Someone asked me the other day, “Is there a dress code for Thanksgiving?” That's a very good question. It really depends on the host, different meal set-ups calls for dress codes. I compiled a small list to help you.

- Buffet set-up – Here you can dress up in casual attire. Jeans, shorts, sweat pants, t-shirts or sweaters will do, anything that will be comfortable to wear is the key. Mostly everyone will be standing up and sitting down to get food.
- Sit down, passing the food set-up – The dress code here is smart casual. Shorts, sweat pants and ordinary t-shirts won't do. Jeans, long pants, and nice dress shirts is the bets way to go. Spills and mess will surely occur and many of us don't want a our Thanksgiving Dresses to get ruined.
- Sit down, plated dinner set-up – here, we take it up a notch, we go semi-formal. Usually here, the meal is either plated by the host or he or she has hired a professional to cook and serve the meal. Wearing long sleeved dress shirts, dress pants, Thanksgiving dresses or party dresses is the way to go.
- Sit down, five or more course meal set-up – consider this the highest form of dinner invite you can receive. Here, food is cooked and served by a professional caterer and the nice fancy stuff are served. The number of guests is more than twenty or so. The dress code for this occasion is strictly formal such as a nice suite for the guys and evening gowns for the girls.

Just always remember to ask your host what the dress attire will be. You don't want to celebrate Thanksgiving under dressed or over dressed.
