Thanksgiving is…tomorrow?! Already? I don’t know about you but this year seems to be whizzing by faster and faster. What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year? What’s your OOTTD (Outfit of the Turkey Day)? For those who don’t have time to shop for new holiday wardrobes, here are some easy looks with pieces you may already have in your closet! If not, you can always substitute something similar that you do own. For example…
The Comfy Cozy. When creating this set, I totally had the post-eating feeling in mind. You know, the point where you’re almost at a food coma? Definitely one reason to be thankful for leggings. Plus, the oversize cardigan helps cover any food baby! Substitute: any solid, oversize cardigans. Continue layering with a solid colored undershirt and add texture with a knitted scarf or a printed scarf. Scrunched socks with boots merely give a more elevated fall look rather than wearing just leggings.
Coats are becoming more than just outerwear but an actual fashionable piece to wear. I like to take advantage of the cute coats and switching them up before having to result in the thick, winter jackets here in Michigan. Even though you’re wearing jeans, wearing a laced top adds a slight formal touch in light of the holiday spirit. Substitute: no lace? Try a peplum or your basic black sweater and finish off with a statement necklace.
I remember when sweater dresses made their debut and there were mixed reactions. Thanks to the rise and non fall of leggings, sweater dresses are here to stay! This is another take on a “comfy cozy” Thanksgiving. Substitute: The beauty of fall/winter is layering. Take a long, over-the-butt non or short sleeved top and layer it underneath one of your favorite regular sweaters. The high-low contrast in pieces creates a fashion-forward appeal.
For those who are attending a special, formal Thanksgiving meal. You can never go wrong with a chic dress! Keep it simple by choosing up to three colors to work with and have fun with accessorizing. Statement necklaces and a matching clutch are always safe and never sorry. Substitute: No long-sleeve, embossed dress such as this one? Wear any dress you do have and wear a cardigan over it. It’s so tempting to want to throw a scarf with your cardy, but stick to your jewelry for the formal look. Feel free to style your hair up or down for this one, too!
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving! Despite all that’s going on in this world, we all have something to be thankful for. God bless!
