Mindy Kaling: A lush velvet style is perfect to ring in the holiday season. While a red or green iteration is always popular, we’re so into the idea of going for something a bit different similar to Kaling’s gorgeous blue. (Photo via Stefanie Keenan/Getty)
Lauren Conrad: When in doubt, go for a flowy silk dress for your upcoming event. Conrad’s pretty off-the-shoulder frock is ideal if you live somewhere warm, but an option with sleeves will be just as stylish if it's chilly where you live. (Photo via Phillip Faraone/Getty)
Tracee Ellis Ross: An eye-catching metallic look is so festive. Follow Ross’s lead and opt for a floor-sweeping style in a modern silhouette (loving the draped look!) paired with your favorite heels and accessories. (Photo via Rich Fury/Getty)
Reese Witherspoon: The beauty of an LBD is that it can work for just about any occasion. For the holidays, find a style like Witherspoon’s that is a bit more fun with interesting ruffles, prints, and beaded details. (Photo via Michael Tran/Getty)
Kendall Jenner: For a directional ensemble that will really make a statement, try a colorful one-shoulder dress like Jenner. While she went for strappy sandals, you could wear pointed-toe pumps or even a sleek pair of ankle boots to keep covered for the cooler temps. (Photo via Victor Boyko/Getty)
