Happy November, friends! In the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday that’s soon to come, start planning out a little Friendsgiving feast for you and your closest friends! You can show off your cooking skills or bring a side dish or dessert. Since group pictures will create lasting memories, you’ll also want to dress to impress. But if you’re struggling to decide what to wear, why not base your outfit on the side dish you’re bringing and the absolute snack that you are? Here are some delicious examples to give you ideas:
NEED A VEGETARIAN OR VEGAN OPTION? GO GREEN WITH GREEN BEANS!
Some go-to jeans and your favorite pair of boots are looking real comfy. Why not elevate the look with a matching army green color shirt with fun corset detail and a cropped jacket? With this simple look, you’re ready to go! You could also accessorize with a bit of gold jewelry if you want. This top was thrifted but you could find similar looks at the campus Urban Outfitters, Pitaya, or Fig Leaf.
BRINGING A CLASSIC SERVING OF MASHED POTATOES & GRAVY?
A classy cream sweater + cardigan combo will be a great place to start. Add in a brown button-front skirt to match the gravy. Accessorize with cream knee-high socks and shoes of your choice. If you have brown shoes that perfectly match the skirt? You’re golden! If not, then pair up with more nude tones to be cohesive. This skirt was from H&M and the cardigan can be found at any neighborhood Kohl’s or JCPenney.
SERVING UP SOME CRANBERRY SAUCE?
So you’ve got an all-black outfit with a black printed top, black boots, and a black faux leather jacket. Be the sweet style star of your Friendsgiving dinner with some saucy color! This pair of maroon high waisted pants + matching braided belt is the perfect pop of color that this look needs. These were thrifted but you could find similar looks at the campus Urban Outfitters, Vamp, or Royal Factory in the Short North.
