Who said the holidays have to be all gingerbread and eggnog? Yawn. It’s one of the busiest social times of the year, so spice it up! These looks—filled with sequins, daring hairstyles and shoes that are anything but ordinary—let you stand out from ho-hum party guests. It’s way more fun to be bold.
Red is a staple for the holidays and it lets you make a statement, especially in clothes with structured shoulders. Pair it with something fun on top and bottom—it’s party time, after all!
