Whether Thanksgiving is at your place and you’re the chief-cook-and-bottle washer or you’re going out to visit friends or family, you want to look polished and pulled together, even if your Thanksgiving celebration leans a little more to the casual side. If you’re wondering what to wear, here are three casual dressing ideas for Thanksgiving weekend.
Leggings + Sweater + Mules
Leggings are the ultimate casual comfort pant but there’s a fine line between looking chic in leggings and looking frumpy. I’ve written about this a lot and you can find more details here but one of the tenants I adhere to is that it’s important to have a top that covers your bottom, like this spruce green, tie-sleeve pullover. Longer in the back than it is in the front, this is a great sweater for leggings and skinny jeans and it’s a great price-point too. Read the rave reviews online. (It runs big so you may want to size down.) I’ve added sleek loafer mules to the mix but you can just as easily substitute booties or riding boots.
Sweater Dress + Riding Boots
This next look is one of my favorite fall and winter looks, a classy sweater dress with riding boots. Throw in a scarf – I’m mad about this plaid one – and you’re good to go. Easy, peasy.
Skinny Jeans + Poncho + Booties
This last look is a good example of how to do easy elegance. At it’s core, this look is simply jeans, a t-shirt and booties with a poncho thrown over top. But what makes this look special is the sophisticated individual elements. Take the poncho, for example. From the color (and colorblocking) to the pockets to the fringe, this one has some unique details that give it maximum style. You can easily toss on your go-to black booties but by swapping them for this beige pair that complement the color of the poncho, you suddenly elevate the look. Likewise your bag. This burgundy hobo with gold detailing is modern, chic and picks up beautifully on the burgundy in the poncho. And the best thing? It looks way more expensive than it is! All of these individual pieces are lovely in this outfit but will play well with tons of other items in your wardrobe. Those are the kinds of versatile things you should always be on the lookout for.
