The first big tip we've learned from this year's party outfits: There's no such thing as too much sparkle. "This year's all about sparkle, shine, sequins, glitter," Shopbop's Brand President, Shira Suveyke, tells InStyle. "Sequins — not just in your typical party dress — but also on bombers, joggers, blazers, handbags, and shoes." So if you're not into wearing dresses or just want something that's going to keep you warm, follow Kelly Rowland's lead and go for glittery joggers ($425; shopbop.com).
Another major trend: leopard, snake, and zebra prints. "We're really seeing the animal print carry into holiday," Suveyke adds. Ashley Graham stepped out for J.Lo's party in a python wrap dress ($55; prettylittlething.com), a strong trend since summer that will carry on through the new year.
The third major holiday trend is bold pops of color. "Next spring we'll see a lot of brights and neons, but people are picking up on that early and shopping it now," Suveyke explains. Go for fiery reds or follow Adriana Lima's lead and grab an electric pink blazer, shorts, and matching shoes ($170; bloomingdales.com) this holiday season.
