Despite the teeth clattering and goose bump turning
weather, it is finally time to tuck those pastel colors away until spring and
pull out cobalt blues, canary yellows and burgundy red wine colors. Even
though the weather might leave you rigid and icy, there’s nothing like adding a
little splash of color to your outfit to brighten up your day. To endure the
cold this winter, but to nevertheless downgrade your outfit because of it, layers
are essentially your best way to go. A simple knit dress, sheer tights and a
bright sapphire blue scarf or belt will definitely keep you looking chic and help to discard those wintery blue feelings. Just because it is frosty
outside does not mean your wardrobe has to suffer. The 6 key items that are in
for this holiday season are:


Silver sequins
— either on
plain-Jane cocktail dresses or sparsely decorated on the collar of a plain
sweater; show stopping sparkles will ensure all eyes on you and make you feel
like a million bucks at the same time. Nanette Lepore Twilight Sequin Mini Dress $465 saksfifthavenue


Navy for night
— Black is
professional and savvy but a silvery, sapphire blue contributes to a subtle
sophisticated look that is both elegant but exudes a more icy/wintery look as
well. Rachel Pally Long Twist Shoulder Dress $242 shopbop


Celestial gems
— Whether pinned in
your swept up mess of curls or delicately on your shoulder, gems are
definitely the way to go for this winter to add a little glam and spice
to any outfit. Although, beware of too many gems in one place because it may
look gaudy. Make it simple and sweet by adding just a few. Mint by Jodi Arnold 3/4 Sleeve Jeweled Mini Dress $429 shopbop


Bejeweled bodices
— Having built in
evening accessories to your outfit may be the way to end your stress and fuss
over deciding what goes good with what. A delicate and sporadic decorated dress
with jewels, focused around the bodice will not only draw the concentration away
from other areas not desirable but will also increase a focus on defining your
waist at the same time. Vanessa Bruno Balloon Sleeve Dress $653 shopbop


Puff sleeves
— Not only do puff
sleeves add a little volume to any outfit, they add a desirable feminine
touch that is a ‘must-have’ for this season. Spaghetti straps were once “cute” but
the modern and flattering puff sleeve is a more updated version this winter. Laundry by Design Princess Sleeve Mini Dress $295 saksfifthavenue


Feminine extras
— From day to
night, it is essential to add that small little punch of satin, lace or a small
bow in order to attain elegance for day or night. The smaller the feminine
touch, the more noticeable it will be. Simplicity is the key word when we
go in this area. Over-accessorizing with bows and lace screams “grandma” and no
one wants that label. ABS Bow Mini Dress $231 saksfifthavenue
