Packing to go away for the Christmas holidays always takes up more space than you expect – it’s not just the presents but outfits for all those festive occasions. I’ve never needed an excuse to pack an extra outfit but this year MyTights.com has done some of the thinking for you and provided our selection of what we’ll be taking away for the Christmas break .
If your Christmas Eve is about catching up with old friends over a glass of mulled wine in the pub before heading on to the late Christmas service and your local church – then you will need to dress appropriately. I’d recommend these Wool Rib Tights from Trasparenze – their high wool content will keep your legs nice and warm in a drafty church whilst allowing you skin to breath so you don’t overheat in front of that roaring fire. If ribbed tights are not for you and you prefer a smoother finish then the Gennifer Merino Wool Tights – also by Trasparenze come in a range of gorgeous colours and will also keep you feeling snug as well as glamourous.
Whether you are the one slaving over a hot stove or not, Christmas Day should be all about putting on the glitz. The Bebaroque Carla Tights are a great way to add a little sparkle to your Christmas day – their metallic stubs stretch and will glint as you move. Choose them in plum, don a paper crown to match and you are ready for Christmas to commence.
When the food and drink hangover begins to kick in around Boxing Day there is always someone that suggests going for a long walk to burn off all those excess calories. Whether you are the one that initiates the big family walk the one that gets talked into it, go prepared! Try some over knee socks, the Jonathan Aston Long Wool Mix Boot Socks are brilliant under a pair of wellies and the angora wool in them makes them super warm and soft. Wear them pushed down and slouchy or, if you are really feeling the chill, pulled up over the knee.
New Year’s Eve
Finally the night we have all been waiting for – New Years Eve is the time to dress up and get out on the town.
