Its body-conscious fit hugs in all the right places and makes it easy to flaunt your gams like Jennifer Aniston. Pair it with leg-lengthening platforms for a party-perfect look-tights are optional. Topshop Minidress, $90; at topshop.com. 02 of 11 Leopard Clutch Sara De Boer/startraksphoto; Courtesy of Bebe We've been talking about leopard for the last few seasons and it won't stop now! But don't show all your spots at once-keep you touches small, like a leopard-print clutch in a bold red or blue. Wear it with a classic party dress like the always-chic Diane Kruger. Express Satin Clutch, $21; at express.com. 03 of 11 Dressy Coat Christopher Peterson/BuzzFoto/FilmMagic; Courtesy of Spiegel Evening-appropriate outerwear is always a toughie, but thanks to this season's dressed-up coat, you can take a break from your pashmina. A metallic belted style, like Gwyneth Paltrow's, looks fabulous over an LBD and is chic enough to be worn alone. Spiegel Metallic Linen Coat, $50; at spiegel.com. 04 of 11 Black Tie Blazer Alex J. Berliner/BEImages; Courtesy of Fred Flare How do you take your basic black blazer from office to evening? Take off your shirt! Wear this classic jacket sans top with a dressy, full skirt like Jessica Biel for a sexy boy-meets-girl party look. Fred Flare Blazer, $64; visit fredflare.com. 05 of 11 Peep-Toe Bootie Dominique Charriau/WireImage; Courtesy of Nina The shoe of the season is undoubtedly the bootie and it only needs a delicate peep-toe to make it cocktail-worthy. Pair an open-toe bootie with holiday dresses or a cute skirt and blouse combo, like Freido Pinto, for a perfect mix of femininity and edge. Nina Peep Toe Bootie, $99; at endless.com. 06 of 11 Metallic Skirt Billy Farrell/PatrickMcMullan; Courtesy of Newport News A versatile metallic skirt is the perfect piece to put on holiday party rotation, especially one that is only $15! You can wear it a million different ways: with a colorful tee like Molly Sims, with a silk camisole and statement necklace, with a tucked-in sweater and waist-defining belt-the options are endless! Newport News Metallic Skirt, $15; at newport-news.com. 07 of 11 Sequins Brian Zak/Sipa; Courtesy of Forever 21 Nothing says party like a little black dress covered in glittering sequins. Take a cue from Halle Berry and opt for a strappy version to ensure you are wearing just the perfect amount of sparkle. Forever 21 Dress, $25; at forever21.com. 08 of 11 Sleeveless Cardigan Dominique Charriau/WireImag; Courtesy of JCrew; Courtesy of Tilly's Mix up your holiday cardigan collection with a stylish sleeveless version. Belt it over a printed party dress like Leighton Meester to beat the chill without covering up too much! Full Tilt Tuxedo Vest, $23; at tillys.com.J. Crew Belt, $30; visit jcrew.com. 09 of 11 Feathers Demis Maryannakis/Sipa; Courtesy of Jennifer Oullettee You don't have to wear a skirt full of feathers like Blake Lively to enjoy this festive trend. Wear a chic feathered headband with a classic black dress for a perfect finishing touch to your favorite holiday style. Jennifer Ouellette Headband, $75; at barneys.com. 10 of 11 Velvet Joy Scheller/iPhoto; Courtesy of Spiegel This luxe fabric adds just the right about richness to even the most simple-shaped dress. Floral touches, like the print on Jessica Alba's dress or neckline adornments, make accessorizing easy (you don't have to!). Spiegel Velvet Dress, $89; at spiegel.com. 11 of 11 Statement Hoops Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage; Courtesy of Max and Chloe Oversize earrings add instant glamour to any party dress.
