A Plunging V-Neck

It may be sub-zero outside, but chances are you'll be baring some serious skin at holiday parties. Here are our foolproof ways to shimmer and shine in all of the season's prettiest, skimpiest cocktail dresses.

If You're Wearing...A Plunging V-Neck
Feeling daring like Jennifer Aniston? Add subtle shimmer to your chest and decollete with a dollop of Victoria's Secret Shimmer Lotion ($20, victoriassecret.com).

A Backless Dress

Because our back tends to be out of sight, it's no surprise that things can get a little dicey. If you opt for a plunging number like Lea Michele, a few spritzes of Murad Clarifying Body Spray ($37, murad.com) will quickly dry out pesky blemishes with its potent blend of retinol and salicylic acid. Even better? The spray works upside down, so you can easily target hard-to-reach zones.

Skip black tights and bare it all like Nikki Reed. (A flash of leg is a welcome surprise in winter months.) Nip + Fab Cellulite Fix ($18, target.com) tightens skin with proven cellulite fighter caffeine; a line of Charlotte Ronson Face amp Body Glow ($18, sephora.com) along the center of your shins adds slimming dimension.

A Shoulder-Baring Dress

A high-collared dress like Kate Bosworth's accentuates delicate bone structure-and highlights awkward tan lines. Even things out with a wash of streak-proof gradual sunless tanner like Jergen's Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($9, drugstore.com). The updated formulation lasts twice as long as the original.

A Strapless Dress

You don't have to be half-naked to look fully sexy. Emma Stone's collarbones are elegant and alluring-and yours can be too, especially with a light dusting of Urban Decay Sparkling Body Powder ($20, urbandecay.com), which leaves behind a fine shimmer, not chunks of glitter.
