How to Be A Fashionable Hostess this Thanksgiving

Being the host of a large holiday dinner can be stressful at times, but it can also be very rewarding and fun. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to seat so many people, how you’re going to decorate the table, and of course, what food you’re going to serve.

First, you must pick your color scheme. Are you craving warm fall tones like orange, beige, rustic brown, or natural green? With this color scheme you could use your left over pumpkins from Halloween as decorative pieces. Orange napkins and gold-detailed silverware will go perfectly with your delicious pumpkin pie.

For the centerpiece, all you need is a simple design. After all, everyone will be too focused on the food to even notice, right? Think about nature as your inspiration. Use fake greens, pine cones, leaves, and/or fruit to design your own beautiful creation.

Perhaps rustic orange, burnt brown, and beige are too simple for your taste. Make your table more colorful by adding one bright color to your rustic, harvest color theme. In this example from House Beautiful, a hot pink accent is used all throughout the décor.

Fall’s Most Versatile Fashion Item: The Black Ankle Bootie

Wouldn’t it be great if there were one item in your closet that could transform into the perfect fashion accessory for any event or occasion? Well this season you’re in luck because black ankle booties have made an impression at all your favorite retail stores! An article on Popsugar shows us several ways we can take our black ankle booties from one occasion to the next!

Heading to a fashionable event? Throw on a pair of your highest stiletto booties with a chic cocktail dress, and you’ll rock the show!

Perhaps your plans don’t include a prestigious fashion event; perhaps you’re just heading to a laid-back gathering. There’s a bootie for that too! Try a flat, cutout bootie, like Jeffrey Campbell’s Everly bootie featured below.

If you’re heading to a friend’s party and you’re looking to be the most stylish one there, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black, cowboy-like high heel booties paired with a pair of skinny jeans, a chic blouse, and a leather jacket.

While black booties are great for informal occasions, high heel pointed-toe black leather booties can be perfect for a formal work event or party! Dress up your chic booties with a long dress or a little black cocktail dress.

As great as it would be to own five to ten pairs of black booties in a slightly different style, that may not always be an option for us! If you’re looking to buy just one pair that will get you through your multiple occasions, look for a pair that has a two-to-three inch high chunky heel, and an elegant yet simple silver or gold detailing. Look for a simple buckle, a cool zipper, or a hanging chain!

Let your black ankle booties take you from morning until night with a simple wardrobe change! Keep up on all the hottest trends by following StyleChatMobile on Instagram!
