How to Be Trendy but Comfy on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time for mingling with family, catching up with old friends, and posing for pictures. Most of all, Thanksgiving is a time for eating — and you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone who disagrees with that. Since you’ll be getting your fill around lots of other people, we know you’ll want to make a statement — all while sneakily hiding your food baby.

Surprisingly, that’s an easy feat. All you need to do is follow the smart styling tips below…

A Flowy Cardigan and Stretchy Jeans

The loose cardigan is great for wrapping yourself up in after you’ve finished your dinner and don’t want anyone seeing the dreaded bloat. Pair it with a loose tank and some comfy jeans, and don’t forget to add your favorite accessories like a plaid scarf or a necklace!


A Cozy Sweater Dress

If you’re looking to get dressed up for your Thanksgiving meal, but still want maximum comfort, the sweater dress is the perfect combination of the two of these. The soft loose fabric will feel like a lifesaver after you eat, so go ahead and have that second plate! I might pair the dress with some over-the-knee boots and leggings to create a trendy and stylish ensemble.


The Classic Comfort Look

Are you more of a leggings and sweater girl?  This clothing couple are a match made in heaven, especially for Thanksgiving. A thick knit sweater will keep you warm all night long, while leggings will nicely conform to your growing belly. For some extra pizzazz, opt for faux leather leggings and dress it up with your favorite pair of boots!


If You’re into Plaid

It seems like plaid is always the print of choice once the colder weather finally hits, maybe because it’s perfect for layering…after all who doesn’t love a good plaid flannel? Wear your flannel over a comfy t-shirt or layer it under a vest for a cute and comfy Thanksgiving outfit. Top it off with accessories of your choice and maybe some faux denim leggings to keep you comfy post-dinner! If your item of choice isn’t a flannel, you can still incorporate the plaid with a warm blanket sweater or a cozy scarf!


For Lounging Around After Dinner

Once all the desserts are gone and you’ve decided the couch is the perfect hibernation spot for the next few hours, you might want to slip into something super relaxed and cozy. Try some cute p.j. pants and a soft white tank to slowly slip away into your food coma.
