I got this skirt from The Styled Collection a few months ago and fell in love with it the minute I saw it. It flares out a little at the bottom, in an upside down tulip shape, and I think it's so flattering. I originally ordered in a medium because the fabric is super stretchy, but I ended up returning for a large because I find it runs a bit small. I just paired it with an old silky blouse and it made a perfect simple, yet gorgeous colorful holiday outfit! You could dress it down with flats or add some sleek heels to step it up a notch. It is now sold out (UGH), but I've linked a few similar blouses and skirts so you can recreate it if you'd like!
My favorite piece for the holiday parties is this red dress from Gap. It is very well made, super soft and stretchy, and is so flattering. I really like that the length is a little longer than your average mini dress because I don't have to worry so much when I bend over or reach for something. I paired it with the Steve Madden Stecy heels, but I think it would go well with flats or even booties!
