and warm, a Maxi Skirt is easy to dress up for cocktails.  Choose
one with a high waist, and A line shape one to play up the long
length, and nipped waist, and be sure to wear your top tucked in.
 This look is instantly slimming, making you look taller and
thinner, something we could all use during the holiday season! Wear
with your hair up and statement earrings for a dressier occasion.
 For a little sex appeal, flash a little skin by wearing with a
tank, or open back top.  Alternatively, pick a maxi skirt with a
slit.  Another added bonus of a maxi skirt is that your legs
will stay warm!  9-
Sequined BlouseA
versatile piece, you can wear with a black pencil skirt and heels for
a cocktail party, or with jeans and boots for happy hour.  Great
for layering, (like under a velvet blazer) a sequined blouse is a
easy way to add color and pizzaz to winter’s drab wardrobe.  And
if you are wearing it with a close fitting pencil skirt or tight
jeans, chose a flowy, loose top.  The movement will make the
sequins sparkle, and it’s more forgiving when you’ve had too many
gingerbread cookies.8-
Beaded or Mesh Cross Body BagThe
beads, mesh, and sequins makes this bag festive enough to wear to a
cocktail party, and the cross body style keeps you hands free to hold
egg nog or give hugs to friends you haven’t seen in a while.7-
Velvet blazerNot
only is this a holiday essential, it is a winter essential.  Soft,
warm, and touchable, velvet adds a sensual touch to winter’s
covered up wardrobe, and itchy materials.  Be sure to choose a
color that is dark and deep, like wine red or eggplant purple, for a
classic regal look.    6-
Statement JewelryIt
takes even the most boring outfit to the next level, and in a flash!
 You wake up late and don’t know what to wear to work.  Just
throw something on, and add statement jewelry, and viola, you look
pulled together and fashionable!5-
Embellished CardiganPractical
and cute, a beaded or embroidered cardigan sweater keeps you warm,
and looking stylish.  They are also very versatile!  They
can be worn with jeans and flats on any given Sunday afternoon.  Or
worn over a cocktail dress with heels for cocktails.  Their
loose fitting boxy shape is off set by the above the waist length,
giving them ideal proportions to wear over a dress, or with a longer
tank top, and low rise jeans.  They come in so many different
varieties like with detachable fur collars, or beading and
rhinestones embroidery, and are often made of cozy materials like
cashmere and angora.  What’s not to love!  4-
Suede ShoesThe
Holidays are all about sensuous and luxurious materials, and suede is
just that.  Whether it is unexpected strappy sandals in suede,
or sexy knee high boots, wearing suede shoes adds an extra level of
understated polish, with out being too dressy.  Suede is great
for toning down sparkle, and bringing your over the top outfit back
to earth.  3-
Sequined or Metal Chain BeltThis
instantly dresses up any outfit, and adds some sparkle.  Take
any black outfit your wore to work, add a sequined belt, and you are
ready for cocktails.  It’s that simple!2-
Snake Skin ClutchThis
is the ultimate accessory this holiday season.  And your options
are endless.  You can go conservative, with a black or neutral
colored one, or wild with a bold colored one.  Can’t decide?
 You can even choose a patchwork one, like those from Carlos
Falchi.  Small, big, it doesn’t really matter, as long as it
is snake skin it is luxurious and chic (and trendy).   1-
The UGLIEST Christmas Sweater you can findIt’s
so tacky, it’s trendy.  The newest holiday fashion statement
is the ugliest Christmas sweater you can find.  Just be sure to
pick one that is so ugly people will know not to take it seriously.
