New Years Eve isn’t just a regular night, darlings. It’s a night to sparkle! And what better way to sparkle than with fabulous accessories. So to ring in 2018 I think you should go shopping in your closet, but add some bold statement accessories. Adding statement jewelry to an outfit allows you to do something that I don’t ordinarily do, jump on super trendy pieces without breaking the bank. Statement jewelry can be expensive, but not nearly as much as the real deal. Here is a roundup of what to wear for New Years Eve jewelry at several price points to help you sparkle.
I know from past posts many of you LOVE statement necklaces and these can turn a basic black dress into a New Years Eve ready ensemble in a flash.

I love enamel bangles, but for New Years I think you should go with something that has a little bit more sparkle than color. Metallics and stones are a great way to go to make a statement.

Adding a pop to your outfit with a fun bag for your belongings is a great way to liven up a New Years Eve look. I went with clutches because for events a clutch seems less cumbersome than a handbag for the evening. Of course, if you really want to be footloose and fancy free, your date’s pocket is also an acceptable place to stash your belongings. My husband Shelly knows this all too well!

As for what you are wearing with these sparkly pieces, I think a lot of the same rules I ran through in my piece on “How to dress for a holiday party after 50” still apply. Think metallics and velvet and menswear, while avoiding kitschy pieces.
New Years Eve marks the end of the holiday season of celebrating so go out with some sparkle, darlings!
