5 summer dresses that are perfect for Christmas day

5 summer dresses that are perfect for Christmas day

Whatever you get up to on Christmas day, it’s always nice to mark the festive occasion with a celebratory dress. We’ve put together five summer dresses that not capture the joy of this time of year, but offer comfort wrapped up in elegance.

1. Timeless by Heather Hill wrap dress $99.95

This berry coloured number is simple, elegant and extremely feminine. The v-neckline and full skirt create a glamourous shape that is accentuate by the wrap around sash. We especially love the gathering at the shoulders as a thoughtful finish.  

2. Blackpepper Crissal dress $119.00

This bright, abstract pattern is perfect for getting into the festive spirit. Enjoy short sleeves, a fit and flare shape and 91% polyester fabric.

3. Metcalf shirtmaker dress $89.95

Is Christmas a casual, or perhaps an outdoor affair? This comfy “shirt dress” is a great option for back yard BBQs – especially if you’ll be running around with the little ones.

4. Timeless by Heather Hill Lucille dress $129.00

A gorgeous 1940s, “I Love Lucy” inspired number with an adaptable back for ultimate comfort. We love the flattering scoop neckline and modest but breezy hem length. However, the real winner is the extra-long zip for ease of dressing and the tie at the waist, for a beautiful shape.

5. Lowes rose pattern dress $47.95

If you want to go for ease above glamour, this cheap and cheerful smock has a bright pattern and soft material. We recommend this one for red wine drinkers who know they are prone to a slip of the hand!
