Update #8996 - 11.26 Shoppers swap party clothes for loungewear

Brits are said to have swapped party outfits for comfy clothes in the Christmas sales, as the Omicron variant forced the cancellation of Christmas parties.

Despite rising cases and the potential of another lockdown, retailers reported strong sales in December said the British Retail Consortium (BRC).

Helen Dickinson, CEO of the BRC said: "Despite the recent Omicron outbreak, retail sales held up through December.

"Many people chose to shop online rather than travel to nearby high streets and shopping centres. Loungewear was back in fashion, as many pre-empted the possibility of future restrictions. Meanwhile, the return of work-from-home advice and reduction in Christmas social events, caused formalwear sales to slow.

"In the face of rising case numbers and supply chain issues, people in retail pulled out all the stops to ensure everyone got what they wanted this Christmas."
