What To Wear To Thanksgiving Dinner This Year

It's the time of year to put together an outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks. Here are our tips to help decide what to wear to Thanksgiving dinner!

This Thanksgiving, you may finally be reuniting with family and friends. Whether it’s for a small, intimate gathering, or something a little bit bigger, it’s the perfect time to pull together a holiday outfit that will make you feel like a million bucks. Make sure you have all the elements to pull together your ideal Thanksgiving outfit from head to toe, and that includes your accessories. Here’s how to pick the perfect handbag, purse, and jewelry to wear on Turkey Day.

What To Wear for a Casual Thanksgiving Dinner

If your family prefers an informal occasion in the comfiest of clothing with your collard greens and mac and cheese, you can add a touch of pizazz to your casual jeans and a puff-sleeve tee with a crossbody purse. Try a classic saddle bag crossbody or one in a flared, sleek shape. You can keep the look low-key with a crossbody in a solid color, or you can make a bold statement with a bag in pink, red or purple. You can toss your mini crossbody over a chunky cable knit sweater, as it won’t add much bulk to your outfit. If you need a bag with a little more space, many Brahmin Satchel bags can be converted into a crossbody with our adjustable straps.

What To Wear for a Formal Thanksgiving Dinner

When the fine china and sterling silverware are the table settings for the holiday, your look should also get an upgrade. Complement the softness of a silk or satin wrap dress with a structured leather satchel or tote in an exotic pattern. If you prefer pulling up to the table in a solid color pantsuit, keep your lines sharp and sleek with an angular clutch purse or wallet. Try one of our genuine croc-embossed leather wallets in a blend of luminous shades to add a colorful dimension to your look. 

What Accessories To Wear On Thanksgiving

Wishing loved ones “Happy Thanksgiving” online or on Facetime? What a perfect opportunity to showcase your jewelry! Try a pair of round crystal earrings, or adorn your hair with gold plated hairpins. A gold plated bracelet adorned with premium Swarovski crystals and colorful embossed leather will surely be noticed, as will a playful charm necklace. All these pieces are perfect for special occasions (or just because!).

What Colors To Wear On Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is one of the best holidays of the fall thanks to the autumnal colors that are prominently on display. Use this as your guideline for the best color purses for Thanksgiving dinner. Think pecan, hazelnut, gold, red, and green -- the colors the leaves are turning outside. Shades of navy, dark teal, and chocolate also represent this time of year. A mix of any of these colors will truly capture the spirit of the season. Brahmin excels in creating collections with glorious swirls of colors and patterns, which you can find in our carryalls, bucket bags, shoulder bags, totes, and more.

Celebrate this Thanksgiving with Brahmin’s vast selection of handbags, purses, wallets, and jewelry, and be thankful for the time spent with the ones you love.
