We'll tell you this right now: this is as close as you'll get to wearing your sweats to a party.

Seriously. In the same vein as other punched-up loungewear, you get the best of both worlds. Let's be clear, though: this is kind of a harvest-moon situation. Yes, you can don these dressy sweatshirts year-round, but we find that these ultraembellished, lace-covered, bejeweled, and feathered iterations make the best statement during the holidays.

Instead of opting for a festive cocktail dress, go with something that's fun, eye-catching, and that basically solves all your styling problems in one go. There's a 3.1 Phillip Lim sequined, colorblocked top (pictured here) that we're betting even the sportiest styler will fall for, but if you're not one for the sparkle, don't sweat it. We've got more subtle metallic foiling and houndstooth print where that came from. Ten, to be exact.

Now, all that's left to do is add a slick pair of black trousers and pumps - or a pencil skirt, if you're feeling sexy - and you're ready to hit the holiday party circuit.
