8 fancy athleisure pants (aka “eating pants”) to wear this Thanksgiving

If you’ve never heard the term “eating pants” before, prepare to have your life changed.

When you’re prepping for a massive meal of epic proportion, you need a wardrobe to match. That’s why Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to bust out your eatin’ pants. And comfy pants that allow for optimal turkey gobbling don’t have to be plain ole sweatpants. They can be just as fancy as a cute dress.

Dressy athleisure pants (like the ones below) offer the perfect middle ground — allowing you to look stylish while providing some wiggle room for second helpings.
