We love the idea of wearing pants and a jacket to holiday parties. There’s something about mixing masculinity with feminine sparkle and glitz that feels uber confident and sexy. This jacket from Boden also comes in silver and black velvet, and the sparkly jeans from Joe’s also come in indigo. Craving more festive fancy pants and party jackets? We love:

Unless you’re an online shopping wizard (Outfituation’s ‘Gift Lists’ debuting soon!), it’s inevitable that you’ll be venturing out into actual stores for some grocery and gift shopping. Instead of overheating in a sweater (hello stuffy stores, warm crowds and long lines), we love to layer a shirt and jacket to allow for varying temperatures. This one is from Madewell – they have a ton of cute shirts for both wearing and gifting (some at 20% off through Nov. 24). This jacket is from C Wonder. If you haven’t checked them out lately, you seriously need to! They’re currently offering 30% off everything. Happy shopping!

What to Wear on Thanksgiving Day

Invited to celebrate Thanksgiving with friends or relatives? Arrive in both style and comfort in a great pair of flare jeans – a more comfortable alternative to tighter, skinny jeans. We love this pair from Frame Denim; it features a higher rise and a mid-weight, stretchy denim. Perfect for pumpkin pie-ing. Our other favorites include:

  • Gap’s 1969 Long and Lean Jeans (these jeans have a 4 star rating and at $69.95 they’re hard to beat).
  • If 7 for All Mankind is your go-to brand, these lighter washed flare jeans are an awesome choice.
  • flare jean from Free People that are actually  ‘pull-on’ jeans (they have a faux-front closure and elastic waistband). But they’re definitely not your grandma’s pants. They come in several colors and have a boho, cool vibe. Kinda like a pajama jean if you ask us, which is a great turkey, football, celebrating, lounging kind of jean!
1. Kate Spade Earrings $68.00 / 2. Case Mate 24 Karat Gold Leaf iPhone 6 Case $50.00 / 3. Elizabeth and James Ring $95.00 / 4. Cos Sweater $99.00 / 5. J Crew Parka $365.00 / 6.
