It’s that time of year again! The time when your summer body inflates back into its regular shape filled with carbs, sugar, and guilt-free saturated fat. And with the days getting shorter and the weather getting a little chiller, hiding in the dark under an over-sized sweater has never felt so satisfying. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. How do you wear those comfortable, over-sized clothes in a way that won’t inspire Aunty Jo to ask you when you’re due…again. Below are some tips on how to look fashionable in clothes you can actually eat in.
1. Peek-a-boo, I don’t see you
Turn heads in an off-the-shoulder top. Easy to dress up or down, this number will definitely be a tease at the dinner table. The best part about off-the-shoulder tops like these is that they drape over your body without looking frumpy. Pair with heels for that extra oomph.
2. Fit n’ Flared
A moment of the lips is a lifetime on the hips! Embrace it in a pair of palazzos. These flared pants were all the rage this summer, but can be easily transitioned into the fall. Pair with a fitted jacket and some dark lips for a more autumn look. Don’t worry ladies, there’s no need to unbutton anything in these pajama-like beauties.
3. Pretty in a pancho
This outfit screams sophisticated-city-girl. Not only is it a great way to layer up, this cape is versatile enough to wear in many different ways. Pair with a button up shirt, or wear with neutral colours for a sleek and elongated look.
4. A Maxi, Maybe?
Channel some serious boho-chic vibes in a maxi dress. Who says this head to toe ensemble is merely for hot, summer beach days? Opt for deeper hues and prepared to be showered in compliments as you float about at your mom’s house. It’s flowy, it’s airy — and allows you to hide your meat sweats.
5. Sweater Weather
You can never go wrong in a comfy sweater dress. It’s warm, it’s adaptable, and it’s effortless. Accessorize your sweater with a long necklace and some tall boots for the ultimate girl-next-door look.
That extra slice of pie has never tasted so good. Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving! Happy eating!
