How To Dress For Thanksgiving Day

Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that is all about relaxing with family and friends, and of course, stuffing your face with enormous amounts of food.  Even though it's a holiday where in general everyone is lazy and hanging at home, dressing the part is just as important on that day; especially if attending turkey day festivities. Here are a few tips on how to dress for Thanksgiving without sacrificing comfort.

1. Dress comfortably. There's a lot of sitting around on Thanksgiving as well as a lot of eating. And, don't forget that there's usually children running around that you can play with. Dressing comfortably is one way to help your day stay enjoyable. Opt for elastic waistbands, shift dresses, or knit clothing. Dressing in stylishly loose sweaters or pants with some stretch can also help.

2. Adorn yourself in medium to dark colors. You don't have to dress like you're going to a funeral, but wearing darker colors will help with any food that may happen to find it's way onto your outfit. Cranberry sauce, wine, and chocolate are the usual suspects, but you must not forget about gravy, sweet potatoes, and  pie! Browns, crimson reds, and deep oranges are colors that may help you fight of those unwanted messes.

3. Stay cozy. After dinner walks are the norm around the holidays. After all, it is one of the best ways to digest your food and not make you feel so bloated. Layering is a great way to stay warm while working off the food you just consumed. You can wear sweaters over long sleeve button ups with cozy jackets. Keep your paws warm with mittens and your head snug with a hat, and don't forget to wear shoes your can walk in!

4. Add a festive touch. If you've opted to be super comfortable on Thanksgiving day, spice up your outfit with a festive embellishment. This can be anything from a broach, to a headband, or even a piece of jewelry. Stick with a general autumn theme if you are not one for blatantly obvious holiday accessories.
