A Guide To Casual Styling For Thanksgiving

Comfort is key during the holiday season, which can mean sinking into the couch with your favorite blanket and binge-watching TV shows. If you’re hosting a Thanksgiving party and need to look on fleek, though, you’ll want to do more than just throw on an oversize sweater and call it a day.

Here are some tips for making your Thanksgiving outfit work for you this year:

  • A cardigan. This is a perfect layering piece that can complement many different outfits. It’s also warm enough to wear outside during November in most places, so you can put it on over a tank top or T-shirt without feeling too chilly. If your cardigan has sleeves, roll them up so they fall just above the elbow. This looks especially cute with an oversize men’s button-down shirt underneath!
  • Wear layers. On a cold day like Thanksgiving, you’ll likely be indoors most of the time. By layering pieces of clothing that offer different degrees of warmth — such as a button-down shirt and a cardigan — you can adjust your level of comfort as necessary. Don’t be afraid to layer up: It’s better to be slightly too warm than too cold.
  • Accessorize! A simple scarf or necklace can make all the difference in how fashionable — or sloppy — an outfit appears. Scarves come in handy as impromptu blankets when you’re sitting on the couch; necklaces can help pull together an otherwise bland outfit.
  • Your choice of footwear can make or break your day when you’re running errands all day long. Go with boots that are comfortable enough for walking but still look stylish with jeans or skirts. Booties are another great option for women who want to keep their feet warm while they run around all day, especially if they have wedge heels or other added support.
