Year after year, it becomes more astonishing how quickly time passes by, especially when it comes to the holidays. If you’re like us, the imminent shopping, parties, and meals are exciting, but they’re also a bit overwhelming. Thanks to this author’s outfit anxiety, however, the Who What Wear team buckled down and scoured the web to come up with amazing Thanksgiving ensembles we hope you can replicate based on your aesthetic and scenario.
Whether you’re staying at home with your large, rambunctious family or jetting off to spend the holiday in Europe (this author in particular is doing just that!), we’ve got seven easy and stylish options for you to peruse—and of course, shop!
See below for seven Thanksgiving outfit ideas from the Who What Wear team.
"I know this may be unpopular, but I'm not a huge fan ofTthanksgiving food. Sadly, no matter how many times I request "guac-giving," I am overruled. This year, we're keeping things small, which means style-wise I'll be going for the fairly casual, likely jeans a turtleneck. While I don't yet own a leopard coat, I've got my eye on one, and I have a feeling it will add just enough punch to make my look feel at least a little celebratory. (You're welcome, Mom.)"
"We're spending Thanksgiving at a restaurant because many of my family members' houses in Louisiana recently flooded. I plan on dressing up a little more than usual since I actually have to leave the house this year. A pink coat feels festive, and it's often quite warm in the deep south in November, hence the midi skirt."
"Giorgia Tordini is one of my favorite street style stars, so I'm not surprised to find my dream Thanksgiving outfit from her. My family is fairly casual for Thanksgiving, so Tordini's flat mules would fit in perfectly. Even though I generally dress down, I like to introduce at least one more dressy element. The luxe fabric of the skirt accomplishes just that. The only issue might be the extra-long sleeves trailing through gravy!"
"Our Thanksgiving is always obnoxiously huge with around 25 people in total. In other words, it's loud but so fun. Since the setting is just at my aunt's home, attire is pretty casual. This year, I am looking forward to wearing printed wide-leg pants (for obvious reasons) with a thin turtleneck and statement shoes like these gold loafers."
"I dress up for a solid hour or two on Thanksgiving (just enough time to take family photos and enjoy the home-cooked meal), so I'd wear something similar to this look: a slimming black turtleneck and a comfortable skirt or trousers on the bottom. After we eat, I'm jumping right back into my comfortable pajamas for some solid TV and couch time with the fam."
"I'm really into miniskirts at the moment, because I feel like they're an easy way to look like you care without overdoing it. Plus you can wear them with literally any top-and-shoe combo. For Thanksgiving, I'll be pairing my mini with ankle boots and a sweater because it strikes the perfect balance between being ladylike and comfortable!"
"I'm spending my Thanksgiving in Paris this year, so I want to dress it up a little with a statement sweater and cute heels. I'm cooking dinner for myself and a friend, though, so a comfortable (and flattering) pair of jeans is essential."
