14 Outfits For You To Wear To Your S/O’s Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the best time of year to get together with family, have a bite (or many) to eat, and relax by the fire watching a football game after a whole days worth of fall fun.

But for those attending their significant other’s family Thanksgiving celebrations for the first time (or the 100th!), it can be pretty intimidating. Not sure how their family functions work? Should you wear a turkey shirt to celebrate? A formal gown to impress? Sweats to feel comfy all day long?

If you’re stuck in the situation where you can’t seem to figure out what outfit you should wear this Turkey Day, look no further. Here is a list of 14 outfits you can wear to your S/O’s Thanksgiving celebration. Not too fancy, but nice enough to give off a great first impression, here are some outfits for you to replicate this year…

1. A Sweater Dress

You can’t go wrong with a sweater dress as your thanksgiving day outfit. It’s super comfortable and effortless; just throw on a pair of booties, knee boots, or even sneakers and you’re all set. And if you’re feeling the need for something more you can customize with a belt or a scarf. But the sweater dress alone will allow you to look super cute and stylish and like you aren’t trying too hard. A sweater dress is a great middle ground to wear to your S/O’s family day.

3. Colorful Cardigan

The best part about fall and Thanksgiving time is the colors. The changing colors of the trees, the bright orange pumpkins and the crispy yellow corn. These are all colors you can adopt for your fall outfits. Wearing a colorful cardigan to Thanksgiving is comfortable, celebratory and a great way to layer up.

4. White Pants

Whoever said you can’t wear white after Labor Day is lyyyinggggg. A nice winter-white or off-white pant is a totally acceptable outfit choice for Thanksgiving. Pair them with that colorful sweater we talked about and some booties and there you go… you’ve got yourself a 100% Thanksgiving fit.

5. Poncho Sweater

Comfortable, chic, and perfect for layering- a poncho sweater is a great spin on the classic knit. Wear it with literally anything for one of the best fall and Thanksgiving outfits of all time.

6. Layered Dress and Sweater

A shirt-dress, t-shirt dress, or any other casual piece is great to layer underneath a sweater this Thanksgiving. Remember to wear a sweater short enough for the dress to peak out underneath, but just loose enough for it to seamlessly fit over the dress.

7. Corduroy Skirt

Talk about totally fall. Corduroy is the perfect thick material to keep you warm. Pair your corduroy skirt with some tights or high boots and a sweater on top. Plus, corduroy often comes in earthy tones, perfect for Thanksgiving outfits!

8. Down Vest

Another layering option, a down vest is a great addition to fall outfits. You can keep it unzipped to allow your favorite sweater to peak through underneath, or you can zip it up to keep warm when walking around in the fresh, fall outdoors. A neutral or muted color down vest can pair with any fall outfit and still look really fashionable.

9. Overalls

If your S/O’s family is a little more casual, overalls are a great outfit option. Wear them over a long sleeve tee or a sweater; and stay comfy all day in the denim one-piece.

10. Beanie On Top

Beanies are a really fun way to accessorize fall outfits. Having a bad hair day? Beanie. Cold? Beanie. Feel like wearing a beanie? Beanie. You can choose a feminine beanie with a poof on top or a more simple and general beanie without. Either way, beanies are a fun and festive way to accessorize this fall.

11. Festive Fall Skirt

A ribbed or knit skirt is great for taking your fall outfits to the next level. If you want to dress up a bit for Thanksgiving, a fall-time, midi skirt is your best bet. Grab your skirt in a festive color or anything you feel comfortable in. Pair it with a loose sweater or something a little more fitted.

12. Oversized Blazer

Dressing to impress this year, I see. If you want to look totally professional and put together for your significant other’s family, go for an oversized blazer to keep your fit professional but also super stylish. Style the blazer in any way you want- over a dress, with a sweater and jeans, belted or loose. Whatever you choose you’ll be sure to make a bold and confident statement at the family gathering.

13. Oversized Sweater

Comfort is key for many of us on Thanksgiving. Worried about all the pumpkin pie you’re about to eat fitting into that way-too-tight belt of yours? Don’t worry… just don’t wear one! Instead, pair an oversized sweater with some leggings or another simple pant. No matter what you wear on the bottom, a cute and chunky sweater will scream ‘Thanksgiving celebration’.
