What to Wear for Thanksgiving: Outfit Ideas for Girls and Guys

It may be too early to start mashing the potatoes and cooking the turkey, but there's one piece of the Thanksgiving pie you can start thinking about now: your outfit. Whether you're heading to a fancy dinner party that requires a swanky outfit to match or just keeping it casual in the kitchen, take cues from the Thanksgiving outfit ideas for women and men below.

For a dressy Thanksgiving

Does your family go all out for the holiday? All in Favor’s midi dress is perfect for the ladies—it looks effortlessly chic, and the ribbed knit fabric is comfy enough to survive an all-you-can-eat meal. As for the gents, throw on this plaid Italian wool blazer from Bonobos, and you’re sure to be best dressed.


For a cozy Thanksgiving

If you’re going for a cozy yet stylish look, bring out the capelets and cardigans, paired with not-too-tight shirts and sweaters underneath. Cute low-heeled ankle booties finish off the women’s outfit, while guys will look cool in flat Chelsea boots.


For a casual Thanksgiving

Keeping it low-key this year? High-waisted leggings and an oversized sweater make up the ideal comfy Thanksgiving dinner outfit for girls. Meanwhile, dudes can throw on Everlane’s Slim Fit Jeans (they have some stretch in them) and a quarter-zip sweater.
