What to Wear, Thanksgiving Day Edition

November 21, 2017

Clementine's What to Wear Hero image

Why do we get to dressed up for these winter holidays MemeI saw this meme floating around on Twitter last week and nearly screamed from its humor and accuracy. Why do we get to dressed up for these winter holidays?

In my house, this meme hits close - I can perfectly imagine my 20+ family members all gathered around the marble countertop in our kitchen, snacking away the day before we get to the main course. The living room is reserved for the ones who watch football, and hardly anyone gathers in my parents' gigantic front room until the deep-friend turkey is ready and we all make an appearance around the dining room table.

Here we are, with our family, in a family member's home, swapping stories with people we've known since before we were born. Even if you find yourself at a type of "orphan Thanksgiving," like we did in college, it's still the same scene - lots of food and lots of sitting. So why burden ourselves with fancy outfits when this is the one day a year we really let ourselves go hog-wild with the pumpkin pie?

It's fun to get dressed up - no one can deny that. And there's no time of year quite like the holidays to really lean into the glitz and glam we wish we could incorporate into our every day lives. If you're still freaking out about what to wear to the dinner table (or, rather, the kitchen) look no further - we've pulled a few looks from our New Arrivals to give you some proper holiday inspo.

BAUH DESIGNS DENIM DRESS

BAUH DESIGNS DENIM DRESS

We love love love this BAUH Designs denim dress. It's got everything you need for the perfect, casual Thanksgiving look and can be worn by itself, or open over pants. In fact, we'll bet you won't take it off all weekend - you can pick out the potatoes at Whole Foods and eat 'em, too, in this super staple of a dress.

PRAIRIE UNDERGROUND SIDEWALK TALK LEGGINGS

PRAIRIE UNDERGROUND SIDEWALK TALK LEGGINGS

After eating a lot of food, there's nothing more uncomfortable than wearing a real pair of pants. That's why Prairie Underground has brought together the best of both worlds in the Sidewalk Talk legging. These super-stretchy cotton and spandex leggings are great for post-meal relaxing, but the built-in skirt allows you to keep some semblance of personal style in the cranberry sauce coma we'll find you in days later.

BEATA DESIGN STUDIO MARY LOU DRESS

BEATA DESIGN STUDIO MARY LOU DRESS

One of my favorite pieces this season is the Mary Lou dress by BEATA Design Studio. If you're looking for something a little on the fancier side, our model Jen has paired this amazing A-line dress with the Coclico Liseli bootie in bright yellow. I love this dress because it's a little unexpected for the holiday - we're eschewing the heavy, holiday red for a wine-colored sheer-sleeved dress. It's got pockets and is perfect for hiding that post-turkey tummy.

We hope you find some inspiration in our Thanksgiving-day sartorial picks. Stop by in-store to try them for yourself, or snag them up online as well!
