Worried about blending with the crowd and not getting noticed at this seasons holiday parties? Don’t give it a second thought, because just with a touch of class and some bling to go with you could look absolutely gorgeous at the next Christmas bash with your girlfriends, or your office Easter celebration
Standing out this holiday season isn’t as hard as it may seem – because, you want to know a secret? It is all about the sparkle. The ornaments and the glitter isn’t just for the Christmas tree and the Easter eggs ladies, the holidays are the best excuse to go just a tad overboard. Here we go with a few tips on how to start you on the road to oomph!
First off, the jewelry has to complement the dress, which implies that the dress really shouldn’t outshine it; pair one sparkling something with other neutrals. The end result is festive, but retains its vogue.
The jewelry you throw on doesn’t need to be 12 carat diamonds and all gold, instead go with your fashion jewelry pieces – shiny bangles, large chandelier earrings that draw focus to your blouse or an appropriately colored or shaped festive pendant to put you and everyone around you in the holiday spirit.
Reds and greens never go out of fashion during the festivities, be it as an adorable reindeer metal charm bracelet around your wrist, mistletoe brooches or statement jewelry studded with emeralds and rubies. If you’re the kind that loves being a part of the holidays through and through, then any combination of these two colors – hoops, danglers, necklaces – can never go wrong.
Don’t worry though, if this isn’t your style. If these are not your shades, then you can stick to just the sparkle bit. Silver and gold are just as celebratory, so throw on a chunky silver pedant, or stack those silver and gold chains you save for a night out on the town and you’re good to go. If you’re the kind of person who is ready to go an extra mile, you could even wear a metallic blouse!
If the party happens to be a casual dinner out, all you need is a bold statement necklace that starkly complements your outfit with maybe a few sterling silver bangles.
Office holiday party is it? You have to dig out those formals? Then you have to go big with that statement jewelry too. Vintage danglers or chandeliers go best with a formal dress, but if you chose to wear pants and a cardigan then I’d recommend a necklace to complement the décolletage. Balance the neutral colors that formals call for with vibrant stoned jewelry; sure to draw your colleagues and superiors attention!
Finally got some free time to party with your friends? This is your moment, don’t hold back any of your instincts and bring out the big guns ladies! Spice up that sequenced blouse with new age designer danglers and an abstract form bracelet – leave the neck bare as the chances are your dress already has a lot of sparkle and the jewel will only get lost.
It is widely believed that every year the fashion trends change, but rest assured the holiday sparkle is timeless.
