J.Crew Clea Dress
This wool-and-nylon sheath is the total package: timeless, figure- flattering, and totally ladylike. Add a pair of dangling earrings, and you’re ready for after-hours fetes. Also in heather charcoal.

MNG by Mango Coco Tweed Jacket
Think tweed is too “walk the corgis” dull? A trim cut updates a classic jacket, while flecks of red give it holiday spirit. Wear it over silky tops and pencil skirts for an elegantly festive look.

Anne Klein Tuxedo Pant
Come party season, swap out your usual black trousers for a style with a bit more flare (though no less wearability), like these wool-and-rayon tuxedo pants.
