It’s time to plan the perfect turkey day outfit. Whether your get-togethers with family are are fancy gatherings or an informal affair, the key is to look cute and comfortable while feasting! Here are three outfit ideas for three types of Thanksgiving events.


Semi casual is a step above casual. It’s a polished comfortable look. It’s easy yet put together. Think khaki pants, a knit set or pullover sweater. A nice button down shirt and dark denim jeans. This look from J.Jill is a perfect example of a semi casual dinner look with a classic step-hem tunic, ponte knit pant, simple accessories and stylish flat shoes.


Glam looks are for the adult invites, with friends for Thanksgiving cocktails or for large family gatherings with place cards and menus. The fancier the better, but make sure the look is comfortable! Chico’s carries a great cheetah print midi dress as seen here paired with an obi belt and short boots. Add evening jewelry, and a red lip for an extra touch of glam.


The popular outfit choice for Thanksgiving is casual. Not a lot of fuss when dressing casual for this occasion. Opt for cozy oversized sweaters for pre-Thanksgiving activities like family football with relaxed fit jeans. Tommy Bahama’s open cardigan with a fun stripe print is perfect for the occasion. The plush, chunky knit will have you feeling right at home, while a chic cut and pockets will make this the go-to sweater for every day.
