The holiday season can be an enchanting yet stressful time. With the multiple year-end deadlines and after-work parties, it is merely impossible to stay fabulous from 9am to ..well dawn. For those who know me, I’m a big fan of accessories, and no outfit is complete with a pair of fantastic earrings. To quickly transform your fabulous day frock into an evening sensation, I have one word – ACCESSORIZE. Nothing changes an outfit more than adding a pair of funky patterned lace stockings, patent pumps, or a striking necklace. Especially for the latter, a beautiful necklace can spice up any boring work outfit. Recently, I attended a party where I had a shocking five minutes to get dressed for. I put on a black ruffle silk top with my favourite pair of Citizens jeans. To add to the spirit of the party, I accessorized with a bright glistening silver knotted necklace. I was amazed to hear the multitude of compliments received from other girls in the room. If we don’t know this already, the best compliments come from random female admirers as they can be harsh critics!
Here are some of my favourite festive picks this season:
Beautiful on any outfit. Roxanne Assoulin for Lee Angel
Vancouver designer. Lemon Park Designs Rocks Collection
Stunning glitterati piece by Vera Wang.
Whether it is chunky hooked with pearls and jewels, or elegant and loopy strands, your necklace will not only be the centerpiece of your outfit, but any conversation as well.
