Whether your Turkey Day is a casual affair or a more elegant event, this holiday (that happens to be a favorite of mine!) is a wonderful foray into the start of the most festive season. Since you’ll be gobbling up all the deliciousness, you’ll want to be comfortable. But that doesn’t mean you can’t look chic!

For an outfit that will transcend any event, try a long-sleeve dress in the most classic colors: deep reds and burgundy. Pair will ankle or over-the-knee boots and gold jewelry. It’s an easy look that will go over almost as well as your family’s favorite stuffing.

If you’re aiming for a look that is fun and adds a little sparkle to the dinner table, play with pleats. Pleated skirts or pants in metallics paired back to cropped sweaters or solid blouses will look timeless with an edge. The metallic option is one that you can repeat throughout the holiday season – by switching out your top options, you can get creative and continue to keep the look fresh.

If you’d rather stay in something cozy for your gathering, opt for a sweater with an element of elegance. Ultra feminine details like beading, floral embellishments, and ruffles will make you a standout even when paired with jeans.

Whether you’re dressing up or keeping things casual, enjoy your time with loved ones, side dishes, and parades!
