I had a few more variations of this floating around my computer, so for those of us who continue to party through the 12 days of Christmas, here are a few more suggestions!
This first look is low-key dressy, with a hint of sparkly cardigan, some serious silver earrings, a wee silver bag and a hint of silver trimming the shoes. All the accessories come from the same general family without being too matchy matchy.
The 2nd ensemble features a wonderful ornamented cardigan, so I kept the earrings small, the cross-body bag a bit lacy, and the slingbacks (low-heeled, thank you!) have that touch of white that echoes the pearls.
Silver earrings – Oscar Figueroa, dress – Acne, sequined cardigan – Armani
Collezioni, silver cross-body bag – Elizabeth and James, suede and leather
pumps – Pierre Hardy, white beaded cardigan – Moschino Cheap and Chic,
pearl flower earrings - Bhavesh, embossed clutch bag – MeDusa,
slingbacks – Miu Miu
Sequins always make a major statement, so I didn't incorporate any more sparkle. The earrings move and dance, the bag has hints of silver hidden behind the weave, and the woven shoes (low-heeled again) echo the weave idea.
The last ensemble is a DEFINITE statement of evening! Feathers make anything black-tie worthy. The earrings sway and sparkle, the wee clutch bag is affordably gorgeous, and silver cap toes on your sensible pumps elevate the usual classic.
