The Cocktail LWD
Our pick: Free People Reflected Moonlight Dress ($98)
Why it's a holiday staple: Instead of immediately reaching for your trusty LBD (which is totally fine too), we're indulging this season's obsession with Winter white, albeit with a shimmery twist. This metallic foil-infused LWD gives off a much more holiday-appropriate vibe that bodes well for mixing with dark opaque tights. The best part? You can style this kind of LWD with edgier outerwear or a really soft oversize cardigan to go the cozy route, or with a ladylike cocoon coat to give it a refined feel.
