What would the holidays be without a bit of sparkle? Just in time for this most festive of seasons, our Jewelry Capsule Collection is here, an insane selection of vintage jewelry and accessories you don’t want to miss. Each exceptional piece was hand-picked by our curators for its chic and unique vibes, so you pretty much can’t go wrong. To get the accessorizing party started, here are a few ways to work fabulous vintage bling into your look for the holidays, or just any old Tuesday in need of a little glitz.
#1: Dial-Up A Simple Look
Statement necklaces have been a longstanding staple for the fashion set, and it’s easy to see why. A classic all-black look, or even a basic T-shirt, is instantly infused with serious drama with the addition of a major necklace. Newer on the scene is the statement earring, featuring bold colors and shoulder-grazing drops. Think of both pieces as your fastest route from simple outfit to a party-ready look.
#2: Stack Attack
When it comes to cuffs and cocktails rings, it’s all about multiples. Just ask fashion icon Iris Apfel. There are no rules other than finding pieces that make you smile, so resin can mix with metals alongside a few “gems” if you’re willing to throw caution to the wind. For something a bit more understated but no less fun, go for all gold and stack’em high.
#3: Put a Scarf On It
Silk scarves are back in a big way. Then again, when has a vintage Hermès scarf ever been a bad idea? Add one to your favorite handbag for an add-on pop of color, or study up on the perfect way to tie a silk scarf around your neck (or head for a Jackie O-style answer to a bad hair day). Whichever way you use it, this timeless accessory will always lend your look a chic finishing touch.
