'Tis the season to be done with finals and knee-deep into winter break. For most of us, it involves heading home for the holidays. This time of year presents a variety of tricky dressing situations. We are here to help, so don't fret!

Since this time of year brings a plethora of extra expenses, we've also got your back in the wallet department. All four outfits below are budget-friendly and total under $100.

High School Friend Meetup: $87.79


Product Information: Sweater - H&M, Skirt - Black Five, Shoes - Forever 21, Necklace - Forever 21, Lipstick - ELF

Anytime you head home, you can plan on all of your old high school buddies hitting you up. If you decide to go out with the old crew, we suggest a casual-chic look. A quilted faux leather skirt is key to a cool outfit. Tone it down with a chunky sweater and booties. Rock a statement necklace for a bit of glitz, then top it all off with a swipe of red lipstick.

Family Holiday Party: $82.99


Product Information: Dress - Black Five, Shoes - Charlotte Russe, Earrings - Bauble Bar, Hair Pins - Ban.do

If your folks are throwing a holiday shindig with the family and all of their friends, use the excuse to dress up. After all, when is there a better time to wear a red fit-and-flare dress? Strappy black pumps are the perfect holiday shoe. You also don't need an excuse to wear razzle-dazzle statement earrings and glitter bobby pins.

Christmas Morning: $71.21


Product Information: Sweater - Boohoo, Leggings - American Eagle, Slippers - H&M, Scarf - Amazon, Hair Ties - Forever 21

There's no better time than Christmas morning to wear your silly holiday sweater. Don't fret about rocking leggings and slippers to stay warm. Tie your hair back with twist bands and throw on a colorful scarf for extra warmth and cuteness.

Little Sister's Holiday Dance Recital: $83.65


Product Information: Top - H&M, Jeans - Forever 21, Shoes - Boohoo, Earrings - JCPenney, Necklace - Charlotte Russe

Holiday time brings unexpected family events, like a younger sibling's dance recital or concert. A draped blouse and black jeans can be dressed up with a plain court shoe. Simple yet chic jewelry will add a little bit of glitz without being overpowering.
