Jewels light up that LBD

Jewels light up that LBD

The holiday season is here and budget-savvy fashionistas may be taking out that "little black dress" for a few parties. Those who are uneasy about wearing the same frock as last year don't have to worry – as long as you jazz up your look with earrings, necklaces or bracelets.

Accessories are key, and there are a number of jewelry trends you can take advantage of to wear with that LBD. For instance, vintage-inspired jewels are always in, and these rare statement pieces are the perfect addition to any look this holiday season. Take out those extravagant chandelier earrings or few cuff bracelets that are complete with unique designs.

Another trend is mixed metals – and the more, the merrier. Stack on the bronze, silver and gold bracelets or layered necklaces to get the desired effect.

Don't forget to rock color when it comes to your jewelry. Just because your dress is black, doesn't mean you can't mix it up with bright, bold hues. Opt for gemstone jewelry that makes a statement, and utilize the hot colors of winter including jade, tangerine tango and deep blue.
