Sparkly party accessories to see you through the festive season

Sparkly party accessories to see you through the festive season

Don we now our gay apparel.

T’is the season to panic buy eight sequin dresses in one manic shopping trip – or, to cheat the system and just wear your normal clothes, with added sparkly party accessories. Of course you can still wear black trousers and sweaters everywhere, just for the next two months, you’ll have to wear them with spangly earrings and embellished heels. Once you have at least one sequinned clutch bag, dangly earring, glittery hair accessory or rhinestone-studded heel in your wardrobe, you’ll always look like you made a festive effort.

Save yourself the trouble of online panic shopping a sequin pencil skirt that requires a pair of professional underwear that cost more than the skirt 48 hours before your Christmas party and then sitting all day on the doorstep waiting for the postman to arrive. Instead, buy one red lipstick or glittery eyeshadow and one statement, over-the-top, spangled accessory. We’ve rounded up the best sparkly party accessories to see you through the festivities below.
