Everyone remembers that one day each year when you walk into Harris Teeter, twirling your beach bag and wham! The holiday displays hit you like a frozen turkey to the face. 

A similar shock happens with your wardrobe; how quickly summer’s bare shoulders turn into winter’s multi-layers. And while we all secretly mourn the loss of the warm weather, the promise of some holiday sparkle on the horizon provides a little seasonal boost. 

The good news is what you already have in your closet is most likely still a la mode. Few will dispute the elegance of a classic sheath dress. Sequins are always celebrated, as is the timeless LBD. If you’re looking to add something new to your festive mix, skip the usual reds and greens and opt instead for a pop of color like tangerine or turquoise. Satin or metallic fabrics are bound to make any party-giver (or goer) shine. 

For a less flashy statement, go for a high-necked dress or pieces with quilted or patchwork accents. 

But remember, holidays are always a good excuse to get out of your fashion comfort zone, so dare to flair!
