Not sure what to wear to Thanksgiving? Not sure what gift to give the hostess?
Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a week away? This time of year is all about spending time with loved ones, sharing stories, lots of laughter and of course, delicious food. Thanksgiving is a day when you shouldn’t worry about your waistline!
Dressing for this holiday is not as easy as you may think and it truly requires a game plan. You need a look that can withstand long hours in the kitchen, long car rides, glares from Grandma and the ever-expanding waistline that we all get on Thanksgiving Day (think pumpkin pie and leftovers on the way home)! One needs to be strategically stylish for this holiday and finding the perfect outfit takes time and planning.
I have put together three foolproof looks that will help you navigate your Thanksgiving wardrobe whether it’s a casual, dressy or formal affair.
If your Thanksgiving plans are more on the casual side, I would recommend wearing a pair of jeans or nice joggers, a nice tee or light weight sweater and a velvet blazer (any blazer will do but velvet is one of this seasons hottest trends and you can find a solid velvet blazer in just about any store). Plus, it’s a great piece to add to your closet that can be worn throughout fall and winter. You can pair this look with either a pump or loafer depending on how long your feet can withstand a heel!
If you’re plans are a bit dressier, an oversized sweater dress is the way to go! I tend to wear this look and pair my sweater dress with over-the-knee boots. This would also look great with a bootie if you want a more conservative look. You can’t go wrong either way!
Formal Thanksgiving? Go for something modern and super chic! I would suggest an elegant maxi dress or a silk pajama inspired suit paired with heels and statement earrings.
Remember to be stylish and strategic when picking your Thanksgiving outfit. Make sure to wear fall tones such as burgundy, brown or yellow and don’t forget that a comfortable outfit is the key to a successful day! Not sure what to take take your hostess?
