Thanksgiving Styles: Dressy and Casual.

In honor of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, I decided to put together 2 different Looks for you, today. These are my ideas of an Outfit to wear for Thanksgiving Dinner - where you are invited as a Guest, and later on Black Friday as a Shopper. I chose each Outfit from 2 of my Favorite stores.

Thanksgiving Styles: Dressy and Casual.

This first Outfit is brought to you by Banana Republic (details below). 
If I was invited to a Family Thanksgiving Dinner, I would dress up (somewhat), of course. For this, I went with a Simple and Classic Color pairing: Black+Red (in honor also of my country Albania, since today is our Independence Day) and added a little bit of Cognac through the Skinny Belt, Flats and Clutch (notice 2 trends: Animal Print & Color-block). I mixed+matched Leopard (Belt) with Python (Shoes). I wanted the Outfit to shine so I added a Pop of Neon Color with the Neon Yellow, Statement Necklace and a couple of Gold Bracelets for some arm candy. A pair of Silver Studs and a Classic Navy Coat with some Black, Leather Gloves finished off the look. Between the Red Pants, Gold Jewelry and Navy Coat, I feel a little Nautical, Preppy vibe coming off of this, also. I think this Outfit is Polished, Chic, Dressy but also a little Casual. You wouldn't feel confined or over-dressed wearing it. How do you like it? I must say I am in love with each piece, in particular the Jewelry, Coat & Clutch.

Thanksgiving
This second Outfit is brought to you by Old Navy (details below).
For this Outfit I kept big busy malls, long lines, full parking lots and busy traffic in mind. I also figured that a full Coat would keep one quite hot so a Puffer Vest came to mind. The Camouflage Pants paired with the Arrow, Graphic Sweatshirt make a great combination. They are both such trendy items this season and in this case look amazing together. A Woven Cognac Belt is necessary so your Pants stay on tighter and you move through busy stores, easier. The Hot Pink/Red/Ivory Color-blocked Scarf would keep your neck warm for when you are outside and it would match that Awesome Puffer Vest to perfection. The Beanie/Wool Cap is optional but I would wear it because it adds more dimension and some flair to the Outfit. And I am all about Wintery Knit Hats this season. The Camel Suede Booties have a small wedge heel so you can maneuver easily. And an over-the-shoulder Bag is necessary so your hands are busy carrying all the shopping bags, instead. Overall this is such a Polished and Happy Outfit so you look Cute & Comfortable while shopping. What do you think? Once again I love every single piece, especially the Pants, Graphic Shirt, Vest & Booties.
