Thanksgiving is a time to reunite with family members, share a meal, and give thanks for our blessings. It's also a great opportunity to showcase your style. Since we’ll be seeing family members who we don’t see that often, it's important to make a good impression, starting with your outfit.

Whether you’re a guest or a host, having an outfit you love planned out and ready to go will leave you able to focus on your loved ones and the meal. Want to look like “that girl” on Thanksgiving day? The best way to create an incredible Thanksgiving outfit is to incorporate the season’s colors, prints, and textures into your look while working with comfortable closet staples.

1. Fall Florals 

Florals are always a feminine option. And fall floral prints in autumn hues bring to mind the flowers of fall like chrysanthemums, daisies, and sunflowers. Look for ways to incorporate floral prints into your outfit, like in a dress or even a coat.

2. Autumn Toned Midi Dress

The midi dress is forever classy and feminine, a perfect option to wear to a family gathering. For Thanksgiving, choose a dress that’s in a deeper autumn tone like goldenrod, burnt orange, or taupe.

3. Little Black Dress

The LBD is always a safe and stylish bet for any special occasion. Like the little white dress, the little black dress can be dressed up or down depending on how upscale your Thanksgiving dinner is. 

4. Trench Coat

Both classic and trendy, the beige or tan trench coat provides not only warmth if you're situated in a cooler climate, but also adds chic sophistication to your look. Pair a trench coat with a coordinated top and skirt. 

5. Tweed

One of the most beloved fabrics of fall, tweed evokes the season with its textural and visual appeal. Add tweed to your Thanksgiving ensemble in the form of a light jacket or mini skirt.

6. Neutral Sweater Dress

The sweater dress, or a sweater set, is a trendy option, and a neutral color keeps the aesthetic clean. 

7. Plaid 

Another timeless fall print, and always Americana, a plaid skirt with a cozy sweater is a cute Thanksgiving look that can be either preppy or country.

8. Chic Layers

Pilgrim chic? Black and white make for a very New England chic look. A layered black jumper or blazer over a white blouse looks perfectly polished.

Closing Thoughts

To look like “that girl” on Thanksgiving Day, turn to classic pieces in fall’s most iconic color palette and prints. Dressing well will ensure that you feel beautiful and confident while reconnecting with family and indulging a delicious meal.
