There isn’t much we can prepare in advance for Thanksgiving Day, which is why we want to at least get this stressful decision-making process out of the way well ahead of time. And by this, we mean our outfit for the day come night. It’s already irritating enough to be tied up all day slaving away in the kitchen (that’s right, cooking a Thanksgiving dinner does not only take an hour and a half), we at least want to look good while doing so.
That’s not too much to ask, right? Between chopping a gazillion vegetables, basting and stuffing the turkey whilst simultaneously trying to mix together all the ingredients for pecan and pumpkin pies, we’ve got our hands pretty damn full. Hence, we’re so curious to know what you’ll be wearing? Will you attend a fancy Thanksgiving hosted at your in-laws, or are you heading to a Friendsgiving hosted by your closest friends? Perhaps you’re off visiting your family for a reunion and will be cozied up in loungewear and pijamas all day! Lucky you if you fall into the latter category.
Dressing for this food-fuelled day requires some strategy, not only because you want to look the part and brandish your fashion sense, but also due to the full belly post-dinner which you’ll probably try to digest on a sofa nearby. One thing we’re all agreeing on is flowy, elastic waistbands and comfort above all!
