Thanksgiving Outfits for Men: What to Wear for Every Dinner
It’s almost Thanksgiving and you know what that means — time to find new ways to style Thanksgiving outfits for men. Between dinners with friends, family, and significant others, you’ll be looking fly all holiday long. Check out these tips to get started.
Men’s Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas
Every Thanksgiving dinner has its own vibe, and it’s important you dress accordingly. So we’re going to break down what you should wear based on occasion and by dress code (like casual, semi-formal, and formal).
What to Wear to Your Family’s Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving with family? Classic. Time to grab some family-friendly garments and catch up with everyone you know and love. Check out these men’s outfits that are perfect for any family’s holiday meal.
Show your family how put together you are with a crisp, dark suit. Complete the look with some fresh kicks, a tight haircut, and an epic watch. And if you’re feeling fancy, pop a pocket square in your suit for that little something extra.
When your family’s doing a semi-formal Thanksgiving dinner, definitely reach for the camel overcoat — especially if you’re living somewhere cold. Pair it with a turtleneck for extra style and warmth.
Some families keep it casual each Thanksgiving. But that doesn’t mean you have to skip the stylish aesthetic. Consider pairing sneakers with tailored pants, cool shades, and a casual peacoat this year.
What to Wear to Your Significant Other’s Family Thanksgiving Dinner
Whether it’s your first Thanksgiving with the SO’s parents or your twentieth, you gotta look put together for their family. Here’s how to sport a dashing look this year.
When your SO’s family is getting all dressed up, you have to step up your game. The key here is layering. Layer the vest over the shirt, and layer the jacket over the vest. And don’t forget a patterned tie to pull it all together — it’s the icing on the cake (or should we say… pumpkin pie?).
If your beloved’s family has a semi-formal event, this one’s easy. Go with black pants, a lighter button-down, and a matching sport coat. You can skip the tie for this one, but make sure you’ve got a sleek belt to keep it looking polished.
Everyone loves a casual Thanksgiving dinner. And if you’re dining with your partner’s family this year, don’t be afraid to get a little cozy with it. Reach for warm-colored sweaters, high-quality tees, and neutral-colored pants.
What to Wear to the Friendsgiving Dinner
There’s nothing quite like spending time with the family you chose. Maybe your friend group goes way back, or maybe you’ve just formed a new one. Either way, here’s how to get handsome for your upcoming Friendsgiving dinner.
If your Friendsgiving is formal attire this holiday season, get ready to go wild with your outfit. We’re talking infinity scarves, dark peacoat and blazers, and slim-fit pants. Stick to dark color palettes for a dramatic look. Plus, it’s easier to mix and match pieces that are already in your wardrobe.
For a semi-formal Friendsgiving, swap out the coat or jacket for a vest. Layer your vest over a clean, crisp button-down. And then top it all off with a nice leather bag and matching leather shoes for an epic aesthetic.
Lastly, if your Friendsgiving is keeping it casual this year, it’s time to bust out your favorite beanie. And if you’ve got stylish glasses, grab those, too. Then layer a button-down underneath a fall-colored sweater, and call it a day — because you’re styled to perfection.
Dos & Don’ts for Men’s Thanksgiving Fashion
When it comes to Thanksgiving, there are certain ~dos~ and ~don’ts~ of what to wear. Let’s run through a quick list so you’re up to speed:
- DO mix and match your patterns. It’s festive, it’s fun, and it’ll make you stand out in a crowd.
- DON’T ignore the dress code. If you show up looking like you rolled out of bed, that’s not exactly dressing for success (especially if there’s a formal dress code).
- DO embrace autumnal color palettes. Reach for reds, yellows, and oranges to match the vibes.
- DON’T forget to watch the weather report before heading out. November’s weather is still touch and go for lots of places. And you don’t wanna be left out in the cold.
- DO get cozy with it. Let’s face it, you’re going to be eating A LOT. So don’t be afraid to wear clothes that have some extra give around the waist.
- DON’T get lazy with it, though. Instead of sporting those gym shorts you’ve had since high school, rock a pair of contemporary joggers with an elastic waist.
Explore stylish hoodies, shirts, and accessories that are perfect for this Thanksgiving — no matter what your plans are. And start shopping for high-quality garments like the handsome devil you are.
