Silver skirt

If ever a skirt screamed “holiday,” it would surely be this one adorned with glass and metal beads that make for a sparkly silver look we fell for immediately ($275). Pair this pretty, pleated mini with a black tank and heels and minimal jewelry to really let the skirt stand out.

Metallic shift

Shift dresses need not be boring. In fact, for the holiday season, they should sparkle! This sleek silver shift in a flattering hourglass silhouette does and we’ll be sporting it at more than a few festive fetes ($110). Add black pumps and a clutch since this is a dress that really doesn’t need much dressing up.

Silver skinnies

Move over blue, make way for a new denim hue to take the holidays by storm. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your look this season, give these sexy silver J Brand skinny jeans a try ($238). Add some ankle booties and an oversize slouchy sweater to complete the comfy but ultra-chic look.

Leather jacket

Slip into this metallic leather bolero jacket to add instant eye-catching appeal to any outfit ($295). The cute cropped piece would work with denim, but it would look equally on trend with a black pencil skirt when you’re bored of blazers. Plus, the metallic shimmer is perfect for holiday parties.

Embellished sweater

Even if your sweater collection is well stocked for the season, if there’s one more you make room for, let it be this one with metallic embellishments on the shoulders ($70). We’ll be wearing ours with dark denim and stacked heel boots for a simple but stylish nod to the holiday season.
