Embrace your Thanksgiving 'food baby' with comfy (but cute) clothing

Comfy chic clothes to wear on Thanksgiving Day (Photo: Kohl’s, Art: Yahoo Lifestyle photo-illustration)

Only five days left before we get to stuff our bellies with delicious, piping-hot turkey, creamy mashed potatoes and mouthwatering stuffing. With so much food to devour ahead of us, what on earth are we going to wear? Sweats aren’t exactly appropriate dinner attire, but if you don’t want to squeeze into a tight dress that you’ll regret later on, we’re here to guide you on what to wear.

The key is comfy chic loungewear. Think colorful sweaters, ponchos, and cozy sherpa jackets you can easily style with a skirt or pair of blue jeans and still look pulled together. It’s a look that will also be forgiving should your waistline expand a nudge too.

Below, we rounded up the comfiest attire you can wear on Thanksgiving and still look fashionable. Even better, many of these you can wear well past Turkey Day too.
