Thanksgiving Wear: Dress It Up or Dress It Down

Sara B from Glitter and Grace and I had such a good time collaborating on How to Wear Denim on Denim, that we decided we needed to do it again. Since Sara has such an amazing collection of party dresses I knew it’d be perfect to create a dressed up and down Thanksgiving themed post. So, if you’re at a loss as to what to wear this Thursday you can narrow down your options by asking yourself, “Is my soiree a dress it up or dress it down event?”

Sara’s beautiful jewel tone frock and leopard sweater are perfect for a fanciful dinner with families and friends. She did an awesome job at re-purposing this dress by wearing a leopard sweater over her dress. All she did was fold up the bottom half and belt it, and it was a whole new holiday outfit. Ladies I’d keep this tactic in mind when dressing for the holiday’s. Make sure you pick up some pieces that you can layer with to mix and match your options.

My go to dressed down holiday look always, ALWAYS involves a plaid print of some sorts. Make it red or green and hello you’re set. I opted for my favorite J.Crew Tartan print button up, comfy boyfriend jeans and my taupe puffer vest. Throwing some variation of these three pieces together guarantees you’ll be looking chic and be comfortable all at the same time. Whether you’re casually celebrating with your family, or you can’t make it home for the holidays and are attending a Friendsgiving, plaid, a puffer and denim always work.

Make sure you head over to Glitter and Grace to see her complete look! P.S she took these fabulous photos!
