Holiday Accessories that Make a Statement

December 9, 2019

By:

Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected, purchased and worn by yours truly!

It’s that time of year where holiday party invites starting to fill your mailbox. Whether it’s work, friends, organizations, or family- they all are hoping to see your jolly face to toast to the new year or celebrate the season together.

If you’re anything like me, as soon as you RSVP yes, the immediate question is “but what am I going to wear?” Keep things simple with your outfit, opting for an LBD or an LBJ [little black jumpsuit] rather than a statement maker. Instead, let your accessories be the shining star of your look! This way you can either rock an existing dress you have in your closet, or buy a new one with the intentions of being able to wear it over and over! Today’s post is featuring what I consider to be some of the must-have accessories that make a statement this holiday season. Shoes, jewelry, and bags – I’m showing you my top picks from Macy’s, just in time for the soirees to begin!

Whether you’re looking for a whole new outfit or just wanting to add a bit of extra sparkle into your accessories, now’s the time to do so with Macy’s Friends & Family Sale. From now until December 9th, use code FRIEND to save up to 30% off so many of the brands we know and love. With so many ways to add in sparkle to the season, Macy’s has a ton of options to give you that shine. I’m choosing to stick to the classic gold and black color combo this year [with a pop of red!], but you could go with any combination! Ready to make a statement? Let’s get you party ready, girlfriend!

The LBD

Tommy Hilfiger Asymmetrical Solid Jersey Dress [TTS, wearing size 4] //  Inc Kyomi Lace Pump //  Deepa Silver-Tone Crystal Drop Earrings // Inc Gold-Tone Crystal, Stone & Imitation Pearl Statement Collar Necklace //  Inc Loryy Embellished Sparkle Clutch

Let’s start with the basic: the dress [the LBD, to be specific]. I love the fit of this long sleeve dress, making it perfect for chilly winter parties. The asymmetrical hemline and fitted waist make it super flattering. The length is great for both office parties or more casual affairs. The perfect dress to add into your rotation of LBDs [ya know, because can you really ever have too many?].

The Necklace

Tommy Hilfiger Asymmetrical Solid Jersey Dress [TTS, wearing size 4] //Inc Gold-Tone Crystal, Stone & Imitation Pearl Statement Collar Necklace

Now can we talk about this necklace for a second?! Talk about giving statement necklace a whole new meaning! This necklace is ideal for adding to a dress with a simple neckline, and an easy way to dress up an entire look! From drab to fab in as many seconds as it takes you to get the clasp hooked 😉 This necklace would even be great with a simple top, jeans and heels for date night!

The Clutch + Earrings

Inc Kyomi Lace Pump //  Deepa Silver-Tone Crystal Drop Earrings // Inc Gold-Tone Crystal, Stone & Imitation Pearl Statement Collar Necklace //  Inc Loryy Embellished Sparkle Clutch

This clutch is EVERYTHING! We all know leopard is my favorite neutral, but seeing leopard in black and gold might be my new favorite combo for this print! Gorgeous! With a removable strap and plenty of room for your phone, keys, cards, and favorite lipstick inside, this cute clutch will be getting a ton of use this season!

These earrings are b-e-a-utiful and make the perfect subtle statement without being too over the top! Show off a bit of glitz on those ears, with either your hair in a fancy updo or some casual curls! Bonus: they’re on major sale!

The Shoes

 Inc Kyomi Lace Pump

Last, but not least… I am OBSESSED with these red shoes! Just look at that lace and those cutouts! They even have little gems on them to give them some shine! How could you not love them?! Plus, they have a closed toe, so the combination of the lace with the closed toe makes them the perfect sexy little shoe to wear all winter long!

Now it’s time to look through those holiday party invites and figure out what you’re going to wear! Might I suggest some statement making accessories?
