Sparkle and shimmer and sequins, oh my! We've found the best of holiday style to bring a bit of good cheer into your wardrobe.
The neck and shoulders are super sexy, and a body area most women like on themselves. Wear this with basic black pants to gussy up; pair it with jeans for a holiday girls' night out.
Ann Taylor sweater, $88; anntaylor.com
Paired with a crisp white shirt, this skirt will make an elegant statement at every holiday party and dinner this season.
J.Crew skirt, $395; jcrew.com
We're a bit obsessed with black...again. It’s edgy, chic and goes with all. This piece of arm candy is something you can wear on its own or stack with other bracelets.
Ann Taylor bracelet, $68; anntaylor.com
These pants may not be sparkly, but we can't say no to a little shine. Top them off with a slouchy black blazer to put a festive spin on menswear.
Talbots pants, $119; talbots.com
We would wear this under everything for just a hint of sparkle. Pair it with a tweed blazer to make it a perfect in-office, pre-eggnog piece.
Gap tank, $20; gap.com
Part cozy knit, part eye-catching shawl—is there anything more we could ask from a sweater? No, no there is not.
J.Crew sweater, $148; jcrew.com
As we always say: Walk softly and wear a big ring. This elegant combination of colors will catch the light and add a luxe touch to your ensemble.
Jennifer Miller ring, $175; jennifermillerjewelry.com
Put your best (and most festive) foot forward with an über-feminine ballet flat. It's a simple way to inject some holiday cheer into even a casual ensemble.
Steve Madden flats, $80; stevemadden.com
A long-sleeve foil tee shimmers without the sequins, making it an easy (but no less extravagant) option for holiday weekend wear.
Generation Love shirt, $125; bloomingdales.com
Just because you're wrapped in a warm coat doesn't mean you can't shine. A pretty silver scarf brightens up any ensemble.
Anthropologie scarf, $118; anthropologie.com
We love sequins. We love animal prints. It only makes sense to pair them up every once in a while—throw this blazer over an LBD for a fun party look.
Karen Kane blazer, $178; bloomingdales.com
It can be hard to stand out from a sea of bright holiday metallics. All eyes will be on you with this number, which combines bronze and nude sequins with a funky chevron pattern.
Alice + Olivia dress, $550; shopbop.com
A pair of glittery heels doesn't have to look like it fell out of the Wizard of Oz. These are grounded with black suede so you can strut in sophisticated style.
DV Dolce Vita platform pumps, $99; bloomingdales.com
Put a bow on it: cinch this over a jewel-toned sheath dress to make for a foolproof and simple holiday outfit. Plus, you can loosen it for extra comfort after that eighth mini quiche—it'll be our little secret.
Banana Republic belt, $40; bananarepublic.com
A slouchy sequined sweater is warm and cozy, but so chic that you can wear it to run errands and then slip it over a silk tank at night.
Ann Taylor shrug, $118; anntaylor.com

I would expect "more" from a fashion column. Basically you have mined the online sites of leading retailers for women. I can do the same thing. How about putting together styles/outfits that might be appealing, giving us ideas. This is little more than advertising for these stores.
