If you're stumped for holiday party OOTD ideas, we feel you. After all, 'tis the season to outshine, and a bit of clever pre-fête planning can do wonders for each grand entrance you'll have to make. You can't go wrong when you take cues from these ever-stylish girls and what they wore at the Charles & Keith and Preview Girls Club's Holiday Soiree:
Amina Aranaz-Alunan's texture play was a tasteful, restrained cocktail of finishes: Observe how she threw a high-collared velvet blazer over a shimmering knit, an auburn satin slip skirt, and plush midnight-tinged stilettos. Though she's clearly big on subtly luxe, sensuous fabrics, she's also got a taste for miniatures—spy the microscopic little top-handle she toted!

In our country of near-eternal summers, it's more than easy to get away with showing a hint of skin even during the holidays, and Bianca Roque-Brandner had the winning formula down pat. We're liking her muted play on token Christmas hues via a beribboned, bloom-brocaded Rhett Eala top, forest green chunky-chained bag, and strappy sandals.

Evergreen is the word, declared Andie Javelosa, who turned an on-trend utilitarian vibe dainty with a stem-baring minidress silhouette. She's proven that matching your purse to your shoes, an age-old nugget of fashion wisdom you may consider dated, still works! The key is in choosing modern shapes like a dual-pocketed flap and chain-adorned ankle boots.

Wanda Chen was the easiest to spot, wearing a flirty, polka-dotted babydoll frock. She punctuated her look with pristine white mules and a roomy croc-embossed trapeze that'll easily transition from seaside to city, zero sweat.
