From that final Fruity to Christmas dinner with the Grandparents, Lydia Flack has got you covered.
Perhaps one of the only times us students ever really get to dress up. Your course Christmas Ball is your time to get glam, and what better way to do that than with this combo of satin and gold? Christmassy and classy, feel like a star as you sweep past your groupwork members who didn’t participate in a fur coat, a slinky dress and the highest of heels. With this look, you’re set for an evening of posh food and cheap wine. Dance the night away with my blessing.

Fruity is a club where any outfit goes, so why not finish the term with a splash? A big coat and an old pair of shoes to walk through campus with are essential, but that doesn‘t mean you can‘t have fun with the rest of your outfit. What we have here is, at its core, some jeans and a nice top, but layering up with some mesh adds that winter spirit without actually helping with the cold. Classic Leeds. Also, red is Christmassy.

Christmas Day with the Family
I’ve always found Christmas Day outfits hard to plan out. Striking the right balance between the casual attire needed to sit on a sofa opening presents and eating all day, and the formality which spending the day with your grandparent’s warrants is not an easy task. Patterned trousers are your friend, however. Pairing these check trousers with warm tones creates a cosy outfit with statement earrings for a touch of class. The boots were made for stomping, and for walking out in the cold if you’re the type to leave the house at Christmas.

New Year’s Eve
Picking a new year’s outfit can sometimes be a struggle, but here’s an outfit suited either for a night out or some low-key drinks with friends. Two options for shoes
allows you to embrace your more glamorous side or prepares you for a night sidestepping spilt drinks while still looking fabulous. A long skirt will make you feel like a princess going into 2019, and no true Leeds student would be without their own pair of tinted glasses. Perhaps advisable to wear a coat!
