How to Style – 5 Festive Outfits

At Leiden we love dressing to theme and there is nothing that floats our boat quite like festive dressing. Rather than reaching for your tried and trusted Christmas t-shirt or jumper (although these are both very good options), we suggest you rifle through your closet and see what else you can find in a Christmas colour palette and have a play.

After such a rifle in my own wardrobe, I present to you a few festive options. My modus operendi was to make use of anything red, green and metallic.

Emma Batchelor

Emma Batchelor

As well as a near obsessive interest in fashion, Emma is a former scientist, occasional contemporary dancer, avid reader and self-confessed cat lady (she has three). Emma lived in Leiden in the Netherlands as a baby and Leiden ought to have been her middle name had her mother thought of it at the time and not chosen Louise instead.
