Plus Size Picks: Christmas Day Three Ways

For my final plus size column of 2013, I'm turning my hand to dressing for Christmas Day. Obviously I know the truth. Most of us probably spend at least the first few hours of the day wearing pyjamas and a hangover. But there comes a point (lunchtime, at my house) where proper clothes are required. I say 'proper', we appear to have an annual dress code designed solely to humiliate (more of that below) but I know others face different issues. So whether you're dressing for dinner, visiting relatives or hunting for the naffest Christmas jumper going, here are three ways to get through the big day in comfort!

Obviously, I doubt anyone's going to spend £110 on a pair of ridiculous Christmas shoes, but the temptation to include them was just too much if only to show you they exist! If you're part of a family that goes all out when it comes to naff Christmas costuming (ahem, like mine) then this is the look to go for, combining comfort with plenty of cheese. Christmas is the one day of the year I absolutely advocate leggings-as-trousers (provided you're not leaving the house). For the record, this is a fair approximation of what I'll be wearing on 25th December, except my leggings have Santa on them (my shoes, sadly, don't).

There is one fashion 'thing' that should be banned on Christmas Day - tight waistbands! I may be in prom dresses and pencil skirts the rest of the year but this is the one day those tum-hugging styles are banned. If your festivities have a slightly more glamorous dress code, this ASOS Curve dress is a really fantastic option that's pretty without being uncomfortable. Yes, it's expensive, but this won't be the last time you wear it (as it's navy rather than black, it'll work for weddings too).

Finally, a look for those who're forced out and about to visit relatives or friends over Christmas. For this, warmth is a key factor and I'm obviously imagining you'll throw your Winter coat over the top of the look. The velvet skirt keeps things festive, while clashing spots and coloured tights add a touch of traditional Domestic Sluttery whimsy. Just add a Santa hat.
