The question looms large around holiday season: What to wear to a “festive attire” occasion? Since it’s the 21st century, you can interpret this mandate pretty loosely (hint: it includes cocktail dresses). We suggest adhering to one of three categories (but not all three):

Rich color or fabric – a silk or satin in a jewel tone or winter bright
Volume somewhere – a ruffle, full skirt, or structured shoulder
Sparkle – sequins, embellishment, metallic fabric…or big jewelry.
