As we begin planning our Thanksgiving menus, it’s also a great time to start thinking about what you’ll wear. Whether your family and friends celebrate with a lavish, upscale affair or a laid-back, casual gathering, I’ve rounded up multiple neutral Thanksgiving outfit ideas for the occasion. The goal is to feel confident and comfortable in your outfit, and ready to celebrate the many blessings in our lives. All of these looks feature neutral pieces that are timeless and easily styled.
Neutral Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas
Flowy Midi Skirt with Knee-High Boots
A flowy midi skirt is a feminine and on-trend outfit option to wear to your Thanksgiving gathering. This would be a cute look to wear to a Friendsgiving or even a brunch to celebrate the holiday with friends. Recently, I’ve been pairing knee-high boots with midi-length skirts because it looks streamlined and sophisticated. To dress this look up even more, you could pair pumps with the look instead of the boots.
Casual Looks with Leggings or Sweatpants
Do you prepare your meal the day before Thanksgiving, so you’re not preparing all day on the actual day of? If so, these two looks are the perfect looks to wear for prepping. I also think these outfits would work well for casual Thanksgiving gatherings.
In the first look, pair faux leather leggings with my favorite Amazon tunic-style top. It’s super comfortable and is the perfect top to wear with leggings. Dress it up a bit by pairing mules with the look. I’ve also been loving this new Spanx matching set. It’s incredibly comfortable and have been wearing it non stop. I sized down to a small in the pants and wearing a medium in the top.

Casual Look with Denim Jeans
For an elevated casual look, layer a coatigan over a neutral, cream sweater. This coatigan was a favorite purchase from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and it’s on sale again right now. These straight leg jeans fit like a dream. They’re a perfect mixture of a close fit with the modern fit of a straight leg. I wear a size 27 in them. If you’re headed to someone’s house for a casual gathering, this is a great neutral outfit idea to consider wearing.
The look on the left is similar to the coatigan look, but I styled the Juliette cardigan with a simple white long sleeve t-shirt underneath. In the second look, I styled skinny jeans with the popular Free People sweater. It has the most gorgeous texture, and opted to styled with mules.
Midi Sweater Dress with Knee-High Boots
This ribbed midi sweater dress is a great bump-friendly option to wear to Thanksgiving. Pair the dress with knee-high boots for extra coverage for the legs. To give the look more structure, consider adding a belt to the natural waistline (or don’t to make room for the Turkey). 😉 This sweater dress is similar to the one pictured, and my favorite piece from my Amazon fall capsule wardrobe.
Mini Skirt Styled with Knee-High Boots
For a more upscale Thanksgiving gathering, a mini skirt is so much fun to wear. You can find mini skirts in a variety of prints and textures from plaid to faux leather to houndstooth. With a mini skirt, you have to be strategic when it comes to tops.
A fitted sweater or bodysuit is best to get a seamless look when tucking the top in. You can also wear a chunky sweater option, and simply front tuck it in. Another option would be to tuck the very bottom of your sweater into your bra and pull the sweater down until you get the coverage you need around the skirt.
Mini Sweater Dress with Boots
This mini sweater dress is fun to style multiple ways. In the above photo, I opted to wear my over-the-knee boots with the look. The suede adds a bit more texture, and dresses the outfit up a bit with the block heel. This another bump-friendly option as well. Throughout most of my pregnancy, I opted to simply size up in many pieces instead of buying specifically maternity clothes. I found I had more options doing it this way, rather than searching for pieces labeled “maternity.”
Play up your fall and winter accessories and add a scarf to a mini sweater dress. This adds a pop of color and pattern. I finished this look with leather knee-high boots.
