The Art of Subtle Sparkle November 29 2015

However you do Christmas, do it in style!

The high street would have you believe that it started in September, but we think the recent cold snap means it has now officially begun; the countdown to Christmas. Advent calendars are eagerly waiting to be opened and that bottle of seasonal Baileys is very tempting.

Drinks with friends, after work parties and Christmas day with the family, there are plenty of opportunities to be glamorous and add a little sparkle to your usual style in December.

If you're aiming to get through the festive period looking stylish and elegant then we need to step away from the flashing Rudolf earrings. As for wrapping random pieces of tinsel around your neck...maybe best we leave that level of adornment to the Christmas tree.

If you are looking for accessory inspiration, you can't go wrong with stunning silver jewellery. Wear statement chunky pieces to add drama to a little black dress or jumpsuit. For a luxe daytime look, team simple polished silver jewellery alongside soft silk or leather separates.

Add the finishing touch to a beautifully detailed sequinned top or skirt and let delicate pieces stand out against feather details and gorgeous cashmere.

If you are investing in something new this time of year why not treat yourself to jewellery you'll love to wear months after the last mince pies have been eaten.
