Some rules of thumb:
Deep red, white, black, and gold. Can't go wrong.
Velvet, sequin, mesh, sweater, metallic (on occasion).
Scoop neck, peter pan collar, deep V, skater, bodycon, maxi, babydoll (I'm trying to convince myself that this is coming back).
Whatever you do, make sure to add a little element of sparkle and shine, like sequined pumps or a gold necklace.
Oh! And it's cold so don't forget to wear tights or fuzzy socks.
