Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas: Chic & Comfy Styles To Steal

Thanksgiving is just around the corner and although many of us ladies my be thinking about stuffing ourselves with as much turkey as possible **solemnly raises hand**, Thanksgiving raises a little problem. What on earth do I wear? Ahh… the thanksgiving outfit.. the answer to a possible moral dilemma of eating enough to food to make you look like the octomum.

Let’s be real here: you are not exactly going to be strutting your stuff down the streets of Beverly Hills with Lauren Conrad and co. Your fashion police will be your Mum, your Dad and perhaps old Aunt Maggie. But hey: Aunt Maggie deserves to be dressed up for too right?

Make that family home your runway girl! We show you 10 chic thanksgiving outfit ideas that will totally hide that extra slice of pie you indulged in!

Scarf & Swing Dress

Dresses make us feel like Princesses, but a bodycon number as tight as Kimmy K’s will not be particularly comfortable once you have indulged in three courses of home cooked goodness. Instead, opt for a cute swing dress and top it off with a printed scarf. We personally think that this one’s a little too outdoorsy for a homey holiday. Instead, keep it leafy and pop on the floral pure wool scarf.

The Poncho

Ah… we love a good poncho! As well as being super on-trend, these magical garments will hide that food baby so everyone will be none the wiser. As Thanksgiving is made for pigging out **om nom nom**, go for a longer length poncho and wear with slim fit jeans and boots. As tempted as you may be to team this baby with some baggy pants for some..ahem… extra storage space, doing so may make you look like a walking balloon.

We love the contrast between this rich mustard color and the leopard print bag. If there’s nothing at all big-cat like in your handbag collection, try tying our mixed print scarf around your fave bag instead!

Neutral & Knitted

This neutral combo is so freaking cute! The pleats make it a feminine and pretty look that Nan will smile at, whilst the cardigan adds a element of quintessentially Fall snugness. Layer on tights underneath to beat the chill. Finally, add casual burnished gold accessories for the subtle little cherry on top of this gorgeous outfit.

The Autumnal Print Clash

Although horizontal stripes are typically known for making us look wider, these slim stripes are perfectly clashed with the leopard print scarf. This draws the eye away from the waistline. However, if you are seriously worried about looking like a bloated Betty, vertical stripes are the way to go!

The solid black bottom half of this look is super leg lengthening and our old pal black is always there for us when we’ve eaten too much! Finally, the mustard jacket places it smack bang in Fall territory.

This look is all about that gorgeous print clash, so team your striped shirt with our pure wool animal print scarf.

The Denim Shirt Dress

If you’re going to be snug next to a warm fire, there’s no need to sweat it out in layers upon layers of knitwear! Go for simple and timeless in a shirt dress. If you are worried about been a little nippy, opt for a chambray or denim shirt dress. These both have slightly thicker fabric.

Pop on a printed scarf to embellish the look to perfection! We think that the multicolor abstract print scarf is a literal explosion of Autumn hues.

Orange

The Boho Florals

As total boho obsessives, we believe that bold florals and baggy shapes are perfect for year-round wear! An oversized boho print dress, such as this beauty above, is pretty and appropriate for a family get together. Plus: the shape ensures that you can totally go for that third helping of dessert!

We suggest that you leave the hat and sunnies out of this one! No matter how Fall-appropriate your hat is, it is certainly not appropriate for the dinner table!

If you want to inject some boho florals into your Thanksgiving outfit without going head to toe, try our floral paisley silk scarf.

Black

The Waterfall Vest

When it comes to bloating, a sleeveless waterfall vest is an instant saving grace! Flowing out at all of the right places, a waterfall vest will skim over any lumps and bumps, leaving your Thanksgiving pig-out not completely on show.

Team this stunning piece with an on-trend pair of slim fit jeans and a plain white tee. If you want to dress it up more, gold jewellery is a great way to do so.

It’s not exactly cold, but that wind is starting to bring a slight chill. Make the most of the lukewarm weather by re-purposing some Summer favorites. Believe me: you will have all Winter to wear that coat!

Give that Summer maxi dress one last whirl with some cute layering! Add an oversized cardi, or shirt and button up! Top with a floral print scarf to keep it light and breezy. If sandals are too chilly, switch them for cute ballet flats or ankle boots.

A pastel, floral scarf will compliment your Summer wardrobe, whist adding much needed warmth. We recommend the tropical floral scarf.

The temperatures are getting milder, so a jacket or blazer are a must! Long pants will also keep the chill at bay.

Make like a royal and copy Kate’s coral pants to add some uplifting color to your Fall wardrobe. Layer up with a nautical blazer and a suitably chic silk scarf. If the white tee is a bit too chilly, layer on a light jumper underneath your blazer.

Silk scarves and army blazers are a match made in heaven. The floral paisley silk scarf is the perfect embellishment for your favorite blazer.

Anyone else suddenly craving buckles now? 45 degrees is undeniably coat weather and what better way to ensure it look on trend than to go monochrome?

Margot layers up a plan top with a thick, black, longline coat and a buckled skirt. She adds a printed monochrome scarf for a little extra warmth. If 45 degrees can look this good, let that mercury fall!

Silk scarves can be wonderful for dressing up a wintery coat too. For Margot’s look, opt for a monochrome scarf, such as the mixed print scarf. This thicker scarf is sure to keep the cold at bay!

Faux fur jackets are an incredibly stylish way to keep warm. Opt for an oversized shape so you can layer up underneath without looking bulky.

Kate teams her faux fur coat with her signature black, slim-fit pants. She adds a pop of Autumnal color with a burgundy printed scarf. Layer grey-toned pieces underneath your coat to really let the scarf do the talking.

Burgundy is one color that is made for Fall! Combined the exotic print silk scarf with a grey scale look to channel Miss Moss.

Freezing is just around the corner, so layers are a must! Jumpers, thick, woolen coats and jeans ensure you look stylish and feel comfortable at the same time!

Emma Stone adds a stunning pop of color to her look by layering a geometric printed jumper under her camel coat. She half-hides it by a black scarf, leaving the tiniest pop of red to catch the eye.

This one is all about creating an optical illusion. Layer the solid color scarf in black over a printed, vibrant jumper to tone it down.
