Thanksgiving is this week and we’re beyond excited to celebrate with our friends and family, as well as stuffing our faces with delicious food. This long awaited holiday is sometimes the only time of year you get to see some of your extended family – grandma wants to know all the details of your life, your crazy aunt wants to hear about your boyfriend that doesn’t exist (or you may be meeting your boyfriend’s family for the first time), your uncle is yelling at the TV for his favorite football team. We all know things can get interesting during the holidays.
Regardless of what you have planned for the holiday, you’re going to want to look good! Whether you’re watching football with the family or having a formal dinner, we have a Thanksgiving outfit for you.
The brick colored thin knit sweater by Wishlist is perfect for a casual family thanksgiving. If your family likes to kick back, drink a few and watch football on Thanksgiving, this is your outfit. You will be comfortable, but trendy. The brick tone really gets you in the fall mood and is flattering on all skin tones. Accessorize with a wrap choker necklace and a cozy scarf that you can take on and off.
Styling tip: To dress up the look, try wearing this top tucked in the front with a black leather skirt or pencil skirt and heels for a night out with your girlfriends.
If your family celebrates in a more formal way, this is the outfit you NEED. This dress fits loosely in all the right places, so feel free to have seconds… or even thirds. This dress by Everly has the perfect floral print. Floral prints can be hard as they can be overbearing and busy. This chic and feminine best selling dress has a charcoal background that adds a fall feel to the soft print. Wrap up in the cozy and warm vest/shall for a nap after you eat. Accessorize the dress according to how dressed up you want to be. We paired it with pastel colored chokers, but fancy statement earrings or a long chain necklace will do the trick if you need to be more formal.
Styling tip: This vest can be worn in multiple ways with a variety of outfits. Pair it with jeans and a white long sleeve, black pants and black top, slacks, skirts or dresses. It will go with anything and will soon become a staple in your closet.
This is the perfect outfit for a Friendsgiving. The striped top by Ellison is a classic style made to perfection. It is soft and loose fitting without being too flowy. Pair it with black pants or leggings and over the knee boots. A statement piece like our maroon hat is perfect for taking your outfit from casual to trendy. This outfit is comfortable and chic, and most importantly effortless. Your friends will shower you with compliments when you show up wearing the perfect ensemble.
Styling tip: If you don’t wear hats, wear a statement necklace or earrings with color to brighten up the look.
Laid Back Formal
Nervous about meeting your boyfriend’s family for the first time? We’ve got the outfit for you. He may say you don’t need to be dressed up, but how awkward would it be if you show up in jeans and everyone is dressed up. This outfit is the perfect balance between laid back formal, and formal. You can get away with either, as this sits right on the cusp. This charcoal high neck knit dress is flattering, comfortable and appropriate. The cut pattern on the arms make it unique, and the high cinch waist hits at the perfect spot. We paired the dress with some knee high black boots, a little black belt with a tassel and a simple but chic silver chain necklace. This outfit shows that you are stylish and put together, without being the girl trying to steal all the attention.
Styling tip: For future use, pair this dress with a blazer for work wear, or with black tights and heels for a Christmas dinner. With it’s high neck, it’s flattering to wear your hair pulled back, so try a low loose bun or side braid.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Biggest Little Fashion Truck family!
