Holiday dressing—the one time of year when we actually consider dropping $300 on a sequined midi skirt (that we will wear precisely once…or not at all). But since that money tree in our backyard is sadly just a little sapling, here’s a list of five holiday trends that are actually worth the space in your closet.

A Teddy Bear Coat

Not only great for keeping you warm (as you bounce between parties) but also just plain fun to wear. Sherpa-lined, bouclé and faux fur are all A+ iterations of the trend. And when it comes to color, there’s only one rule: Go for it.

Glam Boots

Whether they’re sultry knee-high stilettos or jewel-toned velvet boots, one thing is for sure: You should be taking a no-holds-barred approach to footwear this season. Get your hands on a pair of standout shoes and wear them to all of your festivities. Now’s the time to let your footwear (literally) shine.

Psst: Sam Edelman is offering 20 percent off site-wide with the code “PWXSAM20” on November 20. Ready, set, go. (Some exclusions apply.)

An Asymmetrical Blouse

Consider this your off-the-shoulder top’s cooler cousin. Sure, an exposed collarbone is still a key part of the look, but this one keeps you a little more covered. (Hey, it is 40 degrees out.)

Sculptural Earrings

Put your beads and baubles to the side. This season’s jewels are big and metallic. Pieces that feel a bit industrial are perfect, like oversize gold earrings in funky shapes reminiscent of hardware. If it looks like something you might find in a tool shop or modern museum, you’re on the right track.

Velvet Trousers

The subtle sheen and super-soft feel make them a fun complement to just about any blouse. Wear them in a looser fit (á la ’90s track pants) for a more casual affair, or cropped in a slim high-rise cut for a more upscale event (in lieu of a dress).
