Happy Holidays!  This time of year there are lots of parties and events and it can be overwhelming to figure out what to wear to all of the festivities.  There are so many wonderful places to shop, but sometimes we don't have time to drive all over town looking at different stores.  Often it is easier to go to one place to shop, and Concord Mills is a great option with a variety of retailers.  I enlisted the help of some of my blogger friends to share some affordable holiday outfits from Concord Mills.  We all found great outfits from casual to dressy that would be perfect for your upcoming festivities.

First up is my outfit.  I found this pretty black dress at H&M and thought it would perfect for a Christmas or New Years Eve function.  The gold foil dots give it a festive look and the flowy shape is perfect in case I overindulge at Christmas dinner!  My leggings and black booties both came from Forever 21 and I finished off the look with some sparkly hoop earrings from H&M.  My full outfit is priced under $100 with each item under $40.

Rachel from Queen City Chic (Instagram \\ Blogfound a casual outfit that would be perfect for family photos or a holiday brunch.  Rachel bought this cute festive sweater and matching hat at Lucky Outlet.  This sweater is great for a holiday function but could also be worn throughout winter.  She paired it with some jeans and a layered necklace, both from H&M.  All of these items are priced under $100 total!

Miranda from Miranda in Charlotte (Instagram \\ Blog) is wearing an outfit that would work well for so many different occasions.  This dress is a great option for a work party or church on Christmas Eve and could also be worn all fall and winter long. Miranda's dress, tights, necklace and booties all came from Loft Outlet.  She finished off her look with some pretty gold earrings from Kate Spade Outlet. Miranda's full outfit is from Concord Mills and is priced around $100 all in!

Lindsay from Seven Layer Charlotte (Instagram \\ Blog) selected a beautiful dressy look. Sweaters paired with long skirts are very popular right now and Lindsay's look is so elegant.  Her sweater and pleated skirt are both from H&M and are versatile enough to wear with other items too.  The sweater would look great with denim and you could pair a t-shirt and sneakers with the skirt for a fun casual look. Lindsay finished off her outfit with some sparkly earrings from Banana Republic Factory Store.  This look would be perfect a Christmas party or nice Christmas dinner.  Each of these pieces are priced at or below $40.
