5 Things To Wear On Christmas Day That Aren't Velvet

The Debrief: What to wear if you've inexplicably been told that jogging bottoms are not appropriate Christmas Day attire (they totally are, BTW...)

Some households enforce a strict tracksuit bottoms-only rule from Christmas Eve until 31st December. But what if you've suddenly found yourself in a dressing-up Christmas Day scenario this year? Whether the thought of wearing anything without a drawstring while you tackle the turkey is a total anathema or you just really hate velvet, here are a few ideas for Christmas Day dressing to get you started...
