Finish off 2014 with an epic statement and take a radically new approach to your NYE outfit with our NYE Style Guide Edition: All Eyes on Statement Sparklers.
If this year’s craze for colossally sized sparklers are more of a seizure induced fashion dilemma than your favorite party statement piece, opt for a gracefully designed scroll necklace like the one below and pair with similarly styled accents like the heels below. Scrolls, filigree and flourish motifs add a brush of regal elegance without looking like a Baroque hangover. Play it safe and stay away from garish garland necklaces and blaring baubled accents because this Carolyn Pollack Filigree Statement Necklace is an ageless, elegant and eye-catching piece, perfect for any neckline. Play dress up to your cozy long sleeve tops or put the finishing touches on your favorite evening gown – either way this is an instant style enhancer that’s also an easy way to mix up your metals.
Top off your glass a bubbly and ‘2014’ goggles with a Midas touch and opt for this bonified jewel box basic, the Slip-Thru Cone Lariat Necklace. Simple and sophisticated, lariats like this one lengthen your look and add a contemporary finesse to your ensemble. If you’re looking to keep understated elegance up to par, pair with our Drop Earrings with Swarovski Crystal (below) which look darling with a sleek, combed back coif. Going all out that night? Cristina Sabatini’s Happy Gem Mother-of-Pearl Earrings add an artful flair with a perfectly balanced diet of bling and polish. A statement lip and tasseled make the finishing touches. Lastly, fur or faux fur accents add a note of textural opulence to these flawlessly styled jewelry sets.
The Countdown Clunker
Steal the scene with a flawlessly styled cocktail clunker. Statement rings are an easy way to build up your statement jewelry collection. A light blue-hued crystalline mirage sparkles against a speckled frame set in intricately crafted sterling silver. Given that winter whites have become the new black, light blue is an easy way to play up cream, bone, porcelain and other light-toned separates. But if you’re looking for a killer Red Carpet-worthy statement match with pastels or try with bold pinks or stormy greys. We tried this with a Mongolian poof bag that makes for a fitting complement the shape and overall color.
