There are ways to punch up your outfit — and then there's the Liv Tyler way to do it. While promoting The Hobbit last night, the actress gave an all-black outfit a cheery lift with a fiery pair of Tabitha Simmons ankle-strap heels ($1,245). It's another testament to our styling theory that just a touch of the holiday hue goes a long way, especially when it's paired with an otherwise all-black look. It's the more modern approach to festive styling. Rather than commit to that over-the-top party dress, you get just the right dose of eye-popping red. It's also not at all hard to re-create, and it doesn't require the exact same outfit approach, either. All you need to steal Liv's statement-making style is your favorite LBD and tights, black shorts, and a tuxedo blazer, or any combination of dressed-up black separates. Of course, if you don't already have the same standout heels in your closet, now's the perfect time to shop a pair of our editors' picks. And if you want to amp it up a notch, embrace Liv's other on-point finishers, like a pair of decadent earrings and a bold red lip.
