Best Outfits for Hosting a Memorable Thanksgiving

Make your Thanksgiving memorable with an outfit that's stylish and comfortable. Whether your holiday style is formal or casual, there's an outfit waiting for you at Lands' End. There are many options to consider when shopping for an outfit to wear during your Thanksgiving celebration, from dresses and skirts to jeans and jeggings.

Welcome Guests in a Holiday-Worthy Dress

If you love a classic look, consider a mid-length dress and a pair of low pumps. Although it's a formal look, it's also relatively comfortable because you're not dealing with a too-short or too-long skirt length or shoes that are hard to walk in. You may want to opt for a short-sleeve dress in case the temperature inside gets warm; Lands' End has short-sleeve women's dresses in an array of styles. Scoop neck dresses have a casual yet elegant look, and collared shirt dresses offer a vintage-inspired vibe.

When it comes to choosing a dress color, consider something in a brick red or burgundy tone for a festive holiday look. Another option is classic black, which can be dressed up with accessories or dressed down by tossing a denim jacket on top. You could even go with a dress that has a pattern or print, which gives a slightly more laid-back look than a solid-color dress. As an alternative to a dress, consider a skirt and turtleneck combo. Lands' End has turtlenecks in various materials and colors that pair well with midi and maxi skirts.

Opt for Casual Comfort with Jeans and a Sweater

Another option for Thanksgiving is a sweater-and-jeans combo, both comfortable and polished. Opt for a pair of skinny or straight leg jeans for an on-trend look, topped with a cozy sweater in your favorite color. There are cashmere sweaters and cardigans to choose from, which impart an upscale touch to even the most casual pair of jeans. You'll also find cable-knit sweaters that have a traditional look. If you feel like the outfit is a bit too casual for your Thanksgiving celebration, add a few accessories. A pair of hoop earrings or a stack of gold-tone bangles can impart a sophisticated touch to most any casual outfit.

The right shoes can also go a long way toward making your denim and sweater outfit dressier. A pair of high heels is an elegant accompaniment to most any style of jeans, and the higher the heel, the dressier the look. A pair of stilettos can turn the most casual sweater and jeans into a holiday-worthy outfit, but you can also opt for a pair of kitten heels or low pumps.

Wear a Tunic and Legging Combo for Your Thanksgiving Meal

You could also consider wearing one of the women's tunic tops at Lands' End with a pair of leggings for a look that's stylish and comfortable. The great thing about the tunic-legging combo is there are so many possible mixtures. You can pair printed leggings with a solid-color tunic, or go the opposite way and wear solid leggings with a printed tunic. This is definitely a more casual look for Thanksgiving, but as with the jeans-and-sweater look, you can dress it up with jewelry. A pair of riding boots is an on-trend finishing touch for this laid-back holiday outfit.

Another footwear option for this type of outfit is the pull-on shearling boot. A pair of boots with a fur or faux fur trim imparts a trendy look, and they also help keep your feet warm and cozy. If you prefer a sleeker look, you can even pair leggings and a tunic with a pair of heels. If you want to keep the outfit casual, all you need is a comfortable pair of sneakers.

Choose a Loungewear Outfit for a Relaxed Holiday

If you're the type who prioritizes comfort over fashion, why not wear loungewear for your Thanksgiving holiday? For an outfit that's as comfortable as flannel pajamas but a little more daytime-appropriate, consider a pair of loose-fitting sweatpants and your favorite T-shirt. You could even go with yoga pants and a sweatshirt, which is stylish enough for a casual gathering yet comfortable enough for a day of relaxation. One option is to choose more than one outfit for your Thanksgiving holiday. You could wear a formal outfit like a dress or skirt for the dinner portion of your holiday, then change into loungewear to socialize and relax with family and friends.

There are no rules when it comes to choosing an outfit for Thanksgiving. Some people like to dress up, while others choose to go casual. The right outfit for your fall holiday is the one in which you feel most comfortable and confident. If you feel good about what you're wearing, you'll be more relaxed and better able to enjoy your holiday celebration.
