This season's holiday accessories are all about low-wattage luster. In years past you might have gone for enough glitz to be mistaken for a yule log afire, but this year 'tis the season for smoldering metallics layered on neutrals, textures inspired by nature and elegant pieces that look well worn enough to invoke the ghosts of Christmases past. Want to glam it up a little more, naughty style? Try star-spangling your “girlfriends” under a party dress and ditch the strapless bra, which never stays put for long enough for you to work your way through an eggnog, anyway.
