Clare’s wardrobe go-to’s over the festive season

Festive lights on Christmas tree

Let’s face it – this year has been a tough one when it comes to knowing what to wear. Most of us have traded our jeans for joggers and high-heels for slippers! Dressing up for work and nights out has become much less frequent for a lot of us. I have pulled together a few of the pieces from our collection that I currently rely on and mixed in a few wardrobe staples that will hopefully see you through the next few months of this work from home routine and beyond – when all the lockdowns have passed. I can’t wait! 😊

The drop waist ditsy dress

This dress is so comfy and will go perfectly with some black leggings or tights in this cold weather. A chunky knit can be layered on top when it is really chilly too. I find it perfect to work from home and then relax in it later – after the kids are in bed – with a glass of wine!

Live… in leggings

I have to say I have rediscovered these over the last year and a good pair of black leggings are perfect to wear with one of our mini or knee length dresses instead of tights. They are comfy for working at home and look great with a pair of boots for the school run.

Animal print midi dress

The midi animal print dress

On days when you feel like you have nothing to wear, you can still depend on a bit of animal print to make you feel better – and it looks great on everyone. A dress is also such a great throw on item, with no thoughts on how to coordinate an outfit. This dress is midi length so comfortable enough to wear indoors and the long sleeves make it very versatile in all seasons. If, like me, you always favour dressing up on Christmas day this makes a perfect option and is comfy enough to relax on the sofa later after a big meal! Add some tights and boots and you are ready to head out for a walk!

Chunky cardigan

A perfect partner to your Pentlebay dress during the colder months. I often wear a chunky cardigan with a dress and tights, as well as the traditional chunky cardigan and jeans look. It’s so easy to go back to jumper and jeans every day in Winter so putting on a dress makes me feel like I’m dressing up and making more of an effort!

Black pocket dress

Who doesn’t need a little black dress in their wardrobe? This is a casual dress for everyday but can easily go from day to night with some statement jewellery. It works for me in the daytime with leggings or tights and boots. It has some large pockets too – always something I love with a dress!
