What to wear on Christmas Day?

I'd been thinking about what to wear on Christmas Day this year. My family always dress up as it is nice to have one fancy "family" day a year. Its been a tradition since I was little (I remember my Mum buying me a gorgeous red velvet dress with iridescent sleeves that dripped over my wrists, what can I say, haute couture since 1994 darling). So, because you kind readers are my muses, I thought you guys may help me out. Here are three different outfit ideas.
Dress: *Glamorous
Shoes: River Island
Watch: Radley
Ring: Antique
This first look is Christmas, bottled, concentrated and poured over a body con silhouette. It gorgeous and I love the colour- rose gold is at least 10 times better than plain gold, right? I paired it with my rose gold watch and rose gold cameo ring which are chunky and statement, but won't get lost amongst the dress. The shoes match with their rose gold studs but up the anti with the turquoise colour.
Dress: Vintage Frank Usher
Necklace: Vintage
Shoes: SoYouShoes
Ring: Vintage
Look two is 100% vintage until you get to the shoes. I received the dress (a vintage Frank Usher gown) from my Nan, who had it shortened for me. Its lovely and I feel completely sexy in it, but demure at the same time with the high neckline. I wanted to mix textures with the twisted metal necklace, which is also vintage, and feels very 20s with the length.
Dress: Red Herring
Shoes: *New Look
Belt: Glamorous
Midi Ring: Primark
Earrings: H&M
Look three is a beautiful pleated number with a modern twist on a baroque print. This time I'm pairing it with a gold belt, pearl earrings and a pretty gold midi ring. The colours of this dress feel completely festive and the shoes (real suede and leather- my babies) are as perfect for a sit down meal (I teetered around Somerset house in these and it was not fun!) as they are in themselves.
Finally, my friend, Adam, would like to add that for gentlemen, nothing says Christmas spirit better than a stylish novelty tie, waistcoat and stick on moustache. (I promised him if his tie cut the mustard at our Christmas meal, he could make the blog- so be nice ladies)

What are you wearing this festive season?
