'Tis the season of holiday party after holiday party. Here's a guide to dressing for any festive occasion you may have coming up!
Prepare to get to know your co-workers a little too well in style. Trust us, pulling together a fun office party look is so much easier than finding something to talk about with Janet from HR. A track-suit stripe on trousers adds a cool edge to a generic black pant. Pair the "athleisure"-inspired bottom with a festive statement top to elevate the look. A silver sequin top is a dressy piece, but a casual long-sleeve crew neck cut is a way to tone it down and make it look effortless. A neon quilted shoulder bag is a surprising and fun take on the classic shape and will add the right amount of color. Wear pave-crystal studs to give just a touch more sparkle, but not take away from the conversation-making outfit. Tie everything together with a large textured silver cuff, your favorite black stilettos, and of course, a glass of eggnog.

UGLY SWEATER PARTY
Wearing ugly holiday sweaters ironically has become a popular tradition amongst friends. But just because the sweater is ugly, doesn't mean the rest of the outfit has to be! Tuck your ugly sweater into an on-trend lace-up mini skirt. It is winter after all, so make sure to wear over the knee boots, or over the knee socks and booties to keep warm and look put together. A gold choker is a statement accessory that is the perfect modernizing piece for a vintage-style sweater. An engraved gold ring and square pave-crystal studs will complete the not-so-ugly ugly sweater look.

Whether you're hostess for the night or a guest for the evening, a long-sleeved red midi sweater dress is perfect for an occasion of great conversation and festive fare. Not only is the dress merry and bright, but also comfortable and chic. Cinch the waist of the dress underneath a minimalist black duster coat, to add dimension and accentuate your shape. Pair the otherwise minimalist look with edgy lace-up black booties for a bold contrast. A thin serpent collar is a cool and unexpected addition and a pyramid shaped ring and earrings are just as fierce!

NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY
Ring in the New Year right with your best New Year's outfit yet. Say goodbye to too tight and garish mini dresses. Standout from the crowd by opting for a bold statement embellished pant. An oversized boyfriend tuxedo blazer is a perfect piece to dress down the pants while still looking formal. Forgoing a top underneath, and wearing the blazer as a top is sexy-cool. Because all the party is on the bottom, balance out the outfit by wearing an oversized crystal drop earring for this festive occasion. Complete your look with a delicate but fun bracelet and an evening clutch.

Weddings in winter are whimsical and magical. The only issue is figuring out what to wear when it's blistering outside. A modern jewel-toned wrap dress in velvet is the perfect dress to have you looking formal, elegant, sexy and feeling warm! Balance out the look by leaning towards vintage accessories. A pearl-accented ring with antiqued gold is a beautiful statement. Delicate, chandelier earrings compliment the outfit. Forgo a necklace and don a fur stole instead. Not only will it be a luxurious statement, it will also keep you warm. Add a touch of sparkle with a timeless crystal brooch attached to the stole or your dress.
