Thanksgiving brings two conflicting interests to the table (so to speak). On one hand, you want to look pulled-together and cute — you’re seeing family and friends you haven’t seen in ages! On the other hand, you want to eat your body weight in mashed potatoes and Grandma’s cookies. So what’s a girl to do? We’ve got a few ideas. Well actually, Victoria Beckham, Reese Witherspoon, Olivia Palermo and Taylor Swift do: they’ve all stepped out in super-chic looks that are comfy enough to wear while stuffing your face.

If your fam likes to go fancy, get inspired by Beckham’s chunky sweater and floor-length skirt. A maxi is one of those sneaky pieces that actually feels like pajamas but looks elegant enough to wear on the red carpet. Opt for one with a forgiving waist, pair it with an oversize knit top (maybe go for a hint of color here since you’re bound to end up in lots of #turkeyday Instapics) and pair with sleek boots and tousled side-swept waves. A gold chain belt peeking out will amp up the glam even more.

The next look, seen on Witherspoon, disguises its comfy factor thanks to polished details like a leopard-print sweater, crisp white collar and emerald pointy suede pumps. (Just make sure your skinnies have lots of stretch!) Then copy the star by sweeping you hair into a glossy ponytail and keeping a green juice handy (trust us, you’re going to want it tomorrow). Bonus: Her lack of chunky layers will still look sleek paired with an apron if you happen to be hosting.
Next up, Palermo shows us the power of a chic outer layer. While there’s nothing particularly special about a cream sweater and wide-leg jean, her cape-style brown sweater with a thick fur-trimmed hem seriously elevates her overall look without trying too hard. Throw one on over some basics, add a pretty bag and you’re good to go.
Finally, there’s Miss Swift, who basically looks like the poster girl for a cozy Thanksgiving. Her color palette is so on point (hunter green and deep cranberry scream “November”) plus, jeggings with an oversize poncho are the “actually dressed” equivalent of yoga pants and a hoodie. Top with a knit scarf, booties and a red lip for added Swift-like adorableness.
