To kick off the holiday season, Grammy-award-winning singer and songwriter LeAnn Rimes visited TODAY Tuesday. And her cheerful Christmas tunes and big smile weren't the thing getting us in a merry spirit. We couldn't help but swoon over her gorgeous, gray metallic dress.

From the cool slate color to the sweater-y feel and hint of sparkle, it is quite literally the perfect ensemble for just about any holiday occasion.

Instead of going straight for the sequins and risk looking like a disco ball, Rimes took an understated approach by sticking to a metallic fabric. Her dress added a bit of pizzazz to her performance every time she swayed and shimmied in Studio 1A.

Whether you're into gold, silver or copper, there's sure to be a metallic hue that makes you feel radiant. Pair it with tights and short booties if you're headed to the office, or throw on some stilettos and add a clutch for a festive holiday soiree.

Since the fabric already has some shimmer, your jewelry and accessories can be minimal. Simple studs and a dainty bracelet would look lovely, or add a solid statement ring like Rimes and you'll be out the door looking fabulous! We're also huge fans of her trendy half-up hairstyle, which adds a bit of edge to an otherwise conservative look.
