Cosy up and chill out this Christmas
Christmas is a-coming, and along with the inevitable dress-up events comes, hopefully, the opportunity for some proper downtime, the chance to snuggle up in your favourite cosy clothes, light a candle or three, and curl up with a hot drink. And as luck would have it, cosy clothes in colours that lift the spirits are something we do rather well.
Making sure that even your most relaxed and cosy outfits are in your best colours means that even if unexpected visitors come knocking with an unexpected bottle of festive fizz, you'll be ready for hosting duties without needing to rush upstairs for an outfit change every time the door goes.
So how to start with an outfit that feels as good as pyjamas but looks as good as a party dress? Colour is the first step - if you don't know which colours make your eyes sparkle and your skin glow, then why not start with our hugely popular colour quiz? Once you know your seasonal palette, it's simply a case of putting together an outfit which combines all your best colours with Kettlewell's sumptuously soft basics, comfortable bottom halves and luxurious knitwear.
* Style notes*
Our Sienna Leggings are such a loungewear hero. As comfortable as pyjamas, but with a textured finish that elevates them beyond a basic, layering them up with a longline top and finishing off with cosy merino makes for a loungewear outfit to love.

For days when only the most relaxed fit will do but you still want to feel glamorous, our Ziggy Sweater is an absolute essential. Paired with blissfully comfortable Lauren Jersey Trousers, relaxing never looked so good.
