The Perfect Thanksgiving Day Shoe

Each holiday season, women everywhere face the dilemma of deciding what to wear to their annual Thanksgiving Day feast. On one hand, you want to stay comfortable enough to enjoy the food and activities you have planned for the day. On the other, you’re hoping to dress to impress for friends and family you only see so often. Aside from tightly fitted clothing, the biggest fashion mistake a woman can make is wearing uncomfortable footwear that lacks trend-right style.   

Donald Pliner offers the ultimate shoe every woman should rock this Thanksgiving. The GEM ladies’ pump is a best-selling style that complements your Turkey Day attire with ease. Not only does this pump feature chic, feminine touches, it can be worn by virtually any woman regardless of outfit choice. Below you will find five different variations of this favorite Italian-made pump accompanied by outfit pairings and style suggestions.  

The Not-So-Classic Little Black Pump

Donald Pliner signature crepe elastic is the foundation of this GEM ladies’ pump. Sleek design makes this classic pump with a twist an easy go-to for Thanksgiving Day. Start with sheer tights, throw in a modern colorblock dress and finish the look with the GEM in crepe elastic for a flirty, youthful appearance.

Think Pink

Featuring supple soft suede in a blush hue, this GEM ladies’ pump fits snug on your foot and brings an airy element to your Thanksgiving Day attire. Make it pop with flared denim in a dark wash and a black, cable knit sweater on top. If you live in cool weather climates, throw on a light grey scarf to tie it all together.

Elegantly Executed

This GEM in gorgeous carbon matte metallic snake print leather features a contrasting black heel to really make the texture pop. An ideal Thanksgiving Day outfit includes loose-fitted blouses and dresses, allowing you to enjoy the meal without worry.

Retro Metallic

Go retro this Thanksgiving with the GEM ladies’ pump in light bronze tumbled metallic brush off leather. This Donald Pliner exclusive is made for showing off in all the right ways. If you’re looking to get dressed up for the occasion, try this style with a pair of sophisticated black slacks, a deep maroon top and an embellished blazer.

Back to the Basics
