Thanksgiving is coming up fast. What should I wear to Thanksgiving dinner? We have a small, low-key dinner with my sister and her family, but I still want to look fashionable and pulled together. Can you give me some ideas for Thanksgiving dinner outfits that are casual, stylish, and comfy? Thanks, Sue
Even though your Thanksgiving dinner will be small and understated this year, it’s nice to hear you want to celebrate in style. Life is too short to be frumpy! This Thanksgiving, seize the holiday spirit by saying no to sloppy sweatpants and boring slump-around clothes. Try these suggestions for Thanksgiving dinner outfits that are casual and classy.
1. A Sparkly Top
A low-key celebration doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Sweaters are always comfy, so why not wear one with some personality?
A sparkly top is always so festive this time of the year. This glamorous, brown glittery top with the front tie is stretchy and comfy. It’s perfect for a casual dinner when worn with a pair of jeans or black pants.

Add a pair of comfy flats for around the house, and you have a Thanksgiving outfit with a cool rock and roll edge.
4. Cozy Cardigan
Animal print + jeans is always a winning combo. This tiger stripe cardigan is warm and inviting, worn with a basic turtleneck and these sexy flare jeans. Be sure to wear booties or anything shoe with a heel to get the leg-lengthening effect of flares.
