15 Thanksgiving Outfits for the 5 Day Weekend

Thanksgiving 2020 is just around the corner. For many of us Thanksgiving Weekend will be celebrated a bit differently this year. Thanksgiving Day dinner may have a slightly smaller table. Your annual “back in town” reunion drinks with friends may have a virtual twist. Or maybe this year you’re opting out of Black Friday and “into” Cyber Monday for the first time.

you’ll want to feel comfortable and confident at every THANKSGIVING WEEKEND occasion.

The last thing we think you should be worrying about is what to wear. We’ve put together a selection of 15 stylish and comfortable Thanksgiving Weekend outfits to take you from Wednesday night’s pre-Thanksgiving work drinks to recouping on Sunday after everyone (& every dirty dish) has gone home. Curate your Thanksgiving outfits from cute dresses, fashionable jumpsuits, and versatile CAxLZ separates that will take you through the 5 days of Thanksgiving weekend in style.

DAY 1: WEDNESDAY 

AFTER WORK DRINKS


The night before Thanksgiving is one of the most popular nights of the year to go out. While we may not be hitting the dancefloor like in years past, we can still enjoy the beginning of our 5 day Thanksgiving weekend (responsibly). Socially distant and virtual drinks are this year’s pre-Thanksgiving tradition. And this new Thanksgiving tradition needs an equally cute and comfortable cocktail dress or virtual party dress to go with it!


For a classic, figure flattering workwear staple, opt for our Lisa 2.0 Hunter Knee Length Dress. Complete your after work ensemble with the matching floral mesh face mask or solid hunter green fall face mask to start off the holidays looking accessorized and responsible!

If you’re craving a bold print and slimming design, go for the Kori Long Sleeve Wrap Dress and a matching rust colored face mask. No matter which look you choose you’ll be starting your Thanksgiving Weekend off in style!

DAY 2: THURSDAY

THANKSGIVING


Thanksgiving day is all about feeling good, eating well and expressing gratitude. You’ll want a thanksgiving outfit that moves with you throughout the day and night whether it’s your turn to host Thanksgiving Dinner or someone else’s. These three Thanksgiving outfits prioritize comfort without sacrificing style.


For an updated take on the little black dress, reach for the Carole Knee Length Chiffon Cape Dress. This classic fit and flare is made with stretch knit jersey to keep you comfortable all evening and the chiffon cape adds subtly eye-catching flair.

If you're looking for a more modest or formal fall Thanksgiving dinner dress, opt for the Tonya Hunter Cowl Neck Floral Midi Dress. The midi hemline adds length and movement while the cowl neck creates visually appealing dimension. Not to mention, Tonya’s print just screams thanksgiving 2020! Not a dress person? Choose the Grace 2.0 Short Sleeve Black Jumpsuit for the most figure flattering, no stress, elegant Thanksgiving day outfit. 


To create the perfect Thanksgiving 2020 outfit, complete stylish ensemble with a dash of responsibility! Shop our Everyday Black Reusable Face Masks that match all three Thanksgiving outfits, or add a pop of fall color with a mask from our Fall Reusable Face Mask Variety Pack.

DAY 3: FRIDAY

SHOPPING


Ready to sleuth out those once-a-year Black Friday deals? This Thanksgiving weekend tradition calls for an entirely unique kind of holiday outfit that is ready for action! While a simple white t-shirt and jeans might be your preferred on-the-go look, match the excitement of the day's wild bargain hunt! Take this opportunity to play with fall colors, comfortable silhouettes and your favorite fashion trends. From adding a little extra sparkle to ensuring you can move around easily, these three outfit ideas are perfect for a full day of shopping.


Our first Thanksgiving weekend shopping outfit shows a bit of that inner, shimmery early morning pep in a glam, functional way. Elevate a simple pair of black skinny jeans or cropped leggings by pairing them with the CAxLZ Toni Short Sleeve Sequin Top in Antique Gold. Simply accessorize with your comfiest sneakers for an elevated Black Friday ready outfit that says you're just as serious about a fabulous deal as you are looking fab too!

Finally, accessorize your Thanksgiving 2020 shopping look with a reusable, non-medical and protective CAxLZ Silver Sequin Face Mask face mask or a versatile Everyday Black Face Mask.

CAxLZ Bianca Black Open Front Cardigan

with GOLD DROP HOOP EARRINGS, BLACK WAIST SASH, CAxLZ SHERI PALAZZO PANT AND BLACK PUMPS

These three looks are all about looking fabulous and fun, effortlessly! The soft, stretch mesh of the Sabrina Long Sleeve Floral Midi Dress celebrates the palate of fall in a one-and-done way we love. A flowy hemline creates movement while the sheer mesh sleeves give you the arm coverage you’re looking for with unique flair. The Sunny Navy Floral Mesh Mixi Dress is also a great choice for the friend who likes a more feminine silhouette with less emphasis on the mesh material. Sunny's A-Line skirt lengthens your legs. And V-neck flounce and side ruching compliments your décolletage and waist. For a separates look, pair the CAxLZ Bianca Black Open Front Cardigan with an obi sash or thick statement belt and a pair of buttery rich CAxLZ Sheri Black Palazzo Pants. We love this look because it’s sexy, stylish and oh-so-comfortable. Expect compliments all day long!

DAY 5: SUNDAY

LOUNGING AT HOME


After three full days of Thanksgiving 2020 we know you’ll probably want to relax. So round out Thanksgiving weekend with a cup of tea and get cozy on the couch with your family. And since we’ve been wearing sweats more than usual, we encourage you to ditch them for equally comfortable fall dresses. These three cute Thanksgiving outfits are perfect to lounge in and will be great wardrobe additions for multiple occasions afterward. Talk about maximizing comfort and style!

Comfortability and ease are the name of the game. Nothing is more cozy than a simple dress with a sweatpant stretch and a figure flattering silhouette. For those of us needing a little extra fall warmth, the Monica Sweater Knit Jacket Dress adds both an extra layer of comfort and style! Or maybe you're relaxing in a sunnier, lighter west coast climate. The Maggie Patchwork Print Sleeveless Dress is for the Thanksgiving fashionista who loves to go bold while keeping it cool! Not only is it easy to slip on and off, but you can pair with a matching face mask if you need to leave the house. 


And for our inbetween Fall fashionistas, the Maggie Olive Knit Sweater Dress provides the best of both worlds. Everything about Maggie's fit and flare silhouette screams “I’m comfortable and stylish and I know it!” Plus the sweater knit material will make you feel warm and cozy without holding in heat (like pairing Maggie with a couple of layers). Whichever casual outfit you choose, you’ll be dressed perfectly for a relaxing Sunday afternoon at home!
