13 dazzling OTT accessories to be crowned ‘most extra’ at the Zoom Christmas party

13 dazzling OTT accessories to be crowned ‘most extra’ at the Zoom Christmas party

In the mood to dress up but Covid slog got you down? Focus on the neck up with these obnoxiously fabulous accessories


In case you were still holding out hope, let me be the one to burst your bubble – we won’t be getting normal Christmas parties this year. No big meals out, no cramming into pubs, no slobbering all over each other while shouting the lyrics to Fairytale of New York. I am absolutely all for postponing Christmas until next summer, when we can all enjoy a messy one with the vaccine is coursing through our veins, but for now, we’ll have to make do with the drudgery that is Zoom.

A Zoom Christmas party does sound dreadful, it’s true, but we’ve got to get our jollies where we can. And one place that is particularly jolly for me is the world of Net-a-Porter. Online shopping, it must be said, provides a brief, but sparkling, reprieve from the dullness of Covid life, and as sequinned dresses and sky-high heels feel like a waste right now, the accessories tab is where I’m focusing my attention. Let’s face it, if I’ve got to sit through an hour of awkwardly drinking a homemade cocktail with my mic on mute, I may as well look great while doing it.

While perusing the luxurious virtual aisles, here are the 13 best accessories I found to finish off a killer Zoom party outfit.
