What will you wear for Thanksgiving?

Mon Nov 06, 2017 11:39 pm

For Thanksgiving 2017, what are you planning to wear?

While in years past I have worn Fairy Tale pink button-downs, this year I have decided I will change it up a little, and will wear my new IZOD Heritage Essentials button-down in Saltwater Red. This is one of IZOD's Fall 2017 products. I am invited to a friend's house this Thanksgiving, so I might as well get dressed.

Pants with an elastic waist band if I am smart.

Hmm, clothes probably. But it is also likely that much of the day will be in PJ's. When I do dress it will be casual, jeans and a nice'ish Hawaiian shirt.

I'll be wearing my uniform which is either white with brown pinstripes or my company red Christmas polo.

I will probably wear a suit and tie. Someone has to set an example for a family who thinks that casual wear is suitable for a significant national holiday.

I'll be in boxers and a t-shirt. Or maybe PJ's if it's cold.

I have nowhere to go.

The OP should consider stepping up to replace Joan Rivers on the red carpet to comment on people's clothing choices...such obsession with clothing (EVERY HOLIDAY, EVERY YEAR) is not normal, unless you're a fashion major.

To answer the question: not pink. That sums it up.

Ah yes...suit and tie to a holiday where people are supposed to be thankful for what they have but leave the dining table to go to a store and rack up debt to purchase more stuff. What's wrong with casual wear?

More significant national holidays are 4th of July, Veterans' Day, Memorial Day, and even Christmas. Even for all of these, people wear casual clothing (I have yet to see or hear about a family coming down to the Christmas tree in formal clothing to open gifts, or a family going out one summer evening in formal clothing to watch a fireworks display celebrating the Declaration of Independence).

Memorial Day and Veterans Day are not generally considered more important than Thanksgiving. Christmas is, but a lot of people will dress up for Xmas dinner; I certainly always have. Ditto for Thanksgiving.

I have special stretchy suit pants, so I have the best of both worlds :)

Agreed. Many people don't even get Veterans' Day off.

What about all the people that work Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, Labor Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July? In short people (especially in occupations for public safety, pilots, ATC etc) are working every holiday.

But that is a minority of industries that don't give those federal holidays off. Most employers don't give the other federal holidays (Martin Luther King Day, Presidents Day, Columbus Day, and Veterans Day) off.

Whatever feels right that morning, no pressure!

For the 10 years I was married Thanksgiving was hell. We would wake up in Naples, FL. where we would have breakfast and catch the first flight out of RSW for DEN. I would watch the parade on my F9 flight home to Denver and drive an hour North to Ft. Collins as soon as we landed to have lunch with my family. After staying long enough for people to know I was there I would head back out for the airport and jump on a DEN-DFW that would get me into Dallas in time for dinner.

Forget Xmas. It is nothing more than a crass commercial activity.

On the 4th, Veteran's and Memorial Days we are apt to have parades with many formally uniformed participants. There was a time when adults along the parade route dressed appropriately.

Thanks for reminding me of Dylan way back 53 years ago. Nostalgic stuff, just like dressing up for holidays :-)

I would re-enact the final scene from the Robert Altman film "Pret-a-Porter" but there will probably be children around, so probably a sweater and pants or shirt and shorts, depending on how cold it is and where I am and how I feel....

The written word really does not translate with my sarcastic tone. Speech to text would work so much better with this. Maybe I should have just ignored this post.....

That's a case of personal opinion. Some might argue that remembering to be thankful for what you have is much more important than dwelling on the past.

Actually yes I do. Most people did not have "dress up" and "dress down" options. They would wear what they had, probably cleaned up a bit.

Nope, my pink wardrobe is mostly polo shirts and button downs, with some pink fleeces as well.

I suspect that my wardrobe choice won't change much from my typical day to day uniform of "athleisure" stuff. Basically, it's the typical housewife of Orange County uniform these days. Lululemon compression pants - I have a number of these, some black, some with prints - purple, blue, grey... sneakers, and depending on the temperature that day, if it's typical California warm, probably will do a tank top with a built-in shelf bra. If it's cold, I break out the velour hoodie, probably the grey one.

If I end up with an invite to something, then that changes rather dramatically. I'd do a nice flowing tunic top, probably in a dark blue. I have a really nice one with a pattern that's perfect for fall - almost looks like autumn leaves on a navy blue background. And it's long enough (barely) that I can get away with just using black tights as pants. And some nice boots that go up to my knees...

I will come home from work, in my "work clothes", dockers and a casual button down...of whatever color came out of my closet the night before. I will change, do final prep and leave instructions for my daughter to put the bird in. I will get up around noon, and prepare the stuffing and anything else, whilst still in my sleep pants and a tee-shirt. For the dinner itself, I will dress much like I was dressed 24 hours before...for work.

There was also a time when people dressed appropriately for the theatre or concert recital. People would even dress up to fly. Now, sometimes the actors on the stage don't even bother to wear any clothes.

But I guess dressing up becomes rather pointless when your usual day wear changes from overalls and hob-nailed boots or waders and becomes a suit and tie. Then dressing up is simply changing the tie you wear. Who notices the difference? After being in a stuffy suit all day, some people would rather wind down than dress up. To each their own. Whatever makes them happy, as long as it's clean.
