Food, family, friends and fashion! We can’t think of a better combination! Yes, it could only be Thanksgiving. It will be here before you know it.

And, along with the decision about whether to eat in or out, the big question is how to choose what to wear for thanksgiving! In this articles we will show you how to dress for Thanksgiving and give you  5 thanksgiving outfits to choose from!

After all, if you’ve already sorted out the perfect Thanksgiving outfit, you can turn your attention to how you are going to cook your turkey! Or who is going to cook it for you!

The most important part of Thanksgiving is the time we spend with loved ones. So, it’s important to feel comfortable, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t also be stylish! A pair of print pants provides impact while still being comfortable to move around in, get the turkey out of the oven (if it’s your turn to cook) or go for a quick before or after dinner stroll!

2. Jeans and a cosy knit

If you’re staying at home for Thanksgiving, then you definitely want to feel relaxed. And what could be more relaxing than a cosy cardigan? To give your outfit some extra oomph, you could opt for jeans in a fall color like burgundy or olive, rather than your usual black or blue!

3. A stylish shift dress

A shift dress is an easy style to wear, whether you’re in or out for Thanksgiving. If you’re rushing around after guests and taking turkey out of the oven, it’s easy to bend down in. Plus, if you have too much to eat, you don’t have to worry about letting your belt out a notch, or having an overly tight waistband!

Whether you’ve burnt the turkey and are heading out for an impromptu meal, or you’ve been planning dinner out with your family for months, a loose-fitting dress could be the answer when thinking about what to wear for Thanksgiving.

4. A velvet blazer

What better time of year to wear velvet than for Thanksgiving? And with the festive season fast approaching, a velvet blazer could be a hardworking piece in your closet in the next few weeks.

Plus, with a hero piece like this, you can keep the rest of your outfit simple, and team it with a simple tee or blouse, and jeans or pants, that you already have in your closet.

I love the deep teal of this Eliza J blazer, although if you want to make even more impact, it also comes in a beautiful bright berry shade. For more color inspiration for winter and fall check out this piece on the color trends for fall 2018.

5. A pretty blouse

An easy way to stay stylish AND comfortable is to opt for a pretty blouse to wear with your jeans. Then, you can either add flats or heels depending on whether you are planning to stay in or go out!

All of these outfits can be adapted for comfort. You could change your shoes to suit, depending on whether you’re heading out to a restaurant or cooking at home, going for a walk, or playing games with your children or grandkids. Then, you can add or take away accessories to get the level of casual or formal that you want!
