    1. A fringed dress that'll look amazing while you're standing still but phenomenal while you're out on the dance floor at your company holiday party.,

    Promising review: "The dress is beautiful. It fits me perfectly, but beware, I ordered it in size XL (I have big boobs and my waist isn't that tiny), my usual dress size is M, so I'd say this dress is small (I checked the size chart before ordering it, and that's why I knew I had to order the size XL instead of my usual M). This size was perfect for my waist (it wasn't tight at all) and for everything else, and I wanted to share my photo so you could see :). The only problem was in the chest area, it kept opening and I had to check it every now and then to close it." —Clau R.

    2. A trio of bowtiful earrings to make you look like a present with presence.

    Promising review: "I love this vest! I wear a size 16-18, and the XL fits well. There is a nice little zipper pocket on the interior for the three AA batteries. The colors are bright and vibrant and the cool thing about this is you can have a pretty furry white vest OR a crazy fun light up piece of art! The fabric is really soft as well. I'm very happy!" —Jennifer Noran

    Promising review: "This skirt is absolutely gorgeous and surprisingly well made for the price. The sequins have two different sides — a matte black and gorgeous mermaid. As other reviewers said it runs SMALL (I wear a 12-14 in US sizes and the 2XL was very tight)...but it has some give so it’s ok." —Cori A Goates

It flattered my figure and flattened my little tummy, I wore it with some Spanx underneath for that accentuated hour glass shape and I received compliments all night. I added a gold belt just to give it a pop and it worked out wonderfully. This is by far the best dress I own and I’m definitely purchasing another one (if not two) more" —illy

    Promising review: "Got this for my office Christmas party. The color was perfect and it fit great. I received so many compliments. My only concern was trying to adhere the sash to the waistband. Safety pins were an easy fix, but I wish it was attached." —Launie Thompson

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 31 colors and sizes S/M-L/XL).

    19. Chunky boots to pair with your LBDs and black tights. The weather may be gloomy but you shouldn't look it.

    Get them from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in four glitter colors and sizes 5.5-10).

    20. A loose sparkly party dress so you can have plenty of room to shimmy around, as you're wont to do.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress! I hosted my NYE party at my home and it was excellent for the occasion! It arrived on time. The sequins stayed in place, none dropped off. I was worried that it may be too short and fit like a huge T-shirt, but it didn't. The bust area is a tighter fit than the bottom portion of the dress. So if you are extremely big busted, my advice would be to go a size up. I am normally a medium and stuck with that size. I'm a size 34DD bust and it was a bit too tight but manageable, (wore it with no bra), if I had gone up a size the bottom part would have been way too big and require alterations. I'm overall very pleased! I received a lot of compliments that night!" —HeyNiks (YouTube)

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 10 colors).

    21. A velvet cocktail dress you should prepare yourself to field compliments while wearing because it's that dang good.

    Promising review: "There are few words to describe this dress. It is absolutely gorgeous! Fit as expected and looks as pictured. The inside is silk, so it is super comfortable. It comes to a good length, I'm 5'7. It is stretchy so you could probably size down if you like a real fitted look, or size up to keep it loose, but I'd go with your true sizing. I would recommend this dress and many other Esprlia dresses to everyone. They really make some amazing dresses. Thank you! 😊" —Amanda Barnes

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in sizes 14W-22W and in 15 styles).

    22. An enormously chic headband with not one but two rows of faux pearls because I guess it'd be uncouth to wear a tiara to work today. But maybe not?


    Get it from Asos for $19.

    23. An embellished-sleeve dress to let some skin peek through without giving up those precious winter sleeves because the AC inexplicably is still on in this event space in November.,

    Promising review: "Love this dress! I have a bigger chest, and I was so worried about this dress fitting! I was pleasantly surprised that the material had some stretch to it, and it fit beautifully!! I love the details as well! I used the tie as a belt to make the dress a little shorter and give myself a waist!" —Kelly Fox

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and four colors).

    24. An eyelash turtleneck sweater for some covered-up zhuzh when the mercury's dropping and you'd just prefer to go to work wrapped up in a blanket on the day you're getting holiday drinks with your book club.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $79 (also available in brown and sizes XXS-XL).

    25. A velvet beaut other partygoers will be *crushed* they didn't track down to wear too.


    Promising review: "I love everything about this dress. I purchased it for NYE and it fit perfectly. I'm 5'5", bigger busted, normally wear a 12/large, and it was so flattering and forgiving! Not too form-fitting and hugged in all the right places. Definitely had cleavage but okay for a special night out! I would buy again. A girl in the bathroom said I had all the Stevie Nicks' vibes." —Dana D Troglen

    Get it from Amazon for $10.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in four colors).

    26. A pleated midi skirt you might as well buy in every single color because you're going to have the first on constant rotation.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful skirt; it looks just like in the product photos. The fabric actually feels very luxurious, not thin as you might expect from the price. It was a tremendous bargain at the price I paid. I absolutely love it!" —DoctorG

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in nine styles).

    27. Or if you're looking to show a lil' more skin, a semi-sheer metallic option could give your holiday dressing a serious leg up this season.


    I've been obsessed with this skirt since I saw it IRL.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $89 (available in sizes XXS-XXL).

    28. A sparkling sweater dress you can rock whether the weather outside is frightful or not.


    Promising review: "I love this. I could have pulled off a large but the extra large I was able to work with too. Very festive yet not over the top Christmasy. I wanted it shorter so I tucked it into my bra to make it fit better otherwise it was very baggy which also worked too." —Trisha

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL).

    29. A festive cactus tee here to prove that your casual Fridays uniform when you're just trying to get through Q4 doesn't succ.

    31. A beaded skater dress – it can do a lil' extra accessorizing for you this season.,

    Promising review: "Lovely dress that fits perfectly!! I love love love the material it's made of. The little pearls on the front make it extra pretty. Everything about it is perfect. I got a size S and I'm 5'2-5'3 and around 105ish pounds I think." —shirling

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in six colors and sizes XS-XL).

    32. A fringed flapper option you should most definitely wear before it turns into 2020.


    Promising review: "I loved this dress!! I got it for a Taylor Swift concert. It’s a great material and it fits well. The dress is so much fun to dance in!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in four colors).

    34. A beautiful holiday sweater so legendary, passersby will think they imagined it bc, it turns out, the perfect holiday sweater *does* exist.

    Promising review: "This sweater is great. It's actually knitted, and more importantly it's not just some print that is going to fade after one wash. Highly recommend their sweaters!" —Mike Alder

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (available in men's sizes S-XXXXL).

    35. A braided headband that'll make you feel like absolute royalty, even if you slip it on top of your bedhead. I should know because I own it and do JUST that.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $48 (also available in pink).

    36. A fleece-lined poncho might just have you looking like a Mrs. Claus doppelganger.


    Promising review: "I wore this as a replacement for a regular coat to a wedding just before Christmas in Wisconsin. I was worried it would seem too over the top or unusual, but I received compliment after compliment. I was also warm! I am a smoker that ventured out into the single-digit weather every hour or so and I was as warm as I could have been. I must also admit I felt a bit fancy and special wearing this with my long blue dress. Kind of an old school Hollywood glam." —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95+ (available in six colors and in one size).

    37. A sequined beaut with sleeves because the weather outside is frightful but you look so delightful. BTW, you're more or less required to pose in front of a Christmas tree while wearing this.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely loved the shimmer in this dress and how it looked different colors in different light. I wore it to my husband’s company Christmas party and got tons of compliments. It is also lined so I didn’t find the sequins overly itchy. If you’re in between sizes, I’d definitely size up." —Brett Reulet

    Get it from Amazon for $47.99 (available in four colors and sizes 16W-24W).

    38. A funny pair of socks in honor of your naughty boy who always manages to get on Santa's nice list despite getting into the presents way too early.


    Get them from Amazon for $6+ (available in a variety of other festive styles).

    39. A shaggy faux-fur topper that'll make even sweatpants (or no pants!) look incredibly fancy. And then you should wear it the rest of winter... and your life.,

    Promising review: "It fits as expected because I got the large instead of the medium or small top I would normally get. There's plenty of room at the waist, not any wiggle room in the back, bust, arms or shoulders. It has no stretch, that is the nature of the materials used, so I wouldn't expect it. I LOVE this! I like to change things up and decided I had to have it as soon as I saw it. SO glad I got it! It's fun! It's cute! It's so not me that it's me. The gray is a light gray, almost dull silver. It's soft. Does shed a little, but it doesn't seem like it will do so consistently. Has three hook-and-eye closures which are a little fickle, but stay put. The faux-fur plus lining make it warm." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.14+ (available in five colors and sizes 6-12).

    40. A useful sweater that Grandma will be so glad you wore to Thanksgiving. Gotta kick off the season RIGHT.


    Promising review: "Everyone laughed at me when I kept pulling mini alcohol bottles out of my stocking. I was skeptical at first to see if it would actually hold a full bottle of wine and it sure does hold it. It pulls a little on the sweater but it held up. For the Christmas Dog parade I had mini bottles in my sweater. Everyone gave me compliments on how cute the sweater was. It’s really thick so I was a little hot after one mile walk in it." —Ddanielle

    Get it from Amazon for $54.95 (available in sizes XS-XXL).
