An LBD is a classic staple, whether it's the holiday season or not. But during this  special time of year, a little black dress is a no-fail, sophisticated option when you're in a pinch and don't know what to wear to a last-minute get-together. I especially love a noir frock for that yearly office party!

Classy, elegant, and versatile, a black dress is literally perfect for any occasion under the sun - but you've heard that a million times before, right? Update this essential for the holidays with so-now bell sleeves and cold-shoulder cutouts for a modern spin on a forever favorite.

A hint of leopard effortlessly jazzes up a solid black dress. And you better believe these conservative pumps ensure a FULL night of dancing in total comfort. Form, meet function ;)

Every holiday look needs a spark of razzle dazzle - this shimmery gold clutch is mine. If nothing else, your bag is a great way to bring some festiveness into your outfit!

Updating my look further, I couldn't resist throwing on THE necklace of 2016. Chokers and I have become BFFs this past year, and I love how this one completes my outfit in a no-nonsense way. A longer necklace wouldn't have had the same impact.

Minimalism seems to be at an all-time peak right now. Going along with the trend, I layered two super simple studs to create a whole new original earring look - it almost looks like I'm wearing just one interesting earring. It's all about those geometric shapes!

Using the original Naked palette from Urban Decay, I gave myself a highly-pigmented bronze lid. I wanted something neutral yet festive with just a hint of shimmer. I also went neutral on my lips, giving myself a matte nude look courtesy of KoKo Kollection by Kylie Cosmetics (I'm wearing "Khlo$").

This is this year's go-to office party look for the holiday season. When attending a special event with co-workers, you definitely want to dress to impress, but you also don't want to overdo it. While a skintight dress and risky thigh-high slit may be great for Girls Night Out, they're big no-nos in the presence of your boss. This outfit is stylish, flattering, and festive without the work-related fashion faux-pas. Let's keep it classy, people!

Let's just take a minute to admire the shoulder cutout trend. I absolutely LOVE this look! It's sexy, flattering, fierce, and totally work appropriate all at the same time. Seriously, this (on sale) dress is just BEGGING you to wear it to your next shindig!

While this outfit is definitely not warm enough to be wearing outside, indoors it's the perfect getup to celebrate in style. This December I challenge you to style a completely different look for each one of your holiday parties. Keep coming back to Kat's Fashion Fix for more inspo!
