When it comes to Thanksgiving outfits, the goal is to wear something both stylish and comfy. You want to look nice, obviously, but you want to also be able to enjoy the food without feeling stuffed or uncomfortable while you indulge. I know that a lot of people treat the holiday super casual now, but I still like to look a little polished. Even if it’s not a full on “lewk”, I still like to put in some effort to look cute, ya know?

If you’re like me, leggings and a sweatshirt might be too casual, so my top suggestion (and personal choice), would be to wear a chic little dress, preferably something loose, flowy and/or with a little bit of stretch. I personally love patterned maxi dresses that can be worn loose or belted, but comfy sweater dresses are a great option as well.

We have a few weeks until Thanksgiving, so there’s still time to find your look. Here’s a roundup of stylish dresses to wear on Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving is a few days away, and I don’t know about you guys but I’m still trying to figure out what to wear. Cuteness is a must, but you also want to be comfy so that you can actually enjoy your meal(s) without fear that you’ll look a mess in those annual recap photos. I know that a lot of people treat the holiday super casual now, but I still like to look a little polished, even if I’m just wearing my denim, or a simple sweater dress.

I’ve rounded up a few Thanksgiving outfit ideas in case you’re still trying to figure out what to wear.

A dressier (but still comfy) option is a pleated skirt and cute heels.

IMO, faux leather leggings and a loose top is a dressier version of pajamas.
