Even though I shared My Holiday Gift Guides, I’ve not skipped over Thanksgiving…Today, I’m sharing What to Wear for Thanksgiving!  I also have great Thanksgiving content you can find on the Holiday Inspiration tab on the menu above.

I typically gravitate toward dresses and dressier looks but cozy and comfortable is also great!  So with that in mind, I’ve shared several looks whether your Thanksgiving plans involve dressing up or keeping it casual.  The links to each look are below and there is a boutique with more inspiration, too!

Great Dresses to Wear for Thanksgiving

Camel Shift Dress / Similar Brown Leather Knee High Boots / Similar Clutch

I have loved this great dress from day 1!   It has been a Fall/Winter staple dress for me and is perfect for Thanksgiving.  Stylish, comfortable and forgiving (wink, wink!)  I have worn it over and over.  It’s also on my Carmel-by-the-Sea Packing list I shared a few weeks ago.  It was perfect for that trip.

Faux Leather Havana Dress / Best Brown Boots / Brown Handbag Wrap Belt 

This is the faux leather dress you need!  It was one of my most-worn dresses for Fall and Winter last year and I’ve already worn it several times this Fall. The fabric is the most luxurious, faux leather you will find anywhere! It is so buttery soft and the texture makes it look like the finest leather.  It is incredibly hard to believe it’s not real leather!

Teal Ultrasuede Dress / Wicker Lady Bag with Cognac Orchid Trim / Similar Ribbon Trim Slingback Heels

I’ve loved wearing this teal ultra suede dress.  It is super soft and has great stitch detailing that looks super luxe.  It is also great paired with boots as I shared in Lately on LTK last week.

Similar Farm Rio Print Dress / Black Heels 

This colorful dress is a great option for a dressier Thanksgiving at home or at a country club or restaurant.  You could also easily pair it with boots.

Similar Sweater DressSimilar Dior Clutch / Similar Brown Leather Knee High Boots

This gorgeous sweater dress is everything I love. Chic, simple with beautiful sleeve detail.  The one I’ve linked is very similar.  I’ve paired with pretty brown boots and a Dior Clutch.

Black Long Sleeved Dress / Black Woven Sandals / Similar Givenchy Mini Bag

This easy dress is perfectly forgiving for Thanksgiving!  The light fabric is great for warmer climates and for sitting around the fire in cooler temps!

Great Tops for Thanksgiving

Similar Emerald Green Top / Favorite Flare Denim (Fits TTS) / Similar Sandals / Similar Gucci Clutch

I love a statement top with jeans.  This emerald green top caught my eye and is perfect for Fall and the holidays.

This Faux Leather Top is another classic favorite.

Cozy Sweaters for Thanksgiving

Ivory Turtleneck Sweater / Light Wash Straight Leg Denim (Fits TTS) / Ballet Flats

This cozy sweater is still available in a few sizes.  It’s so soft and I love the gold button detail on the side.  It comes in other colors including a gorgeous red that is perfect for the holidays!

Black Vneck Cashmere Sweater / Luxe Faux Leather Midi Skirt / Black Heels / Similar Black Clutch

This gorgeous cashmere sweater and faux leather skirt are a beautiful option for a dressier Thanksgiving and perfect for entering the holiday season!

Drop Shoulder Cashmere Sweater / Faux Leather Pants / Similar Brown Heels / Similar Gucci Clutch

This luxe cashmere sweater and faux leather pant pairing is perfect for a dressier Thanksgiving get together.  The sweater would also be great with your favorite pair of denim for a casual luxe combo.  Both fit TTS.

Similar Quarter Zip Sweater /Similar Faux Leather Skirt / Similar Boots / Similar Handbag

This creamy cashmere feel sweater to pair with a faux leather mini skirt is a great look for Thanksgiving.  You can find more cozy sweaters here.

Similar Turtleneck Sweater/ Flare Denim / Similar Shoes

A slim turtleneck and a favorite pair of denim is a go-to Fall/Winter combo for me.  Perfect for a casual at home Thanksgiving dinner.
