Thanksgiving: shawl sweater, casual button-down, dark jeans, chukkas.  Office Holiday Party: sport coat, dress shirt, argyle sweater, wool trousers, casual oxfords.  Christmas Open House Party: button down, casual tie, v-neck sweater, chinos, dress boots.  Christmas Day: santa hat, festive Christmas cardigan, relaxed jeans, moccasins.

The holidays are supposed to be a break in our everyday lives — something special that lifts us out of the mundane. Part of what makes an occasion feel special for us, and contributes to an atmosphere that makes it feel special to others, is how we dress. Sit down to Thanksgiving dinner in a t-shirt and jeans and it feels like any other day; dress a little sharper and it feels more like a holiday.
