What do you wear on Christmas Day?

(52 Posts)

Just that really - our Christmas is generally casual but I like to dress up a little more than usual whilst leaving enough room for a giant dinner

Please can I steal your ideas?

Usually a tunic and leggings type ensemble to allow for the meal.
I wore a silk dress once and splashed gravy down it, never again

This year I'm wearing my favourite jumpsuit that the top part is Lprint and bottom is creped black. I am loving the new patterns about though so might treat myself to something new.

I've got a black/gold Christmas jumper (with gold bead reindeer) and some black/gold leggings. for this year.

Just got to think what to put on my feet now ?

We don't leave the house and it's just us and the kids, but I either wear a nice dress or something like a sparkly top with my jeans or whatever. Dh has always cooked Christmas dinner so I don't have to worry about kitchen disasters on my outfitgrin

I will be wearing a dark red velvet 40's style dress with seamed tights, heels and my new leopard print fur coat when we go visiting!

Loving the sound of the black/gold reindeer jumper 70isa!

This year I'll be wearing one of the fabulously tacky Primark Christmas jumpers. mine is bright red with a giant Christmas pudding on it. I got one for each of the kids too with Reindeer on them - dh was being grumpy and refused but he might find one in his stocking wink

I'll probably dress it up a bit with some coated black skinny jeans

Not thought about ityet. God I am so disorganised this year. Usually a lovely dress, shift type thing so not to show the bloat!

Did you get the jumpers this year sweetheart? I need a Christmas jumper for a wedding on 22nd December - the tackier the better.

sweetheart Wed 21-Nov-12 14:49:01

Yes Primark is bursting with them this year. They seem to have childrens and mens but no womens - I brought an age 12-13 childs jumper for myself but I'm guessing a small mans would have fit too. They are all really bright colours.

Brilliant, thank you!

Tesco have a christmas pudding jumper here

Smart casual as I'm the cook.

I'm not sure yet, but it will involve a bit of sparkle, and probably some festive earrings too.

DH is totally bemused by the whole dressing-up-at-Christmas thing. His family just slob out in trackies.

Summer dress as it will be sunny and warm (it better be).

ENormaSnob Thu 22-Nov-12 19:41:35

Bunny, your outfit sounds amazing.

I will be in maternity clothes this year.

BunnyLebowski I want to be you when I grow up.

Meggles76 Fri 23-Nov-12 06:50:55

We are away for xmas this year. I think I will take lace LBD with opaques and heels and some statement earrings.

Usually a knitted dress - comfortable and a little more dressy than normal - I am partial to an apron though, may request a poncy Toast version this Christmas - normally wear a bar tender style butchers style.
