Three Styles, One Fashionable Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving, the one holiday that is actually about food.  If you’re anything like me, I don’t necessarily feel my most beautiful and put-together self when I’m stuffing my face for 24 hours.  It’s hard to resist those comfy and stretchy yoga pants, but don’t give in!  Here are three fabulous outfit inspirations to keep you looking fabulous (as usual) this Thanksgiving.

1. Cozy and Versatile

This outfit is great for all of the active ladies. Whether lounging with the family or running around with the kids, this outfit is comfortable but ready to go!  Citizen jeans are the epitome of classic casual, and the Theory knit sweater is a subtle touch of cozy and confident.  Tory Burch boots add a little glam, and the Burberry scarf ties the whole thing together for an unstoppable ensemble.

And wouldn’t you know, this Burberry quilted jacket from STA 324 Newbury St. goes perfectly when it’s time for the family football game.

2. Elegant and Feminine

Sometimes we celebrate Thanksgiving with a loved-one’s family instead of our own.  But don’t let that frighten your holiday fashion sense!  A feminine, chic outfit is appropriate for any Thanksgiving atmosphere.  We love this blouse from Ralph Lauren, which you can dress down with Calvin Klein black skinny jeans.  Then add your personality in the accessories!  We added some sparkle with Rebecca Minkoff loafers and a Marc Jacobs bracelet.

These Prada silver jeweled flats from STA Armitage are a fabulous way to add some glam to your sophisticated ensembles.  And If you’re a guest, the Chanel cross body from STA Haddonfield can carry all of your little necessities while you’re out!

3. Stylish, Yet Forgiving

Maybe you’re like me and love to spend Thanksgiving with a glass of wine in the kitchen with the women of the family.  All I know is I don’t want to wear anything too restricting, especially as I’m nibbling all day!  A dress is a great way to stay comfortable and fashionable.  This Marc by Marc Jacobs short dress allows you to move freely around the house.  Paired with black tights and Chanel boots, it screams bold and down to business.  And we can never resist a good accessory, like this Michael Kors collar necklace.

And don’t forget a Michael Kors boyfriend watch from STA 176 Newbury St. is a mandatory accessory on Thanksgiving to keep track of all the madness!

Happy Thanksgiving fashioniSTAs!

How to Look Your Best on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a holiday to celebrate time with your friends and family but also a weekend where it is totally acceptable to eat all the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, jam and pumpkin pie that you can possibly squeeze into your mouth. With this said, it is only natural to want to wear something not so tight fitting, yet still look like a Thanksgiving Fashionista.

The oversized look is so in this season and its the perfect outfit to make  yourself look trendy in a no-so-tight fashion. There are a few different way to make this look one to remember:

1. The first look you can do it a jeweled sweater with corduroy pants. This look is sure to catch an eye with the highly fashionable spiked or studded sweater and be totally comfortable with colored corduroy pants. Brands such as J Brand and Blank NYC carry cords with some stretch in the waist, perfect for those turkey day binge sessions.

2. Another great outfit would be leggings (whats more comfortable?), a flowy shirt, blazer, and chunky jewelry or an infinity scarf. A big necklace or earrings is a great replacement for layered bracelets considering that you don’t want the bracelets getting in the way of you reaching for another piece of turkey. If you can’t part with your arm party, go with a big cocktail ring and you’ll forget all about the bracelets tucked away in your room.

3. If you’re aiming for something a little more dressed-up, go with a skirt/dress ensemble that has the two essentials: stretch and sparkle. Throw on a jersey or sweatshirt material skirt that has some embellishment on it, and pair it with an oversized cardigan or batwing top in a neutral color. Throw on big earrings or statement necklace and you’ll be good to go!

If you’re just looking to put things in your closet together to make a cute Thanksgiving holiday outfit, you can’t go wrong with leggings/jeans and any oversized basics. Then all you have to do is accessorize it with any of the options above such as a scarf, chunky necklace, or a studded jacket or blazer to make it dinner party appropriate.
