Outfit ideas for Thanksgiving
Choosing an outfit for Thanksgiving dinner should include the “feast factor.” (Read: Elastic.) Or, at least something that gives you a lil’ room to grow or is comfortable enough if you get recruited to play quarterback in a family football game.
If your Thanksgiving gathering is fancy:
Wear a shift dress or sweater dress in an autumn color — like cranberry, yam, mashed potato. (Whoops, we clearly have food on the brain). But reds, oranges, creams and browns are rich, classic fall colors that will be perfectly festive. If you’re wearing a plain dress, add a pearl or ruby necklace for the special occasion.
Also, if you’re the orchestrating the Thanksgiving feast or helping in the kitchen, wear an apron to protect from grease or gravy stains.
If your Thanksgiving gathering is active:
Does your family play a driveway basketball game of “T-U-R-K-E-Y” instead of “H-O-R-S-E”? Do you go for a turkey trot in the morning? Play football? We laud you for earning your calories.
Wear some jeans or sweatpants that will support your athletic prowess. Pair them with a cotton T-shirt. To transition your outfit, bring a knit sweater that you can easily layer over your T-shirt and fall boots to replace your sneakers. Pack a necklace or some earrings.
If your Thanksgiving gathering is laid-back:
Try a pull-over, patterned sweater, relaxed boyfriend or leggings if your sweater is long enough to cover your bottom. Pair with leather booties for flats for a casual look that is perfect for gathering around the fireplace and eating pumpkin pie.
