    We're smack in the middle of the holiday-party season, and at this point, we could get ready for a glitzy night out in our sleep. Take one black, satin, cocktail dress, add sky-high heels, an eye-catching bauble or two, and hail a cab. But what do you do when that tried-and-true formula starts to feel a little...well, formulaic? Fear not, my LBD-fatigued friends — there's a whole world of glammed-up goods that don't involve black satin or spangles.

    Case in point? These 11 easy pieces from Shopbop. Pair Alexander Wang's neon lemongrass sweater with Vince's cobalt silk sweatpants for a sporty, at-ease take on holiday glam. Throw on a Chanel-esque jacket (in sweater form, so it's as comfy as it is cute) over trim tuxedo pants, and you'll look like a YSL muse in two minutes flat.

    Click on to see more unexpected party picks. It's enough to make us wonder why we ever wriggled into that oh-so-binding silver-spangled dress...that made us blend in with the tinsel.
