Whether you are hosting your own dinner or are traveling to a loved one’s, planning out your Thanksgiving look takes time and consideration. You are still in a festive mindset, so you want to look posh with your selection, but the excessive eating can lead to some serious discomfort. Well, we have you covered. Here are some ideas for what to wear to this year’s Thanksgiving dinner.

Bundle Up

There’s nothing like a cozy sweater to make you want to dive into some warm comfort food. Style some of fall’s best colors together with the help of this Madewell Windowpane Turtleneck Sweater. It’s classic but sophisticated print makes the fall staple exciting again. Plus, it is so soft and breathable, which is a necessity on turkey day. Pair it with black jeans and over-the-knee boots to create a smart ensemble you won’t want to take off at the end of the day.

Classic Cardigan

Will you be running from one Thanksgiving to the next this Thursday? If so, you’ll want to have layers you can throw on and off as the day progresses. Instead of carrying around a bulky coat, opt into the cardigan sensation that has taken the fall by storm. Choosing a warm option like J. Crew’s Ribbed Shawl Cardigan will help you look put-together while keeping you cozy all day long. Sounds like a win-win to us.


If you are a stickler for classic items, your wardrobe needs this vest. The White House / Black Market Faux-Fur Vest is the perfect layering piece to dress up any of your go-to fall dresses. Its neutral colors and cooler tones will complement the rest of your pieces while also making a statement about your style. And, it has a satin lining, so it will feel great against your skin. Throw it on as you are walking out the door and get ready to be asked where your friends can snag one for themselves.

Flowy Feels

Stay snug this Thanksgiving by embracing the poncho. The chic outerwear favorite screams fall while also keeping you comfortable all day long. Picking up one like this Over and Out Silver Poncho from The Impeccable Pig will really give you that casual yet chic look that’s perfect for spending time with loved ones. Throw it over a shift dress or an all-black ensemble so the color really pops. Or, you can pair it with a pair of fun leopard booties to combine two seasonal trends together into one great outfit.
