What to Wear to All Your Friendsgiving Parties This Year

While we all have a special place in our hearts for the "real" star of November holidays, Thanksgiving, we must admit that we love Friendsgiving just as much (if not more).

After all, this special event is usually less drama, less pressure and way more fun with your friends—with just as much food involved. Plus, you can go with a theme if you'd like or keep it classic, depending on whatever your friends are feeling.

With that said, though, Friendsgivings can range pretty widely between fancy and totally free from frills. Whether you're hosting your own this year or have about five different ones to attend with all your different friend groups, picking an outfit to wear to your Friendsgiving event(s) can be more stressful than it might seem at first. Worry not, though, as we're here to help guide you with this list of what to wear to all your Friendsgivings this year.

What to Wear to Your Fanciest Friend's Friendsgiving

Got a friend that wants to make their Friendsgiving a total event this year? You know, the one that sent a full-on E-vite or paper invitations, already has a set playlist and has already planned out their classy fall décor and table settings? Yeah, you're going to need to dress up for that one. That doesn't mean you need to show up wearing something you hate or that just feels straight-up uncomfortable, though. Instead, try one of the ideas we have listed below:

  • A silk top with black skinny jeans and heels
  • A flowy maxi dress
  • A silky midi dress (pair with a leather jacket if you're chilly)
  • Tights with a shorter skater skirt style dress
  •  A solid-colored mini dress with over-the-knee boots

What to Wear to the Super Chill Couch-Fest Friendsgiving

Got plans to get together in a friend's living room and eat copious amounts of food on the couch? A simple event like that can be just as fantastic as the fanciest of Friendsgivings, but the nice part is that you don't need to put in so much effort for your outfit. Keep it simple and keep it comfy, but you don't need to shy away from still looking cute. A chunky knit sweater with leggings and boots will do, as would mom jeans with a layered look. When in doubt, ask your friend who's hosting what they're wearing so that you don't show up looking out of place if everyone decides to show up in sweats.

What to Wear for the Friendsgiving With the People You're Not Super Close With

Sometimes you get invited to things with people that you know and like, but that you're not extremely close with (yet, anyway). Planning an outfit for these events can be especially tricky, as you might not know the host well enough to feel confident in what to expect from the setup. You can always shoot a text to someone you know that's going who you are a bit more familiar with and ask what they're planning on wearing, but if you don't want to do that, you can try wearing a simple yet classy look. Think versatile styles like a good pair of jeans with a casual yet nice top, a sundress with boots or even your nicest sweater with heeled booties.

What to Wear to the Friendsgiving You Know Your Crush Will Be Attending

No need to panic if you see your crush's name on the RSVP list for your next Friendsgiving. When planning your outfit, just remember that the best thing to wear in this situation is something that you feel your absolute best in. Whatever items you feel your most confident in, this is probably a good bet for what to wear. Remember, though, you don't want to go with anything too skin-tight or uncomfortable (after all, it's pretty hard to flirt when you're feeling constrained by your clothes after devouring some delicious food).
