I chose a faux suede shift dress from George. Suede is the fabric of the season, and a shift dress is perfect for Christmas Day. No one wants something tight when you’re eating as many pigs in blankets as you possibly can, do you? I added a long sleeved top underneath to keep my arms warm, too.’

Before Christmas dinner is when I usually get dressed properly and stop being lazy! My usual get-up is a pretty dress, tights, boots and a festive jumper and accessories. This is exactly what I went for here with this grey knee-length dress with pretty lace detail, worn with the Robin jumper and little ankle boots.’

I knew I wanted something nice I could wear on Christmas day too, so this black jumpsuit from George did just the trick. Not my usual style or colour choice, but I wanted to try something new since it was so reasonably priced. I teamed it up with the faux fur waistcoat (again, out of my comfort zone but I love the ombre from grey into black).’

I’ll be entirely truthful with you. The first half of Christmas Day is probably spent in my pyjamas or onesie, because you can get away with lazing around in your PJ’s! Before dinner is served up, I’ll get dressed into something comfortable that’ll keep my inevitable food baby under wraps. This ‘60s paisley smock dress from George is actually the perfect disguise to keep that extra serving of roast potatoes hidden! I teamed it with these pull-on, knee high boots to add to the ‘60s vibes.’

Leigh has an unhealthy obsession with clothes. But she also quite likes writing about food, music, art and travel from time to time.

Whether dressing up in your glad rags is your thing or you like keeping it comfy in some woolly pyjamas, George at ASDA has some lovely bits in at the moment, like this knitted long-sleeve Fox dress.’

George at Asda have helped me on my way by sending me this gorgeous gold matte seguin shift dress (£25.00*) and it’s really helping to get me into the Christmassy swing of things! As with most sequinny clothing it’s such an easy piece to turn into an outfit as you can let it do all the talking and team it with simple accessories. If you don’t get cold as easily as me this would look super sexy without leggings, but my pins get chilly in no time so I popped on some simple black cropped leggings and plain chunky heeled courts.’

George at Asda challenged me to share with readers what they would most typically wear on Christmas Day! Now for me this totally depends on what we will be doing as a family on the day, but normally I will be in casual wear. I don’t treat it as an occasion I would dress up formally for and generally take a more relaxed approach to Christmas Day. So relaxed you could say that I would spend as long as possible in my onesie before getting changed for dinner. Here I’m wearing a cool (but comfortable) eyelet dress.’
