What To Wear To Thanksgiving Dinner

Share

Our favorite things about Thanksgiving involve football, carb-loading and quality time with loved ones (read: this is not the time to labor over an outfit choice). So whether you’re visiting your significant other’s family, hosting friends or heading to a restaurant this Thanksgiving, say no to elastic waistbands and slip into one of these simple-yet-chic outfits. We guarantee you’ll look great without wasting precious family time worrying about what to wear.
