Finding a Thanksgiving outfit that feels celebratory while still prioritizing comfort isn't exactly what we'd call an easy feat. Just like grandma's secret biscuit recipe, there are certain secret ingredients that make all the difference.
So before you head home for the first big holiday of the season, make sure you're packing an outfit that will get your elders' approval while still allowing you to enjoy your meal stress- (and stomach pain–) free. Below, we're highlighting 22 looks that will help you do just that. Read on for the pretty but comfy thanksgiving outfits you need this year.
