Jazzing Up An Old Party Dress

Think the title kinda says it all: not everyone has money to fork out for a new party dress this festive period but looking good on a budget IS achievable thanks to statement jewellery. With most of these pieces being uber cheap you can afford to splash out on new shoes or a new bag to spruce up an old outfit too.

Necklaces/Collars

H&M £14.99

Collars are still BIG news and such an easy way to update a classic dress or top.

I particularly like the colour of this one.

Bad Candy £15.75

Talk about a statement necklace! This Egyptian style necklace would add a fashion punch to even the most basic of LBDs.

Talullah Tu £32

Grazia also featured this beauty and it’s easy to see why – the black and bling will go with almost any outfit and is a surefire talking point.

Bracelets/Bangles

Envious Desire £11.95

Add a touch of class with this cameo bangle

Talullah Tu £22

Piled on with other bracelets or worn on it’s own this pretty little number will be one hard working piece in your jewellery collection.

ASOS £18

Statement doesn’t always have to mean chunky: these bracelets and a cocktail ring would look glam.

Earrings

H&M £5.99

Blingtastic earrings for the price of a cocktail. Get in.

ASOS £15

With the mixture of colours in these earrings they are guaranteed to go with most of your wardrobe.

Oliver Bonas £18

These dainty earrings look very pretty.

Rings

Chelsea Doll £9

Delicate but oversized.

ChelseaDoll £10

Cos everyone needs a guardian angel to stop them from making an erse idiot of themselves at the work’s Christmas do 😉

Oliver Bonas £28

This intricate ring just screams Christmas to me!

Whilst I have included some high street stores I am such a supporter of smaller businesses/boutiques and lesser known brands which also means you have less chance of seeing someone wearing the same item as you.

The great thing about all these statement pieces is that none of them are overly festive meaning whilst they will jazz up your party dress they will work just as well with jeans and a tee come Spring.
