How to Style a Plaid Midi Skirt for a Party

Plaid Skirt 6

My #1 holiday must-have item? A plaid skirt.

I seriously wear my plaid midi skirt all of the time – it’s so easy to style for work, dinners, or even parties. Honestly. I wear it all the damn time, y’all.

I actually wore this exact look last week to the Oak Lawn Park and Arlington Hall Conservancy Holiday Party. And it was perfection. Sheer perfection. It is the ideal Wednesday night holiday party outfit. Plus, the night was such a fun one – full of Christmas music and fireworks.

Two of my favorite things in the whole wide world!

If you’ve been following for a while, you probably recognize this plaid midi skirt. I’ve owned it for a few years and worn it here, here, and here!

It’s one of my closet staples… especially this time of year!

If you’re looking to style a plaid midi skirt for an upcoming party, I recommend pairing it with a solid top and stiletto heels. I did some pattern mixing above, but you can easily wear it with nude or solid-colored heels (as I did here).

Above all, have fun with your look!
