Do you get dressed up in your finery or are you a jeans / jumper / comfort kind of house ?

I always struggle to decide what to put on. I have two hairy hounds and whatever I wear gets covered in fur as I sit on the floor with them at my parents house. But my Dad once said that my Mum goes to a lot of trouble for Christmas and that we should dress up for dinner which makes me feel bad if im in a jumper.

Its a difficult balancing act.

Also, my parents house is soooooo hot. I live in an old property with open fires and a dog flap so we always have a little fresh air circulating. But they turn on the heating all day and seal the place up ... and I cant breathe !!!

I think this year I will wear my leggings and a dress which is fairly roomy for stomach growth. Although the dress has sleeves its not too warm and its also old so I don't mind it being ruined by the dogs.

A Principles dress with leggings. I'll also wear the boots my parents got me for Xmas when I travel there. I've also got a grey dress with sequins dotted around on it which is quite nice for Xmas Eve. I'm not going all out finery like you wear at a wedding but I have saved my best casual clothes to wear at Xmas.

Probably the new red dress I bought. I want to find either a slightly baggy vest or a dress that floats out a bit under the chest cus I get that bloated, full up feeling after christmas dinner lol. Need a bit of space to breathe so maybe not a fitted dress.
Lots of relatives come to the house dressed up,so I need to wear something not-so casual.

Whatever is clean, I don't dress differently on Christmas to any other day.

Normally my christmas jumper with leggings or jeans. Its not really a formal thing in my house and everyone just dresses for maximum comfort to fit all that food in.

This year we're going out for a meal though so im having to dress up a little. I have a grey sequin jumper dress that I'm going to wear with leggings boots i think.

That sounds lovely. I have a thing about jumper dresses this winter. I bought one from ASOS a couple of weeks ago which is a really dark luxurious blue colour and very heavy and cable knit. It is off the shoulder and looks great with jeans / leggings. But although I bought it for Christmas Day I will look like a yeti by the end of the day with the dogs plus I have a suspicion I will be too hot.

I think it will be a 'going to the pub' jumper

I'll be wearing my finest maternity wear

(leggings, boots and stretchy top - am 8 months pregnant, that is considered an effort!!)

Normally though I will wear a dress, heels and a little make-up!

Me too. If I were going to someone else's place then yes I'd probably dress a little smarter but seeing as I'm at home, nah can't be arsed.

I've got a sparkly top which I'll wear with leggings and boots. It's Christmas, it's nice to make an effort - but comfort is essential!!

I am going to someone elses, I will probably end up in a dress simply because I usually wear them anyway. If we were home I probably wouldn't get dressed unless someone made me!

Long floral summer dress, most probably. Silver hoop earrings and a bit of makeup.

Black knitted jumper with sparkles on it, and black & white Christmassy leggings. I get cold really easily and I'm also in a really low place in my head, so I want to just feel all warm and cosy.

No point in me getting all dressed up in a nice warm winter dress and heels - I'm a bloke.

Think I'll stick with blue jeans, a t shirt and winter jumper. OH! And underwear and socks, black shoes.

It has to be red dress, black tights and boots - the Santa look!

Don't go down any chimneys, you'll get soot all over you.
