Weekend Code: December isn't just about putting on the glitz

December isn’t just about putting on the glitz! The flip side of party season is long winter weekends spent cosied up indoors, and getting all wrapped up for Christmas family fun. Dress smart for stylish lounging whatever you’re up to this month, with our pick of the season’s comfiest casuals. Carolyn Moore reports.
