Leather gloves are one of the chicest accessories of the season and an easy way to add a dose of sophistication and polish to your look. Whether you're in the market for printed, classic, colorful, or even some with shearling accents, we have the best pairs to keep your hands stylishly toasty.
Kirsten Dunst wowed us in a shocking pink Christian Dior gown at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of On the Road back in May — and over six months later, her red-carpet look is providing serious style inspiration for New Year's Eve. We love the idea of copying Kirsten's party-ready ensemble for a night on the town this holiday; all you need is a great maxi dress in a bold shade of fuchsia, a sleek black waist belt, and a shimmery box clutch. While this outfit is definitely on the more glamorous side, what better time is there to get dressed to the nines than New Year's Eve? See how we styled up a look similar to Kirsten's, and then click below to shop pieces now.
There's a lot of buildup that goes into the party season. Not that we don't love all the outfit planning, but it can be a bit of a letdown to find that perfect party look only to realize you probably won't be wearing it again (or at least anytime soon). Those can be some big investments for one-time-only wear, so to save you from any buyer's remorse that might settle in when the party ends, we're showing you how to put those pieces to good use well after the holiday season. We scoured the market for three of our favorite seasonal pieces — then we put them to the test with a party-perfect look and a look to wear long after the ball drops. We're pleased to report that each of these pieces easily pulls double duty. Click on to see and shop all the inspiration in this holiday edition of now-and-later styling.
There are party dresses of the usual sort — LBDs, fit-and-flare confections, maybe something in lace — but on NYE, don't reach for the usual suspects; instead, let Camilla Belle inspire you to reach for something sequined and totally glamorous. Sequins might seem like a forgone conclusion on New Year's, but that's just because nothing feels quite so festive — and there's nothing wrong with that. So we're taking cues straight from Miss Belle and embracing the high-wattage shine on a silvery, stem-baring minidress. The best way to complement a mini like this isn't with added glitz, but with a few well-placed jewels and a metallic clutch in hand to play off (but not upstage) the glitter. And the ultimate secret-weapon finisher? A pair of sky-high nude pumps (with a comfy platform!) that make your legs look even longer. All you have to do is shop to get the look just in time to make a jaw-dropping arrival at any of your NYE soirees.

Click on now to see and shop your perfect NYE 2013 outfit, from a modern take on the vintage flapper dress to glamorous metallics.
While previous seasons have seen the rise of the chain-strap and the portfolio-size clutch, this Winter is all about handheld glamour with breathtaking and bedazzled clutches. From Jason Wu's chinoiserie-inspired box number to Zara's snazzy (and budget-friendly!) sparkles, we have six clutches you'll fight to get your hands on this season. Oh, and of course, we couldn't overlook our favorite interlocking Cs — which could only mean Chanel — and will never go out of style!
Searching for some NYE dressing inspiration? We love the idea of going for the gold — like Kate Moss, seen here wearing a gold lamé Marc Jacobs gown — for a look that's nothing short of jaw-dropping. With just a few pieces, you too can achieve the same stunning King Midas effect. The key piece here is the gown. We love the lamé finish on Kate's dress, but a gold-sequined gown will work just as well. Once you've found your perfect dress, finish off the look with big sexy hair, smoky kohl-lined eyes, a bold gold cuff, and a statement necklace. Yes, it's that easy. Shop the look below and get ready to welcome the New Year in major style.
Christmas is two days away, so we have to ask — are you ready? To celebrate the most festive time of the year, we're sharing our personal editors' wish list with you. There's still time! Since we've been good fashion editors this year, we're asking Santa for luxurious Winter coats, delicious scented candles, kitchen gadgets to up our cooking game, and, of course, our dream-ticket shoes and bags.

You don't have to pull out the party dress to get festive for NYE. Drawing a little inspiration from the men's department, Olivia Palermo proved that the tux is a chic (and pretty sexy) alternative to the usual holiday fare. So whether you're a no-frills kind of girl or you're looking to mix up your regular dressing routine, we present to you this all-occasion-appropriate alternative that's also not hard to re-create. Look for a tuxedo-style blazer and slim trousers (note: it doesn't have to be a matching suit). Then, add a white button-down — something silky will look especially elegant. As for the finishing touches, this is where you can glam it up with some feminine flair. Add interest with unique finds, like Olivia's plexiglass clutch, and a pair of statement heels, like a leopard-print pump à la Palermo or a heel in a brilliant color. Because the suiting is pretty understated, it leaves ample room to play with accessories, so even subtle additions, like Olivia's red nails (or a red lip) will have a major, NYE-worthy impact. Just shop our editors' picks below to channel the same chic play on the tux for any of your NYE plans.
