PICKING THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS OUTFIT
First of all, there is rule number one: You have to feel comfortable in it! It can either be a festive dress/robe or a cozy sweater combined with jeans. Finally, it is most important to feel comfortable and leave extra space for the Christmas turkey that is nicely cooking in the oven.
As long as you are celebrating with your family, I think it doesn’t matter what you are wearing. Still it’s more beautiful to celebrate the traditions and dress up a little more. Actually, my Christmas motto relates to the “mainly-comfortable-devise”.
But it looks different when you’re invited to a Christmas party! Wearing jeans and pullover for a Christmas Party? That’s a No-Go! And that is the reason why there exists and unwritten law of “vest-obligation”. Everybody’s getting a little chic while interpreting the party-topic individually: Some wear chic blouses to pants, others like wearing dresses. I personally decided to go with the second variation – I mean, how often do you get the chance to wear a beautiful festive dress? Exactly! That’s why my outfits always depend on the location and host: Wearing a sloppy sweater or baggy pants for a Christmas party at the Hotel de Rome? No way
As I was actually strolling through the TK Maxx Store looking for lovely Christmas presents, I found the perfect dress: a little festive, but not too cheesy/kitschy and definitely not to formal/fancy compared to a typical evening robe, but rather a perfect mix of cool and “Christmassy”. Especially, the TK Maxx Store close to Alexanderplatz is one of the places where you can find me treasure hunting regularly – that is where I use to find individual pieces from great brands, sometimes you’re even lucky to find pieces from designer labels with a best price guarantee up to 60% off the original price.
