Go bling or go home: Sparkly holiday accessories
There's no time like holiday time to show off your sparkly side. Impress at every festive fete you attend with our picks for stylish seasonal accessories that add a little something extra to whatever you're wearing.
Enhance any holiday outfit when you pair it with this eye-catching clutch covered in sparkly sequins (zara.com, $60). Whether you're rocking your favourite LBD or something a little bolder, this versatile purse in party-perfect size is a great way to give your look some added seasonal flair.
Trade boring black heels for a pair of these glittery, pointed, cap-toe pumps with an all-over festive sheen (jcrew.com, $308). Wear them to kick your at-work wardrobe up a notch during the holidays, or show them off at any number of seasonal soirees you attend this year. They'll pair effortlessly with everything from slim-fitting black trousers to solid sheath dresses.
Black and white bangle
Add some glamour to any holiday look by incorporating this elegant wrap bracelet, covered in black and white crystals, into your ensemble (swarovsky.com, $240). It may look delicate, but it packs a sparkly punch and would look as at-home with a cute cocktail frock as it would with a pencil skirt and blouse. It also makes a nice alternative to gold and silver when you feel like deviating from the traditional.
Gold skinny belt
Whether you're cinching an oversized sweater dress, adding interest to a neutral shift dress or pairing it with tailored trousers and a blouse, this skinny gold glitter belt is an easy way to bring some bling into your look for the holiday (madewell.com, $40). While we're partial to the gold, this sparkly accessory also comes in silver.
Crystal flower comb
Breathe new life into your blow-out if you don't have time to start fresh, or kick your up-do up a few notches by placing this pretty crystal comb among your strands (jcrew.com, $100). Sparkly glass stones cover a steel comb to create an accessory that goes with just about anything and easily enhances any hairstyle.
Peter Pan necklace
Peter Pan collars were one of fall's hottest trends, but you can take the trend into winter by adding a necklace inspired by the collar to your holiday look. This one, featuring glass beads that add subtle but get-noticed sparkle, would look lovely with either a high-neck dress or something strapless (topshop.com, $80).
Bonus: Sparkly nail polish
While not really an accessory, we couldn't resist adding a pretty, sparkly polish to our list. We're currently in love with Sephora by OPI Good Tidings We Bling (sephora.com, $12), a sparkly red and green glitter polish perfect for the holidays.
