3 Stretchy Skirts to See You Through the Holidays

As I sit here eating holiday cookie after holiday cookie, I am acutely aware of the importance of the stretchy skirt.

We would all like to continue dressing nicely and looking attractive during the holiday season, but the constant parties and food don’t make it easy, especially when it comes to dressing in anything remotely fitted. I found that Bebe is a great one-stop-shop for our woes.

Although I would not call Bebe my favorite store, I definitely always seem to find something trendy and cute there. They always seem to carry bold pieces that are easily paired with the rest of my wardrobe. And for the purposes of this amazing skirt post, Bebe has what we need to hide our “holiday cheer,” offering reasonably priced skirts that look fabulous and are forgiving when it comes to feeling (or actually being) bloated.

This high-waisted skirt helps make the body look longer and lean, and the pop of this blue hue makes for a lighter mood. Tuck in a nice shirt and you are all set, looking elegant and ready for an outing. The high amount of spandex makes this a nice option for those blah days because it is comfortable and easy to work with when it comes to transitioning from day to evening wear.

Next up, how could I leave out leopard during such an animalistic season? This skirt is sexy and it goes well as a follow-up to the previous high-waist feature. Both skirts are lovely and eccentric. However, this sassy leopard skirt is not quite as forgiving when it comes to covering up those extra pounds. Wear this on your skinny day to feel ultra-seductive.

Lastly, I love the array of colors Bebe offers in their solid midi skirt. Wow! I am showcasing this because of its versatility. This is one of those pieces that is easy to slip on and is worth owning in a few different colors to match those tops you are dying to wear but have no skirt to wear with. It can be dressed up with a stand-out belt to accentuate the waist even more or played down with some flat boots. With eight colors to choose from, it will be easier than pie finding something that fits your needs.
