(And, of course, to invest in pieces that you’ll be able to wear well through 2015.) With that in mind, we rounded up the 20 best pieces that you can work into your existing wardrobe for a cool holiday look that stands out but still feels warm. From an unusual sequined skirt to wear with knits to Oscar de la Renta’s crystal collar necklace, click through our slideshow to see our picks.
