What to Wear for Thanksgiving: 3 Looks for 3 Occasions

Do you have any Thanksgiving traditions? Other than alternating which side of the family to spend the holiday with, we sadly don’t. As Jona gets older, I’d like to start some holiday traditions, so I’d love to hear yours to get some tradition inspiration!

Our Thanksgivings are usually pretty casual affairs, but I still have fun coming up with ideas for what to wear. Today I put together three looks that would be perfect for hosting Thanksgiving at your house, going to a casual family dinner, or doing some Thanksgiving party-hopping.



{stylish hostess} If you have the honor (or drew the short straw) to host Thanksgiving this year, you’ll want to dress comfortably and wear layers. I’m pairing this stretchy knit striped dress with this rust-coloredLoft cardigan that I found while shopping with Brandzaffair. Brandzaffair is an online shopping mecca where you can shop your favorite brands (hello, Loft, Target, and Gap!) and find the best deals. This fall-colored cardigan and striped dress, paired with flat desert boots and cozy sweater tights, combine to look both comfortable and put-together.

Cardigan: Loft c/o Brandzaffair | striped dress: Old Navy (now only $15!) | leopard belt: Gap Outlet (similar under $20) | desert booties: Crown Vintage (similar)

{casual family dinner} For a more relaxed look, I kept the Loft cardigan from Brandzaffair from the first look and added a graphic tee, jeans, booties, and a fun tasseled scarf. Thanks to Megan’s recommendation, I just picked up these denim leggings from Loft, which I love because they have the look of a skinny jean but the feel of a legging. (And for Thanksgiving, you know that stretch = good.)

{tour de Thanksgivings} If you’re going to multiple Thanksgiving dinners, your first priority has to be comfort. You will be pushing the limits on just how much food you can consume in a day, and you know no matter the excuse, grandma won’t let you get away with that tiny little spoonful of mashed potatoes. This loose, billowy swing dress is the perfect answer to the too-much-food dilemma. With warm boot socks and tall boots (even more warmth if you have an over-the-knee pair!) you may even be able to skip the tights for ultimate comfort. The scarf from the last look and a long gray cardigan complete this Thanksgiving look.
