3 Thanksgiving Styles

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is already next week and somehow it’s already halfway through November. Time really does fly! When it comes to fashion, fall has my favorite styles by far! I absolutely love being able to wear cute skirts and sweaters one day, and then cozy boots or scarves the next. It's also such a beautiful season to take a walk and really enjoy the foliage and scenery.

Today I am collaborating with Plato's Closet styling 3 different dressy/casual Thanksgiving outfit ideas! I am sure you have a bunch of items in your closet than can be replicated, or I highly suggest always visiting your local Plato's Closet to see what trendy pieces they currently have like I did!

Outfit 1:


I absolutely love a good sweater/skirt combo, and this pairing is no exception! This look is both casual and dressy at the same time, so it’s perfect for that dinner that might not be super casual. The knee-high boots I incorporated add a bit of sophistication and dress it up. They also have a bit of a heel, which gives an elevated-look for the outfit. Plus, they will keep my legs warm instead of regular booties!

I am totally obsessed with this skirt! Tweed skirts are such a hot trend right now, so as soon as I saw it, I had to grab it immediately. Plaid is such a classic print for fall, so you can never go wrong with it! Even if you don't own a plaid or tweed skirt, corduroy works just as well. You can even add some tights underneath if you're not comfortable showing some skin during the colder months.

Lastly, I found this adorable mock sweater while browsing the racks and just couldn't say no to this great neutral! Mock neck sweaters are a great fall staple since they go with anything and never go out of style. *snatched!*

Sweater: Abercrombie - $14

Skirt: Talbots - $12

Boots: $14

Outfit 2:


This next look is a slight step down from the last one when it comes to the "casualness" of it. I used the same boot but added comfortable closet staple pieces this time to dress it down a bit. It’s a totally the look for those Friday nights where you want to look slightly dressed up and cute, but don't have to be.

Eyelash sweaters are another huge hit for colder months because of how soft they are and how cozy they keep you! I especially love the wispy material of the sweater because it allows you to jazz up even the most basic outfit. I originally had this sweater in a darker gray, that I bought almost two years ago, but while rummaging the sweater racks at Plato’s Closet I found the same sweater just in a different color! I added this to my basket, without hesitation.

Next, these high-rise jeans were a great find because you can wear them with any outfit! I personally prefer dark-wash jeans because they the perfect amount of contrast to my outfit against the sweater. Not to mention, they were super affordable for a good pair of jeans, too!

It’s always a tough decision when choosing what to wear under cardigans during the fall or winter. One of my favorite pieces in my closet is always a basic long sleeve turtleneck since they go with just about anything and they keep your neck nice and toasty! I already have a few turtlenecks in my closet, but I had to grab this one because of the fun and different texture. Lastly, I added a belt to complete the look. You can easily choose any fun, large buckled belt to get the same idea!

Cardigan: Francesca's - $14

Turtleneck: $6

Jeans: Hollister - $18

Boots: $14

Outfit 3:


The last outfit I put together is definitely the most casual of them all, but also the coziest! Let me start by talking about these boots: OMG, I nearly gasped when I saw these NTW boots just sitting on the shelf in my size! I remember I wanted a similar pair of boots from Express last year so badly, but they were too expensive. Now they’re mine and I’ve worn them too many times to count!

Combat boots are a classic winter boot because they are great for dressing down any outfit and give off ALL the cozy, casual vibes. Scarves are another essential piece for the colder weather. They are cozy, add a cute flair to any outfit, or can dress up even the most basic tee. I especially love this one because it was made with plush fabric and it has some festive holiday colors!

Lastly, this mock neck sweater was also a classic find! It’s a great neutral because you can wear whatever you want with it. I decided to dress mine up with a scarf, but you could also pair it with a long necklace, a coat or a cardigan.

Sweater: Forever 21 - $8

Scarf: Aerie - $6

Boots: Express - $14

Jeans: Hollister - $18

I am so happy with all of these trendy finds at my local Plato's Closet! I honestly shop there all the time, which is how I typically find some very trendy (like my NWT boots)!
