DressCoded is an original Revelist series that provides on-point outfits for life's toughest fashion scenarios. You're welcome.

Thanksgiving, whether you're ready for it or not, is coming up very quickly. You might be having an extremely chill gathering with friends and family in your own home, you might be bringing the food to someone else, or you might even have plans to go out to see friends after the meal, despite food comas.

Though it's always tempting to rock your stretchiest pants and that one shirt you don't care about keeping stainless to the table, but like any other day, Thanksgiving is still a prime moment for style. But worry not, we don't sacrifice food for fashion here.

If you're showing up at someone else's house for Friendsgiving dinner, show 'em you care by ditching your oldest eating shirt and wearing something comfy yet polished instead.

Don't worry — this skirt's waistband is elastic. We told you we'd never make you sacrifice food for fashion. Also, there's a reason this entire outfit is black. Spilled a little cranberry sauce? Who cares?

No fall outfit is complete without a solid coat to match — and by late November, you're really going to need it.

You might be hosting the Thanksgiving festivities at your own home and doing a lot of cooking yourself, in which case something far more casual will do the trick.

Few people have ever regretted investing in a pair of Dr. Martens. These ones come in soft, brown leather that goes with everything and a heel just high enough to convince people you're dressing up for them.

Maybe you're switching it up this year and opting to eat out on Thanksgiving — or maybe meeting friends after dinner for an "I'd rather be drinking than Black Friday Shopping" night out — in which case your outfit ought to be no holds barred.
