The Slinky Dress
Short, sparkly, strappy, and swishy. Any combination of those words makes for a great dress. But, go for something a little less body-hugging for a more modern take.
The Strapless Jumpsuit
The one-piece wonder of the year isn't a cocktail dress. It's a cocktail jumpsuit. Dress up yours with heels, an embellished belt, and a creative topper, or layer it over a turtleneck and under a boxy vest for a more casual look.
The Off-The-Shoulder Blouse
One of the season’s sexiest trends — the shoulder-revealing neckline — parlays perfectly into event-wear. Choose it in a crisp material, like poplin or satin, so it feels winter-ready.
Rosie Assoulin Belted Cut-Out Cotton-Poplin Top, $1495, available at Moda Operandi.
The Layering Turtleneck
Your holiday turtleneck doesn’t have to be super-thin, but it should be slim-fit enough to go underneath dresses without adding too much bulk. We like just a touch of texture.
