Finding the perfect Thanksgiving outfit is a painstakingly strategic affair. Between juggling reintroductions to distant relatives who haven’t seen you in years, the desire to not be filled with regret when you look back on the holiday photobook years down the line, and the very real need to feel comfortable while you help yourself to second (or third) servings of your favorite comfort foods – there’s a lot to consider when picking your turkey day ensemble. That’s why we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite sartorial pairings that will keep you looking the part throughout all of your holiday adventures.
A SWEATER DRESS AND TIGHTS
Sweater dresses are a comfy, yet stylish solution to holiday wear. Pair one with chic heeled boot and tights, and you’ll be ready for a holiday night cap once family dinner is all said and done. Besides, we love the ample food-baby real estate that the ultra-cozy sweaters provide. Who wouldn’t?
A CRISP WHITE OXFORD SHIRT AND A PLAID BLAZER
Fall season is plaid season, as far as we’re concerned – and we are 100% okay with that. We’re loving the plaid blazer trend on Thanksgiving, not just for its added warmth but for the polish it adds to an outfit. White oxford shirts are a classic on their own, so when paired with the chic plaid – make a timeless holiday outfit.
A RUSTIC WRAP DRESS
Orange on Thanksgiving may seem a bit on-the-nose for some, but we can’t resist the rich autumnal vibes a rusty hued wrap dress brings to the occasion. Add a belt at the waist for some definition and pair with your best-heeled ankle boots for a high impact – yet easy and breezy – look.
AN EARTHY JUMPSUIT
We love the versatility of a neutral, olive green jump suit. Dress it up with your favorite chunky heels or go-to pumps or dress it down with colorful sneakers or comfy flats – jumpsuits never disappoint.
A MODERN WRAP SKIRT AND TURTLENECK
This edgy, contemporary wrap skirt and soft, slouchy turtleneck are the epitome of hard vs. soft goodness. Finish the look off with tights for added warmth and add a statement ankle boot for even more interest.
