Make It A December To Remember: Christmas Rituals with Wear & Where

With a refreshingly laid-back approach to style, online magazine Wear & Where is an endless source of everyday inspiration. We caught up with editor Natasha for her top tips on making the most of the festive season.

Setting the mood...

"I have candles burning all year ‘round and switch them up according to the season. As of December 1st, I light Diptyque’s Baies or Pomander, SevenSeventeen’s Sparkle or Neom’s Christmas Wish to make the house smell gorgeously festive.

Decking the Halls...

"Were it entirely up to me, my home would be a mass of greenery, white lights and white/gold/glass ornaments, but I have to take account of the tastes of others (including an 8 and 4-year-old) so we also have splashes of red via kitsch ornaments. We’re currently house-hunting and the wish list genuinely features ‘is it a two-tree house?’ (One for me, one for them!)

This year's Christmas Party must-haves...

"Any chance of Michael Buble crooning at the piano? Failing that, a fabulous statement skirt (probably sequinned) dressed down with a sweater. Oh, and mini mince pies!"

Favourite family tradition...

"I am a total Christmas fiend and love all the traditions - from choosing the tree and decorating to a festive soundtrack (which must feature ‘White Christmas’ and ‘All I Want for Christmas…’), to the excitement of writing and leaving letters to Father Christmas (the elves leave tiny notes and a trail of glitter on the fireplace by way of reply), and going into London to see the Christmas lights. Magical. (Possibly less so: my husband’s campaign for us all to go for a Christmas Eve open air swim…)"

Festive tipple of choice...

Mulled wine. And champagne. (Not at the same time.)

Christmas Day just isn't the same without...

Starting the day with the children piling into our bed to open their stockings, and ending it eating cheese around the fire.

On my wishlist…

Finding our dream house! (Or a stack of books, a candle, a cosy jumper, and a Gucci GG belt would do me nicely...)

Summer style with Dress Like A Mum: Sweater x Short-Shorts

Dress Like A Mum x Ille De Cocos

(Dress Like A Mum, photographed by Jane Looker)

Inspired by Dress Like A Mum's effortless sweater x short-shorts look, we've put together three top tips for staying pose-worthy this summer, even if the sunshine goes MIA.

1. Colour Pops reign supreme

Stripe Sweater x Shorts outfit Inso

Whether in a solid or stripe, colour pops are magnetic - a must for summer in the city. Our candy striped sweater with warm coral is a modern take on a classic breton. In a relaxed silhouette, this sweater looks great loosely tucked-in at the front and worn loose at the back. Finely knitted in pure merino wool.

Wear it with:

White denim shorts and silver kicks - we love these silver foiled exclusive Converse from Office. Finish with a pair of sunset-tinted aviators - perpetual sunshine guaranteed through these babies.

2. Make a chic understatement...

Slogan Sweater x Shorts outfit inspo

Á la Dress Like A Mum sporting the Qui Moi Sweater, translation "Who, Me?". Chic, fun and versatile, this style can be worn as slim fit, or size-up for a more relaxed look.

Wear it with:

Flirty shorts like these broderie beauties in black, which add a touch of elegance and modernity to your daytime look. Show off your summer pedi with a slim pair of sandals in neon. We love these lady-like slides by Sophia Webster.

3. Cashmere is always a good idea

Cashmere Sweater x Shorts outfit inspo

In a beautifully soft, grey textured marl, this luxurious wardrobe essential is your every-weather sweater. In pure cashmere with a relaxed fit and a gentle, swing shape, this piece is designed to stand the test of time.

Wear it with:

Printed pool shorts and nude espadrille wedges. Elevate your look with Miu Miu pentagonal sunnies.
