What to Wear to a Thanksgiving Tailgate


When you head to the arena this Thanksgiving, do so with a festive pep in your sneaker-wedged step. Though loyal fans may cheer on the Dallas Cowboys or Baltimore Ravens in ill-fitting NFL jerseys and faded snapbacks, be the belle of the ballgame in sporty-meets-chic style. The key to pulling off this relaxed look is not to get too literal—leave the sports bras, wristbands, and yoga pants for the gym. Instead, couple your closet staples with items that have an unexpected athletic appeal. Are you a baubles babe? Then pull out a bejeweled baseball cap. Looking make your sneakers more ladylike? Work it in wedged wonders. Mixed-prints princess? Layer a numbered sweatshirt over plaid. Channeling Rihanna in Alexander WangRita Ora in House of Holland, or our own GLAM blogger Hallie Wilson in neon Nikes is easier than you think.
