I can’t believe in less than a month we will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday. Whether you are spending it with family or the uncomfortable first holiday at the in-law, this is your guide on what to wear to a casual Thanksgiving Dinner. With one thing in mind, comfortable attire for the evening. For most of us as a first responder, we don’t get to spend every holiday season with family because we have to work. So if we’re lucky to get off we are just happy to kick off the holiday season with family, friends, and yummy food.
Whether you’re hosting at home, traveling or going to either relatives and friends for dinner you’ll want to dress comfortable and cozy. However, if you are going to the in-law’s house for dinner, you’ll want your outfit dressy and casual but most important COMFY. I compiled a list of ideas that are simple and can be easily created. These budget-friendly outfits will keep you fashionable, presentable and comfortable for your holiday dinner.
The main goal is to be comfortable but to also look stylish and presentable while enjoying Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.
If you live or will be traveling where the weather is chilly and looking for a more warm cover-up. However, your style is you can pull off the comfortable and cozy look. You can switch up your sweater variation, shoulder cut out or the relaxed fit or a vest with some jeans or tights. No worries because each look you create, will impress your friends and relatives and at the same time feel comfortable.
However, If the weather is more like a warm Indian summer, then you can pull off the t-shirt and jeans and some booties.
You want a more comfortable, casual yet stylish look, throw on a cardigan with basic tee and jeans. This is one the simplest but cute look you can also pull off on Thanksgiving Day. Depending on where you are, if it’s a warm climate you can wear dressy sneakers, strappy heels or cold weather boots. The results will be a cozy comfortable sophisticated look.
If your Thanksgiving Dinner is more dressy casual like visiting the in-laws, then styling a dressy blouse with jeans or tights will do the trick. I love this look, whenever I don’t want to get too dressed up but still look dressy and sophisticated this combination never goes wrong. Ladies tights and leggings are your BFF. If your family or your in-laws are the type that takes NO for an answer and shove food in your face, stick with the leggings. You would want to keep the button and zipper on your jeans intact and not popping out. If you know you are going to stuff your face (come on is Thanksgiving who wouldn’t) I strongly suggest not to wear jeans. You can add a scarf to complete the look.
You can add a blazer with a scarf and still look stylish yet sophisticated. Ladies if you are visiting the in-laws for the first time, the uncomfortable dinner you want to make a first impression. This combination will have you looking dressy and comfortable while pulling off the casual look. I suggest heels (pumps) to add a pinch of elegance and it will complete your dressy casual look.
Hope you get some simple ideas to dress this Thanksgiving Season. All of the look are budget-friendly and it’s simple and yet comfortable for your turkey day.
