Happy Turkey Day Philly! I hate the idea of wearing sweatpants on a holiday, although, we can not ruin a new dress while prepping the stuffing. If you're trying to look somewhat stylish this Thanksgiving, here are some trendy ideas you can hit up your wardrobe for!
Without going too "Annie Hall" for Thanksgiving ladies, draw a little inspiration from the boys and the Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 collection. Surprising print and pattern mixes, like that plaid sweater and leopard print blouse you have in your closet, are killer combos you never thought of. Leather and tartan....why not? Just add some texture with a velvet, slim pant and have your argyle socks peeking out. The boys can follow suit by pairing fair-isle sweaters and flannel shirts underneath tweed blazer. Ralph Lauren's modern version of the English country-side reminds me of my holiday dinners. It's like your crazy, cool aunt you drink hot whiskeys with or your fabulous gay uncle that pulls off every designer, in every color and fabric. This holiday, concoct your outfit, as you would the morning's delicious leftovers, and mix it all together!
