We’re in the midst of holiday party season, and if there was ever a time to wear something sparkly or shiny, this is it. Just don’t overdo it: A hint of rhinestones or metallics will do the trick.
If you own vintage rhinestone pins or earrings, just hook one onto a bobby pin in backswept hair, and you have instant DIY-style chic.
And retailers offer plenty of affordable yet stylish options.
The Kohl’s Apt. 9 collection includes sleek wristlets (top photo, $32) in plum and pewter. Perfect for carrying gloss and a few other essentials for an evening of parties.
Accent a little black dress with a beaded trim wrap from Banana Republic for $79.50 (middle photo).
Versatile stretch belts from Loft come accented with jewels ($39.50) or chiffon floral appliques ($34.50, both shown in bottom photo).
