Holiday Style on a Budget

Despite my disbelief that Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK,  the holidays are just around the corner, and I couldn’t be more excited!! Dressing up for gatherings, meals, and parties with family & friends is one of my favorite parts of this season. Whether it’s a sparkly red dress and green velvet heels for Christmas, or a shimmery bodycon dress on New Year’s Eve, it’s so much fun to put together outfits for these occasions!

However, this season is also one where we don’t exactly have a ton to spend on brand new outfits for each and every occasion, as we are spending extra money on gifts for those we love, as well as possibly splurging on travel expenses, or other necessities like that. Therefore, I have put together a little guide for holiday style on a budget. Whether you’re looking for a flowy floral dress for thanksgiving dinner, or a rockin’ skirt & top to wear while you watch the ball drop, I’ve got ya covered! Check out some inspiration below!

My go-to for Thanksgiving changes each year, depending on my mood, my family’s plans, my style, etc. So I am including multiple ideas! My top three fave outfits for this food-filled holiday are:

1) Sweater dress, tights & booties

2) Velvet dress & thigh high boots (40% off right now!)

3) Structured skirt, turtleneck and jacket (This is less than $20!!!!)

Or of course, you could do a classic pair of skinny jeans, ruffle sweater and crossbody bag!

In addition to these few links, lately I am obsessing over these white booties, this structured tote bag and this faux fur jacket that I asked for for as christmas gift!!


Christmas is always a fun one to dress up for… I don’t know about yall, but my family has a tradition that involves going out to dinner and then back to my grandma’s house for dessert and gift exchange! It’s such a great time and I love dressing up for it. Some of my fave looks for this event are:

1) Flannel shirt & sweater with a sequin skirt and strappy heels

2) Classic red dress, black heels and black clutch

3) Any combo of black and gold. (Christmas doesn’t have to scream green and red, and I am OBSESSED with this jumpsuit/moto jacket combo!)

In addition to these links, if you’re looking for some jewerly for the holidays, whether it’s a dainty tiny piece or a large pair of statement earrings, consider looking into Rocksbox! You can use my code “jordannnleeexoxo” to try a month for FREE!


I think it goes without saying that this is definitely the most fun one to dress up for, so I honestly could write a million options here. Anything with sparkles, glitter, block color patterns, you name it. But I’ll throw in a few more affordable links, because who doesn’t love cheap shiny dresses for NYE??

1) This gold jumpsuit would look great with a black leather jacket or blazer!

2) This metallic peplum top would look stunning with pants or a skirt. Could be styled so many ways!

3) To me, this is the NYE dress, but I’m a sucker for galaxy and space styles so don’t feel like you have to listen to me. I just love this piece because you can do SO much with it. (Think, gold tights, large gold hoops, etc.)

Well, there you have it. I hope these ideas have caught your eye and inspired a look for your holiday style coming up around the corner. Comment below any pieces you especially loved, and/or what it sparked in your head! I can’t wait to see what y’all wear!♡
