The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to dress up and wear something special. Unfortunately, 8 million of our holiday outfits end up in landfill because one in three women consider clothes to be "old" after only a couple of wears. Our bad habit of buying a new outfit for every special occasion instead of rewearing what we already own, is turning our clothes into disposable goods.
If your holiday plans involve dinner with friends, work nights out, and celebrating Christmas with the family; chances are you're thinking about what to wear. One of the simplest ways you can be more sustainable during the holidays is by wearing what's already in your wardrobe. With a little help of the right jewellery, your outfit will look and feel brand new again.
This is our Christmas style guide with jewellery styling tips and the best jewellery to wear this Christmas. If you're looking for holiday outfit inspiration, look no further!
Jewellery Styling Tips For Christmas
Keep Jewellery Simple
Considering you'll probably be on your feet, greeting guests, cooking dinner, and dancing; you'll need fuss-free jewellery. So while Christmas is a great opportunity for maximalist styling, make sure it doesn't get in the way of your fun. No one wants to be untangling necklaces or searching for earrings lost on the floor!
Layering is an excellent way to get the most out of your jewellery. Two or three necklaces layered together, or a set of stacking rings can make as much impact as a giant statement jewellery piece - and they'll be far more comfortable. Our guide to layering necklaces with a necklace detangler will help you find your personal style.
Keep Jewellery Clean
Clean jewellery not only looks better, you'll extend its life and get more wear out of each piece. If you haven't cleaned your jewellery in a while, the holiday season is a great opportunity to do. Our jewellery care guide will give you all the advice you need to clean your jewellery properly.
The Best Jewellery To Wear For Christmas
What Jewellery To Wear With A Christmas Jumper
If you're someone who loves to embrace the festive tradition of wearing a novelty Christmas jumper with bold colours and bright flashing lights; you'll need to pick your jewellery carefully. We say "go big or go home." Embrace the boldness and wear a pair of statement earrings with your novelty jumper.
If your style is more sophisticated with a sleek style of jumper, perhaps with a little shimmer to the fabric; choose a chic chain necklace and classic studs. For extra colour, opt for a crystal necklace, textured hoop earrings, or several stacking rings. It's the perfect way to embrace the glitz and glamour of the holiday season, without going overboard.
What Jewellery To Wear To The Christmas Party
No matter which Christmas party you're heading to, whether it's with family and friends or coworkers, your outfit choice should reflect your true personal style. Dress up in a way that makes you feel your best self, and wear your favourite jewellery pieces with extra sparkle.
Whether it's a necklace, ,a href="/collections/rings">rings, or pair of earrings you choose to wear, there's something to match everyone's taste. Diamond jewellery and gemstones featuring semi-precious stones are especially suited to the holiday season. Matching jewellery sets are a foolproof way of pairing jewellery with your outfit; or you could mix and match from our range.
What Jewellery To Wear On Christmas Day
The jewellery you choose to wear on Christmas really depends on how you plan on spending the day. If you prefer to spend the day in pyjamas or loungewear, or something dressier? Whatever your plans are, your jewellery needs to follow suit. Keep your jewellery simple and elegant, and you won't go wrong.
We recommend a chain necklace and simple studs, or matching jewellery set. If you want, you can switch your jewellery up for something dressier at dinner time. Our statement jewellery is comfortable to wear and won't overpower your look.
