Gotta love the holiday season. For one thing, we get to bid adieu to the stress and anxiety that encompasses the dreaded swimsuit season, and pack up our teeny tanks and short shorts in favor of lush layers and warm chunky knits. Tis the season for eating yummy food with people you love and the writing off extra pounds as necessary for heat insulation, after all! However, don't toss those Zone diet books to the side just yet, as this is also the season for getting your party on!Cocktail parties are a great chance to let your inner diva loose and to command the attention of every pair of eyes in your vicinity, and luckily, shopping for the perfect ensemble is far less daunting (and traumatic) than attempting to squeeze into that itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow Reem Acra bikini.
Check out our Cocktail Party SLIDESHOW for 25 items guaranteed to make you the star of any holiday fete, not to mention, motivate you to pass on that extra slice of pumpkin pie.
