You’ll be sure to stand out in a sea of black dresses in a bold yellow number. Subtle touches of silver and red keep the look appropriately festive.

Navy + Burgundy + Cornflower Blue

Navy and burgundy are classic colors on their own. Pair them together with an unexpected shade like cornflower blue, however, and you've got an eye-catching ensemble that's both interesting and surprisingly versatile.

A plush fur stole like this one is made for holiday parties. Wear one (or a faux one) with a sleek, muted pantsuit to keep things modern. Then, add a pop of color-blocked flair like stylist Shiona Turini here.

While the colors themselves err on the safer side, the cuts and fabrics are anything but. Look for architectural blouses and statement clutches to bring this combo to life.

Don’t want to give up your blacks and golds? Look for ornate details like fluttery sleeves and intricate patterns to elevate the combo. Then (you guessed it) a burgundy accent (like a velvet choker) is just the icing on the cake.
