Holiday Accessories

There are so many fun things about the holiday season: food, fêtes, and family. But if you’re a fashion lover, the holidays also mean a great excuse to go all out in exciting, festive outfits. If you’re looking to update your party clothes with a few new accessories, here are some of 2018’s biggest trends.

Wings away!
Last year, tassels were the major trend, showing up everywhere from earrings to necklaces. This year’s trendy accessory is a bit daintier. Wings are everywhere right now, from pretty pendants on necklaces to graceful statement earrings. 

Hot hoops 
Hoops earrings have been a tad hard to find since around 2004, but this year, they are back! And if you’re a hoop lover, you’re in luck because every size is on-trend, and no hoop is too big right now. So whether you prefer a small, chunky gold hoop or a doorknob-sized thin silver hoop, go for it! Every option is a great one. 

Pouch purse
Evening handbags can be a bit of a pain. They’re either tiny little clutches that need to be carried in your palm all night or cumbersome, long-chained bags that look awkward over your shoulder when you’re wearing an evening gown. Enter the pouch purse. These tiny, glamorous bags come in fancy fabrics, like silk and velvet, so they’ll look great at your holiday party. But the best thing about a pouch purse is its convenient wrist strap, which makes it easier to carry and keep up with than other evening options.  
 
Rhinestone revival
Rhinestone jewelry is common at holiday parties. But if you really want to stand out, try some rhinestone footwear! Some of the season’s most beautiful statement shoes are ankle boots covered in sparkles and high heels with rhinestone accessories. If you’re going straight from the office to your holiday party in a little black dress, throw on a pair of these dazzling shoes to make your party look pop. 

All in for over-the-knee
If rhinestone boots aren’t your thing, why not step up your boot game with a pair of over-the-knee boots? These boots are a winter miniskirt’s best friend, since they’ll allow you to shorten your hemline while still keeping your legs toasty warm. They can even make a pair of dressy velvet shorts look winter-ready. Just add a sweater and some tights for a seasonally appropriate look.

You don’t have to completely overhaul your closet to deck the halls. Adding a new accessory to a tried-and-true party look can completely transform your holiday outfit.
