It's the holidays and you barely have time for anything, much less for sitting in front of your closet wailing "what am I going to wear?!" We hear you loud and clear, girls. Below, five outfits we've styled with just ten pieces from our new Christmas capsule wardrobe. You may think that glitzy threads are difficult to wear over and over, but with a bit of layering, we've made it possible—covetable, even. How's that for outfit repeating?

Miss Selfridge Shift dress, P2970, SM Aura; Zara Gold pleated midi skirt, P2995, Greenbelt 5; Jimmy Choo Madeline sandals, P45,110, Shangri-la Plaza East Wing
You could, of course, wear this metallic shift dress all by itself, but for extra flair, toss a gold pleated midi skirt underneath to create a pretty ruffle-hem effect that goes perfectly with punchy purple ruffled stiletto sandals.

Forever 21 Turtleneck, P699, SM Megamall; H&M Velvet trousers, P3490, SM Makati; Mango Slingback mules, P2995, PowerPlant Mall; Parfois Tassel earrings, P899, SM Megamall
Spin a sleek turtleneck-and-trousers combo fresh by throwing in some velvet. The plush fabric looks great atop a pair of quilted gold mules that are so Gucci! Add tassel danglers and you've got on-trend texture for days.

Forever 21 Turtleneck, P699, SM Megamall; Zara Gold pleated midi skirt, P2995, Greenbelt 5; Topshop Camisole, P1295, SM Aura; Charles & Keith Flats, P2199, Greenbelt 5
Mix your metals! Layer a lacy, silver-gray camisole over your trusty black turtle, then tuck into the aforementioned gold pleated midi.
Tip: You can wear flats to a party, and there's no better way to do it than with a bit of fur.

Joseph Silk slip dress, P27,599, SM Aura; H&M Velvet trousers, P3490, SM Makati; Jimmy Choo Madeline sandals, P45,110, Shangri-la Plaza East Wing
It's the tricky dress-over-pants look! Choose a silk slip to drape over your velvet trousers—the higher the slit, the better the effect (especially as you strut into that fete)! Avoid unwanted stumpiness via a pop of color; namely, brightly-hued skyscraper heels.

There are few things chicer than that boudoir aesthetic, so step out in your negligee. Let a lacy camisole peek out from under the décolletage of your sexy slip dress, then slide into those bedroom-ready fuzzy flats. Goodnight!
