Styling Your Thanksgiving Outfit

Surely, the best part of Thanksgiving is the food. Well, one of the best parts, if you ask us. For a holiday that’s filled with amazing food and family, you really have to think about throwing together your best Thanksgiving outfit. You’ll want to make sure what you choose not only looks fantastic, but is also comfortable enough to make you feel your best! Seize the holiday spirit by saying no to sloppy sweatpants and say yes to the festive, chic options we have in store…no matter the setting.




Sometimes a holiday dinner is a more formal affair, but that doesn’t always mean you have to wear a dress. These J.Crew velvet joggers (size 4, $49.99) inject the perfect amount of glamour because of how easily they can be dressed up or down and the elastic waist adds a little extra stretch for that second helping. Pair it with this Amanda Uprichard leopard blouse – because animal print is one of the biggest trends this season (size P, $48.99). Adding an unexpected pop of color, like these Joie cobalt blue fringed sandals (size 8.5, $59.99) will elevate your look even more. Top it off with a layered necklace ($11.99) and stay warm all season long in this stunning Kenneth Cole coat (size 4, $99).


Dressy Casual

As mentioned, you want to choose pieces that are comfortable throughout the day and allow for pie and an expanding midsection. A wrap skirt like this Emory Park velvet midi skirt (size S, $49.99) is a great choice because it allows you to adjust the waist post-feast. Sweaters are always comfy, so why not choose one with some personality, like this ruffled Veronica Beard sweater (size XS, $54.99). Pair it with some beautiful statement earrings (Lele Sadoughi, $49.99) and ankle boots (Aquatalia, size 9, $169.99).



Just because it’s a low-key meal doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. If you’re headed to a casual affair, choose a feminine, yet loose blouse (Cabi, size S, $39.99), skinny jeans with some stretch, and a studded pair of slip-on sneakers (Michael Kors, size 38, $49.99) that are comfortable enough to toss a football around with your family. And who says a coat can’t be the stand-out piece to your look? Make a statement with your outerwear this season with this gorgeous windowpane printed Theory coat (size M, $149.99).

Wherever you go for turkey day this year, you’ll be the most stylish one there!
