With Christmas right around the corner, more and more festive parties will be taking place in the coming weeks. Indeed, whether with work colleagues, friends or family, there’ll be get-togethers a plenty, and glorious celebrations left, right and centre. Undoubtedly, the best thing about Christmas part season is that it offers us an opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones, re-connect with old friends and simply let our hair down and enjoy ourselves. However, there is also another marvellous benefit; that we get to put on our glad-rags – stunning outfits, jewellery, cufflinks, like those sold by One Bond Street, bangles and more, and get ourselves dressed up for the occasion.
With several parties and special occasions to attend, however, finding outfits for all of them can be quite a daunting task. You want to look your very best and you don’t want to have to repeat outfits, but you also don’t want to have to put together a number of different ensembles or splash out on clothing that you may only wear once or twice!
The best way around this is to buy basics: simple yet stylish items that can be made to look different and distinct through the addition of interesting and diverse accessories – sterling silver cufflinks, like those sold by One Bond Street, bangles, necklaces, watches, scarves, earrings and a whole host more.
For the women amongst us, a classic and sophisticated little black dress, for instance, is a wonderful piece to own for a time like this. Indeed, the incredible versatility of the little black dress means it can be made to appear astoundingly different when matched with a variety of accessories. For a subtle and chic exterior, for example, you could opt to pair your LBD with simple yet elegant sterling silver jewellery, like delicate sterling silver bangles, as sold by One Bond Street, and charming pendant necklaces. Then, for the next party, you could pair the same dress with a vibrant scarf and bigger, bulkier jewels, like colourful, chunky bangles and statement rings, for an entirely different appearance. No one will notice you’ve worn the same dress twice and you won’t have to splash out on two new outfits!
For the gentlemen amongst us, it may be slightly more difficult, however, with the clever addition of different kinds of stylish ties and diverse pairs of stunning and elegant sterling silver cufflinks, like those sold by One Bond Street, one can make a stylish shirt look remarkably different each time it is sported. One could even add stylish sterling silver bangles and statement rings into the mix to make an ensemble stand out even further.
Of course, there are a number of other ways to get around having to spend a fortune on clothing during Christmas party season – you could, for instance, wear pieces you already own, trade clothes with friends or try to find some Christmas clothing bargains. However, accessorising is undoubtedly the most enjoyable method as it enables you to be creative and playful, and inject a little character and flare into your ensembles
