- & Comfortable
So, go ahead and take that slice of pumpkin or apple pie you’ve been eyeing. Just try not to outshine the picture perfect turkey.
1. Cropped pants, a playful blouse, and a statement necklace
En route to a dressier Thanksgiving affair? Become the star of the show with a statement necklace that makes an entrance on a canvas of a striking, yet simple top. The unique silhouette of an asymmetrical hemline adds an effortless layer of modern elegance (such as this blouse from Carven, which offers a spin on a basic blouse). Complete the masterpiece with cropped pants and a calf hair pump, which adds a flair of texture.
2. Cozy sweater, slim fit jeans, and a silk scarf
Cozy and chic don’t have to be strange bedfellows! Pair that cozy sweater in the back of your closet with your favorite pair of slim fit jeans. A fun, printed silk scarf will take the style up a notch. Bonus points for throwing a comfortable ankle boot with a low heel and a fun print into the mix.
Bring it all together with a timeless and classy wool camel coat with a sleeveless version like this one from J.Crew. An investment piece, this spin on a fall and winter classic adds a flawless final layer of sophistication both dressed up (See below) and dressed down.
3. Slim fit jeans, oversized top, and riding boots
Get polished with an oversized top, dark wash slim fit jeans, and your favorite pair of riding boots. A chic and southwest inspired jacket is the perfect Fall weather accessory. Punch it up with a contrasting, pink bag (like this structured beauty from Michael Kors) that is sure to sweeten the ensemble.
4. A shift dress, statement necklace, and bold wedges
You can’t go wrong with a black shift dress. The looser fit will leave you comfortable for hours. Paired with black tights and bold booties, you’ll be free to take part in all sorts of Thanksgiving activities (from playing charades to chasing the little ones). Spice it up with a red necklace that makes a statement all of its own. Heading out into colder weather? Take the elegance up a notch with a sleeveless wool coat and bold, leather gloves (Mark & Graham offer a gorgeous array of color options).
