What to Wear: Casual Thanksgiving Ideas

With the exception of the two years I worked retail in college, Thanksgiving has always been one of my favorite holidays.  Each year, my mom would buy me a new sweater to wear to Thanksgiving dinner, and that tradition has stuck with me ever since no matter where I'm spending Thanksgiving.  This year, I'm spending Thanksgiving in Connecticut with my boyfriend and his family, so a sweater will be perfect since it's going to be cold!

Here are three outfits I've put together for y'all if you also have a casual Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Look One - casual dress, fur vest, booties

You may recognize this look from this blog post!  I'm in love with this dress because it's comfortable.  It's not tight, so you're free to eat as much as you would like or help in the kitchen in it.  If you're looking to add some glamour to your look, it also matches this hat perfectly.  

Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

Look Two - turtleneck, paperbag skirt, statement necklace or pearls, riding boots with boot socks

Turtlenecks are my new favorite thing.  I bought one Friday, wore it with jeans and a hat Sunday, and then recycled it to wear with pretty much the entire outfit above on Monday.

Look Three - Boho dress & booties

I am really loving all of the 70's influences on fall fashion!  I love bohemian dresses because they're loose and flowy aka comfy when you are eating lots of turkey and dressing.  The fringe boots I've picked out are so fun!  I have no idea when I would be able to wear them, but they are definitely on my wishlist.

What are your Thanksgiving plans this year?  Do you usually go super casual, casual enough to be comfy, or do you get all dressed up?

Happy Tuesday, y'all!


  1. I love the boho look. I really need to start planning my Thanksgiving outfit.

  2. I love the first and second looks the most.
    I will probably be wearing faux fur with a long sleeved dress.

  3. Thanksgiving in Connecticut sounds so dreamy...probably because I'm on a Gilmore Girls binge and desperately want to live in Stars Hollow! I love the outfits you put together. They're stylish & pulled together but also comfy enough to lounge around in prior to the food coma setting in. Have a great time up North, by the way! xx Merisa | Monogrammed Magnolias

  4. I love all of these looks but I really want to steal look number two! I adore turtlenecks as well, especially now because I hate being cold and I haven't yet adjusted to the cooler weather.

  5. This post reminded me that I need to figure out my Thanksgiving outfit for next week!! I am traveling home with my best friend this year, and having dinner with her whole extended family. Time to figure out what to wear- haha!! Thanks for the outfit inspo. :-)

  6. These are great!! I love the striped dress idea. Dresses like that are so classic, but are still a great option for adding a touch of excitement.

  7. Eek! I couldn't even pick a favorite because I'm in love with all three of these looks!

  8. These outfits are too cute! I am always a fan of comfy outfits for Thanksgiving (so you can eat, of course!)


  9. These are all such cute options!
    with southern grace,

  10. Great outfits! I never celebrated Thanksgiving until I got married (well, we did at school, but not at home), so it's super exciting for me to celebrate it! These past two years my husband's family dresses up, but not too much. More than everyday clothes, but not super formal. ;-) You've now got me thinking what in the world I am going to wear!

  11. Love all of these ideas! Can't wait for thanksgiving!

  13. Loving all the Turkey day outfit inspiration! I just love picking out Holiday looks! XO, Gracie

  14. I'm obsessed with the boho look! That dress with the lace sleeves is adorable, and I love it paired with the booties.

  15. Look Three is my favorite! I'm always a fan of boho-inspired looks.


  16. So perfect for thanksgiving! Love your vest!

  17. If I was celebrating a traditional Thanksgiving this year I would go for a look like #3! My family usually takes our Christmas card picture before our Thanksgiving meal so I'm always a little more on the dressy side.
