‘Tis the season to be merry and bright…as in completely decked out head-to-toe for all those fabulous holiday and Mardi Gras parties!
Smoky quartz, citrine, sapphire, ruby, emerald, garnet — anything from this rich, bold color palette will make a dynamic, here-I-am statement for cocktail parties and formal soirées.
This season is all about the details, especially fringe, lace trim, sequins, metallics, and of course, lots of bling with rhinestones and crystals on everything from clutches to shoes to jewelry. And for a hint of sass, dresses embellished with nude underlay is a stunning standout feature.
For the more casual soirée, embrace the layers with jackets, ponchos, kimono cover-ups and scarves. Add a sensational top, a pair of skinny jeans or black straight-leg pants and booties, and you’re ready to show up and show off.
