Pull out your comfiest pants because Thanksgiving is just around the corner. You’ve been waiting all year for this delicious meal and you’re planning to stuff yourself silly. We’ve got some tips and clothing options to help you figure out how to dress for Thanksgiving dinner so you can be comfortable without looking like you just rolled out of bed.
Tips for dressing for Thanksgiving dinner to keep comfort and style in mind
Opt for a Dress
Dresses allow you to eat plenty while still looking put together. Bonus points that you won’t have to unbutton your pants after dinner like Uncle John does every year. A cozy cable knit sweater dress is a fun option, especially when paired with a vest or a blanket scarf. Add a pair of tall boots and you’ll be all set.
Pair a Sweater with Leather Leggings
If you’d prefer to wear pants, pairing a chunky, oversized sweater with a pair of leather leggings is a great option. The sky is really the limit with shoes for an outfit like this. You could go casual with sneakers or flats, or dress it up with heels or heeled boots. This floral sweater is a pretty and unique option. These faux leather leggings are a nicer option than the leggings you lounge around the house in.
For a dressier look, go for a pair of drape pants paired with heels and a simple top. These frill hem pants are a unique choice. They can serve double duty, too, when you wear them to work after the holidays. Adding heels and some nice jewelry will help you feel put together while still comfortable.
A Midi Skirt
Midi skirts are a fun option because you’ll feel dressed up, but still be comfortable at the same time. Evoke the holiday spirit with this crushed velvet pleated skirt. Add a simple long sleeve top in a solid color and a pair of comfortable heels to set yourself up with a go-to holiday outfit.
Stick to a Basic Black Dress
When in doubt, stick with basic black. This turtleneck mini dress with long sleeves can be dressed up or dressed down, depending on your dinner situation. Pair it with tall boots for a more casual look or with heels to feel a little more dressed up.
