What Should You Wear to a Thanksgiving Dinner? Ideas and Suggestions

Thanksgiving is almost always about the food. But that doesn’t mean you need to attend (or host) a Thanksgiving dinner in your PJs. Here are some simple tips that can let you show off your style quotient at the dinner while still hiding away that unwanted food belly effectively.

Rely on the Classic Jeans and T. Shirt Look

The ol’ T. Shirt paired with Jeans look never fails to up your style quotient at any do. You can opt for the standard white T. Shirt and blue jean look, or trade it in for something with more flare like a trimmed top and accessories. Another option is to ditch the jeans in favor of cargo pants. This makes it easier to handle your bulging tummy as the feast progresses well into the night.

Scarf it up with a Blanket Scarf

This is an excellent way to hide your body while you gorge on all that food at the Thanksgiving dinner. You can use a scarf in a number of ways to style your outfit. While a smaller scarf will only serve the purpose of making you look fashionable, a blanket scarf worn around the front can play the dual role of hiding your tummy. Pair the scarf with a turtleneck sweater and you are good to go.

Try a Wrap Dress

One of the many advantages of a wrap dress is that it can be used to flaunt your figure as well as hide it whenever you want to. The dress also tends to move nicely with the waistline, accentuating your curves nicely. Best of all, it comes with a knot that you can opt to loosen a few rounds into the meal in order to feel more comfortable.

Consider a Shift Dress

Another chic ensemble for a Thanksgiving dinner will involve a shift dress and a nicely ironed shirt underneath it. The shift dress is roomy enough to give you ample space for dinner while the shirt underneath it ups the style quotient appropriately. You can also consider some more flair in the form of a shirt with bell sleeves or a turtleneck.

Pair the Oversized Knit with the A-Line Mini

Now this is one outfit you can easily wear to a Thanksgiving dinner and get away without anyone noticing your flab by the end of the night. While the oversized knit hides all those unnecessary curves (including the ones near your tummy) nicely, the A-Line skirt will give the impression of longer legs which, in turn, makes you look thin. Pair the outfit with a pair of stylish heels and you will look ravishing!

The Longline Vest look works too

The main purpose of a Thanksgiving outfit is to make you look perfect and stylish while hiding away all that flab threatening to show out. And a longline vest will do just that! While the longline vest will do an amazing job at keeping what you want unseen, hidden away, a combination of a boho-print dress and heels to boot will set temperatures soaring at the dinner table.

Just get into those Stylish PJs

Yes, yes we did mention that showing up at the Thanksgiving dinner in your PJs may not be a wise option. However, there is a way you can enjoy the party in your pajamas. And that is to wear one of those ultra-silky PJs with some accessories to compliment them. No one is going to complain about your ‘out of bed’ look with your PJs looking sheer luxurious. 

While Thanksgiving concentrates on food and not on clothes, it doesn’t mean you need to end up at a Thanksgiving dinner looking drab. Up your style quotient by showing up at the dinner with some really trendy outfits and be the star of the evening.
