What To Wear On Christmas Day: Your Festive Style, Sussed

Stuck for what to wear on Christmas Day? Don't worry, we've got you covered...

Whether your mum insists that you look your best, or you're more inclined to spend the day in your comfies, we've got your Christmas day style 100% sussed - with just a little bit of help from our favourite street stylers. 

This is your foolproof guide to killing it this festive season (even with the obligatory paper crown on). Here's what to wear on Christmas Day...

1. The Festive LRD
That's Little Red Dress (just FYI) - and what better excuse to wear one do you need than Christmas day? The festive colour instantly looks glam, and it'll match your Santa hat to an absolute T. It's chicest of Christmas Day outfits. What's not to love?! Pair it with rich burgundy or shimmering metallics for a very sleek spin. 

There are plenty of stunning red frocks to choose from but these three are up there with our upmost favourites this season. Choose a full-skirted or crop overlay style to disguise any turkey-bulge that might be hiding under there...

Shop: Lace mini dress, £100, Topshop; High-neck jersey dress, £149.45, Elizabeth & James at The Outnet; Pleated taffeta dress, £540, Victoria, Victoria Beckham

2. The Bell-Shaped Midi
Midi skirts have become just as much of a wardrobe staple as the leather biker and skinny jean - and rightly so. The super-flattering shape and demure length make it an outfit no-brainer when it comes to getting dressed up at Christmas.

Wear them with a fitted top, or a thin knit tucked in to really show off your waist. Oh, and if you're under 5 ft 5", we advise wearing a slight heel to help balance the full shape out.

3. The Oversized Coat
Whether you're dashing between houses or just taking a quiet stroll with the fam, you'll need a toasty coat to help you beat the harsh winter chill.

Make your Xmas journey (no matter how short) way more stylish with one of these oversized coats. The best part? They're roomy enough to wear over your chunky, and, let's face it, tacky, Christmas jumper. Bonus!

4. The Luxe Pyjama Set
If your kind of Christmas is more about chilling and relaxing, then you'll already know of the sweet allure of spending the entire day in your PJ's. Just make sure it's a sleek set. 

These PJ's are so chic that — should you REALLY want to — you could probably pair then with a set of heels and head to your local for a Christmas Day tipple. These girls did it, and we reckon they look p-r-e-tty cool...

Shop: Washed silk pyjama set, £495, Equipment; Pink embroidered jacquard pyjama top, £17, and bottoms, £17, River Island; Lila printed silk-satin pajama set, £350, Olivia von Halle

5. The Statement Suit
One of the biggest trends of the festive season has to be the luxe tux. The statement suit. The terrific two-piece.

Call it what you will but a matching tailored jacket and trouser look is all the rage and yep, you've guessed it, there are tonnes on offer on the high-street. What's more, they look great worn together AND apart, making this outfit a major investment. Go for stand-out prints and textures for even more sartorial impact...

Shop: Velvet jacket, £79.99, and trousers, £59.99, Zara; Palm jacquard print jacket, £249 and shorts, £169, Ted Baker; Neck tie suit jacket, £65, and tux trousers, £50, Topshop
