Foiled Again


For nighttime glitz, try a bronze pleated skirt. A black tank softens the wattage for a not-so-heavy metal look.

Over the Moon


Master your holiday mani with a double-edged design, like this one created by Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen global color ambassador. First apply two coats of black polish, such as Lauren B. Nail Polish in Paparazzi ($18). Then use a tiny detailing brush to draw and fill in half-moons on the base of nails with a rose gold color—try Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Gilty Party ($8). Clean brush and swipe the silver shade across the tip of each nail. We like Essie Nail Polish in Après-Chic ($8.50). Finish with topcoat.

Get the Look: Clutch, I.N.C. International Concepts,, $70.

Gilt Complex


Mix metals and textures for a polished one-two punch. The warmth of a gauzy gold knit paired with the cool of silver skinnies makes these opposites attract.

Get the Look: Top, Bishop + Young,, $90. Pants, Lisette L Montreal,, $158. Earrings, R.J. Graziano., $45. Crystal bracelets, Swarovski,, $69 each. Gold bangle, Coco Loves Rome,, $24.

In the Pink


Soft and sweet—rose gold flatters all eye colors and skin tones. Try a powder version with tiny particles for a more lustrous effect, says makeup artist Troy Surratt. NYX Cosmetics Baked Shadow in Ambrosia ($6) and Urban Decay Eyeshadow in YDK ($20) are great options.

Silver Wear


The key to wearing full-on sequins that don't look disco? A dress that has darkening shades of gray, like this ombré shift.

Get the Look: Dress, Maia,, $99. Earrings, Simply Vera Vera Wang,, $18.

Lip Service


Rich red lips make any outfit extra luxe. Apply a shimmery color over a complementary glossy one for sophisticated sheen, says Surratt.

Get the Look: Dress, The Limited,, $120. Earrings, R.J. Graziano,, $35. Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer in The Queen Is Dead,, $22.
