Go For Culottes

Culottes have had a big year for good reason—they look fabulous and flattering for a range of occasions. Make like Amal Clooney and select a pair rendered in a metallic fabric, then coordinate with a matching top, tonal pumps and a luxe, fuzzy topper for a modern Bianca Jagger vibe.

Add An Elegant Cape

For traipsing to and from parties, you'll inevitably need something to keep you warm. Take a page from Kate Hudson's playbook and opt for a sleek cloak, which tones down head-to-toe sparkle while adding a dose of refined elegance.

Switch Up Your Footwear

Rather than rocking your go-to black pumps, edge up your festive frock with peep-toe booties or a similarly unexpected silhouette. The simple swap prevents the look from skewing too saccharine, as evidenced here by Selena Gomez.

Swap For A Skirt Set

A trendy play on the traditional cocktail dress, a two-piece set like Jacquetta Wheeler's offers the option to bare just a hint of midriff for added allure.

Trust In The Neckline

If you're not down for looking like a disco ball, a subtle way to sparkle is via an embellished top. The piece takes the place of a statement necklace (one less outfit component to consider!) while jazzing up basic skinnies and booties like Kate Moss'.

Wrap Yourself In Shimmer

A metallic wrap jacket like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's feels festive enough for an evening soiree without being predictable. Leather leggings offer a rich contrast in texture and make your outfit look that much more expensive.
