Some of us have to travel to visit our families and friends on Thanksgiving, and we all know how stressful traveling can be!

We want you to enjoy Thanksgiving, whether you’re celebrating this weekend or in November! So we’ve gathered a list of a few essentials to pack so you’re Thanksgiving is the best it can be. If you’re not traveling, this list could still be super helpful!

A Comfortable Convertible Bra

Jeanie Seamless Strapless Molded Microfiber bra by Affinitas Parfait

The easiest way to bulk up a suitcase is by packing a bunch of options, but why do that when you only need one?

A convertible bra is fantastic for any woman to have, as you can pull a strap here and there to make it work for whatever cut your top may be. The Jeanie Seamless Strapless style from Affinitas Parfait is perfect for switching around in a pinch, plus it’s seamless!

A Fabulous Coat

Fall is one of those seasons where you never quite know if it’ll be chilly or warm, so having a packable, easy traveling coat close by at all times is essential.

Take a cue from Meghan Markle, who is winning in the coat department this year. She loves herself a loose, open trench style coat, which is perfect for those unsettling days. It’ll work well with any ensemble and will add that extra layer you need.

A Chic Sweater Dress

Perhaps the easiest trend to wear this season that’s also incredibly chic is the sweater dress. Wear it oversized or close to the body – either way, it’s a universally flattering must-have.

Just channel one of Bella Hadid’s most buzzed about outfits and try yours with a pair of knee-high boots. You can make it work all weekend by throwing your leggings and some sneakers into a suitcase for a lazy day. Try this trend with the Devon Short Knit Sweater Dress from Arianne.


Leggings are perfect for added warmth when necessary, or for those days when you want to be comfortable but put together.

You can wear anything you’ve packed with these – a dress, your sweater dress, a long tee – to change up your look without having to pack multiple outfits. We have leggings with added shapewear by Body Hush, or stretchy and super-soft fabric leggings from Montelle.

Some Trusty Shapewear

Miracle Thigh Slimmer by Body Hush

On a weekend of indulgence, a good piece of shapewear will work wonders to keep you comfortable in whatever outfit you’re wearing. Opt for a comfortable, well-made piece that’s easy to pull on and off at your leisure. A thigh slimmer like the above from Body Hush can cover almost your entire midsection, and is made out of the most durable fabrics for an easy-to-wear fit.

We also have a whole list of other options for shapewear to get you through whatever Thanksgiving festivities you have planned!

Cozy PJS

Sleeping in a bed that’s not your own is tough. Make yourself feel more at home with a great pair of PJS that are soft, warm, and remind you of relaxing on the couch with some coffee on a Sunday morning.

You also want a set that you’ll feel comfortable wearing in front of family and friends that doesn’t reveal too much. We think a cute matching set is best, like this stunning blue top and pant from Blush with a little hint of lace. Fleur’t Intimates also has the most luxurious sleepwear, like the downtown set with hints of satin and pockets in the shorts!
