I said it before and I will say it again: good accessories are a game changer, especially when it comes to Holiday Party looks! A pair of statement earrings or a rhinestone headband can add just the right amount of sparkle to your all black ensemble, a pretty evening bag will give your look that perfect formal feel, and a pair of patterned tights can transform a classic outfit into something a bit more playful and fun. So, without further ado, here are some of my favorite accents to wear during Holiday season!
One of my favorite pairing of all time, I love wearing crystal hair pins with statement earrings! This combo never fails to make a statement, takes exactly zero time to execute (I always fall back on this pairing when I’m short on time), and can transform any outfit into something totally evening appropriate. Seriously! I wear these earrings and pins with jeans and sweaters and the end result always looks incredibly glam!
A variation of the earrings/pins look, statement headbands and dramatic cascading earrings are my other top choice when it comes to evening accents. Great with cocktail dresses and cozy sweaters, what’s great about this combo is the fact that it works with really formal outfits and somewhat casual ones! Personal tip, try it with a cute silk blouse and jeans! You’ll love it!
There is a special kind of magic about rhinestone belts, isn’t there? I love wearing them with structured black blazers (especially of the oversized variety) but also with jeans and fitted sweaters. Clutches are my other obsession. A big fan of evening bags in general, lately I am super into these transparent structured clutches. Reason? Well, they work with everything! Honestly, great with dresses of any color, if you want to push the envelope a bit, try wearing it with a blouse, jeans and statement earrings for a more casual approach.
Patterned tights? Yeah, super into them at the moment! By the way, these Gucci babies were surprisingly affordable (just under $100), but on a more general note, if you love all black looks and want to add a fun, playful element to your outfits, patterned tights are a way to go. Great with pretty much any black dress and evening shoe style, not only are they super chic and elegant, but also very practical. Love that!
