The two things I love most about fall are the food and the fashion, which means Thanksgiving is a major jackpot. I get to dress up all cute and stuff my face with turkey. It’s wonderful…for the first ten minutes. Then my stomach begins to protrude over my skintight mini and I start having a hard time breathing. Undoubtedly I end up taking an intermission, putting on my stretchy sweatpants, then heading back for seconds.
But it doesn’t have to be that way. It’s possible to look cute and eat until you’re curled up on the couch in a food coma. You just have to choose your outfit wisely. I’ve combed through this season’s hottest trends and built outfits that are holiday appropriate, both in how they look and how they stretch to fit the 5 lbs of stuffing you will inevitably inhale. And I’m sure enjoying Thanksgiving dinner without the need to unbutton your pants at the table is something we can all be thankful for this year.
Leggings are not only comfortable (hello, elastic waistband!), but they are easy to dress up for a holiday meal. Skip the jeans this year and pair some basic leggings with a super cute, super trendy long cardigan. The stretchy pants will give you room to pack in all the pumpkin pie your heart desires, and – bonus! – the sweater will give you just a little more coverage over that protruding belly.
