Steals and deals: Tis the season for under $100...

Before you grab the sexiest, shiniest little number for your next holiday/new years eve party this year, let's mix it up! Do you really want to look like every other girl in the room? Or a Kardashian? Or a mannequin in the window of a bebe store?

Let's take some holidays staples, that should never be tampered with, and then press shuffle.
FOR (almost) ALL UNDER $100!!
*Blazer/dressy coat

Sexy yet masculine!
Black fitted blazer, keep it on the longer side
Chunky statement necklace, or layer a bunch of different ones together
Sexy bralets from Topshop to add a pop of color or texture
Lace bell bottoms (kinda hard to find- DIY, see post below)
Any fun platforms! I'm obsessed with the Lita platforms, but they're a bit spendy... :/

Romantic Goddess
Nude satin dress, looks best not too tight and very flowy. Grecian style!
Black lace anklets look amazing under any shoe!
Pumps, you can do in any color... but there's just something about burgundy
Layer statement cuffs, these two are my favorite from Topshop
I'm not into matchy match, but it's always classy to match your shoes with your lips and nails:)
If you don't usually wear red, try burgundy! you'll like!
Sequin beret here

Snow Bunny
Floral burnout dress from Free People, you could also switch this up with a crushed velvet dress!
Heart tights from Urban Outfitters layered under black anklets. Makes it almost look like you have ankle boots on! Fun look, try it!
Peeptoe velvet platforms from Asos, LOVE
Don't like wearing hats? Try a turban! And to make it festive, add sequins.
Fingerless gloves, and they're cashmere, AND they're only $38!
Any jacket with fur accents completes this look. You could even do a full on fur jacket!
These lace earrings from sense of fashion remind me of the holidays, but you can wear them with 

Ultra Glam
Asymmetrical satin maxi dress from Asos, perfect for a black tie holiday party
Pair it with a simple black patent pump (platform of course) These Sam Edelman's are comfy!
To mix it up a little, I threw in a black and gold beaded corset belt...that way you can do gold accessories like the sparkle clutch and the emerald drop earrings that are gold backed. Angelina Jolie wore earrings like these at the oscars, and I never got over them. Don't wear too much jewelry when you're going ultra glam, you'll just start to look like you're trying to hard. 
The lace gloves take it a step further if you're up for it...

I want to see your holiday looks! Post a link in the comments below!
