Turkey Day is almost here, and that means the extended family almost is, too. Whether your house will be filled with people you see often or ones you see only on holidays, you want to look your best for them. We pulled together several outfit ideas that will make you feel confident and fabulous no matter whom you spend your Thanksgiving with!
1. Cozy up
Sweater dresses are a great choice for Thanksgiving dinner because they’re so comfy and cozy. They’re warm, but still a way to make a dress wearable in the increasingly chilly weather. Try one with a vest and a pair of patterned tights as extra accessories and extra warmth. Finish your outfit off with a trendy pair of bangle bracelets and your fave riding boots, and you’ll be all set to begin feasting.
2. Stay stylish and sophisticated
A tweed jacket is a classic piece and an awesome way to pull together an outfit. But if not worn the right way, it can leave you looking a little frumpy. An easy way to make this piece young is by mixing it with a youthful trend, such as leather. We love this leather-lined twill jacket because it has both a professional and fashion˗forward look. Worn with trousers (not jeans!) that have a leather accent, you’ll look both super trendy and put-together. A big part of Thanksgiving is looking sophisticated for your family and friends, and incorporating a fun trend like leather will show that you’re stylish and refined.
3. Skirting around the cold weather
Not ready to part with your warm-weather skirts yet? Try contrasting a flouncy skirt with a warm, chunky sweater. If the skirt is high-waisted, you could even go for a cropped sweater or turtleneck. Avoid a cropped sweater if your skirt is so low that it’ll bare your midriff, though, because a Thanksgiving family dinner is not the time to show some skin. Otherwise, try out this look! It’s super cute and a great way to incorporate a warm-weather item into a cold-weather setting. Add a pair of tall cable-knit socks and boots to balance out the skirt in terms of warmth and coverage.
4. Make a statement
Jeans, boots, and a blouse make for a cute (albeit unexciting) outfit, but there’s an easy way to make it more interesting: add a statement jacket! Whether the jacket has some sort of embellishment or is a trendy color, it’ll definitely give your whole look an edge. We love this burgundy jacket because it’s the perfect color for fall. With some dark-wash jeans, riding boots and a scarf for warmth, it’s so easy to pull off this Thanksgiving.
5. Timeless and trendy
If you want to play it safe (yet still be fabulously on trend!), go for a minimalist fall look in classic black and white. Pick a comfortable sweater and leggings that have some stretch – after all, you will be stuffing yourself full of yummy Thanksgiving food, and you’ll want to be comfortable. Make sure the sweater is long enough so that your leggings can be deemed appropriate to wear to a nice Thanksgiving dinner (it should cover your butt!). You can also add a fall-oriented accessory, such as this gorgeous metallic leaf headband.
