How to look Christmassy without the flashing xmas tree earrings

By Tegan Taylor

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.
