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.

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.

How cute are these little fellas? Turkeys are an integral part of Thanksgiving, so what better way to pop them on your dining table, than by getting the kids involves in some arts and crafts? These turkeys are made out of leaves and nuts, which also reminds the little ones about the true historical roots of Thanksgiving.

If you want to go totally gobble-dy-goop (see what I did there), make these table friends out of felt and pom poms so the kids each have one to take home and keep.

Once you have your turkeys assembled, use them as a centerpiece by dotting them along a table runner. We think they would look right at home on top of the hawthorn leaf table runner.

Pumpkin Trees

This idea combines two quintessentially Fall elements and mushes them together in a pretty unique way! This stunning and fun concoction is relatively easy to make: all you need is fir-cones, tall glasses and faux harvest vegetables. Fill your tall glasses with lentils for an extra Autumnal touch and add a handful of twigs. Hang faux mini pumpkins off the twigs as you would Christmas baubles. Surround for an aurora of Fall veggies and a few twigs. Whether you opt for faux veggies, or the real deal, pile them high and keep them running down the center of the table for a fun statement!

Add more natural textures with the shimmery spiral place mats and top with cute, Fall-themed mugs to keep it warm and lighthearted.

Simply add a pair of googly eyes to a pine-cone and add a folded, kite shape piece of card for the beak. Next, get them to drawer around their hand to create a DIY turkey tail. Finally, get them to realize what they are truly grateful for by asking them to write what they are thankful for on the turkeys tail.

These cuties would look great along the Thanksgiving table runner and will make the kids feel incredibly proud of their handy work! Line the turkeys up along the jacquard floral table runner and smile at what your children are grateful for!

Wooden benches and seats can look a little bit cold for Fall. Turn up the heat and snuggle up with cozy cushion and blankets. This combination of rustic neutrals and faux squashes will make a lovely comfortable corner for your Thanksgiving guests to relax after dinner.

Our Touch

When choosing cushions for your Thanksgiving decor, you may be tempted to go for typical oranges and burnished reds. Although these are undoubtedly Autumnal, rustic beige and cream are far more versatile. Add orange with real pumpkins instead!

3. Thankful Board

Whether you have family visiting from interstate, or you have just your immediate family popping round for dinner, this board is a wonderful way for you all to indulge in what you are truly thankful for.

Cut out leaves from colored paper, and give one to each family member for them to jot down what they are grateful for. Pin the leaves to a board for a unique addition to your home that will ensure you don’t take everyday things for granted! Plus: When the kids are whining about not having the newest X Box, you can totally show them this!

Our Touch

Make this activity extra Fall-appropriate by placing your cut out leaves in an old tissue box adorned with our hand painted floral tissue box cover. DIY-ing a piece of ‘garbage’ is well in the nature of Thanksgiving, whilst the saffron red tones will add an Autumnal touch to any surface.

4. Simple Tablescape

We are all for easy and laid back, so rest assured that this tablescape has no ice sculptures or ridiculously oversized turkeys carved out of wood. Although this wooden and creamy concoction may be simple, that certainly doesn’t make it any less stunning. Woven placemats and fresh leaves make it luxurious without being too flamboyant. An abundance of earthy textures and harvest vegetables will ensure that your family will embrace the true meaning of Thanksgiving.

Our Touch

If the above layout is a little bit too simple for you, you could always jazz it up with a border printed table runner. Square placemats will also make more of a statement than round placemats under round plates.

5 Harvest-Themed Thanksgiving Tables

With our children’s Halloween costumes once again thrown into the depths of our attics, our attention has turned to the next national Holiday: Thanksgiving. Although that perfectly cooked turkey and Mum’s famous pumpkin pie may be at the top of your priority list, why not create a warm atmosphere with a food-themed table center?

After all, the true meaning of this holiday is to be thankful for the harvest, so why not put that idea literally to the center of your Thanksgiving table? And with Autumnal berry tones and seasonal vegetables, bringing the true meaning of Thanksgiving to your table is both stylish and easy.

Luscious Berries

Great for adding a little warmth to the late November chill, this Autumn berry themed table center consists of a garnet and deep orange palette.

Begin by highlighting the center of your table with a deep red table runner. The Hand Embroidered Table runner in Scarlett red will highlight both the red and orange tones of the berries.

Now it’s time to add your harvest-inspired decor! If you are lucky enough to get hold of real berries: go for it! After all, they only have to last you the one day! Put your bunches of berries in metal vases of random shapes and sizes and scatter along your table runner. Dot candles in between for that warm glow.

For plates, use a combination of metal and orange to blend beautifully with your table center. For that extra wow factor, layer red serviettes in between the layers of plates. Alternatively, you can add an equally beautiful pop of red with these Embroidered Leaf Placemats.

Pumpkin Party

Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween! Bring this bountiful Fall-time favorite to the center of your table this Thanksgiving!

This look is all about the harvest platter, so keep your table runner neutral. The Sari Print Table Runner in silver features subtle hints of burgundy flora, which would compliment your center piece beautifully.

To create your bountiful center, take a wooden crate or planter. Create a base layer of leaves, bunches of berries and various Fall flora. Then add the stars of the show: the pumpkins! Opt for a random selection of sizes and colors and spread them equally throughout your planter. Dot cream-hued candles in-between for a beautiful shrine to the Autumnal Harvest.

I hope you like pumpkin soup: you can totally eat these after Thanksgiving!

We love the leaf embellished fabric bunches on our inspo photo! Re-create it easily by scrunching up our Floral Placemats, adding some leaves and tying with raffia. Plus: you can re-use these placemats for their literal use at a later date too, your guests will be none the wiser!

Turkey Treat

Why not stare at some cute little turkeys while your gobbling your dinner? If you enjoy arts and crafts, these little critters can be easily created using brown-toned felt, pom poms, googly eyes and pipe cleaners. Or you can take the easy option and search the one dollar store!

Prep your Thanksgiving table with a white table cloth, such as the Ornamental Embroidered table cloth in beige.

Embellish your table with brown-hued place mats. The two toned placemats will add a touch of sophistication to your cartoonish layout.

A Faux Vegetable Platter

Take a platter plate and top with a plethora of faux pumpkins, squashes and orange candles. Sit the platter plate between two tall candles and feel the Thanksgiving glow!
