Dinner Parties, Thanksgiving | 0 comments

More than just the turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving is about gathering and meeting up with family and old friends. It’s also an opportunity to clean up and show off your latest style. Thanksgiving dinners are often a formal affair, but because the times have changed, we’re now more flexible to accommodate more comfortable wear, especially when we know we have a big meal ahead of us. If you’re still thinking about what to wear to Thanksgiving dinner, we have you covered. Key in building your Thanksgiving OOTD is to add a bit of sparkle to match the season. With the cold weather, go for stylish layers you can mix and match and make sure to wear comfortable footwear. Anything that goes around your waist such as belts and accessories must be adjustable to accommodate all that food. Lastly, go for what makes you feel good, because at the end of the day, that’s what truly matters. Enjoy your Thanksgiving with this holiday appropriate pieces.
