How to Style your Christmas Party Outfit

Whether you’re dressing for the annual work celebration or Christmas cocktails with friends, this is the time of year to go all out glam with your outfit. Just because it’s taking place over Zoom doesn’t mean you have to dress down this year!

Thanks to the likes of Thomas Sabo, Swarovski, Fiorelli Jewellery and our very own Stardust collection, we’ve got an abundance of sparkling jewellery on offer which is just perfect for dressing up your Christmas outfit this year. Endlessly eye-catching and on-trend, you can see just a few of our favourite pieces below…

Go for festive colours in your outfit – like silvers, golds, greens and reds – and don’t be afraid to try out a statement OTT design. It might be one of the only times of the year that you can get away with that glitzy sequin-covered dress!

Alternatively, perhaps the little black dress is more your style: a classic that will never fail to impress, especially when dressed up with some sparkling statement jewellery. This option might be our favourite, as it’s so versatile; you can create endless outfits by changing up your accessories each time, with the LBD as a timeless base.

How to Style your Christmas Eve Outfit

As it falls on a Thursday this year, Christmas Eve will likely just be a regular working day for most of us. But why not make things a little more exciting by putting a festive spin on your typical office wear (even if you’re working from home)?

To complete your Christmas Eve outfit, accessorise with some cute festive jewellery. Aim for just a little bit of sparkle without going to OTT – see some of our favourite picks below!

In terms of your clothes, why not spruce things up a bit with some ruffles or velvet, or go for something patterned over plain? And throw a little colour in there if you can – red or green will give off the festive vibes that you want!

How to Style your Christmas Day Outfit

Fashion might not be at the forefront of your mind on Christmas Day. For many, it’s a time to stay cosy in pyjamas, eat too many pigs in blankets, and crash out in front of It’s A Wonderful Life at around 5pm. And, of course, there’s the traditional post-Christmas dinner walk that will have you wondering Why do we do this every year? This Christmas might also involve a few (less traditional) video calls to extended family.

Whether you’re lounging or lunching, there are a few ways to easily style up your Christmas Day outfit! If you’re opting to stay in all day (no judgement), then it’s time to pull out your cosiest loungewear and slippers. If you’re going to be out and about, then we recommend keeping it comfortable but smart with clothing like chunky knitwear, warm coats and blouses – and adding a festive style twist with things like tartan patterning, ruffles and bright reds.

To accessorise, we suggest meaningful jewellery, as Christmas is a day associated with celebrating your loved ones. Maybe you have a piece of jewellery that was gifted to you by a relative the year before, or a family heirloom with special sentimental value.

Nomination bracelets can also be customised to reflect the importance of family, with the potential for some truly meaningful creations. Consider breaking out your favourite Christmas charms to embrace the festive feel (or you might even find one of these waiting for you under the Christmas tree…)!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, so embrace festive fashion this season! Make sure to view the full range of Christmas jewellery here at Joshua James, for endless gift inspiration and festive accessories for yourself.
