Hostess with the Mostess – Practical Outfits That Look Amazing

In a year like none other, we give hugs and kudos to you. Taking on the role of host, whether your group is just family or social bubble, is a herculean affair…but we don’t have to tell you that.

You’ve done your preparation on the cleaning, the seating, the food and drinks…so why leave your outfit to something you throw on last minute? Do yourself this huge favor, and set aside some time to plan and lay out your meet-and-greet look. Even with everything set up, you’re still going to be doing a lot before, during and after the meal, so you’re going to need an outfit that can move as gracefully and looks as chic as you do!

Our editors are here to help with seven outfits that will help you check those boxes off your list, including some of the cutest, but oh-so-important facial masks coordinated to each outfit. Things may be a little different this year, but fashion never goes out of style…


What’s the holidays without a little sparkle? We love how this outfit is perfectly put together to keep you moving between the kitchen and the table. Easy stretch pants and a stacked heel will keep you comfy all dinner long while the sparkly sequined top and hoops remind everyone that you are the gold standard. And of course, with a mask like this, you’ll love looking stylish while keeping safe.


The day may get crazy, but you’ll be going with the flow with this ensemble. Soft, fluid jersey-knit up top and flowy geometric print below in fun, autumn-inspired colors. Give your lobes a little twinkle with some mixed metals while these strappy stacked booties keep your feet firmly grounded. A pretty blush pink mask and your look is complete.


Anticipating your time will be a little tight? This one-and-done maxi dress will come to your rescue. Just slide into these suede boots, pop on your pearls and mask, and you are all set to face the crowd in no time flat!


Lux textures make for an outfit you’ll love to move in. Rich velvet pants and a flowy print blouse are leveled up with a pair of chic mod earrings and a pair of booties that look so cool, you won’t believe how comfortable they are. How to top such an amazing party look? How about some shimmering sequins on your mask? Bring on the turkey!



Is this year’s feast happening on the patio? Stay warm without having to cozy up to the outdoor heater with a frothy, puffed sleeve sweater while a gorgeous pleated skirt keeps your legs in their happy place. Then bling it up with a pair of bronzy booties, golden sparkly earrings and a luxe mask.


If busy times in the kitchen mean a lot of lifting and plating, go for an outfit that moves with you. Knee length capris give you the feel of a skirt with the reliability of trousers. Complement the dark olive of the pants with a winter tapestry top and some gorgeous caramel knee high boots. A looped belt centers the look and then its just a matter of adding a big chunky gold necklace and a matching olive mask.


Finally, when you just need to jump to it, this sophisticated winter jumpsuit will do the trick. Pair it with a fun blousy poet shirt underneath and matching winter white booties. These resin earrings pull all the colors in the collection together and of course, we’d be remiss if we didn’t include a marvelously modish mask to complete the scene.

That ends our collection. We hope you like the looks and from all of us we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hosting!
