What-to-Wear: Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving holiday, make an effort to be both comfortable and chic by wearing something that's stylish, but not restrictive. You want to be able to travel and eat with ease, as well as be cozy for any time spent simply relaxing with family. 

Be Stylish by choosing luxe fabrics like lace or leather that make ordinary items appear more sophisticated. Play up your accessories by wearing statement necklaces, chunky bracelets or a standout handbag, while keeping the rest of your outfit simple and classic.

Be Comfy by opting for soft sweaters that fit your frame, but have some give. Wear skirts or dresses that are forgiving in the mid-section so that you don't feel uncomfortable if your belly swells slightly after you eat (just don't overeat. I'll be talking about ways to avoid that later this week--check back!). If you're not comfortable in heels, wear something like a riding boot, or a pair of embellished flats that will still make your look neat and polished.

If you will be cooking, cleaning or hosting I understand the need for practicality. But why not consider changing when your guests arrive or when it's time for dinner? You'll be grateful that you look amazing, as well as feel refreshed and ready to join the party.
