What to Wear for Thanksgiving Dinner with Family

Adriana is wearing the Monica dress in mustard and paired it with a nude pointed toe kitten heel and some simple gold bangles. 

Thanksgiving day is all about feeling good, eating well and expressing gratitude. Whether it’s your turn to host Thanksgiving dinner or someone else’s, you’ll want a Thanksgiving outfit that moves with you throughout the day and night. Your outfit should prioritize comfort without sacrificing style. Choose a soft and non-restricting dress that will allow you to eat that extra slice of pie, because we all deserve it!

If you happen to be the host of your Thanksgiving dinner with family, take the stress out of the day by already having an outfit put together. We all want to look our best while enjoying holiday fun, however we rarely think about making sure we wear a practical and comfy outfit. A jacket dress is the perfect style to choose because it looks very put together while feeling like a cozy dream!
