It’s not all about the food during the holiday season’s festivities—it’s also about the fashion. Whether you’re the hostess with the mostest or the gracious guest, you want to look your absolute best. Here’s how to shine during the holidays:
The Touch of Lace
The holidays are a great excuse to get dolled up—just don’t overdo it. Pair these girly-girl lace tights with a simple pencil skirt (leather, perhaps?) and a tailored blouse, and you’ll definitely have a party outfit worth Instagramming.

Arabesque Lace Tights
Tis the holiday work party season. For most, the best attire choice is the perfect, never-out-of-style little black dress. The beauty of an LBD like this one—with its high neckline and feminine shape—is that it can be dressed up or down, making it appropriate for any work event. It can also make multiple appearances (change the shoes and jewels and no one will notice it’s the same dress!).
J. Crew Double-Faced Wool Crepe Dress
A sophisticated red dress is hard to find; it’s got to be stylish enough to stand out, but elegant enough to remain classy. This suede shift is the perfect blend of sexy and chic—the suede makes is fashion-forward, the shape makes is classic, and the muted tone means it will make just the right statement.

The Party Clutch
The right accessory makes an outfit—this accessory makes everyone say, “wow.” When you carry this Anndra Neen gold clutch—inspired by the designers’ sculptor father—you’re guaranteed to have a good time. In fact, you’ll be a walking piece of art.

The Fancy Flat
Whether you’re cooking and serving or multi-party hopping, your feet, at some point, will start to suffer. Don’t torment them with six-inch stilettos—instead, keep them pretty and pampered in the season’s hottest, most practical pair of shoes.
