We all want to impress our friends and family this holiday season, especially after the quarantined holiday season we experienced last year. Styling the perfect Thanksgiving outfit can get overwhelming with the hundreds of different images we can find online.
It can get easier when we consider some key elements of how we celebrate our individual holiday feasts. Among the most important is what feels comfortable to you and your own personal style! You will most likely never feel comfortable in something that doesn’t really feel like “you.” This being said, follow your gut and your personal style and don’t worry what others have to say about how you choose to dress your body. A local or 5-star rated online tailor is also be valuable when making sure your clothing fits your body and style.
Other factors to consider are a little more objective, such as what the weather is forecasted to be and what kind of family traditions you partake in. Mother nature has a way of keeping us guessing on Thanksgiving day; sometimes it’s the perfect Autumn weather, but realistically the temperature can swing low or high. There are two ways to combat the fear of unpreparedness. First you can plan a layered outfit complete with tee, cardigan, and jacket, for example, for easy garment discarding in case temperatures soar or drop suddenly. The second option is admittedly more high-maintenance and calls for preparing multiple outfits to anticipate any type of weather.
In addition to attempting to predict the weather, try to think about what your family traditions are- do you generally sit and play card games for hours? Maybe your traditions include a classic touch football game or a walk in the neighborhood after you dine. Perhaps the main festivity is the big feast itself, complete with a charcuterie appetizer platter, a juicy turkey with all the sides for the main course, and plenty of pumpkin pie for dessert. Whatever the day calls for, there are definitely ways of dressing that will enhance your experience as well as outfits that could make the day long and uncomfortable.
Of course the most comfortable and fabulous outfits are the ones that fit your body and not the other way around. Top online tailors offer a convenient way to make sure your wardrobe is ready for the holiday season. Ultimately, a little thought and planning goes a long way in terms of comfort and style on “Turkey Day.” Check out these 10 outfits that will make you a Thanksgiving fashion icon no matter what your holiday looks like!
