10 Thanksgiving 2023 Outfit Ideas That Are Both Cute & Comfy

Thanksgiving is one of the coziest times of year. It’s a holiday that’s central to the season of togetherness with family and friends. Thanksgiving comes at autumn’s prime, and with a traditional feast and other fall activities, Thanksgiving is the ultimate holiday to give you that warm and toasty feeling. It also happens to fall during a time when everyone dresses in warm layers. With any event or celebration, looking the part can make you feel good while having a good time. Here are some Thanksgiving outfit ideas from TikTok that’ll help you dress warm and look good. 

Thanksgiving is the occasion of wearing your casual best, since you may be around people that you may have not seen in a while. It’s not uncommon to see someone make an extra effort in their appearance to make an impression amongst their fellow guests. Luckily, there is inspiration to help you go the extra mile in your wardrobe this year. TikTok is the go-to for finding inspo on the trendiest styles for any outfit occasion, which includes Thanksgiving. Finding the right seasonal attire for the holiday can totally be possible with these potential looks.

Comfy Chic

There’s always room to be comfortable, even for a nice occasion. Tops like sweaters can make for being comfy and cute. Pair your sweater with slacks or a knee-length skirt, stockings, shoes like loafers or sneakers, and jewelry to complete the look. Dresses made out of material like cotton will also keep you snug while looking cute. Don’t forget to finish your look off with heels, or if you’re really into a warm style, pair it with winter boots.

Leather Love

Leather works well in fall fashion, and Thanksgiving is a great time to wear it. Style any outfit with a leather jacket. Leather jackets can be a fierce complimentary piece to your overall look. There’s also the option to dress head-to-toe in leather. Wear leather pants and boots to go with your leather jacket. Top it all with a leather purse for an accessory of the same material.

Party In Patterns

Patterns can make a fashion statement even more than solids, as they really stand out in any attire. Animal print and styles that resemble it, like the dress in this TikTok by Mischell Davis, are trendy, and can be that pop of color or design to add the final touch to your look. Plaid can also go with anything, but especially with neutral-based attire.

Rock The Sweats

I say we all start a thanksgiving outfit trend of sweatpants 🦃😎

Everyone has heard of having a pair of eating pants during Thanksgiving. Let’s upgrade them to something cuter. Sweatpants and sweatshirt sets come in a variety colors, and are the perfect grab-and-go out attire for a last-minute outfit decision. Add a pair of sneakers and lots of jewelry accessories to finish the look. Lightweight sweatshirts and sweatpants made of stretchy material make for a chill and comfortable ‘fit. 


As an oldie but goodie, wearing denim is perfect for the holidays. There’s nothing like styling a pair of jeans with a sweatshirt, sweater, or a long-sleeve shirt. Take denim to the next level by wearing a jean jacket along with your outfit. Denim is special because it gives a rustic appearance, and it goes with the atmosphere and feeling of Thanksgiving during fall.


Don’t hassle with matching pieces when you can just dress in one piece. Jumpsuits are another grab-and-go outfit, and they have the convenience of being a full outfit where you can just slip one on and be ready from head to toe. Plus, jumpsuits like ruffled sleeved jumpsuits are casual enough for when you want to look good but not overdo it.


One of the simplest outfit pieces associated with fall, overalls are like a Thanksgiving staple. Like jumpsuits, your outfit is already ready with overalls — all you have to do is put them on. Pick a different color fabric for your overalls than the standard denim, like brown or a seasonal pattern to color-coordinate with the season.


If you’re alone on Thanksgiving or want an outfit idea that’s out of the box, pajamas are the way to go. Matching pajamas can actually be a great idea for Friendsgiving parties or super-casual Thanksgiving get-togethers. Pajamas can also be convenient if you’re home having a party of one during the holiday. These adult Thankful For My Family Thanksgiving Pajamas ($30, Amazon) are so adorable.

Gone Vintage

Vintage is in, and it’s so unique to wear for the holidays. Wearing fashion from decades’ past puts a fun spin on current fashion trends. Bell bottom jeans bring back the boot cut, and a bohemian scarf brings pizzazz to a monochrome outfit. Accessories such as stone necklaces add flare, too.
