Hey guys! Today I’m so excited to share this last minute holiday outfit with you. It’s different from what I’m used to wearing, but I could not pass this skirt up when I saw it! I’ve been seeing pleated skirts on storefronts and all over Instagram lately, and I figured I’d get one for myself to style.
I was mindlessly browsing amazon one day and stumbled across this beautiful velvet emerald skirt. It had such great reviews and looked so cute in the customer images. Typically I am not much of a fan of velvet, but I thought I’d give it a try anyway. I’ve been focusing on mixing textures and adding depth to all my outfits recently so I was excited to style this pleated skirt. When I received this skirt in the mail I was positively BLOWN AWAY. Amazon is great and all, but the quality of their clothing is usually not anything special. The description said it was one size fits all, which was a red flag to me, given I’m 5’0. BUT, this skirt is everything I had hoped. It fit perfectly for my height and frame. The material is thick, stretchy, and the softest velvet, making it very comfortable to wear. It’s also the most beautiful bold shade of green, which is perfect for any holiday occasion. Whether it be an office party or a family gathering, this skirt will easily be the topic of conversation! The skirt comes in three colors: gray, green, and navy green. The best part? It’s only $16.99!! I’m so in love with it I may just have to buy it in gray too!
I styled this skirt with a camel balloon sleeve sweater, my black and gold Gucci belt, and some black pumps. I also added my LOFT crystal drop earrings for a touch of glam. This skirt would also pair well with any other neutral colored top! Check out my Christmas outfit below and let me know what ya think.
