Thanksgiving will be slightly different this year. But hey, we got this, right?! Throughout the last eight months, we have all adapted to new ways to celebrate. And, Thanksgiving is just one more celebration that we will need to slightly alter. A good portion of 2020 will become the most talked-about time in our lives. So, why not make this Thanksgiving a meaningful day. The menu is most likely already planned. So, it’s time to game plan and ask yourself, what to wear on Thanksgiving?
Put on something that makes you feel like this holiday is something other than ordinary! Pull out the dishes you save for special occasions, light candles, swipe on some lipstick. Use this opportunity to have some fun with your style. Look for cozy and soft fabrics to mix and match.
So whether you are staying at home or visiting a few family members, I am cooking up a little outfit inspiration for you below.
For casual gatherings at home, comfort is key. You’ll want to build your look around a few of your favorite style staples that make you feel good. Find a nice pair of comfortable jeans that have a little bit of stretch. Feeling festive? You may want to even try a pair of trendy paper bag high waisted faux leather pants. You can adjust the waist as the day goes on or after your second helping of pumpkin pie. Add a cozy oversized sweater that’s soft and warm.

If you are planning on hosting, I suggest a comfortable dress. A flowy and roomy style will leave you feeling easy as you will most likely be on your feet all day. Set the tone for your guests as you will still want to be festive, even if you are at home. Pair the unexpected sneakers with a dress. Your guests will gobble up your stylish flair.
If you live in a warmer climate, try this tank dress or this long halter dress. You will be serving in style with this sweater dress like this and casual sneakers. For an effortless look try this Roomy Tie Waist Jumpsuit. You can even wear a blazer with comfortable joggers and a top to look polished yet feel very comfortable.
Don’t forget about hostess gifts. Even if you are staying at home, find something fun for yourself to make the day special.

A fun little activity I recommend for you and your guests is to place out pieces of paper, a pen, and a bowl and ask guests to write down what they are thankful for. After dinner, take turns reading the tiny appreciation notes aloud. This is especially nice when children are old enough to participate and read everyone’s thoughts. I’d love to hear any family traditions that you may have. Join me in the Prime Women Facebook group to share your family traditions!
After expressing thanks, it is time to have fun, enjoy the festivities and look great doing it! This year, there’s no need to wonder what to wear for Thanksgiving! I’ve got outfit suggestions below.

If you’re attending a socially-distanced outdoor dinner, you can dress up a little nicer as opposed to when you are hosting the big meal. After all, you won’t be spending as much time in the kitchen cooking and cleaning. Although, if you’re dining at your adult children’s home, you may find yourself right back in the kitchen (because that’s what moms do!). Sweater dresses or faux leather skirts and a jacket are easy outfits. The look will give you a stylish yet comfortable vibe.
