It’s the most wonderful time of the year! We’re coming up to the big day and you’re probably starting to wonder: what do I wear on Christmas day? Do I stick to a baggy Christmas jumper so I can eat all the food in sight? Or do I dress up this year in a sparkly dress? If you need style inspiration, take a look at the royal family. The royals are always in their best attire this time of year, and they are always seen attending the St Mary Magdalene Sandringham church service in all their finery. Discover the royal family’s Christmas style secrets and how you can copy their looks this Christmas.

 

Sparkle in gemstones like the Queen

Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II has a signature aesthetic, and one that will never go out of style. For every public event or function, she is seen in bold colours and coordinating her coats with her hats. Besides her tiaras, she sticks to the jewellery staples and what she knows best. She is never seen without a glamorous sparkling brooch or a string of pearls - classic accessories which will look perfect on Christmas day.

Dazzle in drop earrings like Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton goes all out for the festive season, indulging in tartan prints and bold reds. She also loves black, velvet and lace this time of year, and is often seen in a dress incorporating all three when she’s attending a red carpet or fancy event in December. We often see her on the way to the church service, where she is spotted wearing intricate fascinators and a classy pair of drop earrings. While the fascinator might be a stretch, drop earrings will look gorgeous paired with a cracker hat!

Keep it casual like Princess Diana

Princess Diana

A style icon throughout the 80s and 90s, Princess Diana loved to keep it casual around Christmas time. While announcing her engagement, she was seen in a Christmas jumper and wellington boots! Generally around Christmas, she was spotted in plaid or polka dots, but the above are our favourite Christmas looks of hers. The black and yellow plaid coat is accompanied by a pair of chunky circular black earrings. On a ski trip, she was spotted in a basic pair of gold hoops and no look of hers was ever complete without her sparkling sapphire ring.
