‘Tis The Season For Over-The-Top

There’s something about the holidays that makes us bring out the dazzle a bit more than we usually would. We load the Christmas tree with tinsel and trinkets, hang holly and twinkling lights, and search far and wide for the perfect dress for the season’s parties.

So don’t stop short on the extras when curating your holiday wardrobe — think sequins, feathers, baubles and more!

For example, you can break out the glitterati with J.Crew’s Jeweled Feather Wristlet ($195 at jcrew.com), a delicious piece of arm candy that will add the necessary sparkle to any party look. Tiny enough to wear as a bracelet, yet sizable enough to hold the necessities, this little occasion bag is the type of decadence you can’t miss.

If you want even more feathers, try on the Tory Burch “Ceres” Dress ($450 at toryburch.com), an adorable LBD with a boldly embellished bird feather neckline. With the ornamentation built in, opt for statement earrings or an oversized cocktail ring.

For truly over-the-top, check out these laser-cut calf hair Alaia Laser-cut Calf Hair Platform Pumps ($2,375 at net-a-porter.com). They’re seriously exquisite and take any dress to the next level. Pair with black, white or grey and the lace-like effect will add sophistication and glam to your look.
