We Found The Gold Standard Of Holiday Party Dressing

Yes, Midas? We gotchu

All that glitters isn't necessarily gold, but this year, it absolutely is. While everyone and their boss scour their closets and department store racks for outfits fit for a magpie, we're reaching for one thing and one thing only: gold. What other color combines the joyfulness of yellow with the bright energy of orange, and then wraps it all up in a shiny package with enviable levels of luxury? Certainly not silver.

All to say, we think it's a very good thing Converse channeled its inner Midas for a new take on its iconic One Star sneaker. The new One Star Metallic Platform sneaker is everything a holiday party outfit should be: eye-catching and comfortable. Gilded and gorgeous—that's how we're trying to be all day, every day.

Midas to the TouchMidas may turn everything he touches into solid gold, but that, then, calls for a fuzzy (and sometimes floral) contrast. Faux fur and an easy, breezy shift dress classes any holiday party look up with a playful twist.

The Editor's EditOversized silhouettes paired with unexpected materials were the de rigueur look for fashion editors this year. Might as well ride that trend into the new year with a little elevation because life's better on a platform.
