Are you having a formal Thanksgiving dinner party again this year? That’s a fabulous idea!
Thanksgiving is not only a time to express gratitude but also an opportunity to showcase your impeccable style, especially if your celebration includes a formal gathering. Whether you’re headed to a sophisticated dinner party, or hosting a formal Thanksgiving dinner party at your house, the perfect outfit can enhance the joyous atmosphere of this special day.
True, planning a formal Thanksgiving dinner party in 2023 might be challenging, but figuring out how to host a virtual Thanksgiving dinner last year was not easy either, and you managed it perfectly.
Worry not; I can help! Here are seven formal Thanksgiving dinner outfits you can wear for a Thanksgiving dinner party in 2023. And yes, all of these formal Thanksgiving dinner looks are comfortable, too. You will be able to breathe normally after turkey and after a bite of a pie. Wait, not just a bite. A whole pie!
For the discerning host or hostess preparing to plan a formal Thanksgiving dinner of unparalleled sophistication, the choice of attire becomes a crucial part of setting the tone for the evening. And choosing the right dress code a tricky task.
Being one of the most important national holidays, Thanksgiving dinner is almost as important as Christmas dinner. In terms of formality, the right dress code for Thanksgiving dinner would be a cocktail. A Thanksgiving dinner is below Christmas dinner (black tie) and above the Easter breakfast (morning dress). Point of view, they would be equal if Easter breakfast was not a daytime formal event.
Even so, your hostess might set a more formal dress code. Whether the hostess is aiming for the chic allure of a cocktail dress, the timeless sophistication of black tie attire, or the regal elegance demanded by a white tie affair, here is the outfit you can copy effortlessly.

From fashionable red to the timeless allure of little black dresses, these fashionable cocktail Thanksgiving dinner outfits are truly giving. Discover how to strike the ideal balance between refined grace and modern trends, ensuring that your attire mirrors the warmth of the occasion and leaves a lasting impression on your guests.
1 RED THANKSGIVING DRESS WITH DESIGNER SHOES AND A TIARA HEADBAND
For a traditional Thanksgiving Day format that takes you from early afternoon to dancing after dinner, you need a dress that goes seamlessly from day to night.
Red is perfectly suited for autumnal festivities with a festive cocktail code.
Also, apart from being the most fashionable dress of the season, a red dress is a dress you want to wear if you are easily distracted while eating. You know, because of the red sauce that can end up in your lap while answering all those annoying questions.
2 A LITTLE BLACK DRESS WITH PARTY PUMPS
Imagine the aroma of turkey and cranberry sauce wafting through the air. As you settle into your chair, the ambient warmth of the gathering is momentarily disrupted by the arrival of your vivacious old aunt. She takes the seat beside you, her eyes gleaming with a familiar mischievous spark that signals an impending barrage of questions.
As she settles in, the questions begin to flow like a stream seeking its course. Inquiries about your job, relationship status, and the ever-popular “When are you settling down?” bombard you. However, in the face of familial scrutiny, your attire is your silent ally. The A-style little black dress, with its modest yet alluring charm, is a shield of sophistication. Pov, that is why I personally love black so much. It works every time!
Amid the prying questions, this formal Thanksgiving dinner outfit speaks volumes without uttering a word. The little black dress and Gianvito Rossi pumps weave a narrative of confidence and grace, a counterpoint to the familial queries that attempt to unravel the intricacies of your life.
Now it’s the time of the year to really go the extra mile with a stunning cocktail dress. Refresh your old little black dress with some feathers or get a stunning ruched black dress with a slit. Mine is from Self Portrait.

Ps. You will love the simplicity of this formal Thanksgiving dinner outfit.
ELEGANT BLACK TIE THANKSGIVING DINNER OUTFITS
When Thanksgiving dinner calls for a black tie dress code, we think it is nice to go all out. Formal Thanksgiving day attire calls for evening fabrics that really shine, like lace adorned with sparkling cord or mesh with embroidered sequin florals.
From flowing evening gowns that trail behind like a cascade of autumn leaves to impeccably tailored tuxedos that command attention, the black tie dress code provides an opportunity to infuse the celebration with a touch of old-world glamour.
5 LONG MESH SEQUIN BLACK FLORAL DRESS WITH HIGH HEEL SATIN PUMPS
A long mesh black floral dress is the best dress to wear for a formal Thanksgiving Day dinner. Wearing a black-tie Thanksgiving dinner dress with sequins, you don’t have to worry about getting dirty, either. Those sequinned flowers on the dress can camouflage any stain of the sauce or wine.
6 BLACK-TIE THANKSGIVING DINNER DRESS AND SATIN PUMPS
As night draws in and the lights come up, it’s time for something elegant – a formal Thanksgiving dinner outfit with a beautiful long green dress. And a blazer to layer on as you step out to get some fresh air.
SOPHISTICATED STYLISH WHITE TIE THANKSGIVING DINNER OUTFITS
In the grand tapestry of formal dress codes, white tie stands as the pinnacle of opulence and regality. When the Thanksgiving dinner invitation declares a white tie affair, it signals an evening of unparalleled elegance where every detail, from the tiara to the gloves.
7 SILVER GOWN WITH LONG GLOVES AND PARTY PUMPS
My outfit of choice? An exquisite Self Portrait floral-embroidered silver gown with silver pumps and grey long gloves. Elegantly paired with silver pumps and adorned with grey long gloves. This exquisite floor-sweeping dress is not only a fashion statement but an ideal selection for a white tie event, ensuring you stand out in the grandeur of the occasion.
Draped in intricate floral embroidery and featuring a stunning tiered skirt that gracefully cascades to ankle length, this gown creates an ethereal charm, casting a captivating silhouette as you move through the salon. The square neckline and short tulle sleeves add a touch of modesty, elevating the dress’s allure.
To personalize your outfit and accentuate your waistline, the dress comes with a detachable embellished belt, allowing you to tailor the outfit to your unique style. Although you might wear it without the belt – you do want to eat a dessert, right? Also, it’s advisable to consider sizing up when making your purchase. Since a size UK 4 fits me impeccably, you should be aware that standard sizing may run small, particularly for those with a fuller cup size. Pov, what fits me perfectly may prove snug for everyone else.
In a curious turn, I observed a discrepancy with the Farfetch model (the dress is linked to Farfetch in the gallery below), who reportedly wears the same size UK 4 as me. Despite our differing body shapes, the dress doesn’t appear tight around her bust and waist. However, it does seem somewhat short on her, even though it fits perfectly at the waist. This raises the possibility of an error in the provided product information. Notably, the Farfetch model typically wears all other Self Portrait dresses in size UK 8 (as verified by checking all the dresses she wears on Farfetch).
Given this observation, I strongly recommend you consult the size guide to ensure the perfect fit before you purchase the dress. A measuring tape can be a valuable tool to calculate your size accurately, providing peace of mind and confidence as you prepare for white tie Thanksgiving dinner.
