Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Whether it is a low-key Friendsgiving or an elaborate Thanksgiving celebration with family, two things are certain: A big meal is imminent, and a festive outfit is in order. No need to fret about what to wear though—don one of these outfits and you’ll be raved about almost as much as the pumpkin pie.

thanksgiving-kate-upton

Laid-Back and Ladylike

Kate Upton, donned the perfect Thanksgiving-ready outfit. The simple-yet-stylish dark denim. The relaxed-yet-refined tweed blazer. The icing on the cake: her chunky black bracelets—such great conversation starters!

Comfortably Glam

Stun in Statement Necklaces

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but rhinestones are like your life-of-the-party college buddy. They’re loud, a little outrageous, and when clustered together on a necklace never fail to be the center of attention.

SN-main

Lina Soderstrom: Denim and rhinestones are a classic combination. The model gives the look a modern twist with a tailored blazer and shirt from GANT Rugger. Note how she buttons her blouse all the way up to better showcase the necklace.

SN-EvaMendes

All that glitters is not a statement necklace as Eva Mendes made evident with the vintage-inspired bauble that she designed and wore to the of launch of her New York & Company collection.

SN-Rochas

This stunner from Rochas’ F/W 13 collection is currently sold-out. But if you get your hands on one, it can be styled six ways to Sunday.

SN-AnnaWintour

Anna Wintour: If Vogue’s Queen Bee wears a look, you can trust it’s going to stick around for a while. She put a Park Avenue spin on the necklace by pairing it with a tweed suit during New York Fashion Week. And her younger companion proves the trend has trans-generational appeal!

SN-DriesVanNoten

The rectangular crystals on this Dries Van Noten F/W 13 necklace are offset by the thin silver-plated band. It’s ‘90s minimalism meets early ‘00s bling.

SN-Rihanna

Rihanna: Out on the VMA after-party circuit in New York, the singer’s rhinestone choker almost diverted attention from the plunging neckline of her Balmain Jacquard V-Neck Dress . An eye-catching accessory is a fail-safe way to spice up a little black dress.

Chunky costume necklaces are back in a big way this season and you can find the perfect one for yourself for under $100 with My Picks!

A/X Statement Necklace ($58), Asos Emerald Stone Bib Necklace ($36), Forever 21 Glam Bejeweled Necklace ($13), BaubleBar Maharaja Fringe Strand ($44), Mango Touch Faceted Stones Necklace ($60), Zara Crystal Drop Necklace ($30)

You’re a Stunner!
