Thanksgiving is truly a great holiday. I enjoy announcing aloud things I am thankful for (#blessed). I love the game of Scattergories my family partakes in after dinner. I'm also a fan of food.
The thing is, Thanksgiving always presents a fashion conundrum: part of me wants to look chic and so put together that my cousins are in awe of my "city girl fashions" and my aunt is semi-perplexed by what I am wearing. But a larger part of me (no pun intended) knows I am a fan of food, and will be eating, eating and eating.
The Centerpiece: Leather sweatpants.
Why? Because leather belongs everywhere. And it's an easy way to differentiate from your "sleeping sweatpants."
Pair With These Sides: A sassy sweatshirt and not-so-basic black pumps.
The Centerpiece: Harem sweatpants.
Why? We aren't talking MC Hammer here. But a little drop-crotch pant can make a big statement and add dimension to an otherwise frumpy pair of sweats.
Pair With These Sides: Sparkles and booties.
The Centerpiece: The standard sweatpants.
Why? Because you're going to be really glad you're wearing them after that second plate.
Pair With These Sides: Fur (faux, natch) and a pump adorned with lace-up details.
