What to wear on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a tricky holiday for clothes. Of course we want to look fabulous, but comfort is important too---after all, we're feasting! There have been years when I literally had to unbutton my pants because I ate too much! So to avoid feeling like stuffed turkey, I choose clothes that will accommodate second helpings and dessert.

Here are some comfy Thanksgiving outfit ideas that will give you breathing room!

These waxed black jeans by DL are incredibly stretchy..they feel like leggings. I added a black tank (column dressing is slimming!) and topped things off wit a  fringe cardigan (any long cardigan will do). A long pearl necklace (similar), black wedges and a patent leather bag (old--this one is $17.48!) dress things up a bit.

I'm addicted to sweater dresses in the cold weather. They're cozy, cute and so comfortable. A dress is one of my favorite things to wear when I eat a big meal! This one is from Aventura. Here are some other ideas too, HERE and HERE.

If your Thanksgiving dinner is on the casual side, jeans can be comfy as long as they have a ton of stretch. Add a chunky sweater, fun necklace (love this one and just $25!) and suede pumps for a more polished denim look.

Elastic waist is the ultimate in comfort next to pj's--especially after eating a big meal! Here I've paired these Coolibar ponte elastic waist knit pants (which are actually like thick leggings) with their fabulous cowl neck sweater and suede boots (love these!). But you could also substitute the sweater for a tunic, heels and a little bling for a dressier outfit!

Throw on a cape!

A cape looks great thrown over a dress, jeans, or even leggings. Not only is it comfy and chic, but it's a  great way to cover up when you're feeling especially full--to be blunt, it hides the muffin top. Similar HERE.

Or choose a cashmere topper in a gorgeous color! This one is from Purple Poppy.

 So eat, drink, be merry--but be comfortable! Have a fabulous Thanksgiving!
