Steal These Runway Looks for Your Next Holiday Party

Runway-inspired holiday looks

One of my favorite times of year in fashion is the holiday season. The glitzy and glamorous looks that would be tacky other times of the year are appropriate and even coveted. Sequins, beading, silver and gold fabrics are shown in dresses, little jackets and accessories. Decadence and sparkle are the key trends to pick up on. It’s a time to indulge and express your inner fashion diva, so get creative and go for the sparkle. Check out these looks hot off the runway to inspire your next holiday party look.

An easy way to add glamour to your look is with a beaded jacket or skirt. This Lanvin jacket in black with gold detail and feather collar is a dramatic statement you may want to keep on throughout the night (left). A pretty mini skirt with oversized sequins in black is a classic Armani favorite (right).


 A cocktail dress in a metallic color is a modern way to add shine. Isaac Mizrahi (left) shows off a copper tone mini while Carolina Herrera designs a silver and black, strapless cocktail dress with pleating details (right).
