This year, I had to wear formal dresses at Christmas because it is a formal event in the UK and the dress code is very strict.
I can understand the need to wear a formal dress for a formal occasion but the more formal you look, the more uncomfortable it is to wear the dress.
The dress code on formal occasions is not enforced.
There are certain formal dress items that people wear at Christmas, for example: formal suits and coats.
I wear my suit jacket, black tie and white shoes at Christmas and my shoes are white and black.
My shoes are my everyday shoes and I don’t feel that I have to wear something that is not fashionable.
If you want to go out with someone and have a casual dinner party, you can wear your suit jacket and tie and the dinner party will be casual.
However, if you want a formal dinner party you have to be wearing a suit jacket with tie and shoes.
For my formal dress, I chose to wear my black tie with a white shirt and black dress shoes.
If I wanted to go to a casual dining room, I would go with a black tie.
My dress is a little loose and I think it’s fine for the holidays.
However if I had a wedding, I might consider wearing a white suit and tie instead.
But I also don’t want to be too formal and would like to dress up a little bit for the occasion.
It would be more comfortable to wear what I want to wear.
My favourite Christmas dress is this white silk formal dress that I bought at a department store.
It’s long, thin and has a lovely bow.
I like it because it fits well and it’s soft.
I would wear it at home, in the garden or in the living room, just to make sure I was wearing a dress that looked comfortable.
What do you think?
Have you ever had to dress in a formal attire at Christmas?
