The dinner party

The more sedate setting of the dinner party is where one or two key costume jewelry pieces will really come into their own. The trick is to be bold without being overpowering, noticed without knocking everyone out, in short slightly less is certainly more.

The work party

If you want to shine at your work do for the right reasons, err on the side of caution and pick one key costume jewelry piece and work your outfit around it. Sure your style might be acres more adventurous but a work function is not the place to debut your nighttime style.

The first date

A first date is a veritable minefield or possibilities. Talking too much is a big no no as is giving the date the silent treatment, similarly opening the ‘I’m really into fashion’ drawer too early mightput them off. Give the date a taster of your style, reel them in with a few interesting pieces, leaving them to want date two to get more of your quirky, spot-on style.
