As the weather becomes colder and the days draw in, those of us who still want to sparkle can make the most of the Christmas party season with the right accessories.
December might seem like the month of endings, but take a look outside… frost is sparkling on the grass, Christmas lights are twinkling in windows, the moon is peeping out from behind glistening clouds. Its the season of light and sparkle.
A little shimmer here and there can give a woman a chance to shine. Choosing just the right clutch or purse, to match with statement earrings in gold hues will set off your outfit and even take you from office to office party.
Here are just a few gold coloured items to choose from.
Handcrafted leather clutch
Its true that a woman needs a decent sized purse to carry everything she needs and this large zipped pouch is ideal. Deep gold with yellow spots gives it a funky edge, while the shape is perfect for tucking under you arm as you sashay into the room. It is hand printed and can even double up as a make-up bag for use at home - but we are pretty certain you’ll be wanting to show this off. We love the story behind how this clutch is made, by designer Rosie Drake Knight in her studio in Devon.
Semi circle earrings
Statement earrings are well and truly back in style and gold is the perfect accompaniment for your Christmas outfit. These gorgeous semi circle earrings are in a fan shape and will add accent to your dress (no further accessories are needed). Both smooth and textured, you really won’t want to hide them.
