The winter is full of perks. The food is decadent and plentiful, people are full of cheer, gifts are exchanged and you’re free to rock eye-catching, festive ensembles and accessories all day, every day. Cool patterns and lush fabrics are the norm for this time of year, but nothing conveys holiday fashion quite like beaded garments, shoes and bags.

Forget what you thought you knew about beaded garments because we’ve strung together dazzling beaded looks you’ll want to wear throughout the entire holiday season.
