Two days until Thanksgiving and I have nothing to wear! OK, I have things, I just don't have the thing. Dressing for Thanksgiving is like dressing for a major event because you're probably going to see a lot of family and friends you don't see the other 364 days of the year and thus you need to look great.
But instead of staying up nights with thoughts of "Are leopard pants appropriate for a family dinner?" I'm taking my wardrobe inspiration from It Girls' outfits, like Ashley Olsen or Zosia Mamet. In the gallery there's a look for every kind of Thanksgiving, from the beer and football kind to the black tie swanky kind, so find your It Girl spirit guide and make getting dressed on Thursday a little easier.
