Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper in holiday dress
The perfect holiday dress doesn't have to be red, green, or even metallic. A deep plum hue is a refreshing take on festive dressing -- and with statement sleeves, a dress like this becomes an instant hit. Just add a statement necklace.

While ruffle sleeves truly make this dress stand out, the accessories you add will send it into home-run status. For this look, I chose delicate gold jewelry -- including a unique dreamcatcher necklace -- and a metallic clutch that's right on-point for party season. To polish it off, sock booties give off sophisticated chic vibes while still being comfy enough to wear all night.

In terms of holiday beauty, you can't get much more festive than a shimmery glitter eyeshadow. This one by Stila is hands-down my favorite -- it's got quite a cult following too! It's tasteful, elegant, yet doesn't skimp on the shine. I'll be rocking this all holiday long!

How gorgeous is Rockefeller Center at Christmastime? Of course we had to get there early (try 8 am) to beat the crowds for these pics, but it was so worth it. This dress was also surprisingly warm, as it's a thick sweater material - perfect for chilly days!
