What To Wear On Thanksgiving



Though the turkey and stuffing may be the main attractions on Thanksgiving, it’s still imperative that you dress to impress. How are you going to claim superiority over your nemesis- you know, that cousin you have an unspoken rivalry with-if you’re wearing the standard college sweat suit? With these fashion tips, you’ll definitely be the best dressed diner at the table. (Photo)

The trick to being a style elitist this holiday season is rocking cute clothes that won’t sacrifice your overwhelmingly large meal. After all, Thanksgiving only happens once a year.

Although you’re still required to follow the “leggings aren’t pants rule,” I give you full permission to sport them at the dinner table. For a chic twist, pair your leggings with riding boots, an oversized cardigan and a statement necklace.

A shapeless dress is another way to ace Turkey Day fashion.  If your frock lacks a funky pattern, spice up your look with printed tights and a pair of black heels. Whatever you do, do not pull out that bodycon dress. You’ll regret it once your aunt presents her famous coconut cream pie.

Nothing says, “I’m fabulous and please pass the pie” than a maxi skirt. Undeniably chic and sure to hide your food baby, aim for a maxi skirt in a woodsy hue. Throw on a textured sweater and you have an amazing holiday ensemble.

Unless you only own skintight playsuits, the fashionable onesie is also a viable option. For a finishing touch, add wintry tights and a bevy of bracelets.

If your feast isn’t held at your own house, sport your favorite (faux) fur coat. Warm and lavish, you’ll make a sartorial scene the moment you enter the house.

As far as beauty goes, do me a favor and throw your hair into a ponytail, bun or braid. Although it may be a Thanksgiving miracle that your hair has successfully held a curl for over four hours, your locks will not look cute with bits of sweet potato in it. Disgusting, yet true.

Among all the other things you should be thankful for this year, don’t forget be thankful for your eternally spectacular style.

Happy Thanksgiving!
