5 Must-have accessories for the party season!

The other night, when I was picking out my outfit for the next “December do”, I realised the outfit is in fact the easiest to put together; it is the accessories that take up more time in the decision process. Id hate to be caught up in a situation, an hour before heading out and not having the right accessories to go with my attire.

I made a quick list of most essential holiday/party season accessories, that you all must stock-up, lest you are stuck in a situation last-minute.

Statement clutch/sling

This is the most vital part of your outfit, as it not only compliments your look, but at times is also the sole game changer. Not to forget, it also makes sure you do not end up losing your favourite exotic lip colour or your house keys.

Statement jewellery

I couldn’t sing enough praises for statement jewellery. I am big sucker for statement neck pieces/earrings or trendy ragers like knuckle rings, body harness and the latest midi rings. They make sure to add a little sparkle to your night, and even day parties for that matter.

Shoes

An obvious one, but make sure you have the right pair for this season. Not every girl is a shoe lover I understand, but it is very important you own at least one trendy pair that combines comfort along with style. Wedge heels, metallic, Ankle straps and Booties are party season staples this year, grab one of them quick time!

Outer wear

If not freezing cold, the weather at least gets a bit nippy and this is the best time to flaunt your favourite outer wear. It could be your all-bling sequinned blazer, a sporty bomber jacket, a cropped tweed jacket (remembering Coco Chanel) or even a suave, well-tailored coat. Just make sure you have one handy at all times.

Tights

Some of us situated in cities/countries with sub-zero temperatures throughout these party months have a hard time picking out that tiny little black dress, although it is the perfect choice for the night. However, thanks to these wonderful warm tights in various patterns and hues, them itsy-bitsy dresses and skirts don’t need to be shy no more. Come November, and every single high-street store has these stocked-up.
