What to Wear for Thanksgiving – From Hosting to Dining Out

Let me first say that Thanksgiving is typically a low-key casual day around most homes. It’s a day where eating food and watching football are considered tradition. Though it may be more casual, it is still a holiday and it’s customary to make the day special. That means dressing for a celebration, gathering with family, and most importantly expressing gratitude.

In fact, in the many ways to gather and celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, actively being thankful is the most important thing to consider. 

Place Setting Gratitude – An Idea for Giving Thanks

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.

What to Wear to a “Friendsgiving”

When going to a guest’s home, you can dress up a little nicer as opposed to when you are hosting the big meal. Most likely 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!). Leggings and an oversized sweater or faux suede pants and a plaid blazer are easy outfits. The look will give you a stylish yet comfortable vibe.

Dining at Restaurant or Country Club on Thanksgiving Day

Before you head out to your dining destination, I would recommend that you check to see if there is a dress code. Many venues especially country clubs, have dress codes that dictate what to wear for Thanksgiving. This could be a perfect time to wear a sweater dress with boots.
