Always jeans-maybe a sweater and sneakers. Never get dressed up unless going out to a venue that calls for it.

casual/comfortable (jeans, leggings, sweater)

once we reached our 50s, all itchy, tight, uncomfortable clothes literally went away - we're all about comfort now!

The adults dress casual - sweater or cardigan, trouser jeans or good denim, nice jewelry. We all dress our little ones up though!

Jeans and a sweater or yoga pants and a sweater for us.

My husband always dresses nice so that's a plus.

We always used to get dressed up to go to grandma's for holidays. I still get dressed up (skirt or dress pants and a nice top or sweater) when we go to other houses now, probably out of habit, but because I think of it as on occasion. We usually only see some of the people once or twice a year so it's special. DH's family however shows up to our house in their pajamas for Christmas dinner. It still just seems weird to me. They are our age(40's), not kids. I'm sure they're very comfortable but I can't bring myself to do it.

Depends on the occasion. We have dinner with my grandparents before midnight mass on Christmas Eve, and we usually dress up for that (dress and skirts for the girls, slacks and a sports coat for the guys). Everything else is casual. Thanksgiving and Christmas day are usually sweaters with jeans, khakis, slacks, etc. (Nice casual). For Mother's Day, game nights, things like that, anything goes.

I always tell the kids to put on something nice, so we can eventually take a good family photo, but that's not usually til the end of the day. Before then, it's usually pretty casual. Since I spend most of the day cooking, whatever Im wearing is usually covered up in an apron..lol

I remember one year, we were sitting down to eat and my mother looks at one of the twins and says "cant you at least put a shirt on?"...we all laughed and he got up to put a shirt on...lol

For holiday and birthday parties, it's usually dress slacks/button down shirts for the men and slacks/skirts and sweaters or a dressy top for the ladies. I have also seen nice jeans, but nothing like sweat pants or yoga pants. And no t-shirts unless it summer and we are having an outdoor picnic. Everyone is dressed comfortably, but it's obvious people have made an effort to look nice. The attire is definitely a step up from what you would wear at home lounging around.

This is pretty much how we approach dressing for family holiday dinners. If the occasion calls for my best table linens, china, crystal and silver, then we will dress up. If it is an informal get together then relaxed and informal gear is fine.

A bit of a contrast to my DH's family, where just getting some of the family to change out of pyjamas is a major concession.

Jeans and a nicer tshirt. I used to dress up, but the old fogies (who still dress up) keep it around 1,000 degrees. They're lucky I'm not in shorts

Casual, jeans, sweater, whatever we feel like wearing.


My in-laws barely change out of their pajamas.
