The holidays are most often associated with sparkles and glitters and excess, but that's not to say you can't take the low-key, edgy route when it comes to dressing up. One look that you can totally rock this time of the year? Utilitarian chic—think muted tones and cool layering. This trend blends perfectly with delicate shapes and a touch of shimmer, creating a balance of masculine and feminine for a look that’s wearable but stands out. And the most important thing of all? It goes really well with sneakers so you don't have to endure the pain wearing stilettos for hours can give you.
