The Best Handbags And Accessories To Give Your Style That Holiday Boost

Statement Accessories To Give Your Style A Holiday Boost:

This holiday season, when it comes to womenswear opulence, timeless style and modern accessories —will shed something bright on your overall look. In fact, as the song says, ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year’ to accessorize and keeping the look merry and bright.

What’s nice about the line-up of these selected product offerings is that they can be worn with ease and grace —right into 2022.

Let’s face it ladies, when it comes to dressing around the holidays, be careful not to wear too much green nor red. In short, others will perceive you as silly not serious.

On the contrary, I suggest to plan your style and make an entrance. Tis the season to make an entrance. And quite frankly; who doesn’t like making an entrance during this festive time of year as we reunite with family and friends. More to my point, families have a lot to be thankful for at this time. Celebratory dressing can be as pragmatic as wearing a modern black dress with a luscious green or red printed silk scarf.

Ahead, my women’s fashion editor Emma Cunnington and I selected accessory trends that will bring a bit of sparkle and excitement to your social gatherings.

Below, explore and shop these statement accessories that will give you the night divine!

La Aeaea– “We believe that Circe is the most representative product of our assortment.

On the mythical island of Aeaea, located on the Western coast of Italy, lived the goddess and sorceress, Circe-The Daughter of Helios, god of the sun, and Perse, the ocean nymph. Using pearls, as the protagonist of our brand, is fundamental. In some cultures, pearls are used to help women connect with their inner Goddess. With our genderless approach, we want everyone to feel connected with their inner God or Goddesses. They are symbolic of wisdom, offer protection and good luck. Pearls enhance personal integrity, promote faith, loyalty, and purity. La Aeaea’s pearls should be embraced and worn daily, stirring away from the traditional approach of saving them for a special occasion. We want to share with all our clients the pearls’ magic powers. Thus, each of our necklaces is named after a Roman or Greek goddess. And as supportive goddesses do, La Aeaea donates a percentage of each sale to NOW, National Organization for Women.” Isabella Fanciulli, founder and designer of La Aeaea: $175
