Your social calendar is probably filled to the brim with holiday parties this month, including everything from your office’s Christmas party to your best friend’s New Year’s Eve blowout. If you’re shopping around for holiday party garb and accessories, forget the reindeer sweaters and candy cane earrings – the holidays are a time for glitz and glamor!
Holiday parties provide an excellent opportunity for you to play around with your wardrobe and dress in a way that matches the festive mood and décor. The more sparkle and glimmer your accessories have, the better, so you can light up every holiday party you attend.
Here are some essential pieces of jewelry that will jazz up your outfits this holiday party season. Like a great bag or shoes, jewelry is versatile. Even if you have just one key piece, you can wear it with several different types of outfits to achieve a fresh, new look each time and maximize your investment.
Colorful gemstone jewelry is festive and fun to wear. It reflects light in a beautiful way and can be the perfect complement to a mono-colored ensemble. For example, blue sapphire jewelry can look stunning against a winter white dress.
A bold statement necklace can transform your appearance and give your outfits an edge, even elevating the look of something as simple as a cable sweater. The key is to pair bold pieces of jewelry like statement necklaces with simple outfits, so you look like a fashionista and not a fashion victim. If you wear a statement necklace, avoid wearing earrings so that your necklace has the opportunity to shine.
Mix and Match
Revamp your holiday party look by mixing and matching different textures, metals, and styles. For example, you could wear a pearl necklace, a gold strand necklace, and a gemstone necklace at the same time. You could also mix gold with a silver colored metal, as the mixed metal look is hot right now. This trend is particularly appropriate for the holiday season, which is known for its metallic decorations.
Pair sparkly, look-at-me dangle earrings with an up-do so everybody can see your bling and your hair doesn’t get tangled in your earrings. Elegant dangle earrings look great with an off-the-shoulder dress.
Oversized Stud Earrings
Stud earrings have always been go-to accessories because of their simple yet sophisticated look. Feminine, oversized stud earrings conjure up images of Old Hollywood. When you wear oversized stud earrings, it’s important to remember that less is more – you don’t need to wear any other jewelry to make a powerful fashion statement.
