Lyndsey Butler: The designer of the Veda clothing collection adores traditional holiday fabrics such as velvet, lurex, lace and beaded silks year-round, so for the holiday season she goes the nonflashy route and sticks to monochromatic dressing.
"I do one shade only, head to toe," Butler says. "My personal favorites are navy or cranberry. I love the look of matching my tights to my shoes." Her clothes may be relatively tame, but Butler manages to punch things up with most of her blond hair freshly dyed a cool blue.
John Eshaya: The JET by John Eshaya designer pulls out his Tom Ford black velvet bow tie each holiday season, wearing it with an array of items including jeans and a denim or plaid shirt, a tuxedo or with a cardigan. "I wear it with pretty much anything and everything," he says.
Emily Current and Merrit Elliott: The design duo and celebrity stylists go for bright and sparkly attire with a charming vintage feel. Current favors Miu Miu glitter heels and a 1920s rhinestone headband she picked up at the Santa Monica Vintage Expo. She punctuates the look with a bright red or hot pink matte lipstick.
