Getting all glammed up for the holidays is definitely at the top of my “favorite things” list. Holiday parties are a good excuse to put on a little shimmer and shine and really have others take notice. Lace, sequins, a daring neckline and a pair of killer heels – they’re all fair game for this festive time of year. So I asked my staff to do a little party shopping online and share a few of their favorite things for holiday celebrations, and of course I had to do a little shopping myself! This Armanda tunic and leggings above would be a super addition to my holiday wardrobe for less-dressy occasions, but for a fancy party I like the Abygael outfit below – both are from Anne Fontaine, a terrific boutique on Michigan Avenue.

Senior Designer Angela LaVista – “When I saw this outfit I thought it would be perfect for a holiday party with friends – a bit of sparkle and shine for the festive touch.”

Junior Designer Lauren Benditzky – In general, the huge trends for this year are sequins, velvet, and blush pink. I would wear the top and skirt, below,with boots, heels or flats. The dress, below those, could be worn with pumps or sandals.

Studio Manager Lauren Brown – This dress would be perfect for a holiday party. t could easily be dressy with the perfect strappy heels and a clutch, or dressed-down-edgy with flat, over-the-knee boots and a classic leather jacket.

PR Manger Laura Bianchi – There’s nothing like lace and a fitted silhouette to make me feel feminine and festive. It’s a little demure, a little sexy, and the stretchy fabric makes it easy to wear, too! Just simple earrings and nude kitten sling-backs and I’d be good to go.
