Top fashion trends you’ll love this Christmas  

1. Light breezy fabrics

A balmy summer Christmas Day + loads of food = help me I need comfort. For the last few seasons, linen has been a hit across homewares and fashion alike, and we’re not seeing this trend disappearing any time soon. Soft, loose-fitting linen dresses, shorts, pants and shirts make for a perfect easy-to-wear beachside or backyard Christmas Day outfit. Check out Adairs or Pillow Talk for all your lovely linen looks!  

2. Get your Christmas on

An oldie but a goodie, we’re seeing statement accessories in red, green and white, popping up in loads of stores this festive season. Whether you love a subtle piece like a red satin headband or a huge pair of dangly emerald green earrings — it’s the right time to lean into those delicious Christmas colours and bling it up! Check out Lovisa or Colette for inspiration and fun accessories.  

3. Swimwear as outerwear

When it comes to celebrating Christmas in Australia, there’s usually a body of water not so far away. Whether you’re on the beach, in the pool or under the sprinkler, swimwear as outerwear is a huge trend this season. Pair a one-piece with a high-waisted maxi skirt or don a linen suit with a bright-coloured bikini top underneath. This trend will have you going from lunch to swim in no time. 

Head into Glassons and try this trend on for size this summer.  

4. Suiting with a twist

Leave the flip-flops at home — Christmas calls for you to take your style up a notch. Think relaxed linen suiting with textured pocket squares, ties and maybe even a sneaky novelty Christmas sock for a pop colour. Head into Connor and Axl & Co to see all the latest in men's fashion trends for summer 2023.  

6. Versatility and personalisation

Wondering what to wear to a Christmas party? Make a festive swap out this season — turn the Little Black Dress for the LRD — the Little Red Dress and turn heads at your next event. Our hot tip is to wear the dress as many times as you want but just mix it up with existing accessories for a different feel each time! Visit Forever New and Witchery for Christmas outfits that will wow this year.  

7. Fabulous footwear

This Christmas, the name of the game is glam and comfy — We’re talking about sandals! Flatforms or platforms, strappies or slides — no matter what your favourite style is, look for a pair that are embellished with studs or stones and feature fun pops of colour. For festive footwear that you’ll wear for years to come, visit Mathers or JD.  

8. Staple items for the kids

Not only is your life jam packed with events, your kids will be busy too. From school dances and Christmas concerts to family events and carols by candlelight, you’ll need some outfits that they feel comfy in. Go for neutral staples like shorts and t-shirts or a cute linen dress so they can mix and match the looks themselves. But remember it’s Christmas, so grab a few pieces they can use to jazz up their outfit — a sparkly scrunchie or a pair of novelty socks will inspire them to look their best.

Check out Lovisa, Target and Big W and your kids will shine!  

It doesn’t matter if you're attending a Christmas party or simply enjoying some moments at home, we’ve got you covered from head to toe, your way.
