What to Wear to The Holiday Season Pre-Game (Thanksgiving Dinner)
I hosted a trunkshow at my place two weeks ago, which wasn’t a trunkshow for food if you can believe that. It was for UK-based brand Liberowe, by Thalia Loubaton, who makes beautiful jackets.
I wore this one on the occasion of the event and am dropping it in because holiday dressing season is upon us…
I’m about to digress but I’ll bring us back — the look actually got me thinking that a good outfit to wear to your Thanksgiving meal next week could be something like this (on the casual but still festive end):
Sundial necklace (love a charm like this to loop into blue thread too), The Garment top (this one is cute [and on sale] too), La Double J pants (they’re nice like this too; or I like these with an elastic waist for $208), Toteme boots (these are a great shape too, or these if you like a pointier toe)
More on this later but back to the jackets — the key man at the trunk show really was this gorgeous long coat. I made off with the jacket version, which I plan to wear with its companion skirt like this:
But also like this:
While we’re on outfits, I’m dropping in one you could wear to more broadly inaugurate holiday dressing season with a dress styled over elastic waist pants and velvet slippers —
Or another that’s more subtle, more “getting dressed for the office but still eager to convey some spirit.”
Alternatively, I might wear this to a Friendsgiving I have tomorrow:
The t-shirt is Bally, but not yet avail. I do like this one from Bode, or here’s a button-down if that’s more your thing. Also love the particular shade of red on this sweater, but here’s one crewneck vest and one with a v in any case. The skirt is from TK (J. Crew has what seems like a similar one here), belt from Khaite and the tights are Calzedonia, and here are the Prada shoes.
And then finally, if you dare:
Tree ornament or menorah’s shamash on-the-loose depending on what you are pre-gaming for…
Have also been tracking the happenings of these sandals, which seem like they’d be a good foil to grey socks and stiff jeans, dark wash like these (or something more festive, like this). If any of you have them or have tried them on, what’s the back strap like? Per my ask from a few weeks ago re the pursuit of silver strappy sandals too, thanks to all who sent me a link to these from Rabanne for H&M.
Still on shoes: another pair that recently caught my attention are these from Arteana.
From the realm of things to wear over your outfits: look at this hat from Cawley Studio
Great to know it won’t blow away when it’s windy, even better that it can be fashioned into a choker if you want to take it off but only a little.
How do you think it would look with these sunglasses? A surprise delivery from Christopher Esber and a nice departure from the round frames I’ve been wearing — not quite a cat eye or bug-eye but a nice mix between the two.
My necklace is by Sapir Bachar
The rest of this outfit, btw, looked like this:
Changing tracks now to outerwear, I’ve been wearing one of two By Malene Birger coats a ton lately. The first is this one.
And the second is this one. It’s boxy and loose, but rigid and thick enough that its comfortable when worn with a heavy sweater under it, which means it can prob keep you pretty warm through a New York January (or even February) —
Found it with a matching skirt for re-sale here.
And then…have you been thinking about holiday party outfits? I really like what’s coming out of J. Crew on the more widely known scale
Have a great Thanksgiving and I’ll see you back here soon.
