The holiday season is officially upon us. Make a lasting impression on your holiday soirée circuit with these head turning trends:

1. Asymmetrical


Make a contemporary chic statement with an asymmetrical hem or neckline. Draw attention to your haute hemline with a pair of killer pumps.


Beauty tip: Keep the focus on the eye catching cut by sweeping hair into an elegant up-do. Marie Claire included a short number in its list of holiday looks to try, and its champagne color is definitely party-approved.


2. Embellished


Aiming to turn heads? Lyst tells us dresses with “luxe embellishment” are sure to “up the after-dark wow factor.” And PopSugar adds, “When it comes to the holiday season, there’s no such thing as too much sparkle.“ For a little direction, look for a fit-and-flare cut with jewels on the neckline. That way you can nix the jewelry and focus on perfecting your beauty look.


3. Scarlet Red


Channel your inner femme fatale in a sultry, romantic—and festive—rouge look. For ruby red out inspo check out Harper’s Bazaar’s ten “look-at-me-now red dresses.” Just be prepared: all eyes will be on you, so get ready to work the room!


4. Sweater Style


Rather be cozying up in front of the fireplace? Stay casual-chic in a sexy sweater dress. A curve-hugging midi style is flattering, elegant and comfortable—what’s not to love? Dress the look up with glam, statement jewelry and top it with a floor-duster coat for the ultimate effect.
