Where has the time gone? The leaves, once green, are now gleaming golden in the Fall sun. The chill in the air is giving way to the happiest time of the year: Holiday season.
For some of us, dressing for the holidays is made easy. Christmas is all about red hues and cozy cable knits. The New Year is marked with silver tinsel and sleek blacks. Thanksgiving isn’t so easy.
You may be asking yourself: Do I wear elastic waistbands to make room for the extra piece of pie? Do I even bother to accessorize? How casual is too casual? All valid questions, but the only thing you should be stressing over are the awkward questions coming from across the turkey platter. As this annual dinner holiday looms, don’t let your anxieties about what to wear lead you astray. This should be a joyous occasion where you look and feel your best.
Think about it: When the day comes, you will roll out of our beds to feast with our closest family and friends. Whether you dream of being the Beyoncé of the family or you want to keep it classic, sweatshirts and leggings won’t cut it. Comfort is key, but don’t let that limit your wardrobe. Whether you prefer cozy, casual, or elevated, the balance can be hard to strike for a cramped evening with the opinionated aunties— but don’t worry, our friends over at &OtherStories have got you covered!. Without a doubt you will reign supreme as the Best Dressed cousin!
Aesthetic Shopping Guide
In a last hurrah before freezing temperatures, Thanksgiving is your pre-winter opportunity to play with lush textures, neutral colors, and cropped lengths. If your dream is to stay snug with a plate of pie on the couch, opt for light knits and relaxed silhouettes. You’ll definitely be getting looks, but not because you're in pajamas.
Denim is a fool proof staple for the captains of casual. With a variety of cuts and washes, the world of jeans is your oyster. Don’t fall flat: play up your look with fun accessories and pops of color. For sure your outfit will eat!
For those of you who pledge allegiance to Beyonce’s “I woke up like this” verse, none of us are surprised you decided to stun for dinner. Be dressed to impress with no waistbands in sight! These dresses have got you covered (even for your sneaky trips to the dessert table).
