Glamorous Gifting for Christmas

The magic of Christmas is spreading throughout Oxford, and finding that perfect gift has never been easier thanks to the Clarendon Centre’s top stores!

Clarendon’s fashion retailers have party wear and tons of statement styles that are sure to make the lucky recipient feel like a million dollars this Christmas. Think sequins, tassels, metallic materials and bold prints and fabrics, the more that are combined together, the better!

For her, we suggest this stunning silver shimmer dress from H&M with glitzy heels from GAP Outlet, and for him, a designer shirt from TK Maxx. The one key rule for festive fashion is that there’s no such thing as over-the-top outfits!
