It’s a little over a week from Thanksgiving, do you know where your stretchy pants are? Welcome to the second post of One Piece, Two Ways: comfortable Thanksgiving outfits edition.
Yesterday I styled these fabulous “I don’t really look like leggings” snakeskin leggings for a casual T-day dinner of Friendsgiving. But if this day is on the fancier side for you, or you just want to show everyone up on November 28th, then this post is for you.
Let’s do a quick recap on these snakeskin leggings, shall we?
- A high-rise and interior cloth panel keeps everything in check (I’m looking at you, stuffing) without feeling an uncomfortable sucking-in sensation
- Embossing adds texture and dimension to these leggings, so much so that they don’t really look like leggings
- The interior of these are lined, meaning your won’t have to peel these off of yourself and they won’t stick
As a reminder, I took my normal size. They fit super snug at first, but 20 minutes or so of wearing them and they’ll mold to the body perfectly.
Yesterday’s cozy sweater got a deluxe upgrade with this silk button up shirt by Equipment. I am a huge fan of Equipment Silk shirts; they’re sleek and simple, and the silk instantly makes any outfit more chic. Exhibit A: this outfit.
To me a silk shirt is a closet staple and works for literally any occasion. Want to dress up jeans (or leggings)? Put on a silk shirt. Need a nice top for that pencil skirt and that important meeting? Put on a silk shirt. A closet full of clothes but nothing to wear? A silk shirt is the answer. You’re never under or overdressed in one.
Don’t get sticker shock; Equipment shirts are pricey but stick to one in black or white and I promise you’ll be reaching for it weekly. I’m wearing my normal size.
Right before I shot these photos I added a belt into the mix to give some definition to my waist. But in the spirit of Thanksgiving and eating as much as you want, I can confirm this shirt looks just as cute without the belt. (I just want to give you options, ya know?)
Complete your “lazy girl fancy” look with a pair of classic black pumps, then throw on a necklace for good measure. (Mine is just a chunky, faux gold one that’s always fun to wear.)
