Don't Just Attend a Party—Be the Party With These 6 Accessories

Accessories are magical. Think about it—what else has the power to totally transform an outfit? If you’ve got a fancy frock that’s in need of dressing down, a simple switch of your shoes will do the trick. Find yourself going out at the last minute and all that’s clean is a pair of jeans and a white shirt? Add a pair of statement earrings and classic black court shoes and you’re off! We share the same sentiment when it comes to party dressing.

Accessories should be given your utmost consideration come the festive period. Last year’s black dress? Consider it overhauled with this season’s new It bag or shoe. As such, we set out to find the prettiest accessories that will dominate party season. From hair adornments to the new take on the statement necklace, keep scrolling to see our favourite party accessories for 2019.

HAIR TWISTS

Last year saw the meteoric rise of the hair slide, but for 2019, it’s all about small hair twists that you can place throughout your tresses. Consider weaving them through loose hair or a messy bun. 

VELVET PLATFORMS

Alexa Chung’s go-to shoe is back on the accessory agenda this season. While there are many iterations to choose from, none is as glamorous as those with velvet textures. 

PEARL HEADBANDS

Headbands are still reigning supreme on the accessory scene, with pearls proving to be the latest take on the trend. Just think how gorgeous they’ll look set against your locks. 

JEWEL CHAINS

Chain necklaces made a return on the A/W 19 runways. For party season, consider a style that’s been adorned with a single gemstone for a cool-girl take on bling. 

GLITTER BAGS

Calling all magpies. This is one handbag trend you won’t want to miss. BY FAR has kick-started a glitter movement with its sparkling, '90s-style shoulder bag, and it hasn’t taken long for the high street to follow suit. 

ANYTHING FEATHERED

The quintessential party texture, feathers will never fail to make you feel fancy. Take the less-is-more approach by adding feathered shoes to a tailored suit or a bag to a simple satin midi dress. 

Now, let's set about finding the perfect party dress to go with your gorgeous accessories.
