The Christmas season always puts me in the mood to socialize. (generally, I’m more of a stay at home in my pyjamas kind of woman) As soon as the decorations start going up and Christmas music plays on the radio, I get excited thinking about all the upcoming parties and get-togethers with friends, family, and my lovely team at work. (we’re off for dinner and the panto tomorrow night – so that will be fun!) There's just something magical about this time of year that makes me want to dig out my brightest Christmas jumpers to wear in the office, dress up to the nines in the evening with some sparkling accessories, and celebrate with the people I love.
Christmas - The Most Wonderful Time for Parties
There are so many different kinds of Christmas get togethers from low-key family lunches to flashy formal balls and thinking about what to wear for each type of occasion is half the fun.
So, let’s think about some outfit options for some of the different occasions. A family lunch or meeting up with a small group of friends in a pub or restaurant calls for cozy elements. Maybe a festive jumper with sparkling sequined stars or snowflakes (full Santa or reindeer option if you are brave enough) paired with wide velvet trousers or maybe a long-flared skirt and boots. Make sure you make get into the spirit of the season with bright Christmas colours and luxurious fabrics.
Now, offices and workplaces can be all shapes and sizes and so can the parties! Whether you work with a small group of special people like me or are based in a big office where you have a full-on party for 100’s, December always has to include an event wear you all get together and have some fun. For our panto visit, I’ll be wearing floaty trousers and a sparkly top but for the big office party you should make the most of the chance to dress up. A darling LBD or sleek jumpsuit never fails. Or opt for a shimmering sequined or satiny top with dark trousers or a fitted skirt and some killer heels. Offset the dazzle top with minimal accessories like simple stud earrings and a metallic clutch bag.
If you're invited to a formal black tie Christmas event, pull out all the stops with an elegant floor-length dress, luxurious faux fur wrap, and the largest cocktail ring you can find! (we’ll get onto that in a minute!) Or you could channel your Great Gatsby glamour with a beaded flapper style dress and long string of pearls. No need to hold back - this is the one time of the year when you can go totally over the top and add some wow factor drama!
Cavendish French Jewellery: Affordable Luxury
As I’m sure you expect me to say, the key to any great Christmas party look lies not just in the outfit but in the carefully chosen accessories which add that extra touch of glamour. And what better way to complete your personal style than with some well chosen sparkling jewellery?
For those casual get togethers with family and friends I suggest some drop earrings to complement the colours you are wearing (not tacky light up Christmas trees or snowmen though) How about our Ruby Starflower Earrings and Pendant or our Emerald Vintage Star Necklace and earrings – both wonderful Christmassy colours. A classic handmade silver bangle always looks fabulous, understated and elegant. If you want to keep it simple, just add a stylish silver necklace and some stud earrings and your look is complete – how about our Snowflake Necklace which is perfect for this time of year?
For big fancy office parties, maybe a matching set of silver earrings and necklace. Our Lattice Teardrop Earrings look fabulous with your hair worn up and the necklace sits beautifully in a deep V shaped neckline. Perfect to add that touch of vintage jewellery style. If you want to add some colour to match your outfit – choose for an array of colours which replicate fine gem stones in our Starlight Collection.
And the black-tie events? I said I’d come back to rings and our customers love our bold sparkling cocktail rings. Our Silver Vintage Ring would be perfect with your Hollywood diva look - available in 5 different colours and with matching necklaces and earrings. The ultimate party cocktail ring with a stone that sparkles and catches the light like a true gem. Our Emerald Cut Solitaire Ring is also pretty amazing – maybe have one on each hand and then complete the look with a classic tennis bracelet with clear or rainbow coloured cubic zirconia stones. Don’t forget the beautiful manicure too!
At Cavendish French we have a wide range of silver jewellery to make sure you have the perfect accessory no matter what your Christmas event, style or budget. Choose from dainty silver studs, bold chandelier earrings, elegant tennis bracelets and statement rings. Our handmade 925 sterling silver designs are set with brilliant AAA* quality cubic zirconia have all the twinkle and sparkle to match fine gem jewellery. Seriously, no one would guess they aren't genuine diamonds or precious rubies, emeralds and sapphires. Gorgeous accessories at affordable prices so, you can dazzle like a star without breaking the bank. Take a look at our Party Sparkle Collection to browse though some of our seasonal favourites.
