Fun and Festive

We're only a week away from 2017, but if you're like me, the next few days on your calendar are jam-packed with holiday parties, family functions, and New Year's Eve plans. And of course, you're going to need an amazing outfit for each one.

It's not too late to find some amazing fashions, and the joyful atmosphere of the holiday season is the perfect avenue for expressing your excited, inner-child through your wardrobe. Here are a few ways you can make your outfits extra fun and festive for the rest of 2016.

Make it Sparkle

To really stand out in a crowd, make sure your dress sparkles as much as your personality. Sequin covered midis are a popular style of the dresses available at Lyst, with designers like Vince Camuto and Dress the Population embracing the look. Notice the colors of the dresses as well, most stay true to the shades of the season with reds, greens, golds, and silvers.

When you move in a dress covered in sequins, you'll twinkle and shine every time you pass a Christmas light, candle, and everything else that makes the season sparkle. It's a fun, eye-catching way to show your love for the holidays.

Have Fun with Footwear

You probably don't need an excuse to buy another pair of shoes, but the holiday season is the perfect time to indulge in some fun new footwear. There are a couple of takeaways you can get from browsing the E! News holiday shoe guide if you're still not sure what to you want to step out in for the holiday season.

For starters, you can't go wrong with a pair of suede, thigh-high boots. They'll keep you warm, and they're a great addition to any dress/tights combo. Second, if you go with a classic pump, try a metallic color. Just like a sequined dress, the reflective surface of your metallic shoes will make you stand out with every step you take. Finally, embrace fun accents and jewels. Whether it's a big bow or a studded strap, holiday footwear should be fun above all else.

Embrace Your Inner Monster

You want to make sure you pick the right bag to complete your ensemble, so if you see a bag that's fuzzy, furry, and has a big goofy face stitched on it, believe it or not, that's the bag for you.

Now, if you think the styles might make you look like a character from The Muppets, you're not the only one. In fact, the similarities were probably intentional. A new ad for the Kate Spade NY holiday line features Zosia Mamet and Miss Piggy wearing the same oversized, furry coat, and Mamet donning a pink, fuzzy monster-eque wallet accessory. Throughout the ad, the two showcase the different pieces of their Kate Spade wardrobe, each piece more fun, colorful, bold than the last.

You can even find Miss Piggy featured on a few pieces of the new line, as well as her signature phrase, "Who, Moi?"

There are only so many times of the year that you can get away with wearing an over-the-top outfit. The holidays are one of them. Get out there and let your creativity run wild.

Happy holidays, fashionistas!
