How to look both cute and comfy at your Thanksgiving celebration

Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to come together with friends and family and remind each other of all the things you are grateful for while sharing a meal.

Like any other holiday celebration, you tend to put more thought into what you wear in order to look nice for the occasion. 

Typically, jeans are always a go-to for these types of events. However, after a nice Thanksgiving meal, jeans aren’t always the most comfortable option. 

You always look your best when you feel your best, so instead, opt for these cute, yet comfortable, outfits to rock at your Thanksgiving.


Yes, sweatpants.

Wearing sweatpants to a Thanksgiving dinner might seem a bit too comfortable, but so many different brands have been coming out with different joggers and other styles of sweatpants that you could dress up or down.

From the parade to dessert, a comfy pair of pants will be perfect to lounge in.

With flare pants being all the rage right now, something like these Aerie velour pants can keep you comfy all day while still looking great in family photos.


A shacket is a mix between a shirt and a jacket. Some shackets have a plaid pattern to look more like a flannel, and others are just solid, neutral colors you can throw over any outfit.

Shackets are another hot trend right now, and for a good reason. They add something extra to a previously simple outfit without being too much.

Shackets are a perfect layer to add to your fall collection, and even more perfect to add to your Thanksgiving outfit.

Flowy dresses

If your family tends to be a little less casual on the holidays, a flowy dress is a perfect option to be dressed up and still be comfortable.

Many people assume dresses aren’t comfortable because they are typically worn in more formal settings. 

However, a flowy dress can be very comfortable because it fits loosely on the body and makes you feel like you have more room to breathe.

Another nice thing about wearing a dress is that you don’t have too much to worry about when putting together an outfit because it’s just one piece.

Jumpsuits and rompers are also great options for that same reason. All you need to do is find some shoes and accessories and you’re good to go. 

Classic leggings

A pair of black leggings can never let you down.

Leggings are some of the most comfortable pants to ever exist. There are endless ways to style them which gives you a lot of versatility when it comes to putting an outfit together.

Leggings are a staple of fall fashion. You can wear them with sweaters, flannels and especially shackets.

The outfit options for this Thanksgiving are endless with a pair of leggings.
