Today’s Woman Now: What To Wear To Thanksgiving This Year.

Whether you’re getting dressed up, going casual, caring more about comfort, or simply staying in and owning the sweatpants look, there are so many ways you can go when it comes to holiday dressing. This Thanksgiving, try one of these inspired looks and you’ll be sure to impress whatever family you haven’t seen in a year or simply look super chic without looking like you tried too hard.

First, if you’re going to get dressed up, say with a dress or skirt, be sure to complete the look with a well-tailored and stylish coat. Like the Marc Jacobs one above, it is always safe to go with one that has a belt or that has some length, which gives it a more sophisticated and sleek look. With layering, you can tend to get bulky if you’re not careful. A good coat also makes a great first impression when reuniting with everyone for the holidays.

Next, if you’re going casual but still want to impress, try jeans and a sweater – a fall look you can never go wrong with if worn properly. Try a statement sweater with jeans and a pair of leather boots. Or, go with a simple sweater but add a statement vest, like this J. Crew one in a classic holiday red or even a trendy fur vest.

knit sweater dress mixes both dressy and casual if you’re not sure which way to go. A simple cream-colored one as seen above is a pretty neutral that gives you the opportunity to dress it up with fun accessories or stay casual with leggings and a plaid scarf.

White Hot! Summer’s hottest nail trend.

It’s a white hot summer this year! The clean and simple white nail polish trend is a total hit this season. Bold yet simple nails will be sure to make a statement with any summer look you try- sundress, shorts or bikini! The best part, it matches anything and we all love coordinating nails and outfits- don’t try to deny it girls! Celebs like Lea Michelle, Emmy Rossum, the Queen B (Beyonce) and Kim Kardashian have been spotted sporting this trend lately. A few brands that seem to be top picks- try Nars, Sephora by OPI, Essie and Zoya.

Look I’m Craving: Tassel Earrings

This season, I’m loving the tassel earring look! I just can’t get over it! I love it. It’s a look that’s also been spotted on several celebrities on the red carpet lately. Julianne Moore, Kate Hudson, Natalie Portman, and Katherine Heigl have recently caught my eye wearing this look. This look is sophisticated and vintage-classic but definitely has a fun element! A few of my favorites- Ralph Lauren ($34, Bloomingdale’s) Vince Camuto ($48, Nordstrom) and if you can afford it, Oscar de la Renta has a BEAUTIFUL pair ($395, Neiman Marcus). I’ve also seen a lot of brands and different styles of them on polyvore (www.polyvore.com)

Stay fashionable!
