Thanksgiving Style Essentials

Janet Lanman, Style Reporter


The holidays are just around the corner, complete with friends, family, and most importantly: food. Here is a guide of what to wear to make sure your pants still fit after all that turkey and pie.

For Women


Essential Cable Sweater Dress in Marina, $19.80 at Forever 21

With or without the belt, forgiving sweater dresses will keep you comfortable even after those second helpings. Add a pair of sparkling flats or tights and your favorite fall boots.








Flared Lace Skirt, $29.95 at H&M

Spending Thanksgiving with your boyfriend and his family? A flirty, lace skirt with an elastic waist can be paired with a button-down blouse or an oversized sweater to balance out the skirt’s femininity.








High-Waisted Ikat Print Pants, $19.80 at Forever 21

These high-waisted pants feature an elasticized waist and a pattern to distract the eye. Add a simple black top, a statement necklace, and pumps for a trendy yet polished ensemble.







For Men

Merino V-neck sweater in red heather, $49.95 at Gap

For a more casual look, wear this festive sweater with jeans.









Tweed Blazer, $49.95 at H&M

A blazer will dress up your outfit (read: Mom can’t say you’re a slob). Pair with a colorful button-down, or a V-neck sweater on top of a crisp, white oxford.








Cinder vintage cord in relaxed fit, $75.00 at J. Crew

Rich in color, these laid-back cords sit below the waist to ensure you won’t need to loosen your belt. Pair with a neutral shirt and a pair of loafers.
