Style Session: What to Wear for Turkey Dinner

Turkey, Stuffing and Pie, oh my! With all of the food we’re planning on eating next Thursday, comfort in our clothes will be key—however, wearing sweatpants to the dinner table isn’t an option for many of us. So we asked, “WWVD” (read: What Would Victoria Do)? We checked in with our resident style guru to get some ideas on what to wear for Thanksgiving Dinner so we can be comfortable yet eat as much food as possible like we should all be doing!

The shirt: Layering is key – gives you options  that work separately and together,  for whatever Thanksgiving table you find yourself at. We love this merino wool long-sleeve polo shirt by Paul Smith (the burnt orange feels super seasonal); you can wear it alone or under a blazer. Or, to give your look a holiday-casual vibe (without going full sweatpants) and layer a crewneck T-shirt under a cozy cardigan.

The pants: A tailored, dark-wash jean is so versatile, a great staple for most dinner parties. The Collection by Michael Strahan straight-fit jean in the Gramercy wash is a great option, along with the classic textured twill flat-front pant.

The jacket: Michael loves to top off his look with a jacket and although he’s typically a blazer guy, this suede barn jacket from our friends at Jean Shop New York gives your special-occasion a slightly more laidback but on-trend look—the ideal vibe for a holiday that’s all about relaxing in order to stuff our faces.

The shoe: One of our favorite all-purpose shoes is the Blundstone because it can go seamlessly from planes, trains, and automobiles to the Thanksgiving table to a post-dinner walk. We especially the love the rustic style of the Men’s Dress Boots
