A new party-ready ensemble for every occasion may not be in the budget this year, but that doesn’t mean you have to surrender yourself to the same look for every soiree. With just one party dress, you can unlock a world of scene-stealing sartorial opportunities.

Playing the layering game is a clever way to switch up your after-dark look in a snap. For Christmas Eve cocktails or a swanky dinner date, pop a satin midi skirt in a dramatic burgundy hue over a shimmery sequined dress for a show-stopping look.

Up the edge and earn extra style points with a geometric clutch and don’t-mess cuff, then round out the look with classic ankle-strap heels and a swipe of pink lipstick.

Who says you can’t go full-on festive while managing to keep your ensemble feeling HR-approved? Class up your go-to party dress for the annual office holiday party with a boardroom-ready blazer. Team it with dreamy ankle-tie heels and a celestially inspired collar necklace for the ultimate balance of elegance and out-of-this-world glamour.

And because no detail should go unnoticed, take a trusty crossbody bag to the next level with a fluffy pom-pom embellishment.

Cold December nights call for a little extra oomph, and we think we’ve found it in this classy-yet-cool combo. Cover up by teaming a shimmery slip dress with a ladylike lace blouse with fabulously frilly cuffs.

Skip the glitter on the footwear front for added drama and dimension, opting instead for velvet lace-up heels that would look fabulous alongside an asymmetric earcuff duo and streamlined clutch. If making an entrance is what you’re after, don’t even think about leaving the house without a leopard faux fur coat in tow.

Modern glamour is your middle name, and this ensemble is proof. As if the rose gold sequins weren’t already enough to swoon over, go ahead and paired them with a quirky clutch and hot pink. For an upcoming holiday girls’ night out, team it with abstract hoops with artistic flair and a short faux fur jacket that brings the va-va-voom factor like none other.
