New Year’s Eve is all about jazzing yourself up. So instead of splurging on sparkly sequins, glitter shoes and blue velvet tuxedos, why not break out your trustee LBD and let your earrings do the talking?

New Year’s Eve finishes off festive season with a bang, but it also means you’re super broke post-Christmas party craziness, endless gift-giving, and a messy Stephen’s night – who has money to spend on yet another party dress? But when you’re armed with a pair of conversation-starting earrings, no one will even notice you’re wearing last year’s dress. You could be wearing an all-black ensemble, but throw on a pair of red-tasselled earrings, and hey, you’re a new woman. With so many fancy options, the struggle to pick out the one to complete your New Year’s Eve outfit is real. From a gleaming gold pairs, pearly whites and robust chandeliers, there’s countless pairs to elevate (and finish off) your New Year’s Eve look.
