On the JJ Barnes Blog, I look at predictions from Boohoo about the top fashion trends this Christmas… and whether I’ll suit any of them!

Now is the ideal time to beat the Christmas shopping rush and start planning the perfect festive outfits to wear on repeat this winter! Now normally, I would prefer to spend all Christmas season in my pyjamas, stuffing my face with assorted cheese based products, and guzzling Prosecco. However, I know at some point I’ll need to emerge from my little nest and face the world.

So, whether its dazzling party dresses or tendy Winter fashions, Claire Asher from Boohoo has predicted this year’s hottest trends that will dominate the festive season.

Not just for the Strictly dancefloor, sequinned outfits are an essential wardrobe item as we approach party season, and, if you’re on the lookout, are guaranteed to get you noticed on the dance floor.

Runways from Valentino, Oscar de la Renta and more have been covered in sequins, so this Christmas, we can expect to see many dazzling sparkly dresses, tops and accessories. In the last three months, Google searches for ‘sequin dress’ have increased 185% in the UK, while searches for ‘sparkly dress’ have increased 300%. 

Don’t think sequinned clothing needs to be saved for special occasions and Christmas parties. Make every day a sparkly day with sequins and embellishments elevating any everyday look. For instance, sequinned accessories and handbags are perfect for adding more depth to everyday outfits. Or, of course, sequined dresses are the perfect glamourous occasion wear for Christmas parties.  


A major trend that has come about this year has been feathers! Searches for ‘feather dresses’ is up an amazing 733% in the last month alone, and the term ‘feather dress’ has received an average of 20,000 monthly Google searches in the UK. 

This Christmas season will be all about textures, prints and patterns, to add more depth to our fashion choices. From catwalks to high streets, feathers are popping up just about everywhere, including trouser hems, stilettos, blazer cuffs and multiple accessories. Feathers are the perfect fashion trend for those who prefer dressing in more neutral colours, as a way to spice up your looks without stepping too far outside your comfort zone.

Leather is a fashion trend sure to be big this Christmas, and is continuously one of the best investments you can make for your winter wardrobe. The term ‘leather jacket’ receives a huge 74,000 average monthly searches in the UK, ‘leather trousers’ receives 41,000 searches, and ‘leather blazer’ receives 19,000.

Many leather bottoms usually have a mid or high-waisted design, perfect for extra warmth needed to brace against the cold during the Christmas season. In the last three months alone, searches for ‘leather trousers’ have increased 250% in the UK. 

Faux leather trousers and leggings are definitely the popular choices, and more suited to vegetarian shoppers like myself, and effortless to style, providing a more elevated look when compared to jeans. Pair your trousers with an oversized cosy jumper and chunky boots for a casual Christmas day look, or with your favourite ‘going out’ top to head into town with friends for Christmas cocktails. 

Chunky Boots 

Just as many trends from the 90s have come back into style, (low-rise jeans, slip dresses aren’t my favourites…) but chunky boots are are definitely a Christmas wardrobe essential I can get on board with. Remain on trend whilst withstanding the harsh depths of winter! Currently, the term ‘chunky boots’ receives 29,000 monthly searches in the UK, and searches for ‘chunky ankle boots’ have risen 270% in the last month alone.

Whether you are wearing your boots with bare legs, jeans or a midi dress, chunky boots allow for endless styling options and also offer a fabulous and comfortable alternative to heels for Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties. Chunky boots will never really go out of style, but this winter season they place at the very top of our shopping list as a must-have, rather than just a basic staple. 

Statement Outerwear 

Whether it’s a trench coat or an aviator jacket, statement and oversized coats will always prevail year after year, and are always a simple way to spruce up your winter wardrobe. Consider using your outerwear to make the most of block colours, bold prints and fluffy faux furrs, all guaranteed to enhance any minimalist outfit. 

Searches for ‘aviator jacket’ have increased 180% in the last three months in the UK, while the term ‘trench coat’ receives 74,000 average monthly Google searches.

Extreme Knitwear 

Although it might seem like an obvious choice, extremely oversized knitted pieces will be a major hit as we head into Christmas, and perfect for me because my mother loves knitting!

The fantastic thing about a statement knitted jumper is that it is so easy to style. Simply throw it on with your favourite midi skirt, faux leather leggings or jeans to create effortless but fabulously balanced looks that will keep you warm this Christmas season.
