Hello friend! And a very big welcome to the inaugural 12 Days of Skirtmas post! I am excited to start this holiday tradition on my blog. Starting today until Christmas Eve, I will be posting and styling a new skirt every day! You can follow along here, or on Instagram. Or better yet, play along and wear a skirt for the next 12 days! I further challenge you to wear your skirts a different way than you’ve worn them before! Today’s post features the beautiful Halogen velvet pleated midi skirt.

When I first saw this skirt, I was drawn to the velvet. I’ve worn a similar one before in gray (see winter florals post), but the black was calling me! Black velvet looks so rich and opulent. I knew it would make a perfect holiday skirt. Therefore I got one and quickly thought up some outfits.
Halogen Velvet Pleated Midi Skirt Goes Preppy
For my first pairing of the skirt, I wore it with my J Crew Stewart plaid button-down. I had worn a similar look last year for Christmas (with a black tulle skirt). Therefore this outfit was a natural one to re-create. I like how the velvet skirt elevates the plaid shirt to a more elegant style.
I chose to wear a yellow shoe to echo the color in the shirt and also to allow the skirt to pop.
Halogen Velvet Pleated Midi Skirt Goes Casual
For my second styling of the Halogen velvet pleated midi skirt, I decided to try a more casual look. I paired it with this bow tee to bring in a fun print. It also serves to show how fun and versatile this skirt can be.
I chose to wear silver pumps to mark for a holiday occasion. But you can also wear it with kicks and pull off a more casual and fun vibe.
I hope you enjoyed the first Skirtmas post! Stay tuned for many more!
