When getting ready to attend a Thanksgiving dinner it's always tempting to go for comfort, but us fashion lovers can't resist a reason to dress up.

For this week's look we are taking inspiration from the Plymouth Rock Pilgrims, a trend that has been going strong for many seasons now. 

A play of contrasts, the Sigmund Knit Dress by Temperley London is woven from the softest merino wool into a fitted sheath shape. Tied collars and ruffled white bib dresses are synonymous with Pilgrim style, so needless to say this design is ideal for the occasion. Obviously, buckle toed shoes are in order and these by Roger Vivier are the perfect match to our chic black and white dress. The elevated heel make these pumps a luxury for daytime or after dark dining. No Thanksgiving look would be complete without a hint of cranberry. The 'Sloan' bag by Michael Kors features envelope flap layers over a color-pop inner flap, adding an elevated look to a boxy, structured bag in smooth leather. Showing 'thanks' via our jewelry, this gold tone bangle not only complements our ensemble but also sends a positive message. For makeup we decided to play up our eyes with a palette filled with the shades of fall. The secret to iconic, mesmerizing eyes lies in Charlotte Tilbury's Luxury Palette. It contains four color-coded eyeshadows that offer you a complete eye color wardrobe in addition to an easy-to-use application ritual that's totally fail-safe. So get ready to carve the turkey and mash the potatoes, because guess who's coming to dinner in style?
