Our pick for an on-trend look that is perfect for this season’s festivities? Sequins! Take a cue from style setters like Diane Kruger (in Chanel), Hailee Steinfeld (in Erin by Erin Fetherston), Kate Bosworth (in Stella McCartney), and Jamie Chung (in Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet), by choosing a sparkly strapless or nipped waist version. The key to such luster: Pairing the look with simple accessories keeps eyes on the dress and anchors all of that shine.
