I don’t know about you, but when I think of Thanksgiving, fashion isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Turkey, gravy, stuffing, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts—that’s more like it. But, unless you happen to come from a family of nudists (and don’t plan on standing anywhere near a hot stove) you’ll probably need to wear something on the holiday.
Our recommendation? Comfort first, always. Plus a little polish to give your grandmother some reassurance that yes, indeed, you do have your shit together despite not having a husband/baby/mortgage quite yet. Denim is usually a good fallback (provided it has a little stretch), or you could take advantage of the pajama-dressing trend with a chic matching set. Oversized sweaters are a no-brainer for a day of feasting, and layering one over a turtleneck and wool culottes, or a plaid mini and opaque tights, ensures you’ll be chic and cozy right though till the tryptophan hits.
