What will you wear on Xmas Day?

Red dress for Xmas day



What will you be wearing for Xmas day. Will it be dressy or casual? Personally I like to wear a dress with some dressy earrings and flat shoes. Plus the essential apron/pinny to avoid splashes of turkey fat spoiling a nice dress.

Xmas day walk



After all that food you may well feel like a brisk walk to shake down all those calories. In which case a classic pea coat bright red sweater paired with jeans might be a good choice. A cosy beanie hat and sturdy boots are practical additions.

Casual wear for Xmas day


Later in the evening, depending on what time you eat your Xmas dinner you might fancy a change into a pair of pull on palazzo pants and a cosy cashmere sweater. The white Stan smiths can be replaced with warm house shoes or slippers.

    I’m undecided what to wear. We are going 250 miles south and the temperatures are supposed to be quite warm. I had planned on wearing a green velvet shirt and olive pants, but those will probably be too warm in the kitchen. Oh well, on to plan B.

    I try to choose something comfortable (normally trousers) that’s a bit glam . I will be playing with the grandchildren, so the outfit has to play many roles this year.
    Have a great Christmas

      Hi Laurie
      I agree with you when playing with grandchildren clothes need to be practical. We had a pre-Christmas dinner yesterday with a 5 yr old, 2yr old and 4month old before we head for France. I wore a pair of wide black trousers (washable) and a cream top (also washable) Christmas day with friends in France I will probably wear a dress.
