Comfortable Clothing To Wear On Thanksgiving 2012 (PHOTOS)

It's the most wonderful time of the year. Families and friends gather, and of course, you get to have an amazing meal usually made up of turkey, stuffing, gravy, green beans and pumpkin pie. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Thanksgiving is upon us. But with all the festivities going on, it's easy to forget one of the most crucial parts of this holiday: Your ensemble.

We're not saying that Thanksgiving is a time to try out the latest runway looks, rather it's a time to experiment with Lycra, elastic waistbands and oversized sweaters. Nothing is worse than feeling uncomfortable in a bandage dress while you're helping yourself to another serving of yams. So, plan ahead and make sure your outfit is as comfortable and practical as possible.

The more forgiving, the better is always a nice motto to adopt around the holiday season. Why not try an oversized flannel -- it'll hide your full belly and it's super cozy to curl up in after you've stuffed your face. Yoga pants are also totally acceptable. Let's face it, Thanksgiving dinner is kind of like going to the gym, a lot of stamina is required for both. If your family likes to get more dressed up, slip on a sweater dress (remember, a babydoll cut is your friend). This Thursday might also be a good time to try out the cape trend (nothing says pass the pie like wearing a loose blanket to dinner). And ladies, for the love of God, leave the skinny jeans at home. No one wants to muffin top out of their jeans while they're reaching for that cranberry muffin.

So what are you planning on wearing to the turkey fest this year? Add your photo below!
