Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Dressing for Thanksgiving can be tricky. After all it’s a holiday and we want to look a little nicer than normal. In light of the goblets of wine and heaping plates of turkey to be enjoyed, here are the perfect outfit ideas—not too casual, not too fussy, and just right for Turkey Day.


Say Yes to Comfy Pants

In preparation for one of the most gluttonous evenings of the year, we choose our Thanksgiving pants very carefully. Extra room is a must, adjustable waists are preferable, and finding a pair that looks the least like sweatpants is high up on the list too. These printed silk pants that Emma Stone stepped out in strike the perfect balance of everything we need for the holiday.

Encrusted Rouleaux Top, $138,, Jamie Bow Pumps, $329,, Tibi Star Fields Printed Crepe Track Pants, $325,

Go Monochrome

This monochrome outfit Olivia Palermo wore is ideal for the holiday season: The slim pencil skirt is a classic, and the chunky sweater allows you to play with proportions (especially if you adopt the “fashion tuck”). Bonus! With a monochrome canvas, it’s your chance to showcase your favorite jewels.
Get The Look
M Missoni Classic Pencil Skirt, $161,, Equipment Crewneck Sweater, $347,, Juliet & Company Etoile Necklace, $62,


Stand Out in Basic Black

Jennifer Aniston always does us proud. Here she paired a simple top with a mini skirt that has intriguing details. This trifecta may have been overwhelming in any other color, but it’s spot-on in black.
Get The Look
Ocaria Heels, $69.99,, Miniskirt With Front Pleat, $59.90,, Jersey Top, $9.95,

Elevate Your Denim

Leandra Medine does denim so well. Follow her lead and pair your jeans with a dressy top and slip into some chunky heels. The top will make you feel festive, and if you choose a peplum style like this one, you have plenty of leeway to eat anything you want! Pass the pie please!
Get The Look
MiH Paris Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans, $238,, Wrapped Faux-Suede Booties, $34.90,, Iris & Ink Tokyo Silk Crepe de Chine Peplum Top, $110,

Layer Leather

By layering a classic button-down under a leather shift dress, blogger Zina Charkoplia has given us a way to wear said leather dress to Thanksgiving dinner, as opposed to the evening plans we generally feel it’s suitable for. Opt for flats and minimal jewelry to keep the look simple and appropriate.
Get The Look
Felted Wool Penny Loafers, $238,, Essential White Boyshirt, $64.50,, Cutout PU Leather Dress, $38,

Go for an Elegant Classic

If your holiday is a more elegant affair, try Emma Watson’s classic look. Stick to solids in neutral tones, but style a silhouette that consists of a long, chic skirt and a crisp button-down. Instead of piling on the jewelry, find one great necklace and stick with it.
Get The Look
By Malene Birger Tareza Silk-Blend Maxi skirt, $575,, White Button-Down Shirt, $29.50,, Pilgrim Gold Torq Necklace, $47.36,

Get Festive in a Mini

The holidays are a time to celebrate, so why not pull out your favorite party skirt like Poppy Delevingne did here? If you don’t want to go too dressy, pair your festive bottom with a graphic T-shirt or sweater to balance everything out.
Get The Look
Mesh Circle Skirt, $49.95,, Etre Cecile Am I French Yet Oversize T-Shirt, $125,, Target Roana Pointed-Toe Flats, $29.99,

Happy Thanksgiving!

3 Work Wardrobe Wonders

Everyone’s had those mornings, the ones where you’ve tried absolutely everything on in your closet, you’re running ridiculously late, and you still have absolutely nothing to wear. It’s times like those that demand super-easy pieces that go with everything. Essentials that you can throw on without thinking and know you’ll look great. I call them wardrobe wonders—and every fashionista needs at least a few of them in her closet. Here are my three favorites that will have you going to work in style!

A Black Jumpsuit


A black jumpsuit doesn’t have be reserved for evenings only, especially if you choose a tailored style. Wear it to the office with pared-down classics like a trench coat and ladylike pumps, or get creative and layer it over a button-down. Either way, it’ll cut your dressing time down. One and done!

Get the Look


SPLENDID $198.00


REVOLVE clothing $154.00

A Flippy Skirt


Fit-and-flare skirts are universally flattering; the flounce balances hips and thighs perfectly. Plus, they’re insanely versatile—for a downtown look, try one under a slouchy sweater with ankle boots; for a more polished vibe, wear with a slim turtleneck and heels.

Get the Look


Ann Taylor $98.00



A Cool Suit


Think of your suit as a really amazing multitasker—you can wear the pants and blazer together and look instantly put-together, or you can wear the jacket and pants separately with literally anything. The outfit options are countless. Just be sure to buy a suit with a really modern fit—either slim-fitting or purposely slouchy.

Fall Essentials

It’s time to turn to the more playful, fun aspect of dressing! Trends and Accessorizing! So without further ado here are my favorite essentials for fall that will guarantee you style star status!


JOA Two Toned Sweater, $88, available at Shopbop; Proenza Schouler Long Sleeve Cropped Crewneck, $595, available at Proenza Schouler.

A new version of the traditional nubby sweater makes its way back into our closets each season. For fall, we’ve been feeling the speckled, marled pullover that has a made-by-hand vibe!


River Island Grey Fedora Hat ($50)
You’ll wear this hat well into winter, promise.


ASOS Oversized Scarf ($34)
An animal-print wrap feels luxe.


ili Leather Crossbody Bag ($69)
An oxblood bag is timeless!


Forever 21 Life In Progress Jacket, $34.79, available at Forever 21; Burberry Oversize Parka With Check Wool Warmer, $1395, available at Burberry.

The great thing about a fall parka is that it can easily become your winter parka with the addition of a lining. Wear it with the sleeves rolled up and easy dresses for the beginning of fall, and with thick trousers and knits when the temps really start to drop.


Fred Perry Knitted Jersey Bucket Hat ($76)
Ever since you saw Rihanna wearing a bucket hat, you knew you needed one.


Chic Nova Pure Color Sleeveless Business Suit Vest, $31, available at Chic Nova; Public School For J.Crew Earliblaze Vest, $178, available at J. Crew.

Everyone needs that one layering piece that instantly makes anything they’re wearing appear more legit. For fall, it’s the formal waistcoat, which can dress up a simple tee or dress, or dressdown a more formal frock.


Ted Baker Ayef Opulent Bloom Printed Scarf ($65)
Give your look a fresh finishing touch with this printed scarf.


Front Row Shop Linen Trousers, $62, available at Front Row Shop; Avelon Progressing Pants, $400, available at The Dreslyn.

If you don’t already own one of these roomy, baggy trousers, now’s the time to get some! Roll up the cuffs yourself or get them tailored to hit right above your ankles. Then, pair them with anything. Seriously — party tops, sneakers, booties, blazers, crop tops — it all works!


Ted Baker Karah Faux Fur Hat ($90)
Never say no to a (faux) fur hat!


ASOS Wide Waist Cincher Buckle Belt ($29)
This belt is chic and sexy!


ASOS Faux Fur Multi Stripe Scarf, $67.70, available at ASOS; Shrimps Pink Faux Fur Pablo Clutch, $295, available at Avenue 32.

British brand Shrimps started a phenomenon with its Seussian “fur” pieces straight out of a storybook. This season, don’t even pretend that your fuzzy isn’t faux, and go for pieces in unnatural colors, like pastel pink, lime green, and electric blue.


Cheap Monday Clip Hair Clip ($29)
Too lazy to do your hair? Got you covered!


Express Mid Rise Slim Flare Jeans, $39.90, available at Express; Acne Studios Pop Trash Jean, $350, available at Steven Alan.

Opt for denim that looks worn-in, not worn-out. A rip or two is totally believable — anything in double digits just seems like a frivolity!


United by Blue Braddock Backpack ($88)
There are so many ways to wear a backpack this fall.


Silence + Noise Button-Down Shirt, $69, available at Urban Outfitters; Secai Pleated-Back Poplin Shirt, $520, available at NET-A-PORTER.

It’s time to bring the “business in the front, party in the back” philosophy to our blouses. We’re seeing loads of button-ups deliver a surprise hit of skin in the back, whether through sheer panels, a deep slit, or clever cut-outs. Wear them with high-waisted trousers and skirts, and never tuck ‘em in.


River Island Red Plaid Hair Bow ($10)
Voila! An unexpected way to wear plaid this season.


ASOS Felt Fedora Hat ($38)
If you still haven’t invested in a fedora for fall, try this one.


Erin Templeton Double Wrap Obi Belt ($30)
Kimono belts are the next big thing, you heard it here first.


ASOS Denim Jacket in Vintage Wash, $63.85, available at ASOS; Golden Goose Black Shearling Jacket, $1995, available at SSENSE.

This ’70s staple is making a comeback as this season’s version of the wear-with-everything layer. Paired with denim, a leather moto, or just by itself in a fleecy zip-up, shearling injects a bit of insouciant cool!
