25+ Cute Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

A Lily Love Affair shares a thanksgiving outfit idea wearing black jeans, a plaid blazer with black ankle booties


The holiday season is just weeks away. Today, we are celebrating one of our favorite holidays by sharing more than 30 cute Thanksgiving outfit ideas.

Whether you are getting dresses up this holiday or staying at home with loved ones, the perfect outfit ideas below will hopefully help you solidify your Thanksgiving plans in style (and comfort, if needed!).

What I love most about these Thanksgiving day outfit ideas is they are not just appropriate for the holiday season, but cute fall and winter outfits you’ll have in your closet for years to come.

The majority of these looks are geared towards a more casual Thanksgiving setting, but we also wanted to include winter and fall looks for dressing up, too. Prefer black pants, leather pants, sweater dresses for your Thanksgiving dinner? We have all the style inspiration for you in this post.

In this style inspiration post, we are covering the following topics. Feel free to use the links below to navigate the post.


If you’re looking for a casual Thanksgiving outfit idea that still feels pulled together, I love skinny jeans paired with a striped sweater and classic coat.  What I love most about this look are the multiple ways it can be styled.  Dress these friendgiving outfit ideas down with sneakers or dress up with faux suede pants.

This plaid coat is by far one of my closet favorites.  If you’re looking for a more simple Thanksgiving day outfit idea you can never go wrong with a black sweater and jeans.  Both make for the perfect outfit to wear to Thanksgiving dinner this year.

We added the plaid coat to add a bit of flavor to the look, but as you can see in the look below, we also love it with a classic black or tan coat, too.   If you are going for more casual outfits, you can also swap out the skinny jeans for leggings with sneakers or booties.

As we mentioned above, you can never go wrong with an all-black (or almost all-black) fall outfit.  If you want to give an all-black look a bit more character this Thanksgiving holiday, pair your Thanksgiving dinner outfit with a statement bag.

I normally gravitate towards my skinny jeans, but these flared jeans have quickly become one of my favorite pairs.  The high waist and button front are so flattering and lengthening – not to mention comfortable and cute.  Go ahead and eat all the turkey you like! 🙂 

For this cute fall outfit, we chose a blouse we’ve had in our closet for the last few years along with ankle boots and a long tan coat.  Again, these looks are meant to inspire you to choose pieces from your closet as opposed to buying something new, when possible.  We have included a few of our favorite top options below.

If you need a Thanksgiving outfit idea that marries casual and dress, I love this simple take on a few of the looks above. 

This sherpa jacket adds a warmer layer to the look while still looking really chic.  I ordered in a size small but could have ordered the medium, as well.  We also love this look paired with sneakers for an even more casual take to your Thanksgiving day plans.

Every comfortable and cute Thanksgiving outfit should include this long sweater cardigan.  Not only will you look fashionable, but it’s also incredibly comfortable.  You cannot go wrong styling this cardigan a million different ways (be sure to check out ‘How to Wear Falls Must Have Long Cardigan 10 Ways.  

Look two is another perfect dinner outfit where you can quickly swap out the jeans for skinny jeans, wide-leg jeans, joggers, or leggings.  I paired this same look with sweater joggers yesterday for a pulled-together casual look.  

OUTFIT IDEAS #1: Wide leg jeans || Long black cardigan || Black suede heels || Bag

OUTFIT IDEAS #2: Wide leg jeans || Similar plaid blazer || Black tank || Bag

You can never go wrong with a pair of over-the-knee boots in my option.  They slip right over our favorite skinny jeans for a cute holiday look.  As we have mentioned above, if you prefer, switch out the skinny jeans for cotton or faux leather leggings, too.  

I’m guessing you can sense just how much we love this long cardigan sweater by now?  Yes, it really does pair well with everything.  

If you’re headed to Thanksgiving dinner and looking for a more loose style of denim, these straight jeans are so soft and comfortable.  You could also switch out the heels for ankle boots or even sneakers.

If you have been following the blog for any time now, you know we are a big fan of this J.Crew wool coat.  The vibrant color options help elevate just about any Fall or Winter look.  

Keeping with the skinny jeans trend, we have fallen in love with this plaid top and heels.  It’s a cute Thanksgiving outfit for a small, intimate dinner or looks at home.  

Bonus, both the coat and plaid top are now on sale.  As for sizing, I definitely recommend sizing down in the coat (I bought an XXSmall) and up slightly in the top (size 4).  I love this wool jacket so much I have purchased it in several colors.  I can almost guarantee you’ll love it as much as I do.  It’s a great coat for anyone currently living with more mild winter temperatures.

If you are dressing up a bit more this Thanksgiving, choose a cute top paired with heels and a black blazer.  A few of my favorite styles include a plain white button-down, a plaid blouse or top, a statement sweater, or even a statement tank.  

This oversized blazer is a closet must-have and one that you’ll have in your closet for years to come.  Plus, it will give you just the right amount of room to eat as much pie as you like :).

Similar to our love for the faux suede pants above, we share a similar love for these faux leather pants.  They have an elastic waistband which keeps them a bit more casual, but with more of a trouser feel.  They, too, can be styled in endless ways.  But, we love them most with plain sweaters and statement jackets like the looks below.  

As for sizing, they are available in misses and petite.  I purchased a petite 2 for reference.  

Like many of the Thanksgiving dinner outfit ideas above, you can also replace the faux leather pants for cotton or faux leather leggings for an even more comfortable and cute Thanksgiving outfit.

OUTFIT IDEAS #2: Long black wool coat || Similar faux leather pants || Similar striped cashmere sweater || White sneakers

Not into faux leather pants?  Swap them out for these incredibly comfortable stretch trousers.  Did we mention they also have an elastic waistband?  Bring on all of the pie, please!

Looking for more casual fall outfits to wear to your Thanksgiving dinner? Here are just a few more of our favorites with white sneakers.

If you caught our post 6 Ways to Wear This Seasons Best Faux Suede Pants then you know just how much we love them for every occasion.  While I love a good pair of leggings, these faux leather pants are almost more comfortable.  

Not only are they butter-soft, but they are as versatile as they are stylish.  They can be dressed up or down with minimal effort.  For this Thanksgiving, I love them paired with a leather jacket, simple tank, and sneakers.  

Be sure to check out the post though for even more outfit ideas.  All of the ones included would be perfect for your Thanksgiving celebrations.

By now you likely know we are also big fans of dresses and pleated skirts for fall and winter. The green pleated skirt below is one of our favorites all season long. The best news is it’s less than $40.
