What to wear

Are you headed to a holiday party this week? Instead of wearing your same old little black dress, put on something a little different. Here are some fabulous alternatives to your LBD.

Holiday party

Knock 'em dead in red

Everyone knows that black is slimming, but you can also look fabulous in red. For Christmas, New Year's or any special event, put on a red dress like the JAX Ruffle Front Jersey Sheath Dress. This curve-hugging dress is available at Nordstrom, priced at $138.

Wonderful winter white

White dresses aren't just for summertime. Check out this David Meister Matte Jersey Beaded Dress in white rayon. This dress features a fitted skirt and slouchy blouson style top with a sparkling beaded shoulder strap. This white hot dress is available at Saks for $500.

Puttin' on the glitz

You don't have to spend a bundle to shine this holiday season. This dazzling dress takes a simple silhouette and kicks it up a notch with the addition of sequins. The INC International Concepts Sleeveless Sequin Striped Dress is under $100 at Macy's.

Take a walk on the wild side

Animal prints are still hot this season. For the holidays, show off your animal magnetism with a sassy animal print number. If you want to splurge, check out the Dolce & Gabbana Leopard-Print Tweed Dress, priced at $1,195.

Who wears the pants?

No one says you have to wear a dress to look good. This holiday season put on a pair of flowing pants and a sheer or glitzy top. We like Alexis Evenings Wide-Leg Chiffon Pants. These pants aren't just pretty, they are comfortable too with their elastic waist. Get them now at Dillard's for just $59.
