Dressing to impress is always our #1 goal in life, but when you combine that with meeting the fam for the first time — your BFF's fam, that is — the pressure is on to perfect the role of most stylish pal. Behold, our 14 favorite (read: autumnally chic and dinner party
-appropriate) clothing items and accessories
to shop just in time for Thanksgiving
Johnny Was Medina Mesh Dress ($298):
When you want to be comfy yet stylish at the same time, a boho maxi dress is the answer. Pair that with a slouchy shrug and a wide-brimmed hat (which easily hides 2nd day roots, if you did T-Giving Eve too hard) and you're good to go.
SeaVees Sunset Strip Sneaker ($108):
Not feelin' the heels for an all-day affair? We get it. Set aside the stilettos and slip on a crushed velvet sneak instead. SeaVees crafts their footbeds with memory foam, so you'll never have to complain about your feet hurting. You also can't beat that gorg jewel tone.
Avec La Troupe Belt Bag ($395):
When there are pie plates and wine glasses to carry, who can be bothered to hold a bag? Time to embrace the season's "it trend" — the belt bag.
Misha Nonoo Jolie Skirt ($220):
Giving thanks somewhere warm? A relaxed tee and lightweight skirt fit the bill. Or, add tights and a cropped sweater for chillier temps.
Club Monaco Serefina Stacking Ring Set ($36):
Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday for stacking: stacking rings and stacking sides upon sides. Add a little sparkle to your look with this dainty vintage-inspired trio.
Topshop Relaxed Coat ($125):
If any part of your turkey day agenda involves being outside (as most do), you're going to need a coat that says "I have my sh*t together" in life — and in the fashion sense. This topper clearly says both.
Bella Dahl Western Fray Dress ($195):
If you can't seem to break away from the jeans (even on Thanksgiving), at least try to make sure your chosen denim is a little more holiday-friendly. Like this roll-sleeve, ombre, frayed-hem dress.
Sofft Wilton Bootie ($140):
Fall's #1 holiday was made for booties, and if you're going to invest in one versatile pair that will go with everything, these suede stacked boots with leather whipstitching trim are the ones.
