How To Accessorize Your Red Dress

Now that you know what type of jewelry to pair with your LBD (Little Black Dress) and your LWD (Little White Dress), it’s time to take a look at how to accessorize that red dress that has been hanging in your closet for way too long.

1) Go For Monochrome

Ruby reds and pretty pinks will bring just the right amount of color contrast to your red dress. If the top of your dress shows a little skin, don’t be afraid to highlight your neckline with a ruby pendant.

2) Classic Black 

Black is a classic color that will never go out of style, and stands out against red. For a more dramatic look, pair your red dress with an onyx drop pendant.

3) Cool White

It’s still summer and that means white is hot, hot, hot! Throw on a white statement bracelet to lighten up your red dress look and tune in to those summer vibes.

4) Glitzy Gold or Sleek Silver 

Whether you’re a golden diva or a silver gal, both work well with a red dress. Add some glamour to your red dress outfit with a pair of yellow gold chandelier earrings, or try an Art Nouveau ring in sterling silver.

Holiday Jewelry Trend: Bling Out in Black and Gold

The holiday season is full of jewelry fashion conundrums.

With office parties, ornament exchanges, kids’ concerts, family functions and all manner of caroling and cocktailing – it’s no wonder someone thought it best to spike the eggnog (well played).

But I’ve got a simple jewelry solution for every festive occasion that’s both on trend and traditional: bling out in black and gold.

I spotted Katy Perry in the trend at the Grammy Nomination Party just last night.

Fashion darling, Christian Siriano, just launched his own vintage-inspired bauble line, Regal Estate, that’s littered with black and gold beauties – all for $29.95 on his burgeoning fashion site sendthetrend.com.


 

The always fab, JewelClub, has a ton of black and gold styles in their sample sale stash for a steal.


And my favorite luxury location, Luxist, highlighted the trend recently with these more expensive interpretations.


My thought this year is to get two or three classic black and gold styles and rotate them. Pile ’em on for the big events or add just a sprinkle of sparkle for the daytime dalliances. And the looks will keep on giving year-round – unlike some trends that expire as soon as they make a splash (bug jewelry, anyone?)

So the moral of the story? Keep Santa season simple this year without skimping on style. And keep the eggnog close.
