There’s nothing like the holidays to bring a little oomph back into your wardrobe. This year, designers answered the call with brand-new, over-the-top items you didn’t even know you needed: Think a gilded baroque-style pump in gold, a blue velvet bag bedecked with pearls, a sophisticated solar-panel equipped coat for charging your devices on the go, and a groundbreaking timepiece that’s as striking as it is technically impressive. Whether you’re looking for the ultimate gift for that special someone or hoping to one-up your look from last year’s party circuit, each of these 14 finds for men and women are nothing short of lust worthy. Go ahead, drool a little. 'Tis the season for opulence, after all.
