StyleWatch rule #121: Just like you can get away with wearing a bikini top as a bra during the summer (we’re not the only ones who do that sometimes, right?), it’s totally appropriate to get decked out in a glittery mini during the holiday season.

And that’s why there’s no better time than this Saturday night to try out a look like Jennifer Hudson‘s dazzling dress.

While we’ve seen our fair share of sequin dresses, Hudson’s emerald number feels fresh thanks to the silver and white panels. (And lucky for you, we found a similar version by Ali Ro.)


We recommend taking a cue from the star and going for opaque tights and black platforms (like this $75 pair) to stay out of bachelorette-party-in-Vegas territory.

And though Hudson goes for a bombshell look by finishing the outfit off with some crazy curls, the outfit could also go in a more downtown direction if you swap the waves for a sleek topknot and throw on a leather bomber jacket — your call! Tell us: What are you doing this weekend?
