Holiday parties are your time to dazzle, so don't settle for a look that's less than spectacular. TV host and stylist Louise Roe, recently launched the Inside Perspective campaign, tipped us off to these festive finds that'll have you perfectly dressed for every special occasion this winter, whether you're attending a Christmas dinner, an office soirée, or a New Year's bash.
You can never go wrong with a little black dress. This Bloomingdales exclusive has a front twist detail that adds dimension to an otherwise basic sheath. Keep it simple with a pair of black heels.

Puffy sleeves add some fun to a basic long-sleeved blouse. Pair this cherry red shirt with dark wash jeans, black dress pants, or a skirt — the possibilities are endless.
Cold weather calls for boots! The perfect combo of stylish and comfortable, you'll be able to stay on your feet and keep warm in these. Balking at the price point? "Over-the-knee boots are always in style, so you can feel good about investing in this timeless pair," Roe says. "They have just enough heel to be night-out appropriate, but are comfortable enough to wear with jeans and a casual sweater for your family's holiday dinner."

With a thick three-inch heel, these pointed suede pumps allow you to party on your feet all night long. They come in nude, black, dark grey, navy blue, and red.
Because of its neutral tones, this beige wrap coat can be thrown over just about any holiday party outfit to look good while staying warm. "Style it over chic wide leg trousers, or your favorite LBD," Roe suggests.
You can keep it casual with jeans, but lean toward a dark wash with no rips. "Every girl needs the perfect pair of skinny jeans, and these high-waisted ones are sure to be universally flattering," Roe says. "Wear them to your work party with a flirty blouse, leather jacket, and high heels."
