Picture it now: No work tomorrow and nothing on your plate but turkey, stuffing, and sweet potatoes. Thanksgiving always puts us in a good mood, and this year is no exception. It’s a chance to relax and spend time with family and friends, reflect on what we’re thankful for, and—best of all—eat delicious food. Whether your Turkey Day plans include a relaxed meal at home or a dinner downtown, you’ll want to dress the part. But given all the second helpings you’ll be having, you’ll want to choose forgiving pieces that still look chic. Lucky for you, we’ve put together four Thanksgiving outfits for women that are on-trend for fall (yet secretly give you a little extra room to breathe).
Modern and minimal
If your Thanksgiving plans this year include a dinner out with family or a more formal affair like dining with your in-laws, you might want to dress up a little more than usual. Keep your look sleek, modern, and minimal to make a smart impression. Try a figure-skimming sweater with skinny jeans and a neutral utility jacket. By keeping your outfit simple, you can make a statement with your accessories by adding a bold bag and boots.
Keepin’ it casual
When you’re spending the day at home with family and maybe even throwing on an apron to help put the finishing touches on the turkey, a relaxed outfit is key. You’ll want to choose pieces that are equal parts easygoing and comfortable. Create a laid-back look with a cropped sweatshirt, boyfriend jeans, and a pair of elevated sneakers. Add a pop of color with a bright bag and a heart pendant for a touch of charm—perfect for sharing stories at the dinner table with a glass of wine in hand.
Cozy and cute
If your Thanksgiving plans include snuggling up by a crackling fire after dinner, you’ll want to wear an outfit that feels as good as it looks. Think super-soft fabrics and oversized silhouettes made for lounging. So even if there’s a blizzard outside and the temps keep dropping, you’ll be living your best life indoors curled up on the couch. Try a soft-knit top, a pair of skinnies, and platform boots for a cute outfit that’s extra comfy. Throw on a fuzzy oversized sweater in a fierce print for a little extra something (and extra warmth, too).
While many of us are already forced to accept the drop in temps and the chillier weather ahead, we recognize (begrudgingly) that some are spending Thanksgiving amid spring-ier weather. The key here is to pick breezy pieces in lightweight fabrics that still have a fall-inspired palette. This way you’ll be covered whether your dinner table is located indoors or on the patio with a scenic view. Our idea of the perfect outfit? Wide-leg pants in a muted tropical print and a draped jacket, accessorized with a metallic necklace and leather crossbody bag.
