  • 5 Perfect Dresses For A Thanksgiving Dinner Party

    Thanksgiving is almost here! As of today, you're 10 days away from delicious Thanksgiving food. Which, of course, also means that it's time to put together that perfect outfit for your Thanksgiving dinner party. Whether attending your own family dinner, your significant other's dinner, or a friend's, you'll want to be dressed for the occasion.

    Most Thanksgiving dinners are pretty casual, but some can be more dressy, so make sure to find out the dress code ahead of time. If you'd like to go with a nice pair of jeans or pants and sweater, last week we showed you our 5 favorite sweaters for holiday parties (or gift giving!). Rocking a dress is always a go-to option, as well, though, so today we're showing our our 5 favorite dresses for a thanksgiving dinner (which are of course also perfect for any other holiday party you may have coming up). These dresses are all conservative enough for a family dinner, while still being so on-trend. Check them out below!

    Lace Fit And Flare Dress

    Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress

    Black lace is always a staple for the holidays, and we love it in this Long Sleeve Lace Mini Dress. This lace dress features a sexy illusion back, long sleeves, and a v-neck with a keyhole. The long sleeves makes this dress so perfect for the colder fall and winter months. This dress also comes in the color Ivory if you'd like to rock the Winter White trend.

    Crochet Fit and Flare Dress

    Crochet Black Dress

    This Beautiful Crochet Mini Dress is similar to the first lace mini dress, but with a crochet look instead of lace. The sexy, yet classy style features a crochet bodice, a-line waist and long illusion sleeves. This dress also comes in red if you're looking for a more bold color.

    Winter White Dress

    Shail K 3665

    You can also rock long sleeves in a white dress with Shail K. 3665, a 3/4 sleeve mini that's truly a piece of art. The fun beaded design sets this dress apart giving it a stylish, lively, one of a kind look that's so easy to dress up for a more formal part or down for a more casual dinner.

    Red Lace Cocktail Dress

    Alyce 4416

    Red, green, and blue are always staple color choices for the holidays if you want a brighter look. We especially love Alyce 4416 because it's a classic cocktail dress look that will never go out of style. From its v-cut neckline, open back, and rhinestones sprinkled upon the sheer lace sheath over linking, this dress is sure to be a crowd pleaser no matter what the event. You can easily add a cardigan over this dress for a Thanksgiving dinner, and drop the cardigan for some night time fun. This dress also comes in colors Black/Nude, Blue Coral/Nude, Burgundy/Nude, and Deep Plum/Nude, all perfect colors for any holiday event.

    Classic LBD

    Sherri Hill 32006

    While the first two dresses we mentioned are great black dress choices, if you want a more classic form fitting LBD, go with Sherri Hill 32006, a short jersey and lace dress. This totally versatile dress features cap sleeves, lace bodice, a v-neckline, and a stretch fitted jersey body. This is definitely a dress that you can easily wear time and time again, from Fall and Winter right into Spring and Summer.

    Whatever you end up wearing for your Thanksgiving dinner, have a wonderful time hanging out with your family and friends!

  • Dress Up for Thanksgiving in Shail K. KL3225

    With Thanksgiving only a week away, we are in totally in Turkey mode, and we can't wait to dress up for the holiday! While Thanksgiving may not be a well known holiday for dressing to impress the way that New Year's Eve is, there's no reason that you can't put on a cute dress to celebrate.

    It might not be a sexy little black dress kind of night, but there are definitely plenty of dresses that can be worn to a Thanksgiving party. Since it's technically still Fall, but getting colder and colder out by the day, we love the idea of picking a cocktail dress that shows off the colors of Fall (like tan, gold, brown, yellow, or orange), but also has long sleeves to keep you a little warmer as the cold sets in. That's why this week's Dress of the Week is Shail K. style KL3225 - we thought it made for a perfect Turkey Day dress with the nude and gold colorings and long sleeves!

    shail-k-kl3225

    Style KL3225 is a truly original Shail K. creation! This long sleeve, nude colored cocktail dress boasts a unique, hand-beaded exotic bead pattern with a beautifully accentuated waistline and hem. The high back and neck make this dress perfect for day or nighttime wear. It's definitely a dress that you can easily wear to a dinner, and then out with your friends to a party later that night. Tone the look down with black or nude heels for dinner, and spice it up with sparkly gold heels like in the picture above for a party.

    shail-k-kl3225

    This a dependable dress that you'll be able to get a lot of use out of, whether for Thanksgiving, another Holiday party, Homecoming, or any other formal event. Do you love it as much as we do? Leave a comment below and let us know!

  • Dressing Up for Thanksgiving Dinner

    Halloween is officially over, and we're now in our first week of November - that means the next holiday coming up is Thanksgiving!

    Dressing up for Thanksgiving all depends on what type of Thanksgiving dinner the host has put together; some have very casual dinners (where you can wear jeans...or even sweatpants if you're just staying home!), but others have a more formal dinner (and by "more formal," we just mean a little more dressed up than normal, versus an actual formal event, like prom). If you're going to a more dressy dinner, it's good to look nice, but no need to go over the top. Read on for some of our tips on finding the right outfit for a more dressy Thanksgiving dinner.

    Since it's Thanksgiving, a more comfortable option is to go with a stretchy or loose fitting dress (like a tunic dress). You'll be glad you chose this type of dress while eating all the food that comes along with the holiday (especially since they hide the tummy)! Two of our favorite more loose fitting dresses are from Shail K. - styles KK3143 and KK3149.

    Style KK3143 is a Grecian style flowy dress that comes in colors red and black - both colors are perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner! Style KK3149 is a tunic dress that can be worn with leggings for a more casual look or with stockings to dress it up. It comes in colors black and ivory, however we recommend going with black for Thanksgiving (you'll see why below!).

    Another important thing to keep in mind with this holiday surrounded by eating is the potential to drop the food on your clothes. Whether you tend to be a very clumsy person or not, it's inevitable that something will be spilled during the night. Because of this, we recommend picking dark colors or prints that will hide any gravy, stuffing, or cranberry sauce that may find its way onto you. Going with a white or light colored dress may leave you showing off your dinner, rather than your fashionable outfit; with Thanksgiving being in Fall, the darker colors are part of the festive vibe of the holiday, anyway. Scroll down to see some more darker colored dresses that are perfect for Thanksgiving.

    Jovani 171150 comes in black
    Mac Duggal 76171R comes in colors red & black
    Sherri Hill 1522 comes in colors black, red, ivory, navy, nude, & plum
    Evenings by Allure A365 comes in chocolate & is on sale for only $39.99!
