Stockpile on candy canes and get ready rock out in stretchy knits and other figure-fortifying garments because the holidays are fast approaching. Aside from endless eggnog and blinging out every nook and cranny with holiday lights, this season is the best time of the year to deck out your look in baubles and karats. But for those of us who want to keep it simple and sophisticated, timeless pieces like pearls and gold or silver pendant necklaces are not only office appropriate but holiday party hits. Check out some of our seamlessly- styled looks to help keep your bling in check.
A strand of pearls , whether it be achromatic (black, white, grey), metallic or pastel, is an easy way to add polish to your boardroom casuals, or just about any party look. The first look gives those slate-hued pearls a city-savvy twist with lush fall earth tones, topped with an ultra-posh poncho. This is also a great silhouette to pull off on Turkey Day since the sweater dress is loose and stretchy and leggings are a super-comfy combo with bulky tops. The second look is perfect for any office holiday party. Dark reds like wine and bourdeaux combined with silver are a chic way to tip your hat to holiday colors while a leather jacket adds an edge. But don’t forget to add a simple pearl strand to keep your look in tow.
Gold pendants and necklaces are an instant glam enhancer that fit every outfit and work as a holiday savvy accent. Textured pendants like the one above offer a slick, modern accent and an added sparkle to last you through the night. The first look is great for crazy days in the corporate world that turn into dressy cocktail laden dinner events. And the gold pendant not only adds a luxe accent to the neckline but breaks up the graphic houndstooth jacket and confetti-pink wrap dress. The second look is a weekend-chic winner, as it professes all the things we love about cozy-casual glamor. Striped tops are a great way to dress up dark denims, and the camel coat (a fashion must this fall) adds a modern tailored twist. The pendant and ring add a feminine glamor to the playful red scarf and hat.
