Thanksgiving is just an exciting 3 days away and if you still have no idea what you’re going to wear yet, don’t worry! I’m here to help give you some Thanksgiving outfit ideas so you can focus on more important things…like the food! Er, I mean family. 😉

12 Last-Minute Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas

1. sweater dress + leggings + boots
I can’t think of a better invention than leggings for Thanksgiving…because who wants to wear jeans on the day that an average American will consume 4,500 calories? Yeah, I think that’s crazy too by the way! By pairing the leggings with a sweater dress you achieve a look that’s cute, put together, and cozy. No one needs to know you’re doing it all for comfort 😉

2. dark skinny jeans + chambray top + cable knit sweater + brown shoes
Okay, okay, for the people that have more self-control than the average human being, this skinny jean look nails cute and simple. A sweater makes this more appropriate for the fall day and if you’re the type to join in a game of football, it’s way easier to play in jeans than a dress!

3. turtleneck + denim dress + tights + plaid blazer + patent boots
This look is kicking it old school. So while lots quirkier, not any less cool. Layering is always one of the key ways to show some style, so pile those layers on, girl.

4. dark skinny jeans + white button down + camel coat + mules + gold accessories 
Crisp. Clean. Simple. Looks polished and like you made an effort (even if you really didn’t!). Dress it up with a stack of arm jewelry to complete the look.

5. silk skirt + gray plaid button down + block heels
Does your family celebrate Thanksgiving with the china out and dinner party music playing in the background? If yes, then this classier outfit is for you. The silk skirt adds the right amount of class while the gray plaid button-down tones down the look. The block heels add to the outfit without it making it feel too fussy. Add a little sparkle with a short necklace!

6. wide leg slinky pants + sweater + chandelier earrings + heels
This outfit is for the person where half of you just wants to throw on an easy sweater and sweatpants, but the other half of you kinda wants to dress up and make an effort. Been there, amiright? The wide leg slinky pant looks very dressy but has the material of some fancy yoga pants. Add some prettier details such as chandelier earrings and heels (but I won’t blame you if you pack some slippers in your purse and change later).

7. leggings + cream sweater + Burberry print scarf + booties
Pair your leggings with a long, oversized sweater for a look where comfort meets style. A scarf adds interest and some booties dress it up a bit!

8. leggings + casual tee + mules + extra long cardigan + dainty necklaces
Oh, how many different looks could I create with leggings. Let me count the ways. The extra long cardigan adds some visual interest and all the materials are super soft. Perfect for the get-togethers where you have to travel in the car a lot!

9. floral dress + otk boots
Just two pieces. Super simple, but sweet and flirty. When wearing florals in the colder months, look for pieces in darker colors. Instead of bright colors and pastels, get earth tones. Related: How to Wear Florals in Fall

10. denim skirt + tights + oversize sweater + baker boy hat 
If you’ve kept your denim skirt in rotation, now is the time to pull it out and get maximum use by pairing it with some tights for warmth, boots for style, and a sweater for comfort. Related: 8 Ways to Wear a Denim Skirt

11. swing dress + leggings + booties + cardigan
This last look is for those that are all about keeping it simple. “Comfort is key” is what people say. Not me, but people 😉 You just really can’t go wrong with a swing dress in any print, color, or style. And though it’s all about comfort in this look, you’re not sacrificing style one bit.

12. dark skinny jeans + cable knit sweater + blanket scarf + booties
Maybe not a unique outfit, but sometimes you don’t need to reinvent the wheel…you just need to own it! This scarf is a fall/winter season classic and it looks great topped on a cozy sweater. Related: 5 Fall Must-Haves
