Holidays are the one occasion lately where I have the excuse to buy a new item of clothing. Since I’m still working from home most of the time, I don’t need as many work outfits and my daily outfit consists of leggings and a sweater. I’ve had fun browsing online for a cute top to wear this Thanksgiving (even if it’s just for a low-key family gathering).
Here are 5 Thanksgiving outfit ideas ranging from dressy to casual. Which one is your favorite?
Mustard Yellow Thanksgiving Outfit
I have a soft spot for mustard yellow. When I did one of those “what colors look good on you” tests, it came up as as “bad” color for my skin tone/hair color combo, yet I continue to wear it because I think it’s pretty. It’s the perfect fall shade and looks great paired with both brown and black, making it super versatile.
For this look, I paired the mustard yellow dress with cognac accessories (mules and a crossbody) and some gorgeous gold malachite jewelry.
Plaid Shacket Thanksgiving Outfit
I’ll admit that I thought the shacket trend would die out. But it’s apparently here to stay! Thanksgiving here in NJ is always cold, so this outfit would keep you warm and fairly comfy, too. Pair a plaid shacket with loose denim and then add a fun standout accessory — like these gorgeous, trendy cowboy boots.
Floral Dress Thanksgiving Outfit
I’m a floral-year-round type of girl and fully believe the pattern isn’t just for spring and summer. To make florals appropriate for fall and winter, choose a color palette that’s not too pastel and look for structured details (think smocking or a fun collar, like the dress in the photo below). Pair the dress with cold-weather accessories to finish off the look, like a felt fedora and chunky Chelsea boots.
Velvet Pants Thanksgiving Outfit
Flares are back, baby! I had a pair of almost-identical flared pants that I wore back in middle- and high-school, proving just how cyclical trends really are. Pair them with a corset-like top and some feminine accessories (like these pearl bobby pins and structured booties) to complete the style. Your little cousin isn’t the only one who can pull off the Gen-Z trends this Thanksgiving.
Faux Leather Leggings Thanksgiving Outfit
I just bought my first pair of faux leather leggings (I know, I know — I’m late to pulling the trigger here) and am thinking of styling them for my Thanksgiving outfit this year. You can’t go wrong pairing them with a comfy, tunic-length sweater in a fun, fall shade. To make the outfit a bit dressier, add some fancy earrings or a tufted headband.
