Thanksgiving Friendly Outfits

Thanksgiving Friendly Outfits

Thanksgiving Friendly Outfits by elbonner featuring knit sweaters

Thanksgiving and gluttony go hand-in-hand which means your cute new jeans and horizontally-striped sweater might feel like a clingy, cotton-blended prison once all that rich food has been stuffed in your gob.  The answer to the age old question"what outfit can I get away with that's as comfortable as pajamas, but better looking than a prison jumpsuit?". The answer are structured leggings, flowy tops, and chunky sweaters. ALL of these things are on trend and always look chic if paired correctly. Just remember, the rule is if you're wearing just plain stretchy leggings, your top needs to go over your butt/crutch or else you will look like you've forgotten to wear pants. With structured leggings (ones that look like real pants) you can get away with basically wearing stretch pants and still looking good. Structured leggings are called that because they have details that make them more than just stretchy pants: zippers, paneling, rivets, and even prints can keep you from looking like an uncoordinated ballet teacher and the outfits above show how leggings can look holiday appropriate. So go ahead, have another slice of pie, you've got the room!
