Mens Thanksgiving Style
For menswear on Thanksgiving, I suggest going with something classic. When I think classic I usually think of JFK or Sean Connery/James Bond. If you need help with ideas the ones above are classic and fresh look. They exude a laid-back but still casual and put-together look that's perfect for the holiday and crisp weather. I found these looks at Express and J. Crew, but you could also probably find something similar in your closet.
Womens Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas
|Medi-Skirts; Leather Shorts (add cream or brown matching tights underneath to stay warm); Chunky sweaters; Red pants; Fur vest; "Nerd" faux glasses; and just a cute skirt outfit--All perfect and fashionable Thanksgiving looks.|
Every year before I go home I am confronted with the dilemma of what to wear on Thanksgiving. I want to wear something warm, comfortable and "Thanksgiving-like," but I still want to be stylish and chic. I look through the internet, magazines and catalogs for what feels like hours to find the perfect Thanksgiving outfit. So, this year I thought I'd help you out by putting all my favorite looks all in one place (I don't know why more sites can't do this?!). Above is my selection of fashionable and seasonal outfit ideas, from casual to dressy, for Thanksgiving. And, below is my favorite "Jenna's Picks" for Thanksgiving from the J.Crew Catalog, November 2008, because it is so autumnal and classic. Now that you have some great Thanksgiving outfit ideas, the trick is to find similar looking pieces in your closet!

EXPERT TIP: to keep your lipstick in place on your lips, make sure you use a red lip-liner to line and fill-in where you want your lipstick to stay. Then lightly add a swipe or two of lipstick to even out the color and add moisture to your lips.

1. Cut 100 to 300 calories a day in advance. This can be as little as not having cheese on your sandwich for lunch, or swapping that latte for black coffee or tea instead. This way you don't have to resort fat-free stuffing and Tofurkey for Thanksgiving dinner. Just remember to control your portions of the real stuff.
2. Avoid Snacking. One study found that 9% of Thanksgiving calories are consumed in smack form before the actual meal. So, if you're cooking Thanksgiving dinner start cooking right after breakfast when you're not hungry or chew on gum while you're cooking to avoid the urge to eat. If you're not cooking, try to stay out of the kitchen or again, chew gum to avoid snacking.
3. Avoid Binge Eating. Don't not eat all day. That's just setting yourself up for bingeing during dinner. To avoid binging, eat a low-calorie breakfast and snack on veggies later if you get hungry.
4. Toss the Heavy Leftovers. Once Thanksgiving dinner is over get rid of all the heavy food like the desserts and potatoes, to avoid turning a one time indulgence into a week's worth of excess. Keep veggies and turkey to eat with a salad later in the week.
