On Thanksgiving, dressing for comfort is a high priority. Let’s face it, I’m probably going to be eating a little bit too much. Plus, Thanksgiving tends to be a long day, so comfort is of utmost importance. But of course I want to look festive and cute. Which begs the question, how do I know what to wear for Thanksgiving!?!
What To Wear for Thanksgiving
NOTE: As of 11/22/16, this post is updated with current shopping links. You’re welcome!!
If you’re doing the hosting, you may want to start out the day in comfy yoga pants and change right before your guests arrive. If you ARE the guest, of course you can go in your outfit of choice, but consider bringing along a pair of flats or slippers in case the day tends to drag on.
Casual Thanksgiving Outfit
I like to keep it casual on Thanksgiving Day. Think sweater, jeans, boots and a few killer accessories. I love the details on this beaded cable sweater, and of course, you KNOW I will be wearing my favorite skinny jeans and riding boots.
A pair of statement earrings makes the look special enough for a festive occasion, and I am drooling over this Rebecca Minkoff MAC Convertible Crossbody in port.

Cozy Thanksgiving Outfit
If you REALLY want to be comfy, and you’re attending a casual event, go for leggings and a tunic or poncho. Hey, you’ve gotta have plenty of room for that second piece of pumpkin pie!! The UGG Classic Cardy is basically a glorified slipper. SO cozy. Then all you need is one fab accessory, such as this light-catching lattice necklace, to elevate this comfy outfit to holiday chic!
Dressier Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas
Take it up a notch and wear dark skinny jeans with a cute top and a pair of great heeled pumps or heeled boots. This is the perfect occasion for coated skinny jeans. They look like leather, but they’re much more comfortable and practical.
I hope this post gives you some ideas for styling an outfit from your closet to wear to your Thanksgiving gathering in a few weeks. It will be here before you know it!!!
Just remember to dress lightly or wear layers. Holiday gatherings to be warm, what with the oven on all day and all those people in one place. So it’s best not to dress too warmly, no matter how cold it is outside.
And make sure to bring along your cozy slippers for when dinner is over and you just want to relax and be comfy.
