I know, I know – it feels like fall just started and here I am already sharing Thanksgiving outfit ideas! But it’s one month away and the early bird gets the cute Thanksgiving outfit, right? Or something like that! There are a ton of different styles that you could choose depending on where you are going so I thought I would round up 10 outfit ideas to wear for Thanksgiving that feel comfortable but look polished and put together. From casual to dressy and everything in between, hopefully you can get some inspiration for the day.
Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas
As someone who LIVES for chic athleisure, this is my preferred look for Thanksgiving. I personally love a matching sweat set because it looks polished and pulled together while still being insanely comfortable. Choose a pullover that has some unique details like the above knit with the large collar and it will instantly elevate a relaxed look. Opt for a slimmer fit to your sweatpants or joggers and if sneakers aren’t your shoe of choice, go for a fuzzy slide or ugg style boot.
Midi Sweater Dress with Boots
A sweater dress is always a great option in the fall but a longer midi/maxi style is a tad dressier for a more formal Thanksgiving dinner. Most sweater dresses are stretchy so you will still be comfortable and knee high boots are a great shoe option to pair with a midi dress.
Sweater Dress and Knee High Boots
Nothing is more quintessential fall than an oversized sweater dress and boots. The shorter length makes the look more casual and would be a great option for a friendsgiving or casual get together. While this dress would work with ankle boots or flats, I definitely think a knee high boot is the best shoe option for a short sweater dress. But skip the tights if it is still warm where you live – bare legs with this look is perfect.
Slip Skirt and Turtleneck
The versatility of a slip skirt is unmatched and will always be a safe option for a holiday event. The silky material and drapey fit makes it look dressy but can easily be worn more casual as well. I refer to a simple black turtleneck, slip skirt and boots as a foundation outfit because it can be worn alone or styled with almost any outerwear option. It’s also a great base that allows you to mix and match accessories to easily change up your look. This is one of those outfits that you can wear year after year and it will always look current and stylish.
Wrap Top and Jeans
The neckline on a wrap top or bodysuit is flattering on almost any body type and looks great worn with jeans, trousers or even a skirt. If you want to keep things more on trend for right now, style them with a pair of wide leg jeans. I love these cropped wide leg jeans because I can wear them with heels or flats depending on my mood.
Graphic Sweatshirt and Trousers
I’m a huge fan of a comfy graphic sweatshirt and also love styling it with a pair of trousers versus leggings or jeans. The trousers elevate the look and can easily be worn with sneakers, loafers, ballet flats or even a small kitten heel. Add some statement jewelry and a fun bag to made it holiday ready.
Sweater and Jeans
When all else fails, a sweater and jeans never lets me down. I can wear this combo to a ton of different occasions and it’s always an easy outfit to put together. In addition, these black cropped jeans are a fall/winter must have for me and go with almost any sweater style I have in my closet. If you want to dress a simple pair of jeans up for a Thanksgiving gathering and keep it a bit sexy, choose a sweater that shows a bit of skin. For instance, a chic off the shoulder style is always elegant or a keyhole cutout which could make the look a bit more edgy yet still polished.
Oversized Sweater and Leather Leggings
I never need an excuse to wear my faux leather leggings and wear them ALL fall and winter. My two favorite styles are by Spanx and Commando (here is a review comparing the two) and either would be great for Thanksgiving. I reach for my Commando faux leather leggings when I want to be a bit dressier because the finish on them looks more like real leather. Throw on a cozy oversized sweater to finish the look – I prefer one that is long enough to cover my butt but not too long that it looks sloppy. Dress the look up with heels or keep it low key with ballet flats.
Blazer with Leather Pants
I love leather pants all season long, but they are especially suitable during the holiday season. The holiday season is always a time to push the limits on fashion and wear the fabrics, textures and colors you may not normally gravitate towards. To offset the leather pants, style it with a simple blazer or tweed jacket which will add some softness into the look.
