It’s that time of the year and I could not be more excited. Thanksgiving week marks the beginning of the Holiday season and I know it can be stressful to figure out what to wear for every single occasion. That’s why I wanted to create 3 super easy to recreate and cute Thanksgiving outfits with Spanx Leggings (or any leggings you have!).
I’ve been talking about these style formulas and how to maximize what you have in your closet a lot lately, but I’m going to share it here again because it is my main goal to help you make the most out of the things you already have in your closet. I try to use a lot of basic pieces too. This way you can probably relate more with these looks. Hopefully I inspire you to create something similar without having to buy every single piece that I’m wearing (or anything at all).
How to maximize the pieces you have in your closet?
The easiest way is to follow the ‘outfit formulas’ you’ll see below. My goal with sharing these posts is to inspire you to recreate some of these looks with things you already own, help you dress better and easily every day, so you can feel better and go out to the world feeling confident! Dressing well can do that for you!
It’s not the only thing you need, but whenever I feel good about myself I feel like I can kill it! You know what I’m saying?
Step by step on how to create your own looks:
- Pick one of the outfit formulas below to follow.
- Take out similar pieces out of your closet and separate them in piles (all the dress options together, all the t-shirt options together, all the shoes options together, etc).
- In this case the ‘Hero piece’ are the Spanx Leggings, so try to pick a similar one and create looks around it.
- Start mixing! Follow the formula. That’s really it!
- Take some photos for future reference. That way you won’t have to think about it too much in the future.
I honestly hope this helps! If you have any questions, seriously, don’t hesitate to ask! I’m here to help ?
3 cute Thanksgiving outfits with leggings
I wanted to quickly put together these 3 cute Thanksgiving outfits that are super easy to recreate for next week. I wrote a review on the Spanx leggings that you can read here. I’m covering everything from sizing to care instructions and also 4 ways to style them for different occasions. Make sure to check it out here.
Leggings are so perfect for Thanksgiving day because they are so stretchy LOL, so you can eat whatever you want! I know I’m wearing mine on Thursday LOL. I don’t know how they did it with these Spanx leggings but they suck everything in, in a very gentle way, which makes them very comfortable and flattering.
I included this piece as a part of my Capsule wardrobe for Fall. Make sure to check out that post too.
Anyways, here you have the 3 cute Thanksgiving outfits to recreate.
I basically followed the same formula (I’ll explain more with each look):
Outfit formula: Cozy sweater + leggings + booties
Also read: how to wear a long cardigan
Outfit formula: Booties + Leggings + Turtle neck + Long Cardi
The first look is the coziest one too. It’s usually very cold in Chicago this time of the year, so I try my best to look cute but still cozy (I get cold easily, which doesn’t help).
Leggings are very easy to style. You can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. This look is very easy to recreate. Basically just take out a sweater or even a T-shirt and layer it with any long cardigan you have in your closet. Have fun with accessories too! Add a hat, statement earrings or necklace or have fun replacing the booties with OTK boots if you have them.
Outfit formula: Booties + Leggings + Skirt + Statement Sweater
I created this look to remind you that you can also wear your leggings as tights! And they are sexy tights too!
Layer them with a skirt or even a dress. If you pick a plain skirt, then choose a fun statement sweater with cool sleeves or a beautiful neckline. If you pick a basic sweater, then have fun accesorizing it with a nice necklace or earrings.
Again, I chose booties, but if you have OTK boots, then go for it! Another thing you could try is to style the leggings with a little black dress and cute black boots and then add a nice necklace that pops. Have fun with your closet!
Outfit formula: Booties + Leggings + White T-shirt + Lightweight trench
The easiest way to start styling you faux leather leggings is to pair them with a white T-shirt. Then start adding layers around that. I didn’t want to pick a long cardigan again, so I chose this lightweight trench that was in the back of my closet.
Since it has a cascade front detail, I didn’t add a necklace, but feel free to do so if the piece you chose has a plain front. If you have printed booties and are wearing a lot of neutral colors on top, then pick fun shoes.
Keep in mind that all of these looks are just for inspiration. I gave you a lot of different options for each look, hopefully to inspire you to look at those overlooked pieces in the back of your closet and think a little bit outside the box. Have fun creating some cute Thanksgiving outfits!!
