A cozy cardigan and trendy sock boots for a balanced holiday look.
Thanksgiving is this Thursday– which means I need a Thanksgiving outfit. (While we’re on the subject, I’m way beyond excited for pumpkin pie, sage sausage stuffing, and cranberry sauce.) I never know what I’m wearing until the morning of; it’s usually a toss-up between sweat pants or actual clothes. My family tends to trend casual, but I always want to grab a heeled-something to dress up my look.
This year I’m keeping with a tonal theme: all beige, baby. A cozy tasseled cardigan and super stretchy skinnies (they just look like real jeans; these suckers have some give) provide the comfort, and then dressier elements elevate the look. Enter stage left: sock boots with a solid stacked heel, big hoop earrings, and a pendant necklace with just a bit of sparkle. This look seamlessly mixes classic and trendy elements, and my only worry will be red wine stains. (Tide pens to the rescue.)
Shop the look:
How do you plan your Thanksgiving outfit? Is your event formal or casual? I love the combo of easy and dressy elements in this look, plus the addition of current trends like a monochromatic theme and sock boots. Digging the layering here, too– if a kitchen full of family members raises the temp too much, I can take the cardigan off and not lose style points. If I want to give my feet a break from the heels (or I’ve had a glass or three of mulled wine), I can kick off the sock boots. A girl needs options!
Happy Thanksgiving! Check back Thursday for a serious breakdown of all the gifting options to guide you through the holiday season. In the meantime, Shopbop is having a sale you need to check out. I’ve dropped all my favorites here (at several price points) for your shopping ease.
Shopbop is starting the Black Friday madness just a bit early, which is great because it gives you a chance to get some shopping done before you are knee-deep in turkey and family tradition. What I love about this sale? The more you spend, the more you save!
You can get 15% off $200+ orders, 20% off $500+ orders, and 25% off $800+ orders. So if you’ve been eyeing that designer bag or want to get a huge chunk discounted off your Christmas shopping for your most stylish friends + family, this is the sale to go hard on. Use code: GOBIG16 at checkout and watch that total drop.
The sale runs today through Monday, November 28th. That’s almost a whole week to shop! (For my Central time zone friends, the sale ends at 2:00 a.m. on Monday night/Tuesday morning, technically November 29th.)
I’ve linked everything from jewelry to athleisure goodies, denim to holiday outfits. Go forth and get your shop on!
Bonus round: check back Thursday (post-meal + family time, of course) when I’m launching all my holiday picks for this season. If you need a gift guide, I’ve got you covered. I’ve scoured the best retailers with the best items, for everyone from your girlfriend to your sister to that co-worker who keeps you sane at the office. See you then!
