On Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and any other festive or non-festive day left in the poo year that is 2020, we have no patience for fabric touching our skin. Any garment we put on needs a tent-like silhouette that promotes maximum breathability with fabric that won't rumple when we inevitably collapse into a heap on the couch. But, on our hunt for such voluminous pieces rivaling soft parachutes, we also want something stylish enough to seamlessly flounce with us through the holiday season. Enter, the tiered dress.
This roomy piece is also inherently layered, making it warm enough to cover our bodies from the crispest of Thanksgiving days to the chilliest of winter nights. With paneled skirts that increase in volume as they reach the floor (or, just our thighs if we're feeling cheeky) and hemlines that practically float (ensuring top-notch ventilation), these feast-friendly frocks feel just as stylish (and comfortable) when layered under sweaters or overtop turtlenecks and tees. Ahead, find 29 tiered dresses that are more than suitable for eating turkey — or, tofurkey — in.
