It’s here, it’s here! It’s the week of Thanksgiving and let me tell, you I can smell it already!
Second to the food, my look on Thanksgiving is the most important aspect of the day. Why? Because this critical choice can make or break your comfort level throughout the day. Not only do you want to look super stylish to impress the family you only see a few times a year, but you want to be able to make it back for thirds without letting your too tight pants or crop top stop you.
Here are a few ideas that will make striking fashion statements, but allow you to keep your eye on the casserole (I mean prize)!
The “Room for Leftovers” Sweater
Think oversized and slouchy. Keep it neutral, so that you don’t look like a scoop of sweet potatoes. Trust me, you want to take advantage of this comfy trend before it’s gone. Pair your oversized sweater with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a trendy flat and you’re golden!
The “Sweet as Pie” Blouse
Note that this option is also loose (your welcome)! There’s nothing sweeter than pumpkin pie on thanksgiving, so why not take a note from the dessert table and tie in the season’s richest color. Let the color do all the talking here and pair with a casual jean and heels, if you dare.
The “Sweater Weather” Dress
It’s finally sweater weather, so do your part and wear one! They’re the best invention since boxed stuffing and certainly appropriate for a family gathering. A dress says “Oh hey, I’m here to have a great time” and the cozy knit screams, “But I’m totally down for a nap after dinner.” If you get a second wind and want to meet up with your friends afterwards, toss on a pair of over-the-knee boots and ta da, versatile perfection!
The “Thankful for Elastic” Palazzo Pants
They’re a dream come true! We’ve all secretly unbuttoned the top button a time or two, so why not avoid that discomfort altogether and go with an elastic waistband. Choose a wide leg pant for a sophisticated look or even a jogger if your fam is super casual. I’m also the girl that puts up the Christmas tree before Thanksgiving, so holiday red is 100% recommended!
The “Harvest Hues” Outfit
Because who doesn’t get inspired by the changing of the leaves. I take my fashion cues from mother nature this time of year and she never disappoints. Bring a little autumn cheer to the Thanksgiving table with an outfit full of warm fall colors and soft textures. Think suede and a flouncy blouse (yep, still leaving room).
Comment below and let me know which look you’re leaning towards. Cozy sweater or fall colors? Gosh, you can even mix the two! I love dressing for special occasions, but am all about practicality.
If you’re heading out to Tanger to get in a little post Thanksgiving shopping, be sure and check your center hours beforehand. Some centers are opening 6PM Thanksgiving evening and staying open through the night. Now that’s a good way to burn off those calories!
The weekend also launches a new set of holiday hours, which should ease all of your time crunch worries.
Have fun and eat up everyone!
