The end-of-year party season is finally here! If you’re stuck in a rut for what to wear, a few simple accessories could well be the answer. But you needn’t buy a brand-new outfit for every event. Upcycle your wardrobe classics with a few additional pieces for a fresh new look.
So, whether your go-to for a night out is an LBD, a maxi dress, something sequined and sparkly or a party jumpsuit or playsuit, refresh your look with the latest trending accessories – and you can shop the hottest handbags and hairpieces right here!
IF YOU’RE WEARING… AN LBD
Update it with… A statement piece
The LBD is a classic that you can have endless fun with when accessorizing. Since anything goes with black, the only limits are your imagination. Work some statement pieces into this outfit to stand out from the crowd – think hair accessories, a stunning coloured bracelet, booties instead of heels and, of course, a look-at-me gold bag.

IF YOU’RE WEARING… A MAXI DRESS
Update it with… Bold jewelry
Add some sparkle or an accent colour to your outfit with some carefully chosen accessories. A simple monotone dress can be jazzed up with a bright clutch or handbag, and a few carefully placed jewels can add a touch of elegance to your night out. We love these geometric teal earrings and the little Choupette ring, yes please!

IF YOU’RE WEARING… A JUMPSUIT

If there’s one essential accessory to wear with your jumpsuit or playsuit, it’s a belt to accentuate your waist and add some extra detail. Big, bold statement pieces of jewellery like a gold cuff can also transform your look and goes particularly well with V-neck and off-the-shoulder numbers.
