11 Comfy Clothes To Wear During The Holidays

You're probably going to be doing a lot of lounging around with your family and consuming insane amounts of food in the next two months, and that means you're going to need comfy clothes to wear during the holiday season. These soft and stretchy pieces to rock during the holidays are the answer to all your ill fitting attire woes. From maxi dresses to ugg boots, there are tons of awesome comfy — and warm — articles of clothing that'll take you from Thanksgiving to New Year's.

I think people unfairly give comfy clothes a bad reputation. Just because I'm rocking an oversized sweatshirt, cat socks, and three-day hair doesn't mean I can't be cute as hell. Style and comfort is about how you feel on the inside, and to be honest, I feel great in my chunky knit sweater. The truth is that comfort is always in style, and who doesn't love being able to squeeze a little more turkey and pumpkin pie onto their plate because of a lack of a zipper? Whether you're in a turkey-induced coma, headed out for a party and want to be super relaxed, or you're just not feeling like venturing into the chilly November and December air in stiff pieces, these comfy clothing choices have you covered.
