Glamazon Guide: Outfit Ideas For Every Type of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is in less than two weeks and I am frantically trying to figure out where 2015 went! Don’t you feel like you were just decking your halls with boughs of holly and counting down the clock on New Year’s Eve? I know my credit cards are still recovering from the last holiday season and yet here we are. *deep sigh*
Thanksgiving is always super nerve-racking for me. Not only do I get volunteered to cook side dishes (I may or may not have ruined last year’s sweet potato pies) but I have to worry about an outfit that’s cute and forgiving. I want to be comfortable so that I can dig into some ham without growing any food babies. But I also want to be stylish and make a lasting impression on visiting relatives that I haven’t seen in awhile.
If you’re like me and trying to take the struggle out of finding the best look for Turkey Day, here are a few tips:
1. Stick to darker shades. Hues such as black, brown and navy camouflage your tummy after a big meal and create a streamlined, pulled together look. I personally love being festive and choosing a fall color palette like dark mustard, green and burgundy.
2. Opt for loose-fitting pieces. Oversized sweaters, shirt dresses and tunics are the perfect options because they blend comfort and style effortlessly. You can also pile layers on top (think blazers or cardigans) for when the temperature fluctuates throughout the day.
3. Have fun with eye-catching accessories. Choosing bold add-ons is such a great way to add personality to your look without drawing unwanted attention to your midsection. Try statement handbags, graphic slip-ons or even veiled beanies.
Check out outfit ideas for every type of Thanksgiving:
1. Thanksgiving With Your Family
Nothing beats a pair of leggings that will expand to fit your body no matter how much you eat. Pair them with flat over-the-knee boots, a vibrant sweater and a statement handbag for a laidback vibe:
You probably want to show off more personality for dinner with friends. Keep things simple and chic with distressed boyfriend jeans, a trendy cross-body chain bag and graphic flats. Layer a bright sleeveless vest to add a pop of color:
3. Thanksgiving With Your Boyfriend
For dinner with your boyfriend or the in-laws, a black tunic dress is a casual option that’s still stylish. Open-toe booties, a striped cape and a red lip will transform the outfit from sophisticated to sexy.
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? What are you going to wear (and eat)? I’m dying to know!
