There are so many designer diffusion lines these days it's hard to keep track of what's actually worth purchasing and what deserves a pass. Often products can look super cute in photos but of poor quality in person, making that lower price tag not so appealing anymore. But such is not the case for the new Giambattista Valli for Macy's Impulse collection, which is exploding with all kinds of vibrant dress confections that are well-priced, well-tailored, and absolutely PERF for the holidays. At the recent launch event, City alum and glitterati fash-queen Olivia Palermo wore the Strapless Velvet Burnoout Tulip dress ($99) that she layered with a cropped, military-style black blazer, silver pendant, and the CUTEST have-to-have-them-now silver menswear oxfords. Not only is this look screaming relaxed glam, it looks totally comfortable and party-friendly, too. In fact, we're so taken with this capsule collection, we've picked out our MUST-HAVE faves…

Giambattista Valli is known for his ladylike silhouettes and feminine detailing, and he infused his signature styles into this collection, adding in big trends for fall like animal prints, bright color, and '60s shapes. These are dresses that can work by day with shrunken jackets or blazers, tights, and pointy flats as well as tipped-out with jeweled accessories and sparkly nails at night. Also? They're so fantastically priced, you can go ahead and splurge on some serious statement heels too.

This Giambattista Valli for Impulse Short Puff Sleeve Animal Print Metallic Jacquard Dress ($139) might be our favorite from the collection because it incorporates a shiny leopard pattern with a festive red hue. We think the model accessorizes it well with patent plats and COIFFED hair. But natural waves or a slick bun could work just as nicely too.

The Giambattista Valli for Impulse Strapless Organza Ruffled Tiered Belted Dress ($139) is CLASSIC Valli. This little ruffled number wants you to top it with a shrunken black blazer, a fun necklace, and heeled booties. It also wants you to twirl it around the dance floor all night.

If you're looking for a Little Black Dress to suit all your holiday partying needs, the Giambattista Valli for Impulse Sleeveless Soutache Petal Detail Dress ($139) is your dark knight in ruffled armor. Edged in black ribbons around the arms, neck, and drop-waist, the black petal frill at the bottom truly makes this LBD something special. All it needs is an exaggerated cat eye, vivid lips, and some seriously WOW heels in an unexpected hue. We suggest wearing this look under the mistletoe.
