Thanksgiving is one of the holidays I look forward to most. It’s always so much fun gathering with friends and family in the comfort of great food. Besides meal planning, deciding what to wear is often the most stressful part of it all. Dress codes can span across super casual to formal and you never really know what that might look like. To save you the headache of the planning the perfect Thanksgiving outfits, I’m sharing some of my favorite looks that are a breeze to recreate. Each look is sure to attract compliments while keeping you comfortable as you indulge.
Chunky Knit Sweater & Neutral Jeans
A chunky knit sweater is probably one of the most classic Thanksgiving Day essentials ever. If you’re wondering how you can make a basic sweater feel new, simply swap out your classic blue jeans for a neutral pair – or even a coated one. You can then dress this look down with combat boots or dress it up with heels.
Sweater Dress & Knee High Boots
A sweater dress will forever be one of my holiday go-to’s. There are so many ways to style it to achieve a perennially chic outfit. This year, I’ll be trading my typical OTK boots for a structured, knee-high pair when it comes to thigh-grazing hemlines. Just pop a sharp coat on top and you’re good to go!

Casual Sweater, Jeans & OTK Boots
If you’re attending a Friendsgiving or plan to do some post-Thanksgiving shopping, keep things casual with a black sweater, comfy jeans and over-the-knee boots. It’s simple but provides maximum comfort whether you’re active or idle.
Tweed or Plaid Dress
Not every Thanksgiving dinner is about lounging around in your comfiest looks. If you’ve got a nice dinner to tend to or are meeting the parents for the first time, a tweed dress strikes that perfect balance of trendy and classic. The result is so simple yet impactful even with minimal shoes and accessories.
Festive Sweater & Faux Leather Pants
Another take on the cozy knitwear look is to pick a statement sweater with festive details. Think fringe, exaggerated collars or visible textures. Pairing it with some faux leather pants always makes for an effortless yet streamlined ensemble.

Shacket & Lounge Pants
Thanksgiving is one of the best times to indulge in your favorite foods, so the more comfortable the outfit, the better. Nothing gets comfier than a shacket with your favorite lounge pants. I could see myself wearing tights, sweatpants or knitted trousers.
