Though it feels like Halloween was just last week, Thanksgiving is already upon us. Time to pack our bags, gear up for marathon eating sessions, and head home to see family. Whether you’re visiting your folks or your SO’s family, you’ll want to put your best foot forward. Here’s a casually sophisticated outfit that will do the trick:
1. Start with a basic pair of chinos. For the most flattering look, try a flat front chino–no pleats.
2. Put on a patterned dress shirt. The quietly chic tattersall print on this shirt speaks volumes about your sense of style. When in doubt, go with stripes or checks in a distinctive color combination.
3. Layer on a cozy cardigan. Bonus style points for (1) a chunky hand-woven knit, and (2) a shawl collar on the cardigan (as pictured).
4. Finish the look off with sophisticated accessories: a tartan print scarf that echoes the tattersall print on the shirt, casual loafers, and an overnight bag that reflects your impeccable personal style.
