If you haven’t planned out your noche buena outfit yet, don’t worry because I haven’t either. I’m torn between being comfortable and also somewhat dressed up. After scouring the Internet and my closet, I think one of the best options is a loose-fitting dress. First off, you’ll have so much space for the many servings of food you’ll have. Second, you’ll also have room to move around and even play with the tiny ones in your family. Lastly, you’ll look like you put a lot of effort into your look when in reality, you really just threw it on. If you like the sound of this, check out these options.
the___edit Vesper Long Sleeves Button Down Maxi Dress
For overall comfort, wear a loose-fitting maxi dress. This has snap buttons so it will be easy to put on take off at the end of the night. It also has long sleeves to keep you warm when it starts to get chilly. Complete the look with kitten heels or mules for extra comfort. Available on Zalora PH.
Stradivarius Printed Shirt Dress
The loose fit of this shirt dress will keep give your stomach optimal space for food. The print, on the other hand, will distract from any spills that might take place during the meal. Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. This is also a dressier option that will look great in photos. Available at Glorietta 2.
Neon Island Amelie Slip
Slip dresses can be both sexy and comfortable at the same time. This one has a draped neckline, colorful print, and side slit. No need to worry about your tummy being constricted since it has room in the midsection. This is also a good option if you want to stay tropical even during the holidays. Available online.
Mango Lace Dress
If your noche buena is more formal, i suggest a black lace dress that has a straight-cut design. You’ll be able to sit down comfortably and look chic at the same time. It also has an added detail of a bow closure at the back. Available at SM Megamall.
H&M V-neck Dress
Before the best meal of the year, I’m sure you want to play around with the little ones. Now, you won’t be able to do that if you can’t move around. This dress will allow you to run around, sit on the floor, and enjoy so much food with no problem. Available at Greenbelt 4.
