At it again, Vera Wang's Simply Vera collection at Kohl's helps us score sophisticated florals, statement baubles, and even wedged sneakers for Holiday 2012. While flipping through this lookbook, we had to remind ourselves of the price point — it's hard to believe that the lineup of pretty knits, metallic tops, velvet skirts (perfect for holiday parties), and staple ankle boots don't run over $160 — but that's kind of the best part. And because it's never too early to start your holiday shopping, there are a slew of great gift options: sparkly necklaces, perfect pajamas — read on for our big takeaways, then click through for a sneak peek.
- This autumnal-feeling sheath  would be chic office-to-after-hours option. We'd style it up with a chunky cardigan and a belt at the waist, then finish with cozy tights and a pair of lace-up booties.
- As far as footwear goes, you don't need much beyond a great pair of staple ankle boots, like these  in your closet. You'll wear them again and again with skirts, dresses, jeans, and beyond.
- These classic pajamas  would make a totally adorable gift — though we'd have a hard time not buying a pair for ourselves, too.
