Recognize that sucker up top? That’s right, it’s officially November, so you’ve now got one month to burn as many calories as you can in anticipation of taking on that Goliath. But don’t you have more important things to worry about (like how the hell you’re going to fit that monster inside your oven)? Instead of loosening buttons all evening long, allow us to suggest some clever ways to tackle expanding waistbands.

Jonathan Simkhai’s solution is as simple as can be—buttons? What buttons? His Silk Stripe Track Pant is rendered in soft charmeuse with a comfortable elasticated waist that will keep you looking your slimmest no matter the meal. Likewise, ISAORA’s Elastic Insert East Pant slips in a bit of stretch where you need it most so that you can eat like Uncle Earl without following Uncle Earl’s lead when he undoes his belt halfway through dinner.

Eating well and looking good aren’t mutually exclusive, folks.
