Grandma-Appropriate, Not-Too-Tight Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas That Are Still Cute

Thanksgiving is a notoriously hard holiday to dress for because it requires sitting at a dinner table for hours with relatives who you only see once a year while simultaneously trying to consume unreasonable amounts of food and/or liquor. This presents a unique problem: dressing to impress your distant family while maintaining a level of comfort that is conducive to eating and sitting for long periods of time. While we all know Thanksgiving isn't the time to break out our best Carine Roitfeld-inspired look--too tight for face-stuffing!--finding a fashionable alternative to sweats can be difficult. We've pulled together the most stylish items that are comfy, chic, and won't disturb your proper Grandma. (So don't wear your Balenciaga Darth Vader visor, ok?) Of course our list includes Stella McCartney, the legendary mixer of casual and elegant, our favorite button downs from Madewell, a hat trick of cute shoes, and a Céline t-shirt--because a girl can dream, right? Check out all the Thanksgiving-friendly options in our slideshow!
