For a Chic Cocktail Party: Alexandria Button Earring, Suzanna Dai
Suzanna Dai specializes in jewelry and accessories inspired by old-world travel and vintage glamour. These exquisite earrings evoke ‘Mad Men’ era glamour – making them perfect for a cocktail party or decadent dinner party. Made in rhinestones and gold metal wire, we’d pair these with an elegant updo and a sixties style shift – accessorize with a champagne cocktail.
For a Girly Night Out: Tinker Blue Clutch, Wilbur & Gussie
Founded by school friends Lucy Lyons and Brett Tyne (and named after their pets) the Wilbur & Gussie team know how to make a bag for a fun night out. With defining features such as jewel brooch fastenings and eye-popping prints, their clutches are always glam and girly, but we think this hand-sewn satin clutch fits the bill for New Year’s. In a deep blue or pretty purple, the sequin detail will add plenty of sparkle to your outfit – pair with your dancing shoes and a flirty frock, and you’re dancefloor ready. The bag is just big enough to stash New Years essential – like a camera!
For Dinner and Dancing: Ruiz Necklace, Paula Mendoza
Got two places to be tonight? Make your outfit work with your jam packed social calendar. This boho necklace, made by Columbian born designer Paula Mendoza, features 3 raw emeralds (from her birthplace, naturally) surrounded by gold. Wear it as a necklace to a dressy dinner, and then when you’re ready to hit the dance floor, adjust the length and make it into a super cool belt.
For an Intimate Night In, Liz Bracelet, Gemma Redux
Who says you have to go out for a knockout New Years? There’s nothing better than spending the evening simply with the ones you love. For a relaxed dinner or get-together with family and friends, this eye-catching bracelet is edgy but not over the top.
