You're planning a slew of holiday parties this year in an attempt to get on your mother-in-law's good side. (Good luck.) And you're going to need something to wear while prepping all those Pinterest-inspired appetizers. Goodness knows that sweats and a ponytail won't work. So slip into a pair of these Bold-Pattern Twill Capris ($18), belt a cardigan at the waist, and put on a pair of loafers. Bonus points if you ask her to join you in the preparations.
