Last but not least formal Thanksgiving dinner outfit is this beautiful long navy dress. Also from Self-Portrait (shop here). This black-tie Thanksgiving dinner dress is the most fashionable gown you could wear for Thanksgiving day for sure. See the neckline? The heart-shaped neckline is the most fashionable neckline for 2020.





Finally, the last formal Thanksgiving dinner look – the black suit. Ps. For a disco Thanksgiving dinner, you can also wear a suit in more flashy and glittery colours. Check this glitter blazer!
