With holiday party Evites going out and candy canes quickly replacing the candy corns in the drugstore aisles, it's time to start thinking about our festive attire. We spend a lot of time rifling through the racks for the perfect dress, but that's often not the case when it comes to our outfit toppers. Still, there's no reason you should ever cover up a gorgeous dress with your North Face fleece (trust us, nothing ruins your look faster), so we're paying special attention to how we top it all off with 12 dressed-up jackets that could rival any party dress. Finished in eye-catching sequins, beading, and shine, these jackets and blazers weren't just meant to help you layer up, they were designed to make your outfit look amazing. Whether you choose to add them as the finishing touch to a perfect LBD, or as the focus of your skinny jeans + tank top ensemble, you won't want to wait till New Year's to wear one. Click on to get yours now.
