Thanksgiving always brings the question, “How do I choose an outfit that will grant me the power to consume infinite turkey and mashed potatoes (no turkey tummy here), is grandma approved and gives me the confidence to feel I have dressed to impress?” You can avoid the ugly snowman sweaters and enjoy the food, family, and fun incorporating these styles.
- Sweaters are still a-okay.
Don’t fear the sweater. Knit, vintage, or cardigan style – this piece is still a go-to for the feast. Pair them with dark wash jeans, a statement necklace, and maybe even some booties. Post-dinner comfy lounging attire – check! Fashionable – double check!
- Dress it up!
A dress can be a perfect outfit to express your class and comfort, just don’t go too short. A draped dress will appease grumpy grandma and the dolman sleeve on this Rachel Roy piece keeps it classy without being too tight fitting. Pair it with a simple necklace and bangles for an effortless, insta-fashion effect. You can even add tights for colder weather or for a more “grown up” look if you’re sick of grandma pinching your cheeks. Pumps will elevate this look to the next level.
We see the shock and awe brighter than those sequins. We are not condoning the sequin dress, but tis the holiday season! Dazzle your relatives with a sequined tank or sweater; just keep your other pieces a more traditional black. Forever 21 has you covered if your closet is sequin-less; you can purchase this Feeling Festive Sequined Sweater just for the occasion.
Fall fashion trends still rule! Warm up that pumpkin pie and spice up the room with your Thanksgiving fashion. Every holiday is a fashion show and Thanksgiving affords us the opportunity to not only spend time with friends, family, and The Food Network, but also show off your style. Wherever you’re spending this holiday, especially if fashion runs in the family, you can be the go-to source for style!
