There's nothing like downtime with the family. Keep your look cozy and comfortable as you laze around at home with your loved ones. The plush knit GUESS? Karen sweater ($69) is just right: soft and relaxed, yet pulled together enough that you'll feel confident if an unexpected guest stops by.

Just say "yes" to endless sequins – because, really, there is no other time of the year when you can pull off this kind of endless shine without apologies. The MM Couture boatneck dress ($88) offers instant party perfection thanks to its brazen spangles and sheer chiffon back.

Save that kind of sexiness for cocktail parties and the like. At the annual office shindig, keep things considerably more conservative. Kensie offers a smart take on dressy-chic with its lace knit crewneck ($88), which layers perfectly over a light camisole. It's perfect with your everyday office pants, but consider the Kensie lace A-line skirt ($78) for a more festive look. Swingy and alluring in deep red, this skirt will go everywhere from evening soirees to afternoon teas.

If there's something extra posh on your schedule – think red carpet-worthy – then you've got to go the whole nine yards. Make it a night to remember, courtesy of the BCBGMAXAZRIA empire waist evening gown ($388). No detail is left to chance here; the meticulously split shoulder strap, the gentle ruching and the exquisite champagne hue all contribute to its incredible elegance.

Night out with the girls? Slip into your best skinny jeans, a pair of killer pumps and this dazzling MM Couture sequined top ($72). Cinched at the waist, it creates a gorgeous silhouette – and it's the be all and end all of night-out tops.
