Fitness-Inspired Looks For When You Ate Too Much

Is there anything more comfortable than leggings? We don’t think so—especially on a day like Thanksgiving, where you’ll likely be eating to the point of expansion. Of course, you still need to look presentable for the holidays, so your go-to pair of workout leggings might be off the table.

If you want to dress up your Thanksgiving look, here are five ideas that are comfy and stylish:

For Friendsgiving
A lightweight, breathable skirt is just what you need to keep cool while you’re helping in the kitchen. Top it with a sweater that shows off your shoulders.
