The holiday season is filled with great music, time with family, presents, laughter, and FOOD! For my US readers, Thanksgiving is in a couple weeks and after that comes holiday parties and, of course, Christmas. These events are all filled with good eats and you’re bound to end up as stuffed as the turkey on your table (there’s no escaping it!). Being bloated is a feeling that even the best of us will experience, so today I’ve put together 3 outfits that are perfect for Thanksgiving and beyond because they’ll either hide that full stomach, or allow you to eat more of those delicious homemade desserts. 🙂 These outfits are comfy, without compromising the cute, and you can modify them to your own liking and personal style.
THE CASUAL (THANKSGIVING) LUNCH
If your Thanksgiving lunch is never too dressy, but you still want to show off that special style of yours, try an athleisure look. A pair of upgraded sweatpants with metallic hardware or a slit down the side is perfect, but make sure there’s an elastic waistband that’ll stretch with your stomach! A button-down or slouchy top tucked in increases the cute factor, especially if it’s an embroidered one. Here’s my take:
THE FORMAL (THANKSGIVING) DINNER
This second look is to inspire you all that are attending a formal dinner for the upcoming holidays. My advice is to go for a t-shirt or shift dress (anything else that’s loose works just as well) with a statement jacket. Anything from a bomber or leather jacket to a puffer or trench coat is great, and the more embellishments it has, the better it is! I chose a striped tank dress and my camel coat for this look:
At a Friendsgiving you could never go wrong with a pair of jeans, but sometimes those don’t allow you to have the all-you-can-eat buffet kinda night. Instead, opt for a skirt with a loose or elastic waistband and wear an over sized sweater on top. This creates a nice outfit pairing that, out of all the looks in this post, really hides that tummy! If there’s a chance you’ll be outside in the chillier weather for a while, bring a cardigan (preferably the warmest one you have) to throw on over your outfit.
There you have it, folks! My tips and tricks, along with some outfit inspiration, on how to beat the bloat throughout the holidays. Food is too good and too important to ignore, so I don’t blame anyone who rolls up to a Thanksgiving dinner or other holiday party with an elastic waistband or loose-fitting clothes.
