How to Wear a Pleated Skirt to Your Next Holiday Party

You know the feeling...your calendar is packed with back to back holiday parties and you're stressing out about all the outfits you need to put together for each one!

It's definitely a stressful time–between buying gifts, traveling to see family and friends, and buying yourself a few nice outfits for all the events you committed to. Not to mention it can be super heavy on your wallet. But, there's a way to look super chic at your holiday parties without spending too much money! All you need is a pleated skirt, a body suit and a few accessories from your closet. 

I've been wanting a pleated skirt for a while now and I was so happy when I stumbled upon this one from Uniqlo. It's perfect. Not only is it such a steal at only $15 (it was $30 but it's now on sale!!), but the quality is amazing and it looks more expensive than it is. Which is a total plus since most holiday parties require you to be kind of fancy. For my holiday look I wanted something sleek and elegant. That's why I paired the skirt with an off the shoulder bodysuit from American Apparel. This bodysuit was a little expensive at $39, but I really liked the fit and feel of it so for me it was worth it. But you can get your bodysuit anywhere! Forever 21 and H&M both have a great selection of bodysuits at a fraction of the cost. If you purchase your bodysuit at one of those stores you can recreate this look for under $50! Just match the outfit with your favorite heels and bag that you already have hanging in your closet and you're good to go. And trust me when I tell you this outfit will definitely get a lot of compliments at your party :)
