Pleat on Pleat: Holiday Party Lookbook

Velvet is the hottest trend of the season. You can satisfy your velvet obsession with dresses, shoes or accessories. Velvet is perfect for the holiday season because it adds a touch of elegance and glamour. This pleated velvet skirt was my very first velvet purchase. I’ve been in love with velvet ever since. I love the soft velvety feel of the fabric.

I also love wearing jewel tone pieces during the holiday to add a touch of color. This magenta hue is so beautiful. It paired beautifully with this white tunic. This look is perfect for holiday parties. A hint of sparkle is a must have so I added a statement necklace to complete the look.

I think every girl needs a good white button up top. If you’re looking for one, look no further. This top is beautiful and super versatile. It looks so chic with a pair of leggings. That’s what I’ll be wearing on Thanksgiving. For a dressed up look, pair it with a maxi skirt like I did here. I’ve also worn it to work with a pencil skirt.  For reference, I’m wearing an XSP and the fit is perfect.

Wishing you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving! We're hosting a family Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year. I'll be sharing photos on my story so be sure to follow along.

Thank you J.Jill for sponsoring this post.
