Holiday Dressing for the Sequin-Averse

In partnership with our friends at Louise et Cie

A little black dress is to wardrobe woes what Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” is to the notoriously hectic holiday homestretch—panic seems to fade as soon as you put either one on. Keeping the look festive without leaning too heavily on glitz—after all, sequins are not for everyone—means reaching for a few classics: feminine heels, piled-on pavé jewelry, and a strategic swipe of cranberry-red lipstick.

FAMILY MATTERS

If the annual brunch skews more Plaza Hotel than plaid pajamas and pancakes, lean in to the ladylike vibe of a velvety shift dress with pointy-toe flats and a rosy cardigan-crossbody combo.

BROADWAY BOUND

Seats at the symphony? Front row at a show? An ivory overcoat is an elegant contender, but it’s the texture-rich accessories—shearling stole, croc-embossed clutch, pony-hair booties—that’ll really steal the spotlight.
