Dresses available at Banana RepublicThese would be great for a cocktail party or after-five office Christmas party. (Try not to show too much skin at the office party, remember you will still have to face your boss the next week!)
If you want to add some pizzazz to black pants or a skirt, here are my suggestions:
Tops available at Victoria's SecretI LOVE both of these tops but you shouldn't wear these if you are top heavy because there is no support in back. And please wear nipple adhesives because EVERYONE doesn't need to know when you're cold.
shrug or wrap over your dress or sleeveless top.
And for all ladies don't forget to add COLOR! Just because it's the holidays doesn't mean you are limited to red and black. Try shades of plum, cranberry or emerald.
