Some things to avoid wearing this Thanksgiving 2018

  1. Feathery clothes:

Adding feathers to your clothing thus is not the most attractive styling tips to have.

  5. Veils:


    You may find it to be elegant and fashionable but we will not recommend it for Thanksgiving 2018. This is more about eating a lot and the last thing you want is an inconvenience while eating or worse still, stuffing the veil with food when you were careless. So avoid veils and opt for different styles.

  6. Oversized turtlenecks:
