Thanksgiving is exactly two weeks away, and I’m sure most of you have plans that involve sitting around a table with family and/or friends. In my case, Thanksgiving is traditionally held at my aunt’s house, which is nearby, so I don’t really have to travel. My mom and dad aren’t close unfortunately, but my aunt, uncle, cousins, and grandma are. My hubby and I attend every year, and in addition to family, we see some other friendly faces that we only catch a few times a year. I like to look nice for Thanksgiving, and usually err on the fancier side, wearing a dress of some sort. That’s not to say a casual Thanksgiving look is out of the question…there’s something very comforting about being cozy while you eat and drink yourself silly. But either way, I like to plan my outfit in advance. This year I got to thinking about how to incorporate some major fall trends into my Thanksgiving outfit. Contrary to popular belief, trendy doesn’t have to be tacky. It’s easy to incorporate seasonal styles in a way that’s chic and timeless. So here are some ideas that would be easy for anyone to recreate.
Key Trends: Plaid, Monochrome Grey, OTK Boots
The plaid sweater is cozy buy festive. Dress it up with a blingy, fall-propriate necklace! Monochrome grey is vey current and layering grey over-the-knee boots with grey leggings is slimming and leg lengthening. This look is comfy and cute, with the addition of key accessories to tie it together. Try a bold red lip that will complement the grey and the plaid!
Key Trends: Dark Florals, Boho
This fall floral dress from Bebe is both pretty and forgiving. It can be nipped at the waist with the included sash belt, but you don’t have to tie it too tightly if you plan on eating a lot! The print is a little bit boho and pairs beautifully with these knee-high wine colored boots. Opt for statement earrings to add some sparkle. I absolutely adore this Chloe bag that carries through with the boho theme. It’s super chic and elegant but also pricey, so you can always look for a similar style instead, like this one from Nasty Gal.
