style + fave holiday skirts

I'm so into the pre-holiday spirit that my house is 60% decorated for Christmas and my family's go-to movies currently are Four Christmases and Home Alone. 

It's sad really, but everyone is happier at Christmastime and everything is prettier at Christmastime.

Still going to talk about the holiday party my family is throwing in December. Last week I posted my what to wear guide for holiday parties, and after further deliberation, I've decided that the amazing gold pants from Topshop aren't really so amazing, so I've nixed them from my outfit options list for the event.

Onto the next.

Right now I'm thinking that a black satin bodysuit, like this high-necked version from Zara, a fringey, sparkely skirt, and black opaque tights with black booties. The bodysuit ensures that the top will stay tucked in, and I'm actually not finding the specific dress I want, so I'm resorting to skirts. 

I am first to admit I've been a major protestor of skirts...on my body shape, they're not exactly flattering. My large ribs/waist plus the bane of my weight loss existence, my love handles, do not compliment skirts very well. But, I really really want to wear a fringe mini skirt so I'm working my hardest with diet and exercise to overcome my hesitation towards skirts. 

(Literally LOL that the election was yesterday and I'm talking about skirts for holiday parties. But y'all aren't here to hear about real world issues, anyway)

So, as shown above, my favorite option is the Anine Bing gold skirt. It's pretty close to perfect. I love the feather skirts from Club Monaco, but I'm not a fan of the thick elastic waistband...not exactly flattering.

Second up is the Jack Wills skirt. Jack Wills is hard to figure out, because their sizing/fit is usually pretty off, but occasionally they come out with real winners. I had a backless daytime LBD from Jack Wills from a few years ago that I literally destroyed I wore it so much. They closed the Jack Wills location closest to me, so I'll have to venture out to another town if I were to try this skirt on, but it's always worth a shot.

Which skirt is your favorite? Happy Wednesday!
