Thanksgiving may look a little different this year—but no matter where you are or what you're doing, a good outfit will always make you feel like your best self. For your Thanksgiving festivities this year, whether you're eating takeout turkey with cranberry sauce at home, enjoying the real thing with your family, or hosting a Friendsgiving potluck, you'll need an outfit that looks stylish, has a little give, and reflect the joyfulness of the holiday. Here, we've put together a range of Thanksgiving outfits to inspire you this year. Just plan out your outfit before the tryptophan—the amino acid in turkey that's responsible for your post-dinner nap—kicks in.
Bring some color to the dinner table with a pair of bright trousers. Balance out the look with a neutral sweater and wool coat. This outfit is a sure way to show the family you don't belong at the kids' table.
Swap out your usual pendent necklace for a silk scarf, a chic and fashion-forward way to accessorize any outfit.
If you're lucky enough to be somewhere warm for the holidays, try a linen shift dress paired with a sweater tied around your shoulders to give you the cozy fall feels.
When you're skilled enough not to spill red wine or cranberry sauce, opt for a winter-white dress with exaggerated shoulders. Pair your look with dainty accessories and a gold heel for a more formal look.
Make your boots the focal point of every conversation with these Khaite zebra boots. Aunt Betty will be asking you where she can find them rather than what your relationship status is this year.
Imagine showing up to Thanksgiving dinner with your cousins looking this chic. Coordinate with a color palette and work grandma's driveway like it's your own personal runway.
Show off your city girl style this holiday with this super-simple but cool skirt-boot combo.
Swap out your usual satin skirt for a more edgy yet grown-up leather pencil skirt. This skirt is worth every penny and will last you years to come. Pair it was a printed oversized cardigan and turtleneck to keep you warm.
Vintage-esque, edgy, and family-approved. Trade in your pastel floral mini dress for a dark and whimsical version, perfect for the colder months ahead. (This one's even on sale!)
Show off your legs but keep it holiday-appropriate with a mini skirt and everyone's favorite Gucci tights.
Add a little extra something to your go-to jeans and oversized sweater look. Grab yourself a more fitted sweater with cutouts to show some skin, and pair it with high-waisted straight-legged denim. This outfit calls for minimal effort with maximum results.
What's easier than a matching set? It's an instant outfit; all you have to do is accessorize. Find yourself a plaid set that can be worn together or as separates.
For added coverage, you can lengthen your top to past the hips. The more fabric for ruching over the evidence of a meal well enjoyed.
You were going to wear this anyway, right? Swap out the slippers for slingbacks (a fair trade in comfort, really).
And for maximum food-baby-obscuring, go big and loose. Wear a monochromatic pieces for a more streamlined effect, and sleeves pushed up to prevent things that aren't poultry from being dragged through the gravy.
If your plan is to ball out, try a cape, which seems to be showing up on our favorite street style stars more and more these days.
If your event is on the casual side, make your comfy, stretchy loungewear feel expensive by finding a coordinating set that's fitted to keep it from looking frumpy.
