A Giant Guide to the Best Holiday Accessories.

A Giant Guide to the Best Holiday Accessories.

Dressing for holiday parties is my favorite as I can be my most sparkly, extra self. Accessories are my favorite way to do that. Sure, sparkle and sequins and feathers are amazing on clothes, but they can be so memorable. Accessories are a lot more versatile.

A Giant Guide to the Best Holiday Accessories

I am giving you a lot of options here but truly, you don’t need much. All you need is a few special signature items to take you through the season in style. I’ve rounded up the best jewelry (and a few hair accessories), my favorite special occasion shoes, and the prettiest little clutches and bags. I’ve also been sure to include some affordable options within each collage – those are all flagged as such! Sparkle on, friends… tis the season!

The Best Holiday Accessories

Best Holiday Jewelry

Let’s start with jewelry… my favorite! On the higher end, you can’t beat Dorsey for basics like a tennis necklace and vintage inspired earrings. And Jennifer Behr’s jewels are pricy but exquisite. Costume jewelry you will have and own forever. For something more affordable, BaubleBar is doing a phenomenal job this year, their Party Wear page is packed with beautiful bejeweled goodness, for mostly under $50. Zara has some great stuff too.

Women’s Holiday Shoes

This roundup makes me so happy as it is just SO fun and festive. I will be wearing my Sarah Flint shoes (featured here) quite a bit, but I also love a gold sandal (I laugh as four pairs below are gold…). Any of the below are fabulous but I have and love these. For such a tall shoe, they’re incredibly comfortable! Also: I found them after scheduling this post, but these Amazon platforms are beautiful – they remind me a lot of my black Stuart Weitzman pair!

And on the more affordable front, wanted to flag a few pairs!

All three of these pairs are from Target and so well priced!

Best Holiday Bags!

Feathers and crystals and rhinestones and pearls and glitter and GREEN. There are so many beautiful bags… in particular, I especially love this serpent bag (I have it and LOVE) and the chartreuse feathers (crazy in the best way!).

    LOVE everything, Grace! This is the most delicious eye candy. I want all the sparkle! I have recently become obsessed with Lauren Hope jewelry and nearly bought myself a tiara.

    I really love all the cocktail rings and I also love the one you designed as a present to yourself! I wear large rings everyday, but they are just silver. I like the idea of a flashy colored stone for special occasions and parties.

    Those chunky cocktail rings are SO GOOD. I need to incorporate more color into my jewelry collection and your picks have my mind whirling (in the best way!)

    Would you mind updating the jewel drops link? I think itโ€™s mislinked

    I can’t see any cocktail rings in this post at all? Wondering what I am missing!
