The holiday season is in full swing - first came the coordinated chaos of Thanksgiving then the insanity of Black Friday - now it's time to get serious about your upcoming parties and figure out what you're going to wear!

A festive yet functional cocktail dress is a great solution for the endless events that come with the holidays.  Go bold with pattern and texture while keeping the silhouette easy and versatile,  you want to be able to wear this dress multiple times this month without tiring of it. Can the dress take you from day to evening? Awesome. Will it hide a spill of Champagne?  Even better. 

For less formal events, trade in your fur topper, bare leg and delicate pump for a leather jacket, opaque tights and a leather bootie.  

From L to R: Nicole Miller "Mercedes" dress, Akris Punto knit herringbone dress, Red Valentino floral chiffon dress, M Missoni jewel print dress, Red Valentino cherry print jacquard dress.

Wishing you a yours a fantastic, festive and fun holiday season!
