Winter is fast approaching, which can only mean one thing: get ready to party! From holiday festivities, work soirees, and family get-togethers, there are plenty of occasions to dress up and get glam.

Yet even for the most diehard fashionista, the myriad of wardrobe changes can become overwhelming. Our favorite solution to this winter woe? The ever-perfect LBD paired with this season’s hottest accessories – a simple, yet stunning combination that will certainly give you reason to celebrate.

Statement jewelry remains one of the biggest - pun intended - trends this winter. Think oversized, exaggerated everything in pastel hues and metallic shimmers. We’re loving the “look-at-me” bib necklaces, cuff bracelets, and cocktail rings, all with enough bedazzled embellishment to send those winter blues packin’. 

For a more chic look, try a little metalwork - a minimalistic pendant necklace or chunky gold chain - to instantly take an outfit from lackluster to show-stopper. And, while diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, pearls are proving they’re just as worthy of our admiration. Whether it’s a simple strand or dramatic cluster, there’s no denying the sophisticated stone makes for an eye-catching piece.

If you decide to go with more delicate jewelry, try layering and stacking different elements together to add a little extra drama to the ensemble. It’s still making a statement, just not exactly screaming it.
