    Leather is sure to make a statement any way you wear it. Look for pieces with leather accents, such as a pencil skirt. Pair it up with a feminine blouse and pumps for a festive holiday ensemble.

    Embellished sweaters are all the trend right now. You can wear yours with an A-lined skirt and pumps for a dressed up version, or with jeans and boots for a family get-together. Keep the rest of your ensemble simple and let the embellishments speak for itself.

    Nothing completes your holiday outfit more than a clutch. This season, look for metallics, such as silver or gold, which are always on trend.

    Not ready to break out a sequined minidress? Then go for an eye-catching sequined blouse instead. Top it with a pair of leather or black skinny jeans and some booties for any of your holiday get togethers.

    I personally love brocade for the holidays. It's an easy way to welcome in the holiday spirit. Try a lush texture in a pair of pants paired with red suede pumps.
