For this week’s edition of Easy Outfit Formulas, I wanted to share some comfortable yet stylish ideas for what to wear on Thanksgiving.
For me, it’s a perpetual struggle – I want comfy pieces that won’t restrict me from filling my stomach, but I also want to look chic in front of my extended family. So, I’ve put together three easy formulas, varying from casual to dressy, which strike the perfect balance between comfort and fashion:
Oversized Sweater + Jeggings + Scarf + Flats
This is the most casual combo, and is perfect for a small Thanksgiving dinner at home with only your closest family and friends. Start with a pair of jeggings, which will be more comfortable than jeans because of their elasticized waist, and throw on an oversized sweater in an autumnal color, like mustard yellow. Add a plaid scarf and tasseled loafers to make the look more festive. Lastly, add some glitz with rhinestone earrings and shimmery bronze nails.
Swing Dress + Tights + Ankle Boots + Statement Necklace
This look is slightly dressier than the last, and is ideal for a larger gathering of family and friends. A swing dress is the perfect choice due to its trendy style (and ability to hide a food belly!). It looks festive and feminine when worn with lace tights and black booties, but to glam it up, complete the outfit with a jeweled statement necklace and a berry-colored lipstick.
Wrap Blouse + Draped Pants + Heels
This final ensemble is the dressiest of the bunch, but still has a bold and trendy flair, which makes it ideal for a Friendsgiving party or Thanksgiving dinner out. Start with draped black pants and a bright red blouse, both of which are comfy and chic. Add a pop of print with a checkered heel, then accessorize with a gold cocktail ring and quilted black clutch. Lastly, try a shimmery smoky eye for a holiday-appropriate beauty look.

Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Cara Santana, Beyoncé, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.
Look 1: Cara Santana’s Laid-Back Yet Cool Ensemble

Actress Cara Santana has a cool, laid-back style that always seems to be on-trend and always catches my eye. This week, she wore a fine-knit gray-and-white baseball sweater with ripped-knee skinny jeans, buckled black booties, a black wide-brim hat, blue mirrored sunglasses, and a neutral-hued Céline bag. Cara’s look is relaxed, but her accessories make it quite fashion-forward.

This outfit is the perfect balance between casual and trendy, which makes it ideal for a day spent around town, hanging out with friends, or going to classes. Like Cara’s top, this merino baseball sweater features a gray-and-white color scheme and is made of a lightweight knit. It’s a definite step up from a basic t-shirt.
Ripped skinny jeans have a laid-back vibe and complement the edgier buckled cutout booties and wide-brim hat. Accessories are what really amp up this outfit; a trendy trapeze-shaped handbag in a neutral color and round, colored sunglasses complete the ensemble.
Look 2: Beyoncé’s Bold Varsity Jacket

Beyoncé knows how to steal a show, even if she’s just walking down the street. Queen B looked bold in a leather mini-skirt, a denim button-down shirt, black lace-up booties, and a sequined varsity jacket with “B” emblazoned on the front (and “Bow Down” on the back!).
Varsity jackets have been trending for a while, and this one adds a playful touch to the outfit. I also love the contrast between the leather and denim textures.

While we can’t all have personalized varsity jackets, this one makes a total statement and features a cool knit texture and large letter patch. This jacket is fun and really makes this ensemble stand out. Pair the jacket with a denim button-up tucked into a faux leather skirt for a chic look.
Beyoncé kept her outfit playful with circular sunglasses and black lace-up ankle booties, and those pieces add the finishing touches to this getup.
Look 3: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Pretty Plaid Coat

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked put-together in a chic fall ensemble while in Paris. She wore a plaid coat with dark-wash skinny jeans, brown suede ankle boots, a polished bag, and oversized sunglasses.
‘Tis the season for plaid, and since the weather is getting colder, consider trading in your plaid shirt for a plaid coat instead. It will instantly transform a casual look into showstopping outfit.
Outfit Inspired by Rosie
Rosie’s chic look is perfect for the season. Dark-wash skinny jeans and any sweater or top of your choosing will be transformed with a plaid cocoon coat. The coat pulls the outfit together, while brown suede ankle boots and a structured black handbag work well with the color scheme of the coat. Don’t forget a pair of oversized sunglasses for a glam touch.
