Where to Find All of Your Must-Have Holiday Looks
Because all that glitters doesn't have to cost serious gold
Sequins. Sparkles. Glitter. Velvet. The holidays immediately turn us all into magpies. But if we’re being honest, those special-occasion items might not be worth the investment. (How many times are you really going to wear that $400 sequined minidress?)
Thankfully, we’ve partnered with ModCloth to bring you all those looks you’re craving, but at prices that won’t make you cringe. Consider your wardrobe’s anxiety handled.
Fashion was like a 2-year-old this past summer, engaged in an endless game of peekaboo with little slits in blouses, dresses and even swimsuits. Well, it turns out the look will continue to be big well into winter. Case in point: the back of this Bordeaux-hued shift. The deep V cutout and horizontal panels add intrigue to an otherwise simple ensemble, but it’s still appropriate for Thanksgiving dinner or your company’s holiday party.

High-Waisted Velvet Culottes
OK, we know, high-waisted, velvet and culottes might be three of the hardest words to swallow in fashion. But trust, this is a winning combo that anyone who likes cozy pants can pull off. The key is to pair the trendy culottes with something basic, like a turtleneck or blazer. Strappy heels keep the look elevated (and your legs elongated).
Statement necklaces are your friends. Remember that simple shift above? Add a crystal bib and it’s immediately suitable for your annual night at the ballet. Pro tip: Get one with a minimal color palette so it can be worn with anything in your wardrobe.

Holiday wedding coming up? The key to pulling off a floaty ankle-length gown in 40-degree weather is all in the color palette. Mauves mixed with midnight blue give this dress an upscale feel, while the roomy pockets keep it down-to-earth.

Want to shine at your holiday party--without covering yourself in sparkles? We get it. Your best bet: a moody floral. A far cry from springy pastel flowers, these darker blooms are ideal for winter weather. (In other words, you won’t feel out of place with a big rose on your dress in the middle of December.)
