Thanksgiving 2011 Dress Code Ideas
I love dressing for the holidays, especially Thanksgiving day and Christmas!! Those holidays are the FALL holidays and I can wear coats, scarves, boots, and whatever else SCREAMS United Kingdom weather-wear!! As I am residing in California… the opportunity for those kinds of outfits are slim… to none. However, a lady can dream- and so I have dreamt up Thanksgiving Day genres and filled them with adorable outfits!! COME!! Get inspiration from the cutest “Thanksgiving-y” ensembles.
THANKSGIVING DAY 2011 “GRACE”=
Inspired by the sweet and innocent colours of cream, taupe, champagne, and ivory. Although history has been seriously mislead to our younger generations [thinking that Puritans and Natives all sat down from an innocent Thanksgiving together where they all said grace and ate turkey], when in all actuality Small Pox blankets were involved as well as cannibalism… This look is in lieu of how blissful innocence can be… :] ha.
This board was put together with the serious love all of the different colours of jeans. Thanksgiving 2011 will be marked by the denim that had a loud splash of colour!! I am seeing these jeans sold everywhere, and I have to say that the burnt orange ones have to be one of my favourites!! However all colours represent Fall and the gorgeous colours of harvest.
THANKSGIVING DAY 2011 “PARADE”=
“Parade” was inspired by the casual Thanksgiving-er. I have certainly attended Thanksgiving dinners where everyone is required to be dressed in formal wear, but that is not the case in my family. We like to be cosy & casual as we sit and watch the Parade!!
THANKSGIVING DAY 2011 “TRADITION”=
Well you can hardly go wrong with DARKS, especially Black & Navy!! Wether it be dressy or casual, blacks and navy’s hold a certain “strength” in their colour and so of course these shades never go out of style… Simplicity has always been part of tradition and therefore- so has “the DARKS”. Ha, think modern Pilgram if you will….
THANKSGIVING DAY 2011 “FESTIVITIES”=
Browns, oranges, and whatever hues fall in between always give me the feeling of Thanksgiving time!! Especially if they have patterns on them, like the floor length skirt in the lower LEFT hand corner… All of these outfits in “Festivities” remind me of outfits for Thanksgiving carnivals or primary school plays where everything Thanksgiving-y is taken so literally: turkey’s everywhere… kids dressed up as “Indians”… and corn, squash, and cornucopias are hanging everywhere. It’s more the cheesy side of the holiday- but that is why you can put a “FASHION SPIN” on it and make it look chic!!
