I love a good holiday party, but what I love even more is getting dressed up for a good holiday party. We’re still a few weeks away from the festivities that come with the season, but I wanted to share this metallic dress I’ll be wearing for various occasions. There’s something about the holidays that always makes want to get a little bit more dressed up than usual, whether it’s sequins, faux fur or a fitted metallic dress. Today’s post is with the last one and I am loving the jewelry I chose to pair with this festive dress.
This metallic low-cut Express dress immediately stood out to me when I was online shopping for a holiday dress. In a sea of over the top sequins and simple dresses, this one stood out to me. It was no where boring, it is fitted, has mild shoulder pads and is soft enough that you can accessorize with some fashion jewelry. I recently came across a new jewelry website, www.sequin-nyc.com, which carries a variety of fashion jewelry from tassel earrings to cuff bracelets to gem rings.
I chose to pair this metallic dress with subtle jewelry but found that the jewelry was still bold enough to make a statement without over powering the dress. For my necklace, I decided to go with the “Charm key and Crystal Gem Neckalce” and chose the crystal gem instead of a colored gem because of the dress color. I usually prefer to choose neutral gems to be able to pair them with more outfits. This necklace is also the perfect gift for mom, a best friend or a sister.
To continue with the flow of the dress and the necklace, I paired the Crystal Gem ring with the rest of the outfit. It’s a major statement ring but also ideal for stacking. I went with the crystal gem to pair the necklace but also to match the look I was going for. But, if you want a twist I think it would also pair beautifully with this green gem.
These accessories would make beautiful stocking stuffers or little gifts to add to your holiday shopping. Currently, you can get 20% off your Sequin-NYC purchase with code “MELANIE20”.
