The holiday party season has kicked off. You’re reviewing your December calendar, and you may notice that you have a black tie affair for work that is approaching fast!

It’s IMPERATIVE that you look A-MA-ZING because you're looking to represent yourself professionally. You want to stand out but not overdo it. Simply put, you want to keep it classy. How can you set yourself apart? To start off, a black fitted cocktail dress is the perfect canvas for your jewelry choice. My favorite, anything by Karen Millen. All you need are some key pieces to achieving that talked-about look. First you should consider investing in a big, fabulous cocktail ring. What’s perfect about an ‘attention getting’ ring is that it gets attention and lots of it! A great place to find a signature ring is by scoping out estate jewelry. The pieces and the prices you'll find are surprising, with some items starting around $150. Check out hundreds of cocktail rings we currently have in our estate collection.


With estate jewelry, the choices are endless and no two pieces are alike. Look for a pair of stunning earrings next. Even if your ears are not pierced, there are plenty of vintage clip-on earrings out there. Take a look at our collection of beautiful estate earrings.

To finish off, try the Starburst Collection by David Yurman. If you love to sparkle and shine, a Starburst piece is the perfect solution. Picture this - you're holding your champagne glass and the stars capture the light perfectly (they even resemble a sparkly snowflake) then the conversation turns immediately to you. You can see some of my favorite Starburst pieces below (On the Left):


For the man, the best accessory is a noteworthy timepiece. Picture your sharply tailored Milano Wool Zegna suit paired with Ferragamo Oxfords and a Tom Ford cologne. Then say these words with me, “Rolex GMT Master II." Your watch will become the conversation topic. Believe me, if it doesn’t, guaranteed everyone will be wishing they had it!


Be bold with your choices and have fun with your looks. Feel on point when you're being photographed. When you attend those highly anticipated holiday parties, never apologize for being too prepared. Believe me when I say that you'll warmly welcome the compliments for your meticulously planned look! #StylebyJanika
