When it comes to holiday party outfits, the truth is you can wear pretty much whatever you want (floor-length gown, skinny jeans, pencil skirt, pajama bottoms) as long as you top it with a really fierce, fabulous jacket. The perfect party-ready jacket is made of faux fur or covered in sequins (or both!), has a vaguely “rebellious socialite” vibe, will keep you at least kinda warm while you try to hail a cab, and can be worn all night long. Here are 10 super glam coats and jackets that fit the bill!
Choosing a holiday dress your grandma will approve of is an art form. It can’t be too flashy or high fashion. It must be relatively modest, with feminine details like lace, floral prints, and peplums. Bonus points for retro styles that harken back to your granny’s youth (peter pan collars, full skirts, etc). Does this all seem overly complicated? It is! Which is why I’ve done the work for you and scouted out 10 holiday dresses that will have your famously snarky grandmother singing your praises (at least until she finds out you’re living with your boyfriend out of wedlock, you’re on your own with that one).

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is that it’s one of the only socially acceptable times to dress like a human disco ball. If I had my way I would wear this dress every day of my life (even days that included grocery shopping and dentist appointments), so I get really excited to peruse all the gold sequin blazers and red sequin mini dresses that fill the stores every November. But I understand that not everyone shares my philosophy that there is no such thing as too many sequins. Maybe you want to add a little sparkle into your wardrobe this holiday season without going overboard. Maybe you’re looking for something festive you can wear to work without looking like that crazy Christmas-obsessed lady who has a motion-activated Santa Claus figure on her desk. Whatever your reason, I found 10 lovely pieces of clothing that are embellished with a mere smattering of sequins, just for you. Click through to check ‘em out…
