It depends, I have black pants that come tight at the ankle and may buy something new for the top. I do have a beautiful green silk blouse if I don't see something I like.
I have sequined black flats that will be pretty too.
Banana Republic Factory has really nice necklaces for under $25 that can dress it up so I may stop in and pick one out. A couple of them are layered, but all on one necklace, and look very pretty.
Red lipstick and nails, and am all set!

Plan to pair them with bronze shoes and a black/cream python bag.

What will you be wearing?
Update: no bronze shoes for me. Wrong fit! But I did grab these instead on Cyber Monday for 50% off!

They seem like they'll be fairly comfy. We'll see after my party tonight!

I saw this and bought it -will try on later.
I have something similar (not blingy though) and it fits great.
This is red with some tiny sequins across the front- nice and sparkly but not over the top. I would wear with black pants or skirt and a cardigan. and it's 14.99.

My standby - A black velvet long skirt or pants with a variety of tops. For more casual parties the top is usually a red sweater with a scarf or Christmas pin. For more formal parties the top is silk with a jacket or shawl. The color of the top can vary, but it is usually a jewel tone.

I've got a black jumpsuit (the top is blousy, so not hoochie) that looks great with different jackets or sweaters. It all depends on the weather. Then I accessorize from there. I love separates in the winter (it actually does get cold down here in the South).
