What to Wear: Thanksgiving Edition

It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving and I couldn’t be more excited to take a break from work, enjoy good company and yes, eat plenty of a Thanksgiving feast! If it were up to me, I’d stay in my pajamas all day, but since I’ll be traveling this year to meet some of my boyfriend’s family, I don’t think that is the best first impression to make.

Are you hanging with family this year? Meeting the boyfriend’s parents? Hosting your own Thanksgiving feast? Whatever your holiday plans are, there is an outfit for every occasion even for this food coma-based holiday that falls every third Thursday of November. What to wear?

For spending time with your family:
If your family is anything like mine, then you probably are comfortable hanging out with each other wearing your comfiest sweatpants, but if you decide you want to take a family photo or see a movie later, then you might want to wear something other than those ratty sweats you’ve had for ten years. Options include: colorful leggings and an oversized sweater or a loose sweater dress.

For meeting the boyfriend’s parents:
You want to look nice, but not like you’re trying too hard. You want to be comfy and yourself, but also a little dressed up. A wrap dress and textured tights is the perfect outfit to pull off this effortless look. Worn with boots or flats, this look will keep you cozy all day even if you eat that extra piece of pie.

For hosting your own Thanksgiving party:
You’ll be in the kitchen a lot even as guests arrive so you want something comfortable, but also that won’t make you too hot while the kitchen heats up. A light pair of dress pants and a short-sleeved shell top are a good choice plus you can layer on a jacket and cardigan during dinner or if things get chillier. A floor length skirt and a more fitted top is also a good outfit option.

Putting a few outfits together ahead of time takes the pressure off having to find an outfit the day of Thanksgiving. When it comes to Turkey Day, be comfy, be stylish, but most of all eat a lot and enjoy time spent with family and friends!

I like to dress cute BUT comfy. Nothing tight for sure! This comment has been removed.
