When it comes to party dressing, it's best to not leave jewellery as an afterthought. The right necklace or earring can totally transform an outfit and is the perfect way to make that little black dress you've been wearing every Christmas feel a little more special. The 25 pieces we've found are so spectacular that it's worth basing your entire outfit around these alone.
In particular, we love Alighieri's chunky pearl pendant, Roxanne Assoulin's rainbow-coloured crystals, Thomas Sabo's star and moon gem earrings and the OTT rings from Gucci. Hair slides are also one of the best accessories for party season, and we love the statement slides from Gucci, Shrimps, Lelet NY and more. When it comes to trends, the general rule is the more crystals and sparkle, the better. The aim is to outshine your Christmas tree.
