Shop the Look: DVF sweater, earrings, purse, boots, black jeans

The Statement Sweater

Just because it’s a low-key meal doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Big sweaters are in, so why not wear one that’s got some personality?  This artsy, graphic sweater can be worn with leggings or skinny jeans and will make you look confident, and relaxed.

Add big earrings and a fabric blocked bag to polish off the look! And of course, there’s nothing more comfy than riding boots.



Shop the Look: white sweaterdress, gray sweaterdress

 A Cozy Sweater Dress

Sometimes you don’t feel like pants, but a dress seems too stiff, so a nice inbetween is a soft sweater dress.  It’s a fantastic way to look glam and feel relaxed all at the same time.

Pair your sweater dress with some great jewelry and tights or even leggings if your dress is short,  for an easygoing look that’s also fashion-forward. Flats are the perfect shoe choice to keep it casual.



Shop the look: poncho, black turtleneck, black jeans, brown purse, suede booties  , bracelet

A Turtleneck and Poncho

Visiting family on Thanksgiving? Arrive in style at your holiday dinner ( or pop out to do some Black Friday shopping) in a sleek turtleneck, knit pants and poncho.

A casual bag and cute booties top off this sophisticated, easy-going holiday weekend look.

So there you go. Enjoy yourself and have that extra piece of pumpkin pie!

    These are great suggestions for Thanksgiving Day outfits. Relaxed fit knit dresses or tunics over tights or tapered stretch waist pants are perfect to look good and feel you can still breathe after dinner. Just be sure the room temperature won’t be too warm.
