1. Layering plaid

Fall fashion is all about layers, and dressing for Thanksgiving is no exception. Bring out the boot socks and tall boots and layer them over your skinniest blue jeans and a cute plaid with a sweater the color of the season.

2. All black

The most classic of options is to wear all black. Not only is it slimming (which, let’s be honest, is a huge perk on the one day of the year that you stuff yourself silly) but it’s also sophisticated and always looks pulled together—even if you are not. #momlife

3. Party dress

Maybe you’re spending your holiday out on the town with your special someone. We love a fun swing dress because it’s not only super adorable but it is also extremely forgiving. Because, food.

4. Sweater over a skirt

Keep it feminine with a skirt, but also comfy and casual by adding a cute sweater on top. Some over-the-knee socks and tall boots tie this look together.

5. Oversized cardigan

We’re all about expanding waistlines on Thanksgiving, so some stretchy leggings and an oversized cardigan is basically the perfect outfit. This allows you to be comfortable and save room for that extra piece of pie!

6. Ready for anything

Going on a Thanksgiving adventure? This is the perfect look. Some Wellies, a plaid shirt, jeans and a coat keep you warm and casual and ready for whatever adventure awaits you!

7. School girl chic

If you’re feeling a bit more prim and proper, opt for some tights, a structured coat and a crisp button down shirt tucked into a flirty skirt. You’ll be sure to impress everyone at the holiday party!

8. Accessorize with a scarf

We love a good blanket scarf this season. Not only is it warm and cozy, but it also adds some interest to an otherwise plain outfit. The perfect plaid is just right for Thanksgiving, too.

9. Neutrals

When in doubt, grab your favorite black skinnies, ankle boots and a classic camel coat. Neutrals are perfect for fall!

A good knit sweater is ideal for Thanksgiving, and a fun pair of plaid pants adds just the right amount of interest that you’ll have people turning heads—and asking where they can get a pair!
