Christmas dinner — or any holiday dinner — with family and friends requires you to step up your game. You don't want to be the one wearing your sweatpants to the table, especially when the picture-taking begins. Lest you come to regret your holiday dinner look, we've come up with one no-fail outfit. Look for a ladylike full skirt (which is always flattering in photos!), then add a bit of festive sparkle with an embellished sweater and a pair of jeweled earrings. As for the footwear, you could slip into flats, but since you'll be sitting and don't have to worry about being comfortable, why not opt for your favorite pumps? If need be, throw on a pair of tights to stay warm, pull up a chair, and try to play it cool when the compliments start rolling in.
