Festive Dressing Blog Post

By Jess Alizzi @jessalizzi

Dressing for the festive season in Australia is SO different to everywhere else in the world! Primarily because in Australia it is the middle of summer during December and while a large portion of the world celebrates Christmas with hot chocolate, eggnog, snow and woolly jumpers, we typically celebrate Christmas by the beach, with a barbeque! 

As Spencer Outlet Centre’s Style Ambassador, I was given the opportunity to create a few festive-inspired looks using pieces and accessories only found at Spencer Outlet Centre. Thankfully the Centre has a huge selection of amazing retailers, making it super easy to create outfits that work for whatever your festive plans may be this year!

Look one is a super chic, easy look I created using items found at Spencer Outlet Centre exclusively. This is the perfect casual, Christmas look. The red floral print makes it super festive and fun and paired back with fresh white sneakers and a basket bag, it is perfect for a day by the beach or at the park with loved ones! This dress is super cute and I love how it could easily be dressed up with heels and a fancier bag for the evening!

Look 1: Dress $29.90 Glassons, shoes $120 Converse, bag $34.95 TK Maxx

Look two is another super festive-inspired look. Pairing in one of the main colours of the festive season being green, I created a look that was a bit fancier than the last but still really easy to wear and could be dressed down with sandals or sneakers! 

Look 2: Top $29.99 and skirt $19.95 Glassons, boots $128 Windsor Smith, bag TK Maxx

Look three is the perfect Christmas party look! I love this outfit for a more glam-chic Christmas celebration! Whether you are going out to a nice restaurant for lunch with your family or taking your celebrations into the evening – the earrings totally dress up the look and make it super party-ready! I also love this look for your office Christmas party or something of that variety! 

Look 3: Dress $149.99 Forever New, boots $128 Windsor Smith, earrings $22.99 Forever New, bag TK Maxx

The final look I created is a bit more formal! It is a super simple, chic monochrome look! This is the kind of outfit you could wear during the day to work and then dress up for your festive party in the evening. Just add some heels, sparkly earrings and a bit of red lipstick and you’re good to go!

Look 4: Top $59.99, pants $89.99 and earrings $22.99 Forever New, boots $128 Windsor Smith, bag TK Maxx
