The countdown to Christmas is on! With only a few days left we are definitely in the dressing up spirit.

Putting together the perfect outfit for a holiday function is all about celebrating the season; and for us that means lots of red, green, and sparkle!

For special wintry occasions, a chic party dress and luxurious coat are in order. Make a bold entrance in Carolina Herrera's poppy red dress that is crafted from pure silk with an A-line silhouette, featuring two roomy front pockets. They can keep you warm while party hopping. Covering up with glamour, Faith Connection's stylish faux fur car coat offers an uptown vibe with its sleek design and twinkling rhinestone brooch. Bringing some holly jolly spirit to our footwear, Charlotte Olympia's 'Dolly' pumps gives you an excuse to steal kisses all evening long with their festive mistletoe shoe clips. Adding some serious arm candy, this charming clutch by Kate Spade is designed to look like a well-wrapped present, topped with a perfect golden bow. Carry it as a handheld and add a dose of cheer to your ensemble. For a pop of color, we wanted to bring out the pretty emerald green in our mistletoe pumps. These pair shaped drop earrings by Zales lend just the right amount of holiday twinkle. Rounding things out with the ultimate beauty ode to Christmas, we had to include a classic red lip. Tom Ford's Lip Color Matte creates a powerfully sophisticated look of unadulterated color. Formulated with a luxurious, velvet matte finish, the Lip Color smooths comfortably onto the lips with long-lasting staying power. Whether you're socializing with friends and family, or hitting up an annual work Christmas party, this outfit proves holiday fashion is one to be celebrated.
