As Thanksgiving quickly approaches and we all gear up for the biggest feast (and subsequent food coma) of the year, it can be very tempting to live in leggings, sweatshirts, and Uggs for Thanksgiving break. I mean, why not? They're warm, comfy, and will give you plenty of room for the food baby that you will eventually birth. But if you are having a Thanksgiving celebration with any dignity, then you may want to reconsider your outfit choices. Here are some looks that will be chic, polished, and totally comfortable for lounging around on your temporarily-fatter ass.
1. For a more casual dinner, try boyfriend jeans:
The boyfriend jean is a wonderful staple and perfect for Thanksgiving. Without the constriction of the skinny, the boyfriend still looks cool and are super cozy. Make them a bit more polished and embraced their menswear appeal with a great button-down and loafers- a chunky sweater finishes the look and keeps you warm cozy!
2. For a classier occasion, try a pair of silk or velvet drawstring pants:
As comfy as pajamas, these pants are definitely cool and relaxed. The luxe silk or velvet will add the needed sophistication to these pants, while a chunky sweater and fur vest play off this boudoir theme while still looking polished. Your go-to booties and statement necklace make it dining-room appropriate, and a great lipstick or gloss keeps you from looking like you're going straight to bed after dinner.
3. For the maximal combination of ease and class, try a sweater dress:
Sweater dresses are the PERFECT Thanksgiving piece. I discovered this a few years ago, when I threw on a sweater dress with plenty of tummy room, coziness, and instant-chic appeal. A pair of tights makes it more winter appropriate, while booties keep the look more fashion-forward. Add on a cute scarf and moto jacket for a little bit of edge.
