Holiday Jewels

Accessories are the best. By switching them up you’ll be sure to have something to wear to you 100+ holiday parties! It’s the easiest way to elevate an outfit. Ever notice how adding even one necklace can change your whole look? Instant glam can be achieved in a white tee and jeans, by adding a touch of sparkle and glitz.

A lot of what I write about for this blog focuses on building a classic wardrobe by investing in key pieces you can wear long term, but maintaining a distinct style is achieved with fashion forward or fun and quirky accessories. Jewelry is all about personality. By keeping your accessories, or what I like to call “third piece,” (post here) up to date you are sure to have something to wear to all your holiday soirees. Tis’ the season to be triple booked! 

Jewelry can be an instant mood-lifter. Colorful, sparkly, superfun. Have you heard the term “arm party?”  Try incorporating a few new pieces each season. It can be an inexpensive way to keep your wardrobe feeling fab and fresh.

Mix high and low, trendy and classic. Spice it up with the latest on-point styles, but invest every so often in exquisite everyday pieces that make you feel good. For example, Stella & Dot’s  Covet line or their custom engraveable options. 

Amid the whirlwind of the holidays, it can be easy to skim over the little details, but sometimes the most intriguing pieces and gifts, are the smallest. Outfit ornaments are the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Earrings, bracelets, and necklaces make this season’s best looks complete. Stella & Dot’s latest style options sure to please both the minimalists and maximalists among us. 

Ok -- let’s break it down! Stella & Dot holiday style.

HOLIDAY PARTY: Sparkly, Minimal, Trendy
The doorbell’s ringing non-stop, there is standing room only, and the battle of the playlists is about to begin. It’s party time! This leather and gold collar is all things minimal and chic, while the second layer of silver and gold will keep your look poppin’ all night long. This statement necklace can be worn 5 different ways (see Movie Night look below for full piece.) It can be taken down long, loose and laid back or clasped up, as seen here, for a party making entrance.

MOVIE NIGHT: Stacked, Mixed Metals, Statement
Laid back sophistication with an edgy rock ‘n’ roll attitude. The answer to “hmmm what should I wear tonight?” This look has you covered from the movies to the fancy-shmancy cocktail party to the un-schmancy dive bar afterwards. This combo can elevate any plain tee or graphic top. Don’t be afraid to stack it up, arms and neck. I love the Electra statement necklace for it’s vintage silver plating and gradient jet black to clear sparkle. Add in a leather jacket to compliment your bold statement of metal mixology.

GIRLS NIGHT: Dangle, Layered, Elevated
If you add one new piece of jewelry to your wardrobe this winter, it should be a lariat necklace. This style is awesome for layering and looks good with everything. Let is dangle against a low cut slip dress or double it up on against a silky soft fabric. You can wrap this piece so many ways, or even tie it in a knot! I love the around-the-neck chocker-option. Tie it in your hair, or use it was a belt with a flowy dress. Here it's paired with a few dainty necklaces, and a luxe leopard clutch. This look is perfect for a weekend gift swap with girlfriends (including your very dearest friend – wine.)

NYE GALA: Celestial, Choker, Embroidered
It’s in the written in the stars. Smokey sparkle and gunmetal details with a chic bowed ribbon are all you need for a magical start to the New Year. The embroidered Emme choker can be worn as a lariat, wrapped around your wrist as a bracelet, or even swept up in your hair as a headband. This quick-change piece is perfect for a flurry of holiday festivities. Layer in hints of sparkle with the delicate celestial choker, and dreamy Luna crescent. The starlet in you will be black tie ready for cheers and (and maybe a midnight kiss) this NYE.

AT HOME: Delicate, Luxe, Layered
Snuggle up cozy and chic with your favorite holiday movie (Netflicks and chill anyone?) for a fabulous night in. Whether you are a robe and pjs, sweatshirt and tee or just diamonds kind of girl, this is a minimal everyday look that is luxe and timeless. Delicate styles have been huge lately. There is something inherently elegant about simple statements, like Stella and Dot’s Covet line. Minimal with multiple diamond options that are distinctly romantic and perfect for layering on meaningful mantras or motivating reminders. Simple shapes, engraveables and charms are anything but a snooze-fest.  So lounge in your everyday favorites that are sure to please, from the warm confines of you home to the day-to-day out and about.

The Hair Tie Bracelet

Raise your wrist if you are part of the hair tie club!

Whenever I leave the house, the last thing I (used) put on was a black hair tie around my wrist. As a habit, my long hair usually ends up in a ballerina bun on top of my head to keep it out of the way and under control. No matter what the occasion, the option to change up my hairstyle at the flick of a wrist has always been a part of my outfit.

The issue with elastic hair ties is they don’t look nice on your wrist, especially when you are dressed up for a night out. I had taken to stuffing them in my purse and car council. The search for a spare rubber band can turn ugly (don’t touch that bound up newspaper unless you want to witness rubber eating a healthy chunk of hair.) I don’t know about you, but I don’t always have my car or bag with me (although they do make spacious hair tie containers.)

You can imagine my utter excitement when my new friend and Arm Candy designer Cay introduced me to her minimalist cuff bracelet that also doubles as a hair tie holder. The fusion of fashion and function in one little genius piece makes the organizer in me so happy. It’s a simple stylish solution to the convenience of always wanting a hair tie on hand. (A place for everything and everything in its place, as my mom likes to say!)

Since discovering this clever styling trick, I have put my Arm Candy cuff to use by matching complementing hair ties to my outfits. (See this post, this post and this post.)

You can layer them up, like I did in today’s post, with a playful myriad of colors, or wear with a single hair band. The real beauty of this piece is that it looks just as chic on it’s own or when sporting a hair tie.

Show off your team spirit, add some glitz, or blend cheery prints. You can use any hair tie you like, (not just the one it comes with) which is what makes this accessory so brilliant. 

For this look, I wanted to play off the preppy light pink tennis skirt, (hence the backdrop. No I have never played tennis before, so feel free to make fun of my poor form.) The little skirt pleats remind me of school days, so I paired it with a cashmere varsity style sweater. (A simple cashmere sweater is a closet must-have in my book.) These Zara shoes have become my most favorite this past season, but I will probably be swapping them out soon for these zipped ankle boots (also from Zara) that I’ve been saving my pennies up for.

Arm Candy bracelets are available here in silver or gold. They are adjustable to fit and can hold one or multiple bands. You can also request customized engraving. (Not to mention they make great gifts! Check that of the Christmas list for you OCD types like me already thinking ahead.)

Collegiate to classy, this accessory brings simple elegance to an otherwise ordinary accessory. Shop for yours here and never worry about needing to borrow a hair tie again.
