It’s party season, which means there’s going to be a host of fun activities to partake in each weekend until the clock strikes midnight on December 31. As such, your wardrobe better be stocked with a few fabulous outfits, but that doesn’t mean you need to go out and spend a fortune, either. If you play your cards right, you’ll have plenty to work with in what you’ve already got hanging up in that closet. This weekend, if you just so happen to find yourself with last-minute plans and no stylish outfit on deck, consider these tips to avoid a potential fashion crisis. You’ll thank us later!

One of our absolute favorites, leather, is always a fierce way to showcase your style come holiday season. We’re all kinds of in love with everything from leather skirts to leather trousers, and these can be paired with items as simple as a white blouse. Accentuate this hot combination with a luxe gold necklace and a ruby red pout to create an effortless look sure to garner compliments as soon as you walk through th door. Isn’t that the whole point of the holidays, anyway?

Fringe is in this season, as is suede, so any variation of either of these will work for compiling a hot outfit. Try a black fringed skirt with a vintage rock n’ rol tee and booties for a girl-about-town look, or pair a bodycon suede skirt with a neutral crop top for a night out dancing with your gal pals. Luxe accessories and a swipe of the perfect berry or burgundy lip is all you need to finish the look off strong.
