Thanksgiving is so close, and there’s so much to look forward to: time off of work, extra yummy food, time with your family/friends, and the Black Friday sales! So now is the time, if you haven’t already, to start planning your Turkey Day look.
The mission is the same every year: Operation find a cute and stylish outfit for a day full of food and naps. Accommodate your growing food baby without sacrificing style and steer clear of the overstretched leggings and high school T-shirt you found bunched up in the corner of your closet. Dressing to the nines isn’t exactly a Thanksgiving Day priority, whether you’re hosting a super-casual Friendsgiving, or going the more formal route with your family, you want to look amazing, right? Right! Keep reading for my tips on what you should wear this year for Thanksgiving – comfy chic style awaits you. I promise you can 100 percent have the best of both worlds.
If you’re completely set on wearing sweatpants, please just skip the ones you binge watch Netflix in and opt for an elevated pair like my soft gray suede ones by Halston. Balance the seemingly lazy choice of stretchy pants with a lightweight turtle neck and a pop of color in your shoes. See, I told you, you can have the best of both worlds and we’re only on tip #1!
A slip dress/skirt and sweater
A slip dress may seem clingy and form fitting, but an oversized sweater or flannel on top is deceptively comfy. Your family will think your outfit is beyond cute and innovative, but the oversized top is hiding the fact that you’re smuggling an entire pumpkin pie in your stomach. And that’s totally fine! Knot/tie your sweater or top when paring it with a slip dress to make it seem like a skirt and top. If you’re opting for the skirt then you can tuck your top in and add a belt or you can knot it.
Not so obvious leggings
Tight jeans are normally a no-go on Turkey day, but leggings that present themselves as nice pants do exist. My current favorites are the Spanx faux leather leggings. Game changer! Style them with a frilly feminine, but long top or sweater for added coverage in the bum area. Throw on your favorite over-the-knee boots and you’re ready to chow down.
A relaxed-fit jumpsuit for Thanksgiving is what dreams are made of, and one in a rich olive green super soft velvet is even better! If the jumpsuit has thin or spaghetti straps like mine, just layer a top or bodysuit underneath. I love animal prints so I went with a neutral colored python print body suit and it works perfect. If the relaxed fit isn’t flattering, add a belt and show off that waist sis! Accessorize this look with plush mules, blinged out flats or velvet booties like mine. This look is the epitome of cozy chic.
With my tips and suggestions for the year’s biggest family dinner, unbuttoning your pants or changing into those old sweatpants after dinner won’t even cross your mind! Pumpkin pie, savory stuffing, sweet yams, mashed potatoes, leftovers – I’m pretty much ready for it all. I hope you all have a blessed and delicious Thanksgiving with your loved ones.
