Comfy & Chic Outfits For Thanksgiving Dinner

Even though we all say we won’t overeat at Thanksgiving dinner, we know we will. Honestly, would it really be Thanksgiving without overstuffing ourselves with mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie?—I don’t think so. While wearing sweatpants would be the most practical attire for optimal feasting, it’s also nice to look our best at dinner. While Thanksgiving is primarily a time to be thankful and surrounded by loved ones, it’s also a time for new Instagram opportunities. These three outfits are sure to have you looking your best while also allowing you to be comfortable through the entire day. 

The Casual Family Gathering

If you’re just spending Thanksgiving at grandma’s surrounded by your closest family, opt for leggings. You can easily dress them up with a nice sweater and a cute pair of booties. This is the perfect fall getup, while also being super comfortable.

The Fancy Dinner Party

If your Thanksgiving plans involve a fancy dinner party or meeting your significant other’s parents at an upscale restaurant, a midi skirt is a great way to go. This one with an elastic waistband won’t keep you from enjoying dinner. Paired with sock boots, this look is super chic and makes you look really put together.

The Friendsgiving Crowd


If you’re just celebrating with friends at their apartment or at a restaurant, a simple but classy outfit is your best bed. Friendsgivings can be tricky because you want to look super cute while also not overdoing it. A jumpsuit like this one with an elastic or adjustable waist is perfect for that turkey day dinner.
