzling outfit inspiration – you’ve come to the right place. We’ve gathered the best Christmas party outfit ideas for every event across the holiday season, because at Stockland, we're here for the Festive Dazzlers.

For the work Christmas party

When it comes to work Christmas party outfit ideas, it’s best to keep things minimal – and this goes for everyone! As you’ll be around your colleagues and managers for this event, you want to leave a good impression, so this is a great event to break out your favourite suit, because a suit isn’t just for the office anymore! Whether you prefer a neutral beige, black, or white, or try a bolder hue, wearing a suit to your work Christmas party will ensure that you look effortlessly fabulous when you’re celebrating with your colleagues. Accessorise with bold jewellery like a chunky gold chain necklace or a sleek gold watch and you’ll be sure to look chic.  


For the kids Christmas celebration

At the end of the year, there’s always a party or two for the kids to attend. Whether it’s an end-of-year celebration at their school or a simple barbecue hosted by the parents of their best friends, making sure you have some festive outfits for the kids ready to go is essential! When it comes to kids Christmas party outfit ideas, it’s best to choose pieces that’ll keep them cool and are easy to move around in. For the girls, opt for a light dress in a bold hue and accessorise with metallic shoes and jewellery. For the boys, go for a button up shirt in a breezy fabric such as linen or cotton, and pair it with shorts or pants that aren’t too restrictive.



For the Christmas cocktail event

Christmas cocktail events are always great to dress for because you really get to embrace the party vibes. If you’re looking for the perfect outfit to wear to this kind of soirée, then we highly recommend going for something metallic or sequin heavy. These pieces will catch the light incredibly well and when paired with some delicate silver jewellery and shoes, you’ll certainly look and feel like the life of the party. The same goes for menswear, if you’re heading to a cocktail event this Christmas, pair colourful trousers and a slim linen shirt with silver accessories that add a bit of sparkle to your ensemble.  


For the family gathering on Christmas Day

Now for the main event – Christmas Day! Choosing an outfit to wear on Christmas Day can depend on what you and your family all enjoy doing, however it’s always a good idea to dress up slightly, even if you’re just heading over to your parents’ house for a casual barbecue. A colourful or floral summer dress is always a great outfit option on Christmas Day. Not only will you feel put together, but you’ll also be comfortable enough to play with the kids and help serve up dessert if you need to! For the men, pair chino shorts with a light linen shirt in your favourite shade, to elevate your look.


There you have it, a series of Christmas party outfit ideas for every event you happen to attend during the festive season! All that’s left to do now is head into your local Stockland centre to pick up these must-have pieces. Merry Christmas!
