Along with the holiday season comes a schedule packed with parties, festive get togethers and nights out with friends and family! While I love a classic sweater + jeans / leggings look, today I wanted to switch things up a little bit and style something new for you guys… a pleated leather midi skirt!
I recently found this pleated faux leather midi skirt from mango and fell in love! It's actually way more versatile than you'd think, and it's the perfect addition to your holiday wardrobe rotation! This one is only 89.99 so it's selling out fast, but I also found a similar option from nordstrom that i've linked below!shop now
look 1: classic + cozy
I am all about a chunky sweater + skirt combo for the holiday season, and this one doesn’t dissappoint! It’s simple, classic and still warm and cozy! I’d wear this look to a festive night out with your girl friends, to a holiday event at your kids school, or even to church!
This sweater is the perfect neutral and I love how it looked front tucked into this skirt! It's also so cute with jeans or leggings, and can be worn on repeat all season long.shop now
if you've been following me for the last month... then you've seen me share these booties nonstop. When I say I'm in love it is an understatement! They are definitely a splurge, but they are by far the most flattering booties that I have purchased this year. I love how slim they are around your ankle - and they look amazing with denim, dresses or skirts!shop now
look 2: casual chic
This look might be my favorite because it’s edgy, casual and chic! Thought you couldn’t pair a leather skirt with sneakers? Think again! I love the funky vibes of this look and how effortless it looks and feels. I’d wear this look out Christmas shopping or to a girls night out!
I've had the tee I'm wearing for a few years now so unfortunately it's sold out, but any cropped graphic tee would work with this look! I found this one on Revolve and I love the design and pop of red for the holidays! So cute with this skirt, but it would also be great with high waisted denim or leggings and a chunky sweater!shop now
My favorite high top sneakers I've ever worn! I wear them with dresses, denim, leggings, joggers.... basically everything in my wardrobe. Comfortable, fun and on trend!shop now
look 3: preppy + timeless
This look is definitely a little bit out of the box for me, but I wanted to style something that would be fitting for a work holiday party! If you don’t have a plaid shirt that matches black leather, you could also wear a button down silk blouse or a collared sweater!
I love how feminine and soft the silhouette of this banana republic flannel is. The deep red is so pretty for a holiday party, and would also pair perfectly with faux leather pants or black trousers!shop now
I am a broken record with this heels, but I have had them or YEARS and they haven't failed me yet. I also have them in nude and brown! They're super comfortable, and don't hurt your feet even after wearing / standing in them for hours. Definitely a staple item in my wardrobe!shop now
look 4: elegant + elevated
My last look is the fanciest and most formal of the four! This look would be perfect for a night out to see a Christmas show, to wear to a candlelight church service, or for a fancy holiday party! It would also make a great new years eve look! Monochromatic, elegant and elevated.
A classic lace cami is a wardrobe essential, if you ask me! I love pairing a tank like this with skirts or denim for a date night look or formal event! They're so feminine and elegant, and they can be worn so many ways. Love the mix of silky fabric with the structured leather pleats!shop now
This cashmere scarf is another item I've had for wears and LOVE! Totally worth the splurge and would make the best gift. It's luxurious, warm and insanely soft and cozy. Can be worn as a scarf or shawl! I also love it with leggings and an oversized sweater.shop now
Thought this clutch was pretty + unique! Under $100 and the perfect addition to a holiday party look. Not too small, and holds just enough!shop now
