The Ideal Outfit for Unintentional Overeating
Pulling together the perfect holiday cozy, chic holiday get-up that slays from charcuterie casual convos to post desert food baby belly takes a bit of forethought. Sure, we all plan to practice some self-discipline and not fill up on seconds, but with a comfort food cornucopia at our finger tips, it is damn near impossible to not overeat. And we've all been the gal who threw on her favorite pair of jeans for old times sake, but I beg of you PUT DOWN THE DENIM! There is a place and time for the good ole' stand-by, but never on Thanksgiving. Don't be the sad sap that has to unbutton your fly just to breathe. There are plenty of comfortable options to keep you classy and cozy this Turkey day. We put together a few no-fail outfits to get you through the candid family snapshots and gratitude gala without the discomfort of shrinking ensemble.
Sweater Slip Combo
Slinky sexy meets sophisticated. This pairing is a solid number to get you through the Thanksgiving grind. Mixes well with a glass of wine or cocktail of your choice. Find a slip with a slightly oversized fit for added wiggle room and comfort. We love pairing John Patrick Organic slips (here, here, and here) with snuggly staple sweaters like Giada Forte's rib knit cashmere or Humanoid's mock neck flannel.
Pajamas aren't what they used to be. Elevated loungewear can be dressed up to fit many a fancy occasion. Simply swipe on a red lip and some practical statement shoes and you've got the perfect blend of laid back street style star meets rugrat wrangling gravy stirring ultra cozy cool auntie. Try Raquel Allegra's henley frock or Ace & Jig's April dress for an easy one piece outfit ideal for holiday chaos and comfort.
A-line Pleats + Side Slit Tunic
Pass the pleats please! Rock some architectural lines this Turkey day with a sartorial a-line pleated skirt and side split tunic. Use the power of the fashion golden ratio by pairing a long tunic and ankle flashing skirt while keeping classy in a figuring flattering ensemble even after a second serving of pumpkin pie. Try Black Crane's Side Split tunics (here and here) on top with our Cory graffiti skirt or Giada Forte's navy pleats on bottom.
Silk Henley + Cropped Trouser
While we love all cropped trousers, when it comes to Thanksgiving garb elastic waists are vital! Mix soft sumptuous fabrics like cotton gauze and silk for ultimate holiday chow down comfort with elegant flare. For silky henleys, try Giada Forte's Habotai top or Raquel Allegra's hand dyed blouses (here and here). Pair with Ace&Jig, Giada Forte, or Raquel Allegra elastic waist cropped trousers for optimal Thanksgiving threads.
Feminine Blouse + Culottes
Embrace your inner culotte queen this gratitude day. Another solid Thanksgiving staple thanks to its elevated ease and expandable waist. Pair with a flouncy, feminine top to keep your holiday ensemble extra classy. Mix Apiece Apart or Black Crane culottes (here and here) with an Ulla Johnson feminine blouse (here, here, and here), Raquel Allegra gauze top, or lace statement shirts (here and here) for a holiday outfit Hail Mary touchdown.
