Ashley Madekwe's Holiday Outfit Tips

The Best Holiday Dressing Tip We've Heard All Season

You don't have to wear sequins to get noticed during the holidays. That's a lesson Ashley Madekwe practices and preaches. The actress and style setter behind the blog Ring My Bell showed off a pretty perfect, if not low-key, party look in a leather jacket, t-shirt, and Bebe Gold Collection embellished miniskirt ($298). Note: those are studs, not sequins.

That's because the fashion-savvy Madekwe knows that if you want to be a standout, you've gotta separate yourself from the pack: "Move away from the sequins, everyone is going to be wearing them. I'm more about embellishments like chunky jewels, studs and nails." Call it the downtown girl's holiday look if you want; the effect is a bit edgier and so much more unexpected than the sequined party top or glittered mini. Add lace-up booties à la Madekwe, and the result has "style pro" written all over it.
