As the invitations roll in this holiday season, you're probably staring into your closet hoping holiday-appropriate outfits will throw themselves on your bed.

It may not be that easy to pull off festive ensembles, but you can put together a variety of looks with minimal effort by using these simple tips (an added bonus: most pieces shown here are under $100!).

 Adorn Your LBD

Your favorite little black dress can be a show-stopper by adding some eye-catching adornments. This velvet number by Dorothy Perkins ($50) is jazzed up with an Isabella Oliver wrap belt ($72), funky shoes by Doll House ($64), emerald earrings by Fantasy Jewelry Box ($50) and a sparkly clutch from TopShop ($74). Finally, this feather head band from Girl Props ($8.99) adds just the right amount of sass, while staying holiday-appropriate. Pick one statement piece, in this case, the head band, and keep the glitz to a minimum.
