If you *happen* to be coupled up this Thanksgiving, then odds are you'll be spending QT with not just your boo, but their fam too (if you get our drift). Seeing as how first impressions are, well, everything
, a little pre-Thanksgiving dinner outfit
planning may be in order. You know the drill: Nothing too short, low-dipping, or eyebrow-raising. Ahead, we've compiled a cheat sheet of #winning style essentials — from a versatile wrap dress
and ruffled blouse
to panache-packed hair accessories for the holiday season
— that would do both your S.O. and future in-laws proud.
Emily Warden Dalmatian Jasper Bolo ($178):
Details, ladies, details
. Allow this conversation-starting Dalmatian Jasper bolo necklace to jazz up a noir turtleneck or slinky slip dress for around-the-clock slayage.
Banana Republic Elephant Print Wrap Dress ($139):
Nothing to wear? May we recommend a universally flattering wrap dress — in a playful elephant print, no less — that'll transition from a meet 'n' greet with your boo's fam to post-Thanksgiving cocktails (just the two of you)?
Madewell The Esme Bow Boot in Velvet ($198):
The heart knows what it wants, and these crushed velvet booties are no exception. Dress 'em up with a boho-fabulous maxi or dial it down with a fisherman sweater and a pair of trusty 501s
J.Crew Velvet Hair Tie ($23):
Fasten this crushed velvet hair tie around a plain-Jane ponytail for instant holiday-ready flair.
Pilcro Corduroy High-Rise Skinny Ankle Jeans ($98):
For a maximum polish, minimal effort lewk, style these tried and true cords with a silk blouse and borrowed-from-the-boys blazer. Bonus points for the pumpkin spice hue.
Amour Vert Lexie Dress in Black Plaid ($238):
This toss-on-and-go plaid tie-waist dress (peep the classic fit-and-flare silo) from Amour Vert is what we like to call a sartorial no-brainer.
Free People See You Glow Plaid Skirt ($98):
All hail sweater 'n' boots weather — give or take a Wellington plaid skirt for good measure. The peekaboo slit is just risqué enough to keep things exciting.
Side Party Kiko Dotted Midi Dress ($153):
Ah yes, dear. Achieve Scandi hygge vibes by tossing this dotted midi dress on with an oversized chunky knit cardigan and Chelsea boots.
Rebecca Taylor Leopard Print Silk Dress ($450):
We can't decide what we love more: the leopard spots or the fact that this effortless frock leaves room for seconds (and thirds) at the Thanksgiving dinner table.
Reformation Lucille Coat ($348):
Coat check, please. Should your boo whisk you away on a romantic rendezvous, rest easy knowing that this ladylike faux fur houndstooth topper will keep you company.
