Celebrate in style

Silver is a traditional color associated with the celebration of Hanukkah, but it’s also right on trend now. For a more formal dinner, this iridescent chiffon sheath dress from Ann Taylor ($198) is classy enough for any gathering, but still fun to wear. Paired with these gorgeous Nine West peep-toe pumps from Zappos ($89) and black opaque tights, you're bound to feel festive. Add a fun coil bracelet like this one from Chico's ($35) and you’re ready to turn heads.

A little bit of blue

Anything but blue

Blue is also traditionally linked to Hanukkah and is striking when paired with silver. This Vera Wang dress from Kohl’s ($23) is a beautiful shade of blue and can easily be dressed up or down. Add this statement necklace in silver from Chico’s ($65), which makes this outfit ready for any celebration. Trade up from your everyday handbag to this simple silver clutch purse from Shoe Buy ($32) to complete your Hanukkah outfit.
