What To Wear For Thanksgiving

Still wondering what you're going to wear this week for Thanksgiving? (Which I can't believe is just four days away.)  No need to fret, because I've got you covered.  Whether your Thanksgiving dinner is a formal occasion, or a casual family gathering, I've got all the outfit inspiration that you need to put together the perfect look.

If your holiday is a formal celebration,  I love the idea of wearing a dressy skirt with a bow blouse.  Pleated skirts are a must have this holiday season, and a party (full) skirt will always be my classic go-to.  Pair it with a silk blouse, and add a bow tie, for a put together, fun, yet classic look.

Another way to dress up for Thanksgiving is with a sweater dress, which I will be wearing this holiday.  Not only do they look polished, but since you're basically wearing an oversized sweater, most are super soft and cozy.  I'm obsessed with the fringe detail on my sweater dress, above, and will be wearing it this Thursday with tights an over-the-knee boots.

If your Thanksgiving celebration is semi-formal, then again a sweater dress, or a pair of leather pants make a great option.  Dress your leather (or faux leather) bottoms up with a blouse, or pair it with a chunky knit and statement earrings for a cozy, put together look.  Plus, a lot of leather (and faux leather) pants tend to have an elastic waistband, which is perfect for those extra pieces of pie (tell me I'm not the only one who goes back for thirds)!

For causal Thanksgiving get togethers, I love dressing up a pair of jeans.  Even when I am able to dress casually, I still like feeling put together, so a dark pair of denim, and a dressy blouse is one of my favorite pairings.  If you're looking to go for a more comfortable look, then a chunky knit, and lace up flats make a great option.  Finish your look with a stand out pair of earrings, or statement necklace to add a little glam.

Do you know what you'll be wearing this Thanksgiving?  I'd love to hear your outfit suggestions!
