Grab the girl gang – it’s time to go out-out. Whether you’re dancing till dawn or heading home before midnight (just call us Cinderella), it’s time to pull out all the stops for Christmas party season with the top five trends to try for every kinda festive bash.
1. Cosmic Cool
It’s written in the stars – celestial jewellery is shining bright for AW17 and big-deal bashes are the perfect place to try the trend. Go nocturnal with a twilight-toned top, dazzled up with a cosmic cluster of brooches for dance floor-ready sparkle. Keep the rest of your look equally ethereal with statement star earrings and layered chains for stellar styling.
2. Vintage Luxe
Vintage glam is always a good idea – especially when Christmas parties are concerned. Button up in a babein’ blouse and mini skirt combo, and get those straight-from-granny’s-attic vibes going with a mega mix of brooches, swishy drop earrings and all the cocktail rings. When it comes to the clutch bag, only black velvet will do.
3. Party Sparkle
Newsflash: prom queen pretty is in for party season. Once you’ve picked the dress (tulle + sequins = always a winner), follow the call of the disco ball with statement jewellery that *so* deserves a second look. Think dazzling drop earrings with 3D florals, plus a pretty necklace and a cute cocktail ring in tonal colours. Need some arm candy? A rose-gold bracelet is your perfect plus-one.
4. Victoriana Vibes
If your inner emo needs some airtime, then Victoriana styling is your ticket to grown-up glam for a Christmas party like no other. Get on the goth-girl hype in black lace everything, and bring the drama with a chunky black choker, embellished with glistening gold stars. Layer on an heirloom-style necklace, before dazzling up your digits with cocktail rings drenched in jewels.
5. 80s Glam
It’s all about the 80s right now (thanks Stranger Things) so bring the trend to your BNO with super-sized jewels with made-you-stare sparkles. Go straight to the disco with mirror ball metallics, upping the glam factor with a statement choker and matching earrings with poppin’ pink gems. Clash it real good with an XXL cuff bracelet plus retro rings in silver and gold.
