Thanksgiving is for stretchy pants. Much as you might like a good pair of high-waisted jeans, you don’t want something that’s going to dig into your belly while you’re digging into a delicious feast. Luckily, there are plenty of eating-friendly styles that don’t remotely resemble sweats. Whether you’re into the fancy pajama trend, want something colorful and festive, or need something that could pass for real trousers, we have you covered. Scroll ahead to shop some of our favorites.

The Picture-Worthy Pair
