I've always thought of Christmas as a time to dress up and how apropos as cascading ball skirts and elegant tea length skirts in jewel tones are hotter than ever right now. Just look at all the ways to cut the formality with tanks, tees and oversized sweaters.

From Sharon Stones classic pairing of a Gap shirt and Vera Wang skirt at the 1996 Oscar's to Jenna Lyons feather-y number at the Met Ball in 2011. The look is timeless and ladylike without trying to hard.

I have an black ball skirt hanging in the back of my closet that I have worn exactly once (with a ballerina wrap sweater no less). Maybe this Christmas its time to break it out again, pair it with a something like this...and be all dressed up with nowhere fancy to go.
