Dressed to the Nines: Holiday Edition

Dressing for Thanksgiving is my second favorite pastime, falling behind Fourth of July, simply because of my affinity for red, white, and blue apparel. Thanksgiving dress is one of the easiest because of the time it falls in, seasonally speaking. This is the time where the weather is still agreeing with us, allowing for more creativity in the looks. You still have time to wear skirts, short sleeves, and add scarves and boots for a holiday inspired look. I found looks on Tumblr that I'm absolutely lusting over to wear for our family's day.


Thanksgiving style to me is effortlessly classic and put together. These two looks are classy and easily assembled with garments already found in your closet! The first look is a tweed skirt tucked over a sweater and belted at the waistline. Adding a statement necklace and some boots is a perfect way to keep you cozy and classy for dinner. The second look can be worn in chillier weather. A white pant is timeless and adding the button down under a slouchy sweater looks modern and put together all at the same time to be comfortable enough after you're done eating. This outfit can be dressed down with boots or flats for a more casual gathering.

Since the weather will still be nice for some of the country, the ability to rock shorter clothing without tights or sleeves is still an option! I absolutely love pairing dresses with boots for in-between weather; adding a vest or a light sweater will be the perfect layering to keep you snuggled up during the festivities. Button downs or sweaters can be tucked into skirts to keep you warm but not sacrifice looks. Also, pull up some socks over the tops of your boots to add definition, or wear some chunky blocked heels for a more dressed up event!

For a more casual Thanksgiving dinner, you can pair black pants or jeans with a simple sweater or a button down to keep things effortlessly simple. Doing your hair and make up in an exaggerated way can be all the work you need to look gorgeous for the night and bring the outfit from drab to fab. Adding some simple accessories like a scarf, long necklace, or a hat can be addition enough to pull the look from casual to special occasion.

For the super special occasion dinner events, these two looks are the start to a classic sophisticated look to get your family talking about something other than your grades. The first look is so holiday trendy; adding a midi tulle skirt and a sweater will take you to holiday glamor without any fuss. Adding some heels and a small necklace is all you need to take this look to the next level. The second look is pairing a patterned sweater tucked into a chiffon maxi skirt. The maxi will make your legs look much longer and the sweater gives it more of a holiday vibe, needing nothing else because no one can see your shoes anyway! These looks can be done in any pattern or any color palette because of the styles and fabrics they are made in and they are appropriate for nicer events and dinners during the holiday season.
