Fit for Feasting: Stretchy, Comfortable Clothes for Thanksgiving
November 19, 2016 | Filed in: Your Closet
‘Tis the season for multiple dessert helpings and food served with ladles, and we’re here to guide you through the buffet line in style. Below, food-friendly outfits for feasting comfortably in various Thanksgiving scenarios. (And yes, they pack beautifully, too.)
1. The Formal Dinner
Your in-laws do turkey in jackets and ties? No problem—you can chow down with the best-dressed of them. Our silk jersey Katerina dress and Walker top both feature tons of stretch and flattering wraparound ties (which you can loosen after dinner, of course).
2. The Big Family Gathering
Come one, come all seventeen cousins and their respective offspring (and whose dog is that, again?). You hope to look presentable for the meal and family photos, but between checking on the stuffing and tracking down the gravy boat—you know it must be somewhere—you barely have time to wipe the flour off your face (or is that cornstarch?). Try the ever-appropriate Emily dress, which has a looser fit through the waist and is machine washable in case of that inevitable gravy spill.
For a sleeker, sassier, but just as forgiving silhouette, try one of our jersey dresses, like the Casey or the Annabel; thanks to strategic ruching, they show your shape but won’t cling. If you’re looking for more versatility, you can’t go wrong with our jersey separates—the Soho skirt and Winfrey top are a tried-and-true combination.
