Black and White

Black and white is always a classic and with Christmas just a few days away, everyone knows that New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. For those party animals who have made plans and are popping the cork in style, try some black and white jewelry to accessorize that little black dress. While there are tons of options available for party dresses this year the little black dress is still the “go to” dress. It’s been famous and worn by everyone since Audrey Hepburn wore it so well in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Women have used the little black dress as their fall back piece for a cocktail party since Balenciaga began perfecting the style. It’s had multiple changes, sparkles, short or long but just about every woman I know has at least one awesome black dress that they wear for all occasions.

 Black and white all over!

The beauty or the problem, depending on how you look at it, is the simplicity of the little black dress. It can be dressed up or worn plain, whatever suits your fancy. It’s the perfect palette for just about any jewelry. If you’re going to a fancy party, add some sparkle. Diamonds are great but cubic zirconia is more affordable and the price allows for some really big pieces. Gemstones are always beautiful when worn with black; it really makes them stand out.

The look I like best is black and white. The black can be black diamond’s which are really hot right now. Or you can go with an enamel or gunmetal look. The white can be pearls or white diamonds, cubic zirconia or other white to clear gemstones. Pearls and a black dress are beautiful a la “Holly Golightly” and never go out of style. Wear several stands layered on top of each other and keep everything else simple. You can also wear a stack of bangles in gunmetal and some other sparkly stone because a stack of bangles always feels like a party. I’m opting for some stacking rings that come in beautiful glossy black plating, gunmetal all the way. So it doesn’t have to be complicated to dress up for that big party just remember your jewelry. Jewelry can really make an outfit stand out in a good way and who doesn’t love that?
