Is there any busier time than holiday season? We think not!

From parties to shopping to all the events that come at the end of the year, there's very little time to focus on yourself. But even if you're short on time, you can still look absolutely fabulous at your next get-together.

Jené Luciani, co-author of "Get It! A Beauty, Style and Wellness Guide to Getting Your 'It' Together," stopped by TODAY Tuesday to share tips and tricks for getting ready in 30 seconds or less.

Dress up your jeans

Who says jeans can't be worn to a holiday party? They can actually be the first building block of a fierce look. Grab some dark denim and pair them with a sparkly top and a velvet pump in a bold color for a perfectly festive look.

When it comes to makeup, try a bold smokey eye and a burgundy lip to play up the colors of the clutch and shoes. And you'll be ready for a night out on the town!

Leggings that are fit for a party

Luciani has some great news for legging lovers: You can wear them to any soiree this season! It all comes down to styling. Instead of classic black leggings, Luciani went for a printed version with some gold flair to keep it festive. Paired with a seasonal red tunic, cape and pointy pumps, it's a look that's sure to be a hit.

With pants that are so bold, you can keep your makeup look simple. Add some shimmery gold shadow to make your eyes stand out and head out the door.

Take your sweater dress from day to night

Your everyday sweater dress can also be one of your best holiday looks yet. All you need to do is pair it with a statement necklace, pointy pumps and glittery silver clutch. It's that simple!


Try pairing this outfit with a bold eye, neutral lips and messy chignon for an overall look that's festive and effortless.

The one and done

A jumpsuit really is a girl's best friend! This fashion-forward staple always looks fabulous and can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. If you're headed to a fancy soiree, add on a chic tuxedo style blazer and some pumps.

To dress up your look even more, style the hair into loose, low ponytail with some curls. Luciani suggests keeping your makeup subtle, but adding a chic statement with a bold red lip.
