Four Outfits You Can Wear for Thanksgiving

Comfy Thanksgiving Outfit

I don’t know about you, but Thanksgiving is kind of a big deal in my family.  Like, it’s the highlight of the year.  What can I say?  My family’s love language is FOOD!  Oh, and I usually have three Thanksgiving dinners to go to spread out over a week with various sections of my extended family.  Like I said, it’s a big deal to us!

Thanksgiving dinners in my family are casual to dressy-casual, never even close to formal.  We try to look somewhat decent, but priority is always still about the food.  Like, the most important question about attire is not “Is this nice enough for dinner?” rather, “Can you eat enough in it to feed a small army and still be comfortable?”  At least, that’s how I approach Thanksgiving attire.  😛

The following outfits fit my criteria of needing to be presentable, and maybe even a little more dressed up, while being totally flexible enough for eating a shameful amount of food.  If that’s your jam, then read on!

Maroon Top + Skinnies + Leopard Scarf + Cognac Booties + ToteLeopard Scarf + Maroon Top + Skinnies + Cognac Boots + Tote Skinnies + Maroon Top + Leopard Scarf + Cognac Booties + Tote

Out of the three Thanksgiving dinners in my family, the biggest one usually involves 40-50 people, cooking all day, more food than can fit on an entire table (without any place settings or anything), and people sitting all over the house either at tables or on the ground stuffing our faces.  It’s glorious!  😀

I could get away with wearing sweats and no one would be offended, but instead this outfit is currently my top contender.  I wouldn’t wear these jeans since I’ll need maternity jeans by Thanksgiving (will be 19 weeks then and even now I’m already in need of maternity jeans!)  However, if I weren’t pregnant, these would be a great choice for how stretchy they are.  These, or my black pair of Wit & Wisdom jeans since those actually have elastic in the waistband which would be perfect for Thanksgiving!  This top is sooo comfy and soft and fuzzy, warm enough for indoors, and oversized to make room for a Thanksgiving food-baby (and a real growing baby.)  I might lose the scarf once the eating happens, but the earrings will suffice in helping it still look someone what pulled together.  Yay for super comfy options like that!

Shop for the Look:
Top: Nordstrom (exact–wearing XS, runs large)

Jeans: Nordstrom (exact–wearing size 4, runs large)
Scarf: Nordstrom (exact)
Boots: c/o Sole Society (similar, similar)
Bag: Nordstrom (exact)
Watch: c/o JORD (exact)

 

Dark Orange Lace Top + Wristlet + Skinnies + Nude Heels + Statement Necklace Orange Lace Top + SKinnies + Nude Heels + WristletNude Heels + Skinnies + Dark Orange Lace Top + Statement Necklace + Wristlet
I’ve shown this outfit several times over the last few weeks, but I’m showing it today because I bought this top specifically for a dressier in-home Thanksgiving meal.  The color of this top is perfect for fall and Thanksgiving!  Pairing it with dark wash jeans keeps it casual while the nude pumps and gold statement necklace polish it off with a dressier element.  And as per my criteria, the top is pretty loose and forgiving to accommodate eating a ton!

Shop for the Look:
Top: ModCloth (exact–wearing M)
Jeans: Nordstrom (exact–wearing size 4)
Shoes: Target (updated version)
Necklace: Nordstrom (almost identical in Rose Gold)
Bag: DSW (similar)
Watch: c/o JORD (exact)

 

Black Swing Dress + Cognac Booties + Leopard Scarf + Tote Black Swing Dress + Tote + Cognac Booties + Leopard Scarf Cognac Booties + Leopard Scarf + Tote + Black Swing Dress Tote + Cognac Booties + Black Swing Dress + Leopard Scarf

This is another very comfortable and forgiving yet put together look for Thanksgiving.  These super soft, stretchy dresses are what I like to call “pajama dresses” because they feel like pajamas, which is perfect for a Thanksgiving feast.  If the swing dress silhouette doesn’t work well for your shape, you can find dresses with more seams, like a v-neckline or empire waist, in this same material.

I bought this dress last year and it’s back again this year right HERE.  I have it in maroon, black, and a black and white print.  They do run a bit short, but luckily I found a nearly identical version that’s 38″ long HERE on Amazon.  (A lot of the ones on Amazon are around 33″ which is too short for me.  Loooove the 38″ length.)

If it’s colder where you live, I’d either add black or brown tights to this look or wear knee-high brown suede boots.  I would also wear a statement necklace underneath the scarf, like the necklace shown in the previous outfit, so that if you take off the scarf your pajama dress won’t actually look like pajamas and will still look polished and pulled together.

Shop for the Look:
Dress: Old Navy (exact–wearing M; similar–longer 38″ with pockets! )

Scarf: Nordstrom (exact)
Boots: c/o Sole Society (similar, similar)
Bag: Nordstrom (exact)
Watch: c/o JORD (exact)

Black Cardigan + Black Skinnies + Red Flats + Black Floral Top Red Flats + Black Skinnies + Black Cardigan + Black Floral Top + Tote Black Floral Top + Cardigan + Statement Necklace + Black Skinnies

Earlier I mentioned that my super stretchy black Wit & Wisdom jeans have elastic in the waistband.  This is probably key for a stuff-your-face Thanksgiving.  For a Thanksgiving outfit formula with them: any loosely fitted printed blouse + oversized cardigan (optional) + these stretchy jeans.

This is a fuss-free outfit as it does not rely on a scarf that might get in your way, and the cardigan is optional but still comfy and easy to move around in if you need the layer.  This works with a ton of blouses, and you’ll look totally put together for an in-home Thanksgiving dinner!

Top: Nordstrom (similar tank top version/similar long sleeve version)

Jeans: Nordstrom (exact–I wear size 6)
Shoes: Nordstrom (exact–I wear size 8.5)

    Audrey I only like black dress for thanksgiving. I do like the lace shirt but I would wear it with Kati jeans and brown 1 inch boots.
