I’m not sure about you, but I can already smell that pleasing, warm smell of an apple pie even though Thanksgiving day 2023 is not here yet. No wonders why right? The holiday season has just arrived! And here is my holiday gift for you – a bunch of Thanksgiving Outfits you can wear for Thanksgiving Day 2023.
Yes, a bunch of Thanksgiving Day Outfits. You know, for all the ladies sitting at the Thanksgiving Dinner table. For the daughter who came back home for Thanksgiving Day, for the stay at home sister, for the chic friend who always comes by, for the girlfriend who is spending her first Thanksgiving Day with her boyfriend’s family, and for the hostess, of course.
WHAT TO WEAR FOR THANKSGIVING DAY 2023?
So what to wear for Thanksgiving Day 2023?
Well, it depends on what role you play at the Thanksgiving Dinner Party. A host who has to bake the turkey, make the sauce and serve the apple pie can’t wear the same outfit as the guests who came merely to enjoy the company and eat.
Whatsoever, avoid tight clothes and wear stretchy knitwear instead. You can even wear a velvet suit. Although, the velvet suit might be too much for Thanksgiving dinner. On the other hand, you can wear a velvet suit to the Thanksgiving Party that has more punch than turkey; you know what I mean.
If you are the host who cooks the entire Thanksgiving dinner on her own and takes time to entertain her guests all evening long, you need to choose your Thanksgiving dinner party outfit smart. You can’t wear a sweater as you will feel hot in it. Also, wool and cashmere have no place in the kitchen; you know the food safety standards. Neither can you really wear beautiful Chantilly lace as you might ruin it.
Undoubtedly, you have the hardest work to do on Thanksgiving Day. Not only do you have to make sure you don’t overbake the turkey, but you also have to look splendid regardless of the smells and heat from the kitchen. While you can easily cover the scents of the turkey in your hair and skin with the best hairspray, hair perfume and eau the parfum, you will need to be very clever with your Thanksgiving dinner outfit – once you start cooking, you will have little time to get dressed, do your makeup and hair.
Luckily, you can be smart and dress up before you even start cooking.
Choose from a nice embellished t-shirt, preferably made of cotton, a short-sleeved blouse, tailored straight-leg wool pants, or a pleated midi skirt. A little black dress can be a good choice for the hostess who cooks Thanksgiving dinner, too. Whatever you decide to wear, pair your host’s Thanksgiving day clothes with fashionable kitten heel slingbacks that feel like slippers.
Did you secretly get all the food delivered and try to impress your guests, saying you made everything from scratch in her kitchen? If you got all the food from the restaurant and are now trying to make everyone believe you made it yourself, you need to dress so.
Surely, you don’t have to follow the same style tips as if you were actually cooking all the food. Yet you do need to give that impression. So same as with the hostess who cooks while entertaining her guests, you should wear short sleeves.
After all, you will still be swiping around the kitchen. But you can wear more jewellery. And higher heels as you won’t be on your feet all day long. In short, you get to be Mrs Bree Van de Kamp.
A short sleeve printed dress with stunning pumps, a short-sleeve cardigan with a fancy mini skirt, a cute short sleeve knitted top with tweed shorts, or short sleeve sequin top with chic jeans are some perfect outfits for a hostess who doesn’t need to cook all the dinner by herself. Yet likes to check on the turkey and taste the sauce before serving the guests. Yes, that is why there is so much red and print. No one will notice a red stain on this red dress for sure.
Lucky you if you can sit with your guest the entire night and play the role of the perfect hostess while someone takes care of the food and drinks.
It turns out that you don’t have to worry much about your outfit, either. As long as it’s fashionable and slightly more elegant than on a casual Thursday, you will look splendid.
You can wear anything that allows you to breathe and move after the last bite you take. Ps. You might prefer something with bows – like this cute cardigan or with buttons – like this pretty cardigan, though. POV Buttons are perfect for hiding the turkey tummy. Or this stunning burgundy wrap dress.
You should wear something stylish yet comfortable, fit for your role at the Thanksgiving dinner. You can’t expect to feel the same comfort if you sit still with your family and friends at the table the entire evening or if you have to keep leaving the dinner table to check on the turkey in the oven while the rest of the guests are eating their starter and chatting. So dress for your role.
How to dress for the Thanksgiving Dinner Party if you are not the hostess but that chic daughter who just came back home for the holidays?
Wear a chic fall outfit. You are a cosmopolitan girl, after all.
Well, it depends on why your family sees you this way. If they think you dress too tacky, wear something simple this year. On the other hand, if they think you dress too casual, wear something more elegant.
Obviously not the same outfit you wore last year! This year, try something new and wear the most fashionable outfit of the season.
Anything that is fashionable and isn’t too tight. You know, to make sure you can have that last bite.
A casual Thanksgiving dinner outfit, of course! A knit dress with satin ballet flats, a cardigan with black jeans and chunky loafers with a headband, a turtleneck sweater with midi skirt and cowboy boots, knitted cut out dress with platform boots, or sneakers with a midi pleated skirt and shearling denim jacket are some great casual Thanksgiving dinner outfits you can wear in 2023 if you want to feel comfortable and look fashionable.
It depends on the dress code. If it is a formal Thanksgiving dinner party, then wear a formal Thanksgiving dinner party outfit. If it’s a casual Thanksgiving dinner party, then wear a casual Thanksgiving dinner party. If there is no dress code, wear the first Thanksgiving dinner party outfit presented in this article.

CHIC THANKSGIVING DINNER PARTY OUTFITS
When events call for a dress code, yet no one tells you what you should wear, it’s smart to go all out but keep it low and effortless at the same time.
I know it sounds complicated, but it really isn’t.
1 CAMEL SWEATER WITH SHORTS AND PUMPS
Chic camel sweater with black shorts with stunning pumps rise to the occasion when you want to stay comfortable but look suitably glam.
2 EMBELLISHED BLOUSE WITH CARGO PANTS AND PUMPS
Extra details like pearl collars and black silk give additional possibilities to make the transition from casual daytime to a formal evening. Treat yourself to little luxurious touches that will lift the spirits and make cargo pants suitable for a Thanksgiving dinner party.
3 CARDIGAN SET WITH LEATHER PANTS AND POINTY FLATS
Whether it’s casual at your home, or dressed up for Thanksgiving dinner with friends, a cardigan is the easiest item to throw on. Wear it with a matching knit top to make your outfit even more fashionable for Thanksgiving day 2023.
FASHIONABLE THANKSGIVING DINNER PARTY OUTFITS
For Thanksgiving Day celebrations that revolve around a dancefloor, wear something exceptionally fashionable this year.
4 MINI PRINTED BUBBLE HEM DRESS WITH PLATFORM PUMPS
Step forward in punchy print that injects energy into the holiday season. Punchy prints look equally fabulous paired with fashionable platform pumps or sequinned pumps or bare legs and platform boots when you step on the dance floor.
I prefer the second option for now. It feels more autumnal. But you want to look exceptional, so perhaps go for platform pumps.
5 MINI HALTERNECK DRESS AND KNEE HIGH BOOTS
Wear a stunning little black dress if you want to be at the centre of attention all night long and dance into Black Friday fashionably.
For an extra touch, don’t play it save and explore new colour options for the boots. Try burgundy knee high boots that dazzle when matched with a mini black halterneck dress.
For a formal Thanksgiving dinner, wear a fashionable dress. A great dress takes the guesswork out of dressing up. Just step into a pair of iconic shoes, and you will be at the Thanksgiving dinner table in no time.
6 EMBELLISHED GOWN AND PUMPS
Confidently face the family and relatives with an elegant dress. Ps. Layer on a chic black blazer for some classic charm.
When the night goes dark, and the first Christmas lights come up. It’s time to bring out the shimmer and sparkle. Seize the opportunity to showcase your new little black dress.
If you are saving the previous look for a Christmas party and prefer to keep it more casual for a Thanksgiving dinner party, wear something more fluffy and soft – like a knit dress that makes the best Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade outfit.
8 CUT OUT KNIT DRESS WITH COWBOY BOOTS
A fashionable cut out knit dress will take you from Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade straight to the dinner table effortlessly.
9 RED CARDIGAN WITH BLACK JEANS AND SAMBA SNEAKERS
Yes, you can wear sneakers and jeans for Thanksgiving day. In fact, you can even wear trendy Adidas Samba sneakers and jeans for Thanksgiving dinner with boyfriend’s parents, and they will love what you wear.
You just need to pick a pretty cardigan to style with black jeans and Samba sneakers and wear them like this!
10 STRIPED SWEATER WITH LEATHER PANTS AND LOAFERS
Knits don’t have to be embellished to be suitable for Thanksgiving dinner. They can be pretty casual, but you will want to wear a trendy striped sweater for this Thanksgiving day. POV No trendy Thanksgiving day makeup is needed with this chic outfit. But you can add a headband.
