The holiday season gives you many opportunities to dress up. Holiday parties abound, and no doubt you will be attended a couple of special celebrations. Get into the festivities by accessorizing your outfit with stylish Christmas jewelry. Here are some ideas that you can consider.
When it comes to jewelry, you do not want to overdo it. For a formal setting where elegance is the theme, wearing just a couple of special pieces is usually enough to enhance any outfit. The simplest may be a brooch with a holiday theme. This can be in the motif of a holiday wreath made from green stones for the wreath accented by a ribbon made from red stones. Or, consider a silver brooch in the shape of a reindeer, studded with white cubic zirconia stones.
You have countless choices for holiday themed earrings. For a bit of whimsical style, you can wear earrings that look like tiny ornaments or candy canes that are studded with rhinestones. Avoid cheap looking earrings or motifs that are too juvenile. Dangly earrings that look like delicate snow flakes can be a perfect complement to a cocktail dress.
When you are choosing holiday jewelry to wear, make sure that the pieces you choose do not clash with each other. The pieces should coordinate well with your outfits. Holiday colors are usually green, red, silver and gold. If you wear a black cocktail dress, Christmas jewelry in those colors would go well.
For less formal occasions, you can wear more jewelry that is a little more whimsical. What about a bracelet with charms in Christmas themes? The charms can be a bell, a wreath, a reindeer, a gingerbread man, or others. If you want to so something fun, work in the theme of the twelves days of Christmas and add one charm to your bracelet everyday for 12 days. This will sure to be a good conversational piece.
If you are wearing a dress with a high neckline, accessorize with a long necklace from fantasyard. There are fun and delicate necklaces that resemble a string of colorful, tiny Christmas lights. Some bulbs actually light up, and the tiny light bulbs are smaller than the string lights that you put up on your tree. Of course, this would not be appropriate for any formal occasion. This is more for a casual holiday party in the office or with friends, or just to wear when you are out and about running errands.
If you are just looking for fun jewelry to wear, you do not have to spend too much on it. After all, you only wear it for a few weeks in a year. These jewelry are stashed away for the rest of the year. If you can afford it, you can get a fine piece of holiday jewelry to wear for those formal holiday parties. There is really no right or wrong when it comes to establishing your own style. Just remember to keep it simple and not to let the jewelry overwhelm your outfit.
