With the fading of summer's sun comes the dawning realisation of all those festive parties to come, from family get-togethers to the infamous work Christmas party and New Year's Eve celebrations. While the idea of outfit planning now might feel a bit premature, it will ensure you avoid any panic buys and allow you to make your wardrobe work harder, particularly by making some cunning jewellery choices.
The events themselves might be completely different but you really don't need to buy a new outfit for each one. Our advice is to find a Little Black Dress you love, and then to use a selection of jewellery pieces to create unique looks that will suit each occasion.
Work Christmas parties are the perfect excuse to introduce some statement-making sparkle into your look, and Swarovski's Diana Necklace can be relied upon to provide that. Christmas Day with the family, however, is when we'll want to add a bit of colour to the mix, so it's got to be a Stardust Bracelet filled with sparkling red crystals. Come New Year's Eve it's time to go for all-out glam and what better way to achieve that than with a sleek up-do and Swarovski's Diapason Earrings?
