>> thank you. it's good to be back.
>> good to have you back. choosing something for holiday parties can be difficult. let's get right to them. winter white ensemble, which is always good for the holidays. we have our model, jamie . come on out, jamie . people may be afraid of white if you're full figured .
>> no matter what your body type is, no matter what your size is, white is intimidating. this is a fabulous winter white. she looks incredible in it. it has a beaded collar from simply be.com. to have the right fit. and then the silhouette falls into place. she looks amazing.
>> fantastic. we should point out that stole, by the way, is faux fur .
>> it's faux fur .
>> beautiful accessory.
>> $17 from h & m. love that. little bit of an interest piece.
>> all of the out fits you're seeing here are under $100.
>> reporter: >> you bargained shopped for us as well. jamie , thanks. you look great. festive wrap dress , always figure flattering.
>> our model, diane , is now showing us how to wear it.
>> the amazing thing about a wrap dress , why it became so famous is because it looks amazing on every single body type . we have diane , a little bit of an apple shape. it makes her silhouette look incredible. and then the bright red color, bright colors might be a little intimidating. red, emerald, purple, all those jewel tones look so on for the season, christmas, new years. i think she looks flawless.
>> exactly. she does. and even beyond the holidays this is a dress you could wear to work even.
>> she's good to go year round. this is a great investment piece. $90.
>> she looks fantastic. you look great, diane . thank you so much for those beautiful accessories, too. the next holiday out fit this one can be worn from work to weekend.
>> here is our model.
>> people feel pressured to wear dresses all season long. you don't have to be in a dress to have a little more sparkle. we have this metallic jean from simply be.com. it's $45. it's such a high-fashioned look, straight off the runway with matthew williamson . this is something, again, she can buy separate. make them last the entire season.
>> the metallic jean is so in right now, too, right? that's something she could wear year round, too. thank you very much. you look great. and our final look we're calling every day glam. we all need a little every day glam. here is our model, merrill. i think that's plain old glam.
>> it's gorgeous.
>> but looks comfortable, like a jersey sort of dress.
>> incredibly comfortable. stretchy jersey material. really nice weight to it. you don't have to worry about it being too flimsy, which is a really big problem. it's a $51 dress available in sizes 14 through 24, which is great. great range of sizes. and i think she looks amazing. it's something she can wear to her office party really easily and add those bright blue pumps from aldo. they add a great pop of color. your holiday party for your office, i used to be in the corporate world. it's your time to shine and show a little bit of your flare. a little bit of ruching, great faux detail. subtle sparkles throughout the dress.
>> she looks great. it's not your ordinary little black dress .
>> nicolette mason, great job.
>> thank you.
>> you look great, to all our models. hope you do have a party to get
