Pretty Little Things: Pre-holiday bling
Welcome to Pretty Little Things, where each week we bring you our picks for the prettiest little things online. If we love it, you’ll be the first to know! This week, we’re showing off our sparkly side with some picks for beautiful pre-holiday accessories – because it’s never too early to start shopping for the holiday season!
Say yes to sparkle
Is there any better time than around the holidays to show off a little bling? I don't think so, which is why I take every opportunity during the festive season to show off my sparkly side. Cocktail rings, statement necklaces, dangly earrings and pretty pins all have one thing in common: glitter and seasonal sparkle. Read on for my top picks for must-have holiday accessories.
Cocktail rings are one of my go-to pieces of jewelry, especially if I feel like going glam – but not over the top with too many accessories. This rhinestone-covered ring (Vince Camuto, $48) recently caught my attention for both its eye-catching shape and its affordable price point. The polished, gray metal is inset with a series of sparkly faceted gemstones giving it a particularly festive feel.
I immediately thought of Christmas presents when I spied these cute stud earrings in the shape of bows (Juicy Couture, $48), making them perfect for accessorizing holiday outfits. The pretty pair is covered in rhinestones and set in silver giving them some added glitz. While I normally go for bigger, bolder ear candy, these seasonal studs have a timeless, elegant appeal I love.
Any outfit can benefit from a little bling around the holidays, and this Kenneth Jay Lane stretch crystal cuff fits the bill (my-wardrobe.com, $109). The glittering holiday accessory offers an easy way to spice up your look and slip into something a little more sparkly. The substantial bracelet is covered in crystals, making it a fun and festive addition to your jewelry collection.
Pearl bauble necklace
Just try not to think of fluffy white snowballs when you take a look at this delicate, sophisticated necklace (Kate Spade, $295) featuring a myriad of glass pearls with crystal detail. The pop of faux pearls and sparkle from the crystals makes this dazzling bib necklace the ideal statement piece for a season of stylishly good cheer.
It may not be a piece of jewelry, but this gorgeous color block satin and glitter clutch just screams holiday to me (asos.com, $63). The art deco design features a splash of gold tone glitter on the front surrounded by blocks of neutral black, cream and taupe. The gold chain strap completes this holiday-ready look.
