‘Tis the season of festivities, from the holidays to New Year’s celebrations! From the company Christmas cocktail party to the swanky gala ringing in the new decade, you will want to be prepared with the appropriate ensemble for every occasion—including your jewelry and accessories!

This time of year is perfect for donning your most glitzy dresses and outfits, which means it is also a great time to break out your sparkling statement jewelry. After all, chic and glamorous pieces are the perfect complement to festive ensembles.

Between holiday shopping, commitments, and end-of-year madness, however, getting your holiday fashion just right can be stressful. Luckily, we have some simple tips and holiday jewelry recommendations to keep you looking chic and festive for every event from now through the New Year.

Holiday Party Style Tips

Holiday Party JewelryWhen it comes to choosing your holiday party jewelry, one of the most important rules is not to over-accessorize. While it is more than acceptable to wear your favorite glamorous jewelry sets and pieces, we recommend doing so in a way that will not appear gaudy or detract from your outfit.

One of the best ways to do this is to pick one statement piece, like a bold necklace or pair of earrings, to enhance the rest of your look. You can then work the rest of your jewelry and accessories around the statement piece.

Now, the next question is, how to decide what kind of jewelry to wear. A few things to consider:

  • How formal is the party? Will a dressy business casual with a little added sparkle do the trick, or does it call for a cocktail dress or even a formal gown? What is the neckline of your top or dress? This will determine if you want to wear a statement necklace with a more understated pair of earrings or stick to a bold, dramatic pair of earrings only.
  • What is your color palette? Is your dress solid or multi-colored? If it is multi-colored, you may want to stick to jewelry with neutral metals or stones or pull just one of the colors from your outfit.
  • When and where is the party? Is it an early or late evening affair? The type of venue will also play into how fancy of a vibe you want to go for.

All of these will affect your entire look, including your party jewelry. Next, here are some trends we’re loving right now:

Statement Earrings

Because when all else fails, a fabulous pair of earrings can save any day (or ensemble). Holiday parties, however, are a great excuse to wear those dramatic statement earrings.

Wear your hair up in a loose chignon or ponytail (you know, the kind that looks effortless but us insiders know took you hours to get right). Then, add a pair of bold earrings, like shoulder dusters or chandeliers. This will draw attention to your face, helping you show off those gorgeous eyes and pearly whites!

Get Stackin’

More is more with your bracelets and rings when it comes to holiday fashion. Stack some chunky cuffs or bangles and rings that match the style of your chosen earrings or necklace. Pair a bold statement ring with a few midi or nail rings for a little sparkle with every gesture.

Don’t be afraid to mix metals, just make sure they match both the colors and aesthetic of your statement or anchor piece. Get more tips about how to keep it chic while mixing metal jewelry.
