Holiday party season is upon us, and if you're not feeling a sequined dress this year, a plaid skirt is a completely viable option.

This plaid pencil skirt worn by Kat is the perfect example of a completely versatile (and appropriately festive) holiday party piece. Best of all? It rings in at under $50.
