What to Wear to a Christmas Market 



Is it even Christmas without attending a Christmas Market? All over the world, people embrace the magic of Christmas markets – and us here at Joe Browns are no different. We’re all about remarkable fashion, so with the release of our new Winter 2023 lines, we think it’s time to take you on a journey.  

 

Here’s the guide on what to wear to Christmas markets, inspired by Christmas Markets from around Europe.  




Outfit 1: London-Inspired Christmas Market 


SELECT TO SHOP KATIE KNITTED JERSEY DRESS [WE871]
SELECT TO SHOP SENSATIONAL STYLISH COAT [JA659]


Capture the spirit of London during the festive season by dressing for timeless elegance. This city’s rich history and sophisticated street style sets the stage for a memorable Christmas market experience. So, here’s a breakdown of what to wear to make the most of your visit.  




Women’s Outfit Inspiration 


SELECT TO SHOP COSY CABLE JUMPER DRESS [WK689]
SELECT TO SHOP PERFECTLY MONO COAT [WJ601]


The Coat: A classic longline, well-tailored coat is a London fashion staple, and it’s perfect for both style and warmth. Either keep it monochrome with a classic print, such as houndstooth, or alternatively, opt for a deep berry or green colour that complements the festive season. 

The Outfit: We love the chic look of a sweater dress. Choose one with a block colour or classic knit pattern, such as cable knit. This really adds a touch of classic London flair. 

The Shoes: Knee high boots are a must if you’re wearing a sweater dress, or ankle boots if your dress is on the longer side. Whether you prefer flat or heeled, they’re an essential accessory for a London-inspired look. 

Accessorise: Complete your outfit with a peaked hat or baker boy hat and stylish scarf. Also, don’t forget to add some festive sparkle with a touch of statement jewellery or a classic brooch.

Men’s Outfit Inspiration 


SELECT TO SHOP SENSATIONAL STYLISH COAT [JA659]
SELECT TO SHOP DAPPER DOUBLE BREASTED COAT [JA679]


The Coat: A well-tailored pea coat simply exudes London sophistication. Choose a charcoal grey to embrace this city’s traditional style.  

The Outfit: We love a crisp white shirt – every man should have one in his wardrobe. If you prefer to add a little flair, why not make it a double or even triple collar shirt? These instantly inject some style and dimension into your outfit and show your appreciation for the finer – and the fun – things in life.  Pair your shirt with a pair of well-tailored pants, corduroy trousers or smart, dark jeans. 

The Shoes: Try a classic Chelsea boot or brogues to keep things on the timeless side – no London-inspired look is complete without a pair, trust us. 

Accessories: Add a simple scarf to protect you against the cold – you can really inject some colour and personality into your outfit here, so choose wisely!

Outfit 2: Prague-Inspired Christmas Market 


SELECT TO SHOP MARVELLOUS MILITARY COAT [JA619]
SELECT TO SHOP TELL ALL FAUX FUR WRAP


Prague is renowned for its fairytale charm, and its Christmas market is no exception. With historic architecture, cobblestone streets and an enchanting atmosphere, dressing the part is essential to fully immerse yourself in the experience. Here’s what to wear to Prague’s Christmas market this year. 




Women’s Outfit Inspiration: 


SELECT TO SHOP WRAPPED IN LUXURY FAUX FUR TRIM WRAP [HB377]
SELECT TO SHOP AFTER DARK BOW TRIM BERET [HB387]


The Dress: Velvet, velour and devore dresses have landed in abundance in Joe Browns, so it’s no surprise that these will bring all the fairytale vibes with a romantic twist. We love deep jewel tones like emerald and ruby to really heighten the glamour here.  

The Wrap: Add a touch of elegance to your ensemble with a faux fur stole or wrap. Exuding historic, old world charm, it provides extra warmth and a whole lot of opulence.  

Accessories: We cannot stress this enough – when it comes to accessories, anything embroidered is the peak of a Prague-inspired outfit. Embroidered bags, headbands, gloves – anything you can find that’s embroidered will seriously elevate your outfit.  

The Shoes: We love ankle boots for this look. If they’re embroidered – even better! They’re comfortable, fashionable and perfect for navigating Prague’s cobbled, winding streets.

Men’s Outfit Inspiration: 


SELECT TO SHOP MARVELLOUS MILITARY COAT [JA619]
SELECT TO SHOP ALL TO ORDER COAT [JA599]


The Coat: Stay warm and dapper with a nicely tailored overcoat. Dark, earthy tones like brown of deep green complement Prague’s ambience.  

The Outfit: A pair of well-fitting trousers are great, but the most important part of your outfit is the classic knit sweater. Opting for a cosy knit in a classic Nordic pattern like a fair isle jumper is practical and stylish.  

The Shoes: A simple suede or leather boot works wonders with this outfit. They’re timeless, smart and super easy to pair with any jeans or trousers. Bonus points if you roll them up at the cuff. 

Accessories: A nice woolly hat and scarf can keep you nice and toasty, however we recommend leather gloves for that refined Prague-inspired look.

Outfit 3: Berlin-Inspired Christmas Market 


SELECT TO SHOP THE FOREVER BLACK LEATHER JACKET [WL053]
SELECT TO SHOP THE HIGH LIFE LEATHER JACKET [ML099]


Berlin is arguably Europe's urban capital, boasting super cool, edgy vibes on every street corner. In Berlin, individuality is celebrated, and you’ll find people expressing themselves through fashion. From streetwear, vintage finds and modern design, Berlin’s Christmas market is the place to flaunt your unique style and personality to truly enjoy those urban vibes. 




Women’s Outfit Inspiration 


SELECT TO SHOP THE SENSATIONAL SUEDE JACKET [WL060]
SELECT TO SHOP JOE'S FAVOURITE LEATHER BIKER JACKET [WL056]


A Funky Leather Jacket: Capture Berlin’s unique urban spirit with a women’s leather jacket. We prefer a bold colour and unique details for Berlin’s urban vibes – but black works just as well.  

Graphic Print Sweater: Embrace Berlin’s artistic vibes with a graphic print sweater – we love retro designs and pop culture for a stand-out look that’ll turn some heads.  

Skinny Jeans: To carry that punky urban look through, we love a dark pair of skinny jeans for some added edge that’ll keep you comfortable and snug all day long.  

Chunky Scarf: Add a thick scarf to keep warm while elevating the ensemble’s silhouette – this perfectly captures Berlin’s unique urban style while keeping you toasty and warm.

The Biker Jacket: A black or brown biker jacket is an iconic piece every man needs in his wardrobe. It’s the perfect piece that gives plenty of Berlin-inspired edge and matches the city’s urban vibe.  

A Band Tee: Show your appreciation for Berlin’s music scene with a band or music-themed graphic tee. 

Slim Fit Jeans: Choose slim-fit men’s jeans to maintain that sleek, urban look.  

Shoes: Decide between high-top trainers or biker boots depending on how edgy you want to look. We love high-tops for a more casual, street-style vibe.  

The Hat: We love a simple beanie hat to keep warm while adding to the streetwise look we want to create.

SELECT TO SHOP ROCK CHECK TUNIC [WG003]


In Edinburgh, history and fashion are celebrated during the holiday season. This Christmas market is a true testament to the city’s heritage – so it only makes sense that our outfits reflect this to really appreciate Edinburgh’s history and culture.  




Women’s Outfit Inspiration:

SELECT TO SHOP FANTASTIC FUR TRIM COAT [WJ600]


A Woolen Coat: Keep warm and stylish with a classic woollen coat in a deep, traditional colour like chocolate, black or navy blue.  

Sweater Dress, Pinafore or Tunic: We love keeping the main part of the outfit to tartan, so be sure to check out our tartan pieces that really showcase unique style while reflecting on a rich part of Edinburgh’s heritage.  

Knee-High Boots: Stay comfortable and sophisticated with knee-high boots, but try to keep the heel flat so they’re perfect for navigating Edinburgh’s cobblestone streets.  

Vintage Brooch: Add a touch of history and celebrate Edinburgh’s rich vintage culture by adding a vintage (or vintage-inspired) brooch to your outfit to really set it apart from the rest.  

Embroidered Woolly Accessories: Add a scarf, hat or pair of mitts with some gentle floral embroidery to keep you toasty and sophisticated as you navigate Edinburgh’s Christmas market. Who said style has to be compromised when it comes to comfort? Not us!

Herringbone or Tweed Jacket: Choose a jacket that reflects Edinburgh’s heritage and timeless style. Alternatively, a pea coat or short military coat works just as well for some structure and class.  

Cashmere Polo: Edinburgh’s renowned for its superior-quality cashmere, so choose a cashmere (or alpaca-blend) knit that’s soft to the touch and seriously snug.  

Woollen Trousers: Nothing says snug like a pair of woollen trousers – but if wool isn’t your thing, corduroy also works effortlessly to create an outfit packed with style.  

The Accessory: Give a nod to Edinburgh’s heritage with a lapel pin – you can also go crazy with the pins' design, as Edinburgh isn’t one to turn their nose up at a bit of playful fun when it comes to style!
