As the holidays approach, I feel like my to-do list triples in size! What to cook, who to buy for, what to buy them, when to start decorating the house…but then, you realize – what am I going to WEAR!?? I’ll be sharing a few outfit ideas posts for the holiday season, but first up is what to wear for Thanksgiving! Today I’m showing you 4 Simple & Stylish Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas. And the best part? These pieces can carry you through all holiday season long!

This time of the year is just plain BUSY. Family get-to-gethers, Friendsgivings, gift exchanges, work holiday parties, Moms Night Outs, cookie exchanges, etc.! So while I’m calling this Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas, what I really mean is – outfits you can throw on anytime you have to leave the house and need to be a bit more dressed up than the normal yoga pant or athleisure wear you’re typically sporting! This post isn’t intended for you to go out and buy all new things, but instead, peruse your closet and take inventory of what you already have to pull out and mix and match to create new outfits!
If you DO want to spend a little bit and pick up a few new pieces, many of the items I included are available with 1 or 2 days shipping options. And better yet? Tons under $30!
I polled you guys on Instagram and it seems like we all want to look and feel put together during the holidays but still casual and comfortable – 48% said dressy, but not overly and 52% said super casual. Dressy vs. casual can mean different things for everyone, so I decided to style four cute, casual and relatively simple outfits that you can dress up or down based on where you’re headed or what you’re in the mood to wear!
Let’s take a look!
4 SIMPLE & STYLISH THANKSGIVING OUTFIT IDEAS
OUTFIT #1 | STRIPED & SIMPLE
I love wearing black denim to slightly dress up any top. You’re still in jeans, but they take it up a notch and are usually slimming! I love these high-waisted black skinny jeans and wear mine all. the. time. For under $50 [+ 40% off right now] you can’t go wrong. They suck you in and are super stretchy. And for Thanksgiving Day, that is exactly what I want and need!!
The sweater is a great tan and black combo which I love because it pairs SO well with leopard. If you read my 13 Ways to Add a Dose of Leopard into Your Fall Wardrobe, then it isn’t shocking to see a touch of leopard in these outfits. Pattern play and same color family which makes it an easy combo. The balloon sleeve detail is also very pretty. I sized down from my normal small and ordered this sweater in an extra small so it wasn’t quite as over sized. Sizes are going quick, so grab this one before they’re gone!
These leopard loafers are SO good and I wish I would’ve taken a picture of the heel. So fun! I highly, highly recommend them for day or night! If you want to rock this outfit with booties, then of course I still recommend leopard, so these flat booties are a great option for Thanksgiving. If you’re hosting, then these slippers are a must!
Last but not least, this gorgeous beaded tassel fringe necklace is on sale from $139 to $69.99. It can be worn year round with pretty much everything because its such a neutral palette of ivory and gold. Even more stunning in person!!
OUTFIT #2 | CLASSIC SWEATER & JEANS
It really doesn’t get any simpler than a cute leopard crew-neck sweater [only $20 with 2 day shipping!!] and jeans. Throw on a black bootie and some jewelry and you are set! Other ways you could switch up this same look…add a white collared button-down underneath or swap out the jeans for black denim and layer a chambray shirt underneath. Such an effortless, classic look!
OUTFIT #3 | SPICED UP BASIC TEE & JEANS
Sometimes you wake up and just wanna wear jeans and a white tee. Thanksgiving day might not be any different! This is my favorite raw edge v-neck white tee currently on sale for under $15 and is a great staple for layering. Throw on this adorable long, rust colored leopard cardigan over it and you are ready to walk out the door! The cardigan comes in tons of other leopard color combos and is a nice thick material. I am pretty sure they call this color “coffee”. $32 and free 2-day shipping so hurry if you want it for next week!
OUTFIT #4 | ALL BLACK + A POP OF [FAUX] FUR
This outfit might be my favorite and is the dressiest of the four outfits. I ordered these faux leather leggings for $15.99 and was really not expecting much from them, despite the 1,395 rave reviews [4/5 stars and #1 best seller]. They are high-waisted and comfortable. Boom! I am usually a small or medium in bottoms [size 4 or 6] and ordered these in a medium and they’re a great fit. Love them!
Throw a long sweater on [any color!] and top it off with a faux fur vest – holiday outfit done! The vest isn’t overly long, so I suggest whatever you put underneath, be longer to cover your backside since you’re wearing leggings. If you wear the vest with jeans, then you can wear any length top or sweater! I will absolutely be sporting this look all winter long!
Ok, so there you have 4 simple and stylish Thanksgiving outfits that can easily carry you through December!
