I’m not sure about you, but I can still smell that pleasing, warm smell of an apple pie even though Thanksgiving day is long gone and Thanksgiving day 2020 is far away. 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 2020 or Christmas 2019.

Yes, a bunch of Thanksgiving Day Outfits. You know, for all the ladies sitting at the Thanksgiving Dinner table. The daughter who came back home for Thanksgiving Day, the stay at home sister, the chic friend who always comes by, and for the hostess, of course.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR 2020 THANKSGIVING DAY

So what to wear for the Thanksgiving’s Dinner Party then? Well, it depends on what role do you play at the Thanksgiving Dinner Party. Are you the hostess who not only has to cook all the food but also entertain the guests?

Or are you the hostess who secretly got all the food delivered and now trying to impress her guests saying she made everything from scratch in her kitchen?

No? Then you must be that perfect hostess who has everything under her control and can spend the entire evening sitting at the table entertaining her guests, while the servants and the chef at the kitchen do all the cooking and serving?

Neither? Then you must be that lost girl who came home for the Thanksgiving’s Day, and the only thing you have to do is to finish your plate and enjoy the time with your family and friends.

Well, if you are none of these, you are either the friend guest or the plain sister of that lost daughter who usually takes all the spotlight.

Whoever you are and whatever your role at the 2020 Thanksgiving Dinner party is, we will make you the most stylish and entertaining person at the 2020 Thanksgiving Dinner Party.

THE BEST 2020 THANKSGIVING’S DINNER PARTY OUTFITS

As said, you should dress regarding your role at this 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 guest are eating their starter and chatting.

Whatsoever, the best outfit to wear on the Thanksgiving Day is a comfortable cardigan or a sweater, yes the ugly sweater this time (fair isle sweater, not the Christmas sweater) and a skirt, a long shirtdress with buttons and a belt (to hide your turkey tummy), lace dress, or a cardigan with wool pants. And statement jewellery of course.

Ps. Avoid jeans and those clothes listed on what not to wear for Thanksgiving Day over here.

As it goes for the materials, swap the fashionable leather for another stylish fabric. Yes, wool and velvet. You can even wear a velvet suit. Although truth to be told, the velvet suit might be too much for the Thanksgiving’s 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.

Anyway, down below you will find a bunch of 2020 Thanksgiving Day outfits you should wear regarding your role at the Thanksgiving day party. To shop the looks simply click the items in the pictures or the gallery below each collage.

THE BEST THANKSGIVING DAY OUTFITS FOR THE HOSTESS

First, some Thanksgiving Dinner Party outfits for the hostess. The one who cooks the Thanksgiving dinner by herself, the one who pretends that she cooked all herself and the one who let others do the cooking.

WHAT TO WEAR IF YOU ARE THE ONE WHO COOKS THE THANKSGIVINGS DINNER

Undoubtedly, you have the hardest work to do this Thanksgiving Day. Not only 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.

Not mentioning, you are short on time. My mother always complains she has no time to get dressed and do hair and makeup once she starts cooking. But she has a great tip – dress up before you even start cooking.

I know, this sounds unpractical. But luckily I found just the perfect outfit for you. Obviously, you can’t wear the 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 you can really wear beautiful Chantilly lace as you might ruin it. Don’t worry; I’m not suggesting you should wear some old shirt and resign with the sloppy look.

What you should wear is a nice embellished t-shirt, preferably made of cotton or short-sleeved blouse and tailored straight-leg wool pants or pleated midi skirt. Yes, the skirt, please.

#1 PINK PUFF SLEEVE BLOUSE WITH VELVET PINK PLEATED SKIRT AND KITTEN HEELS

 

 

 

The velvet pleated skirt and a blouse with puff sleeves will make you look like a perfect and fashionable hostess. As it goes for the shoes, put on fashionable slingbacks with kitten heels. These Ganni slingbacks feel like slippers to me.

Oh, and don’t forget to do your hair. I suggest you pin your hair or wear a ponytail if you don’t have bangs like me. Another thing, keep your hairspray, hair perfume and eau the parfum close. All those smells of the kitchen can ruin your look.

SERIOUSLY, I COOKED ALL THESE BY MYSELF THANKSGIVING DAY OUTFIT

If you got all the food from the restaurant and now trying to make everyone believe you made it by yourself, then 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.

#2 SHORT SLEEVE RED DRESS WITH PUMPS

 

 

 

This dress (shop here) is perfect 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. Ps. Wear a red dress. You know, in case you get dirty when tasting the sauce. No one will notice a red stain on this dress for sure.

THANKSGIVING’S OUTFIT FOR THE LADY HOSTESS

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 are doing great.

Not to say anything more, you can wear anything that allows you to breathe and move after the last bite you take.

#3 CARDIGAN AND A MIDI SKIRT WITH CHIC PUMPS

 

 

 

This Thanksgiving Dinner Party outfit is just perfect for the lady hostess. For one, it’s elegant. For two, it’s very comfortable too. And the buttons are perfect for hiding the turkey tummy.

LAST YEAR THE SHY SISTER THIS YEAR THAT STYLISH, FUN GIRL

Finally, how to dress if you are the black sheep of the family? The so-known, most plain girl at the table who hardly gets a chance to be noticed. Obviously not like last year! This year, it’s your year to be in the spotlight at the Thanksgiving Dinner Party. Believe me, wearing this outfit, not even the dessert will get as much of the attention as you.

HOW TO DRESS IF YOU WANT TO LOOK CHIC ON THE THANKSGIVING DAY

So what should you dress then? No, not like your cosmopolitan sister. Forget the cargo pants. You should show some legs. Luckily, the mini skirts are as fashionable as the midi skirts this year. And they go so well with the cardigans and sweaters too. Remember how I wore my mini tweed asymmetric skirt with oversized white turtleneck sweater? Well, you should borrow my look.

#5 TURTLENECK SWEATER WITH MINI TWEED SKIRT AND COWBOY BOOTS

 

 

 

Not a fan of the skirts? Then wear a dress. Sorry to be harsh on you, but you want to look better than your sister, right? Then channel yourself and put on that mini skirt or mini dress. Besides, if you wear it with the over the knee boots or thick wool stockings, you will feel like you are in pants anyway. But others will see you in a completely new way.

#6 TWEED MINI SKIRT AND WOOL STOCKINGS
