Since I’ve already provided some economical options for dresses and shoes fit for holiday parties, today’s focus is on the finishing touches. Accessories are great for tying together an outfit and adding that special touch that will turn a boring LBD into a stunning ensemble.
Hair Accessory: Urban Outfitters Crystal Plumage Hair Clip, $24. I would throw my hair up in a messy bun and pull back a couple of strands with this sparkly feather clip.
Bright Baubles: Anthropologie Fresh Fruit Posts, $32. With a strapless dress, these deliciously vibrant earrings would make a refreshing statement.
Embellished Clutch: Forever 21 Rio Exotic Beaded Clutch, $24. This screams I-found-this-in-my-grandmother’s-attic with its embellished bead work and a cross-body chain.
Necklace Ice: Banana Republic Geometric Gem Necklace, $89. I love the architectural shape of these deep green gems that would add such a lovely glow.
Lacy Tights:Anthropologie Skein & Hook Tights, $18. Not only would these help keep you warm, but the delicate crochet pattern is exquisite.
Snake Cincher: TopShop Metal Snake Belt, $70. The subtle snake buckle on this thin gold belt is a quirky touch to a formal outfit.
