Wearing pants on Thanksgiving is an awful decision. Even worse than regular pants- tight pants. I didn’t make this fatal mistake last year, but I did make one of almost equal disaster. I picked out a skirt with a tight waist. It looked cute, but I did not feel cute by the end of the night.
Let’s be real. Overeating and Thanksgiving go hand and hand, there’s no way to avoid it. You can, however avoid feeling the tight restriction of a non elastic waist band. That’s why the absolutely best thing you can do for yourself this Thanksgiving is buy a shift dress. These dresses are perfect for events where you binge on lots of delicious foods that leave you with a watermelon sized bloated belly. Since there is no waist, you won’t have as much of a problem. No waist, no problem! Although shift dresses are perfect for eating, they are not always the best looking. Some are cute, but some may end up leaving you looking like you’re wearing a pillow case. This is the problem that I run into again and again. If you remember all the way back to the end of the Summer, you might remember a shift dress that I talked about in my August Lookbook. This dress is adorable in every way shape and form, except for the fact that it makes me look extremely boxy. To fix this, I normally pair it with a belt. Problem solved.When I was deciding what to wear this Thanksgiving my eyes landed on this dress. It’s cute, has no waist, and is very festive. Paired with a belt, scarf, and a pair of boots it quickly became clear that this was going to be my 2016 Thanksgiving outfit.
Since I was pairing it with a belt, instead of wearing something with a waist, I could control how tight and how loose it was. If you have to choose something with a waist or belt, choose belt. Or if you can just go with a straight up shift dress, that is the 100% best way to go. Now that you know what to wear, go eat a lot of Thanksgiving food in style.
