Do people dress fancy for Thanksgiving?

Yes…and also no.

Unlike some of our other favorite holidays, Thanksgiving doesn’t have a typical dress code. While Christmas calls for red, white, and everything nice, and NYE wouldn’t be complete without a sparkly outfit, Thanksgiving outfit ideas have a little more breathing room when it comes to fashion. (Which is good, considering you’ll be needing that breathing room after a few servings of pie!!)

So, how fancy your Thanksgiving outfits are will depend on how you’re celebrating Turkey Day. A formal dinner with extended family may mean dressing up with your fall best, while a laid back Friendsgiving with your crew is your chance to break out the sweats. Which brings us to our next FAQ…

What should I wear to Thanksgiving dinner with friends?

Similar to the last question, the outfit you wear to Thanksgiving dinner with friends will really depend on your friend group and the type of party they’re throwing.

For a super chill, casual hang with your ride or dies, we say rock your favorite lounge set! But if you’re having a more festive sit-down meal (a la our fave Friends Thanksgiving episodes), now’s your chance to wear some trendy Thanksgiving outfits — bonus points if they’re ’90s-inspired!

When in doubt, the best Friendsgiving outfits and ideas tend to be more casual than Thanksgiving outfits with family, but still super cute. And a comfy waistline is a must, no matter the dress code!
