What to Wear for Thanksgiving

- Fashion, Shopping

Winter Style gray dress, cashmere cardigan, boots, checkered scarf, gold watch

Here’s what I wore for Thanksgiving this past weekend with my family in Iowa. It was a great time, as it always is, but flew by way too quickly. I can’t believe we were almost there for 8 hours, it felt like only a couple (and yet 8 hour work days drag on…). Anyway, the best part about this outfit is I thrifted every part except the boots! My coworkers and I went to Goodwill over lunch on Friday and I ended up finding all of these pieces separately and realizing they went together for a very matchy-matchy outfit (minus my purple star and blue socks) and perfect as we were planning on asking my family to snap some photos of us for our Christmas card. So this thrifted Thanksgiving outfit is also now my Christmas card outfit!

Now, some more outfit ideas for what to wear on Thanksgiving:

A casual, yet sophisticated look for Thanksgiving, pairing a nice sweater dress and blanket scarf makes you look put together and is great for any family or friend photo opportunities.

If you want a super casual, yet chic outfit, opt for a nice sweater, jeans, tote and some cute loafers of moccasins (leopard print of course)! I will probably be wearing something similar since we aren’t doing anything too fancy for Thanksgiving this year!

Sweater // Jeans // Loafers // Tote // Necklace

 

c580x1024

If you are getting fancy for Thanksgiving, a floral print midi + sweater and a killer pair of heels makes the perfect outfit, no matter where you’ll be.

Sweater // Skirt // Heels // Clutch

If you are looking for something different, why not mix green, black and camel or create your outfit around a beautiful plaid skirt paired with oxfords! I love this color combination and it slightly makes me think of Clueless!

Sweater Cardigan // Tank // Skirt // Oxfords // Necklace

    I love this outfit and I love that it’s entirely thrifted. You would never guess! That scarf is amazing and so on trend right now. I have been looking for a good plaid scarf! You look awesome and I am glad you had a good Thanksgiving.

    I absolutely love this outfit! It is a really great look for you! I think I’ll be wearing something like that second outfit idea you posted for Thanksgiving, jeans and a sweater. It’s going to be a small gathering so casual is the way to go. :)

    A Gray dress or sheath and some Burgundy are must-haves for me for Fall. Love how you styled your dress. The plaid scarf and cardigan are beautiful.

    Love all the outfits you styled also, especially the first two. Great holiday looks, Rachel!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you & your beautiful family!

    Oh my gosh, Rachel, that outfit is one of the best ones I have seen you wear! I love all those pieces individually, but all together, they look amazing. I haven’t quite decided on a Thanksgiving outfit yet – my family is super casual and it’s supposed to be pretty cold tomorrow, so I may wind up in a tunic, cardigan, and leggings, haha.

    I never would have thought to pair this mustard color with grey, but I really like the outcome! Very fall looking.
