Thanksgiving Dinner 2018
We’ve done posts on this before, but still every year the what to wear to Thanksgiving dinner question is a hot one. Probably because it’s one of those enigma events. You want to be dressed up, kind of. And you want to be cozy. And you for sure want to be comfortable because it will be an eating fest. But you still want to look put together, like you tried, but not like you tried too hard. See all those contradictions? That’s why it can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be.
There are a few elements that make an outfit a winner, winner, turkey dinner kind of outfit.
-Soft yet substantial fabrics (it is November after all, think velvet and cashmere, not linen)
-Forgiving waistbands (ummmm stuffing, enough said)
-Fun accessories or details (it’s a celebration after all)
What NOT to Wear:
-Bell sleeves (this is an eating holiday and you don’t want your sleeves stuck in gravy)
-Bandage/Bodycon dresses (again – it’s a marathon of stuffing your face, give your abs a rest)
-Your everyday pj’s or sweats – it’s a holiday and one of thankfulness. What you eat is not your everyday food and what you wear should be elevated a bit too – that’s what makes it special.
We’ve created outfits for a few various Thanksgiving scenarios… depending on how you and your family/friends celebrate…
