The Accessory That'll Make Your Holiday Dress Look Even Better

Odds are you'll go to a party this holiday season where you won't be the only girl wearing velvet, red, or sequins on her body. Those things are mainstays at December parties. But no matter what dress you're wearing, the right accessory can push it into more memorable territory—like with these combos below. (Feel free to copy them completely. Season's Greetings.)

Accessorize a leather dress with something a little more country club prim, like houndstooth.

With your shortest, swingiest dresses, wear metallic brogues instead of super-high stilettos.

Anything romantic or '20s-inspired looks great with tassel jewelry.

The right shoe can even turn your plaid family-dinner-dress into a party one.
