Top 5 Things To Do In London — and what to wear to them!
We have put together the top 5 things to do in London over Christmas and of course — what to wear to them!
Take a look below.
1. Harrods- Burberry Collaboration
This year Harrods brings us ‘A Very British Fairy-Tale.’ With an exclusive collection for the department store and domination of the infamous window displays, Burberry has officially taken over the Brompton Road landmark this Christmas. Depicting scenes of children on an adventure through an enchanting country house, the displays are as magical as ever.
What to wear?
The Burberry-Harrods collection, of course! (Available at www.harrods.com/brand/burberry/exclusive-festive-collection)
2. Festive Afternoon Tea at Browns
From chestnuts roasting on an open fire to traditional turkey, Christmas would not be the same without food. Look no further than Browns for a delightful festive afternoon tea. You can choose from the seasonal cocktail menu, brioche rolls, scones, and mini deserts ranging from salted caramel profiteroles to mini mince pies. There is no better way to celebrate the Christmas season than with friends and family in a beautiful setting, with delicious food. A truly memorable experience.
What to wear? The look is sophisticated-casual.

3. V&A ‘Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear’
When the weather outside is frightful, venture into the V&A for the ‘Undressed: A Brief History of Underwear’ exhibition. Showing until March 2017, the exhibition is a celebration of the female form and an ode to the technical craft of design. A Givenchy couture dress by Galliano is a fashion highlight but there is much to see and learn from this exhibition.
What to wear? A smart outfit with flats to get around the museum!

4. Somerset House ‘Hair By Sam McKnight’
When you take the annual trip to Somerset House to go ice-skating, perhaps consider a de-tour to the ‘Hair by Sam McKnight.’ exhibition. With a career spanning forty years, McKnight’s work is vast and diverse, making for an exciting show. The exhibition combines behind-the-scenes shots with editorial masterpieces and leaves the viewer wondering what he could do with her hair.
What to wear? Think fur!

Ted Baker, Avia Metallic Bow Leather Gloves (http://www.tedbaker.com/uk/Womens/Accessories/Gloves/AVIA-Metallic-bow-leather-gloves-Pale-Pink/p/129682-59-PALE-PINK)
Indulge in some Forties fashion whilst watching the film that caused The Brangelina Drama of 2016. Following Max Vatan (Brad Pitt) as he seeks to clear his wife’s name (Marion Cotillard) and preserve their marriage under the strain of war. The film is embellished with sharp tailoring and soft silks, created by the renowned designer Joanna Johnston. From the reviews so far, it seems to be both a cinematic and sartorial triumph.
What to wear? Wrap up in comfortable knitwear for a couple of cosy hours in the cinema.
