3 Chic & Easy Thanksgiving Looks

Ah, Thanksgiving the food, the family, that comment your extended family member didn’t have to say to your face. Who’s not excited? Whether you are hosting or being hosted this Thanksgiving you want to look good (can’t let your sister in law catch you slipping) but still be very comfortable. I’ve got three looks that are chic and easy to wear so whether you will be in the kitchen or in the den watching football you’ll be cute and comfy.

Leather Lumberjack

Do families still dress up for dinner like in Lifetime Thanksgiving movie specials? If your family still dresses up please invite me over next Thanksgiving. I love the idea of playing with juxtaposition and contrasting a dressier element with a casual element. The shape of this skirt is dressed up but since it’s faux leather you can add the casual comfortable element of a plaid flannel. Just be sure to bring it all together with your boots and tights of your choice.

Cool Sweater, Cooler Shoulder

If there is a cold shoulder detail on a dress or top within a five-mile radius I’ve seen it and considered buying.  It’s just enough skin to be sexy but it’s not overly revealing. This detail is perfect for anyone who’s priority is being comfortable but you still want to look chic and on trend. Just throw on your favorite skinny jeans and some booties and you’re ready to go.

Two in One

I love a wrap poncho it makes everything ok and I found this one at Costco! Wraps and blanket scarfs are so versatile it transforms jeans and a t-shirt into an ensemble. You’ll walk in greet everyone and tell everyone, “Happy Thanksgiving”, then take off your wrap and relax. I paired my poncho over a black long sleeve body suit, flare legged jeans, and belted it to give the look more polish look. Added bonus it anchors your wrap in the event a gust of wind blows when you are carrying covered dishes into your grandmother’s house. This plaid poncho is reversible so if you’re not feeling a big print you can wear it on the solid side for a more minimalist look.

The Best Way To Style Your Jean Jacket This Season

Let’s Put A Pin In That

Denim is my cure all, anytime I want to tone down anything sleeveless my immediate remedy is to throw on a denim jacket. When I want my individuality to shine through in my personal style brooches are a chic way of adding flair to a jean jacket. Adding a few sparkling broaches to a jean jacket add great juxtaposition to the casual element of denim. It also gives a youthful vibe to a broach.

I have a small collection of pins that I have accumulated over the years. I recently added a vintage ice cream cone broach to my collection, it was a rare find from a vendor at the Ohio State Fair! I often score broaches at thrift stores and second-hand shops it’s a really affordable way to breathe new life into jackets, coats, hats, and cloth handbags! The next time you come across a broach that catches your eye definitely consider adding it to your collection of accessories because the possibilities are endless.
