December is a month of giving, joy and gratitude. But it’s also a month of work Christmas parties, school holiday break-ups, beach trips and family get-togethers. So what on Earth do you wear to all these social occasions? And without wanting to get too judgemental about it (’cause that really wouldn’t be in the spirit of the season, would it?), might we suggest it’s time to step away from the flashing, wreath-shaped earrings and “Santa I’ve been nice” t-shirts?
Fear not! Let us prove to you that a versatile dress and the right accessories can carry you right through December, no matter what stage of motherhood you’re in.
Conceal and reveal
For mums who are choosy about which of their assets they’d like to have on show, the dress below is a winner. Clever draping and a flat waistband help fake an hourglass, and the knee-length style is flattering to legs while still being cool enough for summer.
Rocking a baby bump this Christmas? There’s no need to miss out on a foxy yet festive wardrobe — try a holiday-red dress in a stretchy fabric and get accessorising.
