Dressing for Thanksgiving: Not Just a Side Dish

Oh, Thanksgiving. It’s the one day of the year where everyone puts on their best clothes to hang out in the living room. Or, if you’re anything like us, it’s an excuse to buy an entirely new outfit to impress those cousins you haven’t seen in a while. From AM to PM, from the kitchen to cleaning up and saying your goodbyes, we’ve got your looks locked and loaded for the entire day of festivities.


Casual and Cool

As soon as your alarm goes off, there’s no time to hit snooze. Off to the kitchen you head to prep all of the deliciousness for the day. From pies to cocktails and everything in between, you want to be as comfy as can be when you’re preparing and popping things in and out of the oven. Athleisure looks combine cool, casual and comfy elements so you can focus all of your energy on the goodies and not on how good you look.

Dressed to Impress

Now the party is really getting started. The turkey is finally finished, the house smells of freshly baked pies and the table is set and surrounded by plenty of mouths to feed. You, being the hostess with the mostest, slip away to put on your best look (that still has some stretch for the food you’re about to indulge in). If you’re looking to really spice things up, a knit sweater dress is adorable, festive and certainly comfy enough to enjoy your time with your loved ones. If you’re taking a more casual approach to the afternoon, Cato stretch denim and an autumnal-hued top is your go-to.

In For The Evening

The food is gone, the kitchen is clean, and everyone is leaving satisfied and more stuffed than the turkey. Just because the evening of activities has come to an end, doesn’t mean your amazing looks have to. Lounge around in style (and maybe munch on a few leftovers) in head to toe sleepwear that can take you from catching up with loved ones to snuggled up on the couch.
